“A superb group of people and a great product…they went out of their way to be helpful in the whole process of purchasing the knife. And what a knife it is! Thanks to all for the great service and product. Buy your knives from Savernake Knives!”

After several professional chefs came to us asking for a chef’s knife with a longer, deeper blade, we created the Brawny Chef.

Substantial and yet exceptionally light, it is a great all rounder designed to see you through multiple aspects of kitchen service.

Our classic chef’s knife in super size, Brawny is ideal for larger hands and experienced chefs.

Modeled on the classic French design, it boasts an extra deep, extra long blade, with tapered end. The belly has a gentle curve, supporting the classic rocking chop motion. Meanwhile the depth of the blade creates knuckle clearance. This plus our handle design makes it perfect for putting in the hours at the chopping board.

Use it for everything from chiffonading herbs, to slicing veggies, to gutting and scaling fish.

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 Brawny Chef features 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.
