Slightly smaller than your average chef’s knife, but more substantial than a paring knife, the Compact Chef is scaled down, slender and perfectly formed.
It’s the smallest of our three chef’s knives, making it the obvious choice for those who like the feel of a larger knife but prefer a more controllable blade. Modeled on the classic French design, the blade tapers to the tip, and is still deep enough to provide plenty of knuckle clearance. The belly has a gentle curve, supporting the rocking chop motion familiar to classically trained chefs. It’s perfect for intense bursts of precision cutting.
The Compact Chef will mince and slice as easily as it will peel and chop. We love it for its lightness, agility and it’s versatility.
- The whole range of kitchen tasks
- Peeling and chopping fruit and veg
- Meat and fish prep
- Those who want a compact all-rounder
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 Compact 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: 280mm blade // 155mm overall // ±100 grams
