Telling the story of craftsmanship and design using traditional techniques and employing 21st century innovations.
Our collaboration with extraordinary bespoke furniture maker Lanserring represents the culmination of a journey of exploration and the celebration of a shared passion for design and craftsmanship.
Lanserring designs and manufactures custom-made kitchens, furniture and lifestyle products for discerning clients around the world. They offer a truly bespoke concept-to-completion service – each commission is an opportunity to create something new; a journey, tailored to reflect the tastes and lifestyle of their clients.
When Lanserring first approached us about working together we didn’t need to be asked twice. We both employ the same traditional hand crafting techniques alongside innovative precision engineering to produce truly made to order products that fit our customers’ brief exactly. This was an opportunity for us to work together to design something very special indeed that would also allow us to explore new making techniques and materials.
The resulting knives embody the true spirit of Lanserring, drawing inspiration from the location of its workshop in Austria, surrounded by woodland and nestled in the shadow of the Riegersburg Castle.
Every element of the design reflects Lanserring’s obsession with detail. From the brass double dovetail – a traditional cabinet making motif used to joint two dissimilar timber elements together; to the choice of woods used in the handle; to the highly innovative and durable champagne gold PVD coating on the blade which seamlessly blends the contrasting materials together.
The laser engraved contour lines on the blades reference the exact location of Lanserring’s location and are a subtle acknowledgement of the merging of past, present and future.
“In Savernake Knives we found kindred spirit. A company who also values craft, creativity, precision and excellence.
The styling of the knife was a fusion of two concepts: the first referencing Japanese knife making for the faceted handle and the second, a nod to tradition cabinet making techniques.
The result is a technically complex piece that feels rare and beautiful.”– Alex Beaugeard, Director of Design, Lanserring
