# 4861 / Vintage Eloi Pernet/ Inoxidable Grape Scissors


Charles Louis Eloi Pernet belonged to the third generation of knife makers in Biesles. In 1901, at the age of 12, he became an apprentice in a local cutlery. 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. The World began to take notice as Hermes, Dupont, Vuitton, and Dunhill all sought Eloi fine craftsmanship. By 1937 Pernet had won first prize in the "Arts & Techniques" contest in the Expositions Universelles de Paris. In 1959, Eloi obtained the Medaille d Or de *Qualité France* (gold medal of "Quality France"). Charles Pernet died in 1963, leaving behind a unique discipline for quality and fine craftsmanship.

This vintage Eloi Pernet grape scissors feature tapered and curved blades especially studied to permit a more easy vintaging and grape-cleaning. Scissors have blunt tips, so that they won't puncture the fruit. They have beautifully shaped Art Deco style bows and are stamped on the front with the Eloi Pernet's mark and on the rear *Inoxidable* beneath a *star*. )old Eloi’s mark used before the wording inox).

They are stamped with the *pairing marks* the number which you can see  on the interior of each of the blades and that indicates that the two blades  have been perfectly adjusted to form a pair. it is an important detail to judge the quality of a pair of scissors.

The condition is excellent with no dents or repairs and they still have most of their original polished steel surface.

They measure 13 cm long
