Strong as an ox, light as a feather
Our take on the larger end of the classic European-style chef’s knife. It’s not flashy, it hasn’t got any gimmicks – it’s just a very well-crafted, perfectly balanced cutting machine.
If someone wants to know what makes our knives so special, very often the simplest thing to do is to give them this knife to hold as while it looks like it’s going to weigh a tonne, but in fact it’s as joyous to hold and use as a scalpel. Comparisons are odious, and all that stuff, but we’d say it’s probably 50% of the weight of comparable knives in its size class. With a rigid spine, high knuckle clearance and incredible steel it keeps pulling away from the pack.
This handsome version sports a quite breathtaking English Yew handle – the first time we’ve ever used yew, let alone English yew for our knife handles – which looks simply sublime with a crisp white liner. We also include a Richlite magnetic sheath to protect the blade when not in use.
As with every Savernake, the Brawny Chef features our trademark concave blade, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. The blade’s concavity allows the knife to have both a sturdy spine and a cutting edge best measured in microns. It also removes excess weight and encumbrance from the side of the blade and is – in short – the business.
