Working closely with our expert knifemakers and craftspeople, your loved-one will have the chance to design their own bespoke knife. They could conceive something entirely new, recreate an old favourite or combine different aspects of classic knives. The possibilities are endless.
Every Savernake bespoke knife starts with a design consultation, in person at our Wiltshire workshop, or over email, Skype or phone. During this consultation, we will discuss what purpose your knife is to be designed for, what the blade and handle profile should be, your preferred handle material and size and any other unique design elements. All of this information will be captured in a hand drawn sketch with notes highlighting any key design features.
Next we create a 3D model using our in-house CAD programme from which we produce an initial acrylic mock-up of your knife, then a fully functioning steel prototype which we send to you for testing and to see if any further tweaks to the design are needed.
Only once completely satisfied with the design do we go ahead and create the final knife, with 50+ hours of precision engineering and meticulous handcrafting going into making the dream a reality.
The final stage is to engrave the blade using our state of the art laser, whether this is a simple monogram, an elaborate logo or personal message.
Our bespoke knife gift package also includes:
- Tour of our knife making workshop
- Personalised gift certificate
- Personalised letter outlining the design process
- Beautiful brochure about their knife
- Branded Savernake keepsake gift box, in our signature black Richlite
Like every Savernake knife, your recipient’s knife will be made from the highest quality 14c28n Sandvik Swedish steel and sharpened by hand and eye for the ultimate cutting edge. It will feature our trademark concave hollow grind, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge for a smoother, more graceful cut. Our special blade geometry also makes our knives incredible light, strong and easy to hone.
