Perceval is a brand that specializes in unique, handcrafted knives that are worthy of proud display rather than being tucked away in a silverware drawer when they’re not being used. One of their new offerings is the L08 Damascus Blade Meteor Scales, the most novel feature of which is the fact that their handles are crafted from an actual meteorite.
“For the first time,” according to the Perceval website, “craftsmen have been able to sculpt the whole block of material and produce a handle in solid meteorite.” Each of the L08 Damascus Blade Meteor Scales is made by hand from the meteoric material, and as a result no two blades look exactly alike.
The L08 Damascus Blade Meteor Scales are a not-cheap five grand at the Perceval online store here, where you can get a lot more information on the knife as well as a host of accessories (like a sheath made from ostrich leather). But if you’re looking to splurge for Wold Newton Day this year, you could probably do worse.
