The balanced legend

The Classic is – we believe – an exemplary take on a mid-sized European chef’s knife; comfortable, balanced and precise with a fantastic rocking action along the length of the blade. It is just as perfectly at home preparing a rack of lamb as it is a stack of turnips, and will find a home with new and experiences cooks alike.

As with many of our knives, what sets this blade apart is its lightness and the feeling of dexterity you have when wielding it. For very precise work across a wide range of tasks, from topping radishes with its heel and scouring loaves with its tip, it has almost no competition – and if you really want precision then we highly recommend the contoured handle.

As with every Savernake, the Classic 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.

Highlights

  • "Outstanding" sharpness and edge durability
  • 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n
  • Designed for gentle, frequent maintenance on a steel

Covid 19 Update

To ensure the safety and well being of our small team of knife makers we have implemented additional measures in our workshop to enable us to continue to make custom knives and accessories. The need for us to minimise the number of people in any one area of the workshop at any given time – plus ensuring all knives are sanitised prior to posting – means that our average lead time is currently around 4 to 6 weeks.

  • Every Savernake product is made to order. The quest for perfection takes time, so in normal circumstances please allow 3-4 weeks for your order to arrive (see below for Gift Boxes, Cards & Panic Department).
  • Need it sooner? Please get in touch and we’ll always do our best to help.
  • Your order will be delivered by Royal Mail Special Delivery in its specially-designed tubular Savernake packaging and guidance on knife care.
  • Gift Boxes, Cards & Ready Made items will be posted as soon as possible upon ordering (same working day if order is placed before 2pm)
