This stunning set combines three classic knives to create an unstoppable kitchen team.
Our special edition Aquila knife set comprises three of our most useful blades and would make a stunning gift for a passionate foodie or professional chef.
It features the Savernake, our signature desert-island knife that’s an ideal master blade, the Nimble Chopper, our smaller-sized Japanese-influenced knife that’s part cleaver part Santuko and great for veg and herb prep, and the Raven's Claw for outrageously smooth, thin slicing using a perfect rocking chop.
Whether you are prepping veg and fruit, slicing meat or fish, or doing fiddly tasks like peeling garlic, this striking custom-designed set has you covered.
All of our sets are usually named after trees native to the UK but the handles on this set so closely resemble feathers that we decided to name it in honour of the largest and most stunning of British raptors, the Latin for Golden Eagle.
This striking set features custom handles made from scales of Burr Walnut veneer layered between stabilised sheets of white G.F Smith paper, with each knife handle bearing its own characteristic and appearance. We can recreate the set with whatever wood and paper colour you prefer, meaning each set will be completely unique.
As ever, if you’d like to create your own custom set, please get in touch. Anything is possible.
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 knives in the Aquila Set feature 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.
