Starting life as a private commission, our Old Glory celebrates American Independence Day in star-spangled style

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 finished 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 Richlite sheath with hidden magnetic lock-in.

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.
