Gorgeous Golden Gate Knife Packs The Same Steel As Its Namesake

Although it was crafted in France, Laguiole's beautiful Golden Gate Bridge folding pocket knife was inspired the iconic red bridge spanning the San Francisco Bay. And in addition to a handle designed to look like it's made of criss-crossing girders, the knife is forged from the same steel used in the actual bridge that's stood the test of time since 1937.

So given the bridge has survived storms, earthquakes and countless other challenges in its 75-year history, there's a good chance this knife will have no problem tackling the occasional apple or crudely whittled marshmallow stick. And the recognisable handle design also serves the lighten the knife so it weighs in at just 106g. It's just too bad the price tag is considerably heftier at $US300.
