The idea was born to return to the source of a knife's function: its cutting power. A table knife should be designed with as much care as a pocket knife. After some discussion of the project during the evening, it was concluded that this knife would share the same silhouette as the model that had inspired it, and it was admitted that much of this creative energy had been mischievously inspired by the wine that the friends had shared during the meal. A primeur wine with an alcohol content of 9.47°, made by one of the guests: Stéphane Majeune from the Domaine de Peyra. A wine that would give its name to the knife: the 9.47.
Table knife 9.47
Polyacetal is a high-end polymer (plastic) with technical characteristics and physical properties that are particularly suitable for kitchen cutlery. In contrast to standard plastics, it is highly resistant to wear, impact and acid attacks from food.
Yves Charles, then a starred Parisian restaurant owner, inspired by the simplicity of the Le Français model, created his table knife, the 9.47. Born from a simple idea: to make a table knife with the same qualities as a closing knife. It is made to seduce lovers of beautiful cuts and ergonomics, as comfortable cutting a squid breast as a thick flank steak with shallots. Simple and elegant, the 9.47 knife is distinguished by its pure and timeless lines.
