Le Français is a knife that has a rare elegance that allows it to be as comfortable in the city and countryside.
Perceval uses the very latest, cutting-edge metallurgy technology for its Damascus blades. The steel is laminated using powder technology. This crystalline-scale sintering method preserves the fine-grained texture and makes the alloy highly resistant to corrosion.
On Le Français model, the Damascus derives from twisted bars that, after grinding, reveal the fine wavy lines and star shapes that characterize the "Twist" motif.

Straightening, assembly, shaping, polishing, finishing and sharpening are all handcrafted in our Thiers workshop.
