An absolutely stunning piece of craftsmanship arrived today! The weight and balance is perfect, the finish is unlikely anything I have come across before. All the way through the process I have been kept informed by Phil and been given options to make this knife my own, I would highly recommend Savernake Knives 11/10

This starter set combines three classic knives to create an unstoppable kitchen team.

It features the Classic Ultra, our large traditional chef’s knife that’s an ideal master blade, the Good Chopper, our medium-sized Japanese-influenced knife that’s part cleaver part Santuko and great for veg and herb prep, and the Stout Yeoman, a compact paring knife that’s perfect for precision work.

Whether you are prepping veg and fruit, slicing meat or fish, or doing fiddly tasks like peeling garlic, this starter set has you covered.

All of our sets are named after trees native to the UK. The Betula set is named after the Latin for the Downy Birch tree.

Bought separately, the cost of these knives is £835. 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 Betula 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.
