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 La Bohème 2015 gamay d'Auvergne by Patrick Bouju.

Should you find that, despite everything, the knife you have received is not to your liking, we undertake to reimburse you in full (excluding return carriage costs, for which you will be charged).
All our knives come with a lifetime guarantee against any abnormal breakage.
Because we design our knives with top-quality materials and we assemble them using tried and tested techniques. Our knives are unbreakable under normal conditions of use.
