An armada of blades
This stunning set combines three classic knives to create an indispensable kitchen armoury
Our special edition Ebenum knife set comprises three of our bestselling blades, ideal for any self-respecting cook, whether bought for yourself or as a gift for someone special.
It features the Savernake, our signature desert-island knife that’s an ideal master blade, our Compact Chef which is a pleasingly small all round knife with enough knuckle clearance and rock on the blade to make it a good choice for anyone who enjoys using a smaller knife; and our perfectly proportioned Stout Yeoman, the ultimate utility blade, as adept at fiddly little prep tasks as it is winkling the last bits of choice meat from a carcass.
Whether you are prepping veg and fruit, slicing meat or fish, or doing fiddly tasks like peeling garlic prising the oysters from your roast chicken, this striking custom-designed set has you covered.
All of our sets are usually named after trees native to the UK but with it’s elegant yet subtly striking G . F Smith paper and ebony veneer handle, with contrasting eau de nil paper liner there was only one natural choice for this set, which takes its name from the scientific name for ebony (Diospyros Ebenum).
Nickel silver pins and beautifully contoured handles add the final finishing touch to this design classic. The blades can be engraved with whatever personal message you choose.
As ever, if you’d like to create your own custom set, please get in touch. Anything is possible.
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 knives in the Ebenum Set feature our trademark concave hollow grind, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. This means the each blade 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.

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.
