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

The pistachio is a local wood which has the distinction of being able to work with sapwood offering equivalent density to his heart. This method allows to rediscover this relatively unknown wood giving it a sharp contrast.

The pistachio turpentine tree (Pistacia terebinthus) of the Anacardiaceae family, is a native French Mediterranean wood. This shrub from three to five meters has a hardwood that is often used in woodwork and inlay for making ornaments.

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" Damascus model faithfully reflects the French lifestyle, combining practicality with jewel-like elegance. With this knife, you will get as much pleasure out of slicing a dried sausage as cutting into a juicy Rossini tournedos steak.

Precautions:

- 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 it up.
- 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.
