Just returned from France where I fell in love with the knives and flatware made by Laguiole. Was not in the region they are made so did not buy there. Have been investigating web sites and also have seen what look to be Laguiole cutlery sets in new Williams Sonoma catalog. Before I take the (very expensive) plunge, would love to hear any opinions on this subject....are there places that sell at a discount? Can someone recommend a source???? How does one choose between the seemingly endless array of options with this product? AND: Would I dare put them in the dishwasher??????
