Give the World’s Best Present

The ideal Christmas present should be something to be treasured, prompting happy memories of both the occasion and the gift giver every time it’s used.

Finding such a gift is often easier said than done however, especially when buying for someone who seemingly has everything they need and you’re rightly reluctant to buy something just for the sake of it.

Give the gift of infinite customisation

We’ve spent the past five years perfecting our Gift Box to be what we believe to be quite possibly the best present money can buy.

A Savernake Gift Box gives your loved one the opportunity to design their very own perfect knife from our extensive range of blades. Our online knife configurator makes it fun and easy for them to choose from 44,380 possible options, whilst complimentary blade engraving ensures their finished knife will be absolutely unique to them.

We then start work on making their knife using a combination of traditional handcrafting techniques and innovative aerospace precision equipment, with every knife taking over 50 hours to craft.

The finished result is a knife unique to them, guaranteed for life and independently tested to be in the top 2.5% of knives in the world. Our knives are designed to bring joy every time they’re used.

The handsome black Richlite gift box is in itself a small feat of engineering, opening to reveal a pair of chopping boards – the ideal cutting surface for their new knife.

Choose from various values to gift from £100 to £1,000 and we’ll send your Gift Box for next day delivery at no additional charge*, making it an ideal last minute present.

*applies to Gift Boxes ordered before 3pm, Monday to Friday and for UK delivery only. Delivery times for international orders may vary.

Last Minute Gift ideas

Whether you’re looking for a Christmas present for a passionate scratch cook, professional chef, cocktail connoisseur or even an occasional carver of the humble roast – we have gift ideas to suit.

Short on time or unsure which knife to choose?

Why not give them the ultimate present and choose a Gift Box option which allows them to design their own knife and which we honestly believe to be the The World’s Best Present*.

Our gift box not only includes a hand addressed gift card to the value you’d like to gift, but comes presented in a custom Richlite gift box which opens to reveal two superbly practical chopping boards – the perfect cutting surface on which to use their new custom knife.

Or choose a simple gift card to whatever value you like and we’ll hand address it and have it posted out for next day delivery.

Give them the chance to design their own knife – from scratch

A Bespoke Knife Gift is the ideal present for the professional chef or ambitious amateur cook – or anyone passionate about design. Working with our expert knife makers, they’ll be able to design their own knife completely from scratch, before we make an acrylic mockup of their blade to ensure the dimensions and proportions match their expectations. We then go on to make a fully functional steel prototype knife for them to test to make sure every aspect is perfect. Only then do we proceed to make their finished knife to their exact specification and using whichever handle materials they prefer. The finished knife is designed completely for them and will fit them like a glove.

*We’ve spent the last five years perfecting our gift experience to be one of the best we think money can buy. Ask any of our lucky gift box recipients what they think if you need any additional convincing!

“Can I express my sincere admiration for the quality of the knife and for the truly exceptional packaging. How clever to package the knife in a what can only described as a knife block. I suppose the greatest compliment is that the knife is an absolute pleasure to handle, its balance and weighting exemplary, its blade razor sharp and it accurately reflects what I had in mind.”

– Zoltan Sipos, Savernake Knife Owner, May 2020


Personalised engraving is included on all knives


With proper care, our knives are guaranteed for a lifetime of use
