Hard-wearing brilliance

Originally made as a private commission for a professional chef, between them, the five knives in the set are capable of pretty much anything you could throw at them kitchen-wise. From the diminutive but incredibly versatile Stout Yeoman, as capable of fiddly veg prep as picking the last choice bits of meat from a roast chicken; to the Astounding Cleaver whose weight belies its apparent size and heft – as adept at ribboning carrots as it is chopping its way through a rib of beef. In the right hands, the Workhorse is an incredibly dextrous beast with serious length and depth for tackling things of substance, whilst our Useful Boner, Extreme Slicer and Carving Fork cover pretty much every aspect of cooking meat, from the very beginning to the final flourish.

For the handles we sought out an extremely durable resin-stabilised poplar burr, whose natural flaws and irregular grain lend it the most extraordinary appearance and richness of colour. Subtly contrasted by the British racing green liner and a variety of traditional and contoured handle shapes.

This is a set that means business and demands to be put through its culinary paces. Every aspect of it has been designed to be beautiful as well as functional.

Knives can be made individually or as a set, and of course if you’d like to customise any aspect of the knives please get in touch.
