Snakewood

Elegant pocket knives


Snakewood (Brosimum guianense or Speckled Letter) is a precious Guyanese wood of the Moraceae family. Its reddish-brown tiger wood is very dense (it does not float) and can be reminiscent of snake skin patterns. This is why it is called Snakewood in English and Schlangenholz in German. However, it should not be confused with Guiana serpent wood, which is less dense.

Inspired by a 17th century knife, Perceval has extracted the essentials to make a tool that adapts to your desires. The Le Français model reflects the French way of life, combining practicality and elegance. An ideal companion in everyday life, as indispensable in the city as in the country, it will give you as much pleasure in cutting a sausage as a tournedos Rossini.
