The forge technique used on Series L Damascus steel reveals concentric circles that resemble rosebuds. This is what gave this design its name.
Perceval has pushed back the boundaries in terms of technology and design. For the very first time, craftsmen have been able to sculpt the whole block of material and produce a handle in solid meteorite. Measuring 205 mm x 21 mm x 10 mm this stellar diamond, is sure to attract admiring glances due to its everlasting shine and the elegance of its unique geometric shapes.
As well as it’s everlasting shine the other positive things are that it comes with a lifetime guarantee, and also the fact that every single one is a one off. The down sides though as the fact that there is a 3 month wait to get your hands on one, on and the fact that you won’t get much change form £3,800.
