Custom Knife Engraving
Knife engraving is the perfect way to create a personalised gift or your own unique knife. All engraving undertaken by Savernake Knives is completed inhouse, by our own engraver. Engraving, teamed with the craftmanship of your own Savernake custom knife, makes for a very special blade that will last a lifetime if properly cared for.
Engraving a knife design process
You can add whatever engraving you would like to your knife, and we can do most designs at no extra charge. Our complimentary service includes:
- Using a typeface of your choice beyond the options available in our knife configurator.
- Including an image, provided that it is black and white (no shades of grey) and can be supplied to us in at least 1000 x 1000 pixels, and then preferably in a vector format (.AI, .pdf, .SVG) or failing that a high-quality .jpeg or .png.
- This image should also be able to fit on the blade in its entirety when positioned by eye.
We strongly suggest that if you are looking at a full-blade design, you consider a silvered (rather than black) finish as our engraver has to be forceful. A full blade engraving in black will detract from the smoothness of the blade, and therefore can hamper its cutting action.
Can Savernake create a bespoke design for an engraved knife?
If you would like us to design your engraving from scratch, we charge £150 per design as there’s a lot of very intricate work involved. This is also a helpful service if you want a custom engraved knife but cannot meet the image criteria listed in the bullet points above.
If the bespoke design is repeatable across several knives (in that all we need to do is re-position it slightly to fit the blade) then you would need only pay this cost once for a set of knives. We charge per design, not per blade.
However, if you’re contemplating a full-blade, knife-specific design then we would need to levy the charge for each individual knife in a set.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team today and discuss how we can engrave a Savernake knife to your specification.
