LE THIERS ® LE THIERS ® - snakewood

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.

Pour les 20 ans, l’Atelier Perceval se devait de créer un LE THIERS ® à son image. Grâce à ses lignes épurées, ses courbes harmonieuses et son guillochage simple, nous avons apporté une touche de modernité à ce couteau de tradition Thiernoise.
