Our ultimate utility knife. Perfect for everything from veg and herbs to opening packets.

Show Description

Small but mighty, this is the ultimate utility knife.

The Agile Yeoman is archetypal. Taking on just about any job that requires a sharp edge, it’s beyond useful, but it still has enough curve on the belly to let you rock the knife as you speed through your kitchen prep. It’s slight but not insubstantial, and our scrupulous attention to comfort in the compact handle design means you barely notice the work you’re doing. For some, it’ll be the largest knife they like to use. For others, the smallest. Either way, it’s essential.

Prep a quick supper and then open your mail while dinner’s on the stove – you may find you rarely put this knife down.

Precision engineered from the highest quality high-tech 14c28n Sandvik Swedish steel and sharpened by hand and eye for the ultimate cutting edge.

As with every Savernake Knife, the Agile Yeoman features our trademark concave hollow grind, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. This means it is both incredibly light, and easy to hone. It also allows for smoother cutting and slicing due to reduced metal passing through the ingredient, and less sticking, due to the reduced surface contact. Quite simply, the concave hollow grind is the business.

  • Just about any job that requires a blade
  • Prepping veg and cutting herbs
  • Slicing meat and bread rolls
  • Opening packets and trimming flower stems
  • Dimensions: 150mm blade // 275mm overall // ±90 grams
