Boxwood burl

Grandfather style pocket knife with a nice retro style.


Boxwood is a wood from temperate regions of the Buxaceae family (Buxus sempervirens), with a fine and tight grain. It has been used since ancient times for many tools and utility objects. Boxwood is lemon-yellow in colour and is remarkably hard and fine. We use boxwood burl in particular for its greater richness of shade and detail.

Perceval revives one of these old pocket knife models with the "French Vintage" edition. Its style is reminiscent of our grandfathers' pocket knives, the indispensable object that was always at the bottom of the pocket. This is a two-piece folding knife with a corkscrew, a 19c27 blade and a flat lock system. It seduces by its charm and its retro design!
