A paean to fine dining, this knife is fully part of our culture for Rabelaisian feasts and epicurean banquets, making it the essential gourmet's tool.
The blade of the Le Grand is decorated with the Vinland motif, whose thickly defined traits provide contrast and give this knife its typical character and finesse.
The handle is made of carbon fiber, a modern, lightweight and durable material. Perceval gives its carbon fiber a unique lustrous finish by using a particularly rigorous polishing technique. The true nature of this high quality material gives it exceptional resistance to impacts and scratches.
Supplied with a made-to-measure full-grain leather sheath in a wood presentation case.
The spring and liners are decorated with a guillochage by our cutlers (French filework engraving technic).

This extremely resistant material consists of carbon atoms aligned in microscopic fibers (5 to 15 micrometers in diameter). Several thousand carbon fibers are wound together to form a yarn, which can be used as such or woven and amalgamated with epoxy resin. This assembly is characterized by high tensile strength and compressive strength despite low density (1.7 to 1.9).
For many years now, Perceval is forging its identity through a judicious balance between cutting-edge design and a century old tradition. This original mind is especially visible in our working methods where buffalo leather polishing benches and needle files rub shoulders with laser beam and wire EDM technology.
The "Le Grand Damascus" model perfectly illustrate this subtle alchemy. Its finely chiseled silhouette and high-quality materials conjure up 18th century elegance and immoderation. It enables Perceval to position itself as a manufacturer of luxury goods on a hitherto unexplored market. This folding knife rouses people's curiosity by shaking up the norms. The handles are exclusively made with the highest quality materials and the Damascus blade is assembled on invisible ball bearings. This model stays true to its heritage while displaying a discreet contemporary aspect.
