This knife was originally designed and made with Jodie Kidd, who loved our Astounding Cleaver but wanted to add a little more curve to the cutting edge to allow for more of a rocking motion. This pre-made model features one of our favourite handle materials: G . F Smith paper in Jodie Kidd's personally selected colour way. Pre-made and ready to ship. We’ll engrave it with whatever you want and post it within 1 working day. Amazing last minute gift sorted! Made & ready to ship same day (if ordered before 2pm).

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 Wide Chopper 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.

  • A surprisingly wide range of kitchen jobs
  • Prepping veg and herbs
  • An alternative to the Western chef’s knife
  • Dimensions: 175mm blade // 300mm overall // ±180 grams
