Allow us to introduce ourselves…
We’re a small team of skilled knife-makers based in our workshop on the edge of the Savernake Forest in Wiltshire, England, crafting all of our knives by hand and to your exact specification.
If you call, email or pop in to visit us, the same people you speak to, hear from, or meet will be the very same people making your knife. We pride ourselves on providing a truly first class customer service – even our knives are referred to by the name of who we’re making them for, never by order number.
When you invest in a Savernake knife, you’re buying a knife independently tested by CATRA to be in the top 2.5% of knives in the world – rated ‘Outstanding’ for both initial sharpness and durability. We make chef knives for Michelin starred chefs, enthusiastic amateurs and family cooks the world over, adding joy to meal prep every day.
Our signature concave blade profile results in knives that weigh less, cut better and stay sharp for longer. Guaranteed for life and with three years’ complimentary servicing and sharpening included.
Whether you’re searching for your perfect knife, or on the elusive hunt for a hard-to-buy for family member or friend – choose from our range of personalised custom knives, bespoke or custom knife gift invitations, special edition or ready made knives and accessories.

Nothing makes us happier than when our customers write to tell us what they think of our knives…here are just some of the many wonderful reviews we’ve received.
Adam Farmer – February 2021
“I just wanted to let you know that I got the knife yesterday afternoon and thank you for the effort, it looks and feels fantastics. So much so, I changed our shopping list for more recipes with more knife work just to use it!”
Andrew Cartwright – May 2020
“Just received my second chef knife, the savernake signature knife. I must say these knifes are the best I have had in 35 years of chefing…”
Sam Brown – May 2020
“Just a quick note to say thank you for getting the knife over to me so promptly last week. I’m really please with it, it’s an absolute pleasure to use. Although it’s actually caused a few kitchen arguments already as both my partner and I argue over who’s turn it is to do the chopping….makes was can be a chore into something to look forward too.”
Carol Mannheim – March 2021
“I have been meaning to write you and tell you how much I have been enjoying my knives since moving to Canada. We live in a very rural area. There are lots of farm stands and fresh, locally grown veg around us. I have enjoyed ‘putting up’ corn, tomatoes and fruit for the freezer in the summer. This year, I was truly blessed with the large and sharp knives I had to work with. Now that I have a longer blade that is actually sharp, I can do the job much more efficiently. And faster. I feel a little joy in my heart every time I pick up one of my knives. I feel blessed to own them.”
Stevie Heyes – February 2021
“I received my knife last weekend. Firstly, love the engraving, my logo looks fabulous! The overall appearance of the knife is beautiful. I used it on Sunday and have pretty much deferred to using it for everything now. Look I’m not a pro chef but I love using equipment that just works and this knife is so lovely. Balance and manoeuvrability are just sublime, I own Japanese and European knives and nothing I have feels like the Savernake, it’s hard to explain. I really did wonder if it would be £350 good and it has totally surpassed my expectations. I love it. Thanks for a stunning knife, I do truly love it.”
Daniel Pearce, Butcher – July 2020
“I must say I was nervous buying a knife without even holding it but glad I took the gamble.”
Ian Prosser – April 2020
“Hello good folk, I now have two Savernake knives, my chef’s knife and your filleting knife. I thought I should let you know that I love them. They sing when honing them. No other knife has this quality. I have a fair collection, but none sound as beautiful as well as being the best to use. They bring me delight everyday. So thank you for making things that create delight.”
Rhona Reid – June 2020
“The most beautiful knife arrived this afternoon. Neil was here to open it and it certainly exceeded my expectations. It’s absolutely beautiful. The handle is a fabulous piece of workmanship as is the magnificent blade. Neil was slightly taken aback with it and had a wee tear in his eye. He can’t wait to getting cooking. Thank you so much.”
Joe Fleischmann – July 2020
“Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been using the knife almost daily for a few weeks now. It’s aesthetically and functionally beautiful. Met and exceeded my expectations.”
Rhodri Johnstone – July 2020
“I love cooking and spend a lot of time preparing etc and have never used a knife that’s so precise and balanced. I have bought expensive knives in the past under the illusion they would be spectacular but the products you guys make are a different class.”
Steve Groves, Chef – September 2020
“Thank you so much for my knife, I absolutely love what you did with it! I really captured everything I wanted from it. Your skills are unbelievable, all the knives you put out are a work of art whilst still being a high quality tool.”
