Inspired by the XIXth century’s knives, the sommelier designed by l’Atelier Perceval, with its sleek and pure lines, innovates with its pinched worm, and an helical bit.
The materials used for the handle have been selected for their naturally long lifetime and the high-end steel chosen for the blade ensures an extremly sharp edge.
The 6 ellipsis custom-made bit helps the insertion into the cork.
To realize this handle, Atelier Perceval used the interior of oak wine barrels, from its winemaker friends.
The barrel chosen to create this specific knife used to be tanked with Cheverny Les Ardilles 2017 by Hervé Villemade.
