After time in recovery from long-term illness, lots of driving his beloved camper and making broth during ‘windswept and interesting’ nights in his caravan on the Cornish coast, Richy joined Laurie as knifemaker at Savernake Knives in 2018. His preceding career as a Royal Marine Commando saw him serve in multiple environments and roles; from the arctic circle to the desert; from Professional Driver of dignitaries to Commando and Specialist Weapons Training, supporting UK Special Forces, instructing new recruits and active duty in Afghanistan. When Richy is not in the workshop insisting on excellence with un-relenting attention to detail or still driving his camper; he spends time as a Semi-Professional Singer/Songwriter, Painter, Poet, Supporter of fellow Veterans and keen advocate of Mental Health in the UK. He now lives… somewhere…on a narrowboat.
His favourite knife is the Compact Chef.
