Quercus Knife Set

Leave no task unaccounted for with a set that covers all the bases, from meat, veg and herb prep, to butchery, to ceremoniously carving a roast. This ultimate collection of kitchen knives combines classics with specialists, multi-taskers with experts in their field, to create a powerful set that will take your cooking to new levels. In your set you will find the Savernake Knife, the ultimate master blade, the Brawny Chef, a generously proportioned and highly versatile classic chef's knife, and the Stout Yeoman, a compact paring knife that’s perfect for precision work. In addition we have included the Big Butcher, the highly versatile butchery blade we designed for Jamie Oliver, the Extreme Slicer, a fantastic carving knife and its sister tool, the carving fork, for precision cutting. All three are must-haves for meat lovers. The set also includes a custom-made leather knife wallet, crafted by master saddlers E.J. Wickes, est. 1905. Quercus is the Latin name for the mighty Oak tree, and we are proud to make all our knives by hand in the Savernake Forest, where some of Europe’s oldest Oaks have their roots. Bought separately, the cost of these knives is £1,750. As ever, if you’d like to create your own custom set, please get in touch. Anything is possible.

Your liner sits between the tang of your knife blade and the handle material, enabling a strong join and creating a beautiful crisp line along the handle spine. These are the recommended liner options for your handle. Please get in touch if you have a special request.

Clear selection

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 knives in the Quercus Set feature 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 Savernake knife and accessory is made to order. The quest for perfection takes time, so please allow 4-6 weeks for your order to arrive. Need it sooner? Please get in touch and we’ll always do our best to help. Your order will be delivered by Royal Mail Special Delivery in its specially-designed tubular Savernake packaging, complete with guidance on knife care.
