It was not until 1920 that Eloi decided to establish his own factory, - Eloi Pernet. Eloi quickly became renowned for its craft. In 1925 Eloi won the *Meilleur Ouvrier de France* (Best Craftsman of France) award for a multi-blade knife. The following year, he and his artisans again won the *Meilleur Ouvier de France* award.
