Le Français is a knife that has a rare elegance that allows it to be as comfortable in the city and countryside.

Norwegian birch is a sacred and emblematic material in Laplander culture. It has a finely interwoven grain and delicate patterning. Its extraordinary lightness and clear color give the "Le Français" a rather ethereal aspect.

Birch wood is a temperate part of the family Betulaceae. Birch (Björk Bjerk) is a Norwegian national symbol, used many times by the romantic painters.

Inspired by a 17th century knife design, Perceval has taken the core features from the original design and adapted them to suit your needs. Thus, the "Le Français" model faithfully reflects the French lifestyle, combining practicality with elegance. The ideal companion in everyday life, equally essential both in town and country. With this knife, you will get as much pleasure out of slicing a dried sausage as cutting into a juicy Rossini tournedos steak.


- Perceval pocket knives are not dishwasher safe nor washing machine safe (oversight in pockets!)

Care instructions:

- After use, humidify the blade, wipe it and fold up it.
- In case of water contact, quickly wipe the handle.
- A regular sharpening with a sharpening steel or a hone allows to keep the original edge.
- You receive a sleeve with each Perceval pocket knife. It protects the knife from impacts and frictions.
