The Ironwood from Arizona (Olneya tesota or Palo Fierro), one of the flagship materials at Perceval, belongs to the Fabaceae family. It can’t be worked until it dies in a natural way and dries on site for about 3000 years. It's a semi-fossil wood naturally dark with well marked veins. This wood comes from the Petrified Forest of Arizona, inscribed on the Tentative List of World Heritage in 2008.
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.
- Perceval pocket knives are not dishwasher safe nor washing machine safe (oversight in pockets!)
- 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.
