PERCEVAL - Inspired by the simplicity of the “Le Français” model, Yves Charles created his “signature” table knife, the 9.47, while working as a Michelin-starred restaurateur in Paris. The idea was simple: produce a table knife with the same qualities as a folding knife. This model is designed to appeal to lovers of knives with excellent cutting power combined with an attractive, user-friendly shape, that is equally good at cutting soft white squid meat or a thick steak with shallots.
We first found out about Perceval Steak Knives from New York Times writer Florence Fabricant. They’re made of simple, non-serrated stainless blades, and wood or colored handles in Thiers, France. The wood knives, sold separately, are available for $175 (olivewood), $220 (ironwood), and up to $990 (mammoth ivory) at Table Art.
