Birch is a wood native to temperate regions that belongs to the Betulaceae family. Birch (bjørk or bjerk) is a Norwegian national symbol, and has been used by romantic artists on many occasions. For example, we can cite the "Forêt de bouleau" painted by the Czech artist Antonín Slavíček in 1897.
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.
