Simplicity belying ferocious adaptability

When given this knife to use, people go one of two ways – they either finely dice the most finely dice-able thing they can lay their hands on, or they cleanly and efficiently take apart a chicken carcass for stock. That it can do both is a testament to the steel made by Sandvik, that it feels comfortable doing both arises from us having refined this knife through many variations to where it is today.

As with all our knives, it’s lighter than it looks, but packs a punch. If you think you need some cleaving in your life, but are not entirely convinced by its larger brethren, then give the Mini Cleaver a go. We can (almost) guarantee you’ll soon be finding excuses to use it.

As with every Savernake Knife, the Mini Cleaver 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.


  • "Outstanding" sharpness and edge durability
  • 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n
  • Designed for a honing steel
  • Hard labour, soft work
  • Dual-position handle

    I just wanted to let you know that I got the knife yesterday afternoon and thank you for the effort, it looks and feels fantastics. So much so, I changed our shopping list for more recipes with more knife work just to use it!
