E Pluribus Unum
Originally starting life as a private commission for an ardent customer of Tom Hixson of Smithfield and modelled along the lines of our Tom Aikens knife, we think the Old Glory blade is simply jaw dropping and far too handsome to keep hidden from view.
The bespoke star spangled resin handle is beautifully balanced in the hand, whilst the apparent heft of the concave blade belies its lightweight feel and dexterity. With full, double-sided blade engraving continuing the stars and stripes theme, the addition of the motto E pluribus unum (‘out of many, one’) honours the United States in all its glory. Only a limited number of this very special knife will be made with every knife being engraved with its model number and making date.
Each knife includes a custom engraved Richlite sheath with hidden magnetic lock-in and a matching Stars and Stripes handled honing steel.
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 Old Glory 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.
- Combines heft with scalpel like precision
- Perfectly balanced to feel weightless despite its size
- Custom Engraved Magnetic sheath included
- Matching honing steel
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.
