Inspired by the XIXth century’s knives, the sommelier designed by l’Atelier Perceval, with its sleek and pure lines, innovates with its pinched toad, 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 extremely 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 handle is in Arizona Ironwood Burl, a precious wood. It is one of the heaviest and densest wood in the world. Under light golden reflections appear in the essence of the wood.
