An incredibly light main-line chef's knife

The first version of this knife was commissioned for one of the Scotland’s leading private chefs, as his go-to-do-everything blade. We’ve improved the design over the years as we got better at making our blades, but the underlying design remains the same.

As a professional chef’s main blade, this beauty has a blade big enough for meat and veg, but precise enough for herbs and garnishes, as well as impromptu carving.

Incredibly light for its class, the knife is able to carry off a significant cutting edge without needing a large handle. If you like a slightly larger chef’s knife, but don’t want to get bogged down wielding a huge great lump, then this is the one for you.

As with every Savernake, the Dextrous Knife 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
  • All purpose

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.

    Many thanks for the safe delivery of our knife, it looks absolutely beautiful and will make a great gift for our friend.   Feeling very jealousy and will have to treat myself. I can’t believe how light the knife is.
