British spalted horse chestnut is one of the most beautiful handle materials in the Savernake collection. By soaking the handles for several days in a special blend of oils, we’ve come up with a way of showing off the beauty of this wood while still making a durable and comfortable handle. We select only the pieces of wood that have the most interesting spalting, and finding this right amount isn’t easy. We’ve currently got our hands on some lovely bits, but they won’t be around for ever.
The five knives in the set are capable of pretty much anything you could throw at them kitchen-wise. Knives can be made individually or as a set, and of course if you’d like to customise any aspect of the knives please get in touch.
The Workhorse is an incredibly dextrous beast with serious length and depth for tackling things of substance. From the diminutive but incredibly versatile Agile Yeoman, as capable of fiddly veg prep as picking the last choice bits of meat from a roast chicken; to the Savernake, our signature master of chopping, slicing and dicing. In the right hands, our Long Filleter and Chef’s Carver are exemplary when tackling fish and large roasts respectively.
