An absolutely stunning piece of craftsmanship arrived today! The weight and balance is perfect, the finish is unlikely anything I have come across before. All the way through the process I have been kept informed by Phil and been given options to make this knife my own, I would highly recommend Savernake Knives 11/10

A perfectly scaled down vegetable knife for those who prefer a Japanese Santuko aesthetic to that of the more traditional utility knife.

Made for veg, while serving effortlessly as a utility blade, the Nimble Chopper is a companion for those who prefer a smaller, lighter knife. Like its larger sister the Good Chopper, the design of the blade means you can cut with a rocking action as well as a straight up and down chop. Reminding you, visually, of both a Cleaver and a Santoku, it’s as happy dealing with a mountain of potatoes as it is chiffonading your spinach.

Small in stature but not in scope, this knife will mince, chop and slice with deft precision.

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 Nimble 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.

  • Every veg prep task you can imagine
  • Fine chopping herbs
  • Cutting with agility and accuracy
  • Those who want a smaller lighter knife
  • Those who appreciate the influence of the Japanese tradition
  • Dimensions: 125mm blade // 250mm overall // ±90 grams
