Classic Chef

One of our most popular knives, the Classic Chef is a great all-rounder and a must-have for home cooks and professional chefs.Based on the timeless French design, it boasts a deep and long blade, with tapered end. This depth means extra clearance at the throat of the knife, making it an ideal choice if you have larger hands. Meanwhile the belly has a gentle curve, supporting the rocking chop motion favoured by classically trained chefs. These features, plus the length and pointed tip mean it can be used for everything from finely chopping herbs to veg prep to boning a chicken. Light, comfortable, durable and incredibly sharp, it designed to stay comfortable and enjoyable to use, for even the trickiest dinner party prep and even the longest kitchen shifts.No cook’s kit is complete without one.

Details

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 Classic 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.Dimensions: 175mm blade // 295mm overall // ±115 grams
