After an initial design consultation in person at our Wiltshire workshop or over phone, Skype or email, we will work iteratively to create their ultimate knife. First we create a 3D model, then an acrylic mock-up, then a fully functioning steel prototype. At each stage the design is tweaked and improved until everything is just so.
Only when they are completely happy with the prototype, do we create the final knife, spending 50+ of precision engineering and meticulous handcrafting to make the dream a reality.
Once you’ve placed your gift card order, we’ll send you, or your recipient, a personalised gift card. They can then get in touch with us at their leisure to arrange their design consultation.
Every bespoke Savernake knife is precision engineered from the highest quality high-tech 14c28n Sandvik Swedish steel and sharpened by hand and eye for the ultimate cutting edge.
Unless requested otherwise, your recipients bespoke knife will feature our trademark concave hollow grind, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. This geometry allows for a smoother, more graceful cut due to the reduced surface contact. It also makes our knives incredible light, strong and easy to hone.
