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.
A creation of our own design, Le Grand illustrates the knowhow behind Perceval knives.
Its chiseled silhouette and high-quality materials is strongly reminiscent of old 18th century elegance. A paean to fine dining, this knife is integral to our culture for Rabelaisian feasts and epicurean banquets, making it the essential gourmet's tool.
Make the most out of using this impressive knife!
- 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.
