A mighty step up from your common-or-garden pocketknife, the Meteor comprises of a beautifully forged, exceptionally strong, 90mm Damascus steel blade and a handle crafted from a solid lump of space rock. Meteorite doesn’t come cheap, but each knife, handmade by bespoke French company Perceval, is utterly unique and the sharp lines of the handle contrast beautifully with the natural swirl of the steel. Luxury beyond reason, but Brogue expects little else from a company that also makes a knife using fossilised mammoth ivory.
