The enthusiasts' all rounder

We’ve loved this eponymous Nakiri since the moment we made it, and to this day it’s generally at the front of the pack when we’re getting someone to try our knives for the first time. It encompasses all we believe about weight, precision, balance and fun.

Herbs, meat and vegetables all fall by the wayside when it arrives on the scene, and has long been our all-rounder of choice.

We made this knife for ourselves, and because we’ve not been beaten about the head with a copy of Larousse by a fascist classicist, we chop and slice like the enthusiastic amateurs we are. The Savernake Knife has plenty of room for knuckle guidance all the way down the blade, and will tackle everything from gnarly clumps of beet to the finest bits of dill.

As with every Savernake, our namesake features our trademark concave blade, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. The blade’s concavity allows the knife to have both a sturdy spine and a cutting edge best measured in microns. It also removes excess weight and encumbrance from the side of the blade and is – in short – the business.

Highlights

  • "Outstanding" sharpness and edge durability
  • 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n
  • Designed for gentle, frequent maintenance on a steel
  • Chopping, Slicing, Dicing

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.

  • Every Savernake product is made to order. The quest for perfection takes time, so in normal circumstances please allow 3-4 weeks for your order to arrive (see below for Gift Boxes, Cards & Panic Department).
  • 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 and guidance on knife care.
  • Gift Boxes, Cards & Ready Made items will be posted as soon as possible upon ordering (same working day if order is placed before 2pm)

    Just a quick note to say thank you for getting the knife over to me so promptly last week. I’m really please with it, it’s an absolute pleasure to use. Although it’s actually caused a few kitchen arguments already as both my partner and I argue over who’s turn it is to do the chopping….makes was can be a chore into something to look forward too.

  2. Jonathan Kinrade

    Just dropping you a quick note to let you know the knife arrived last week and I absolutely love it. It’s already getting a good amount of use!

  3. Andrew Cartwright

    Just received my second knife, the savernake signature knife. I must say these knifes are the best I have had in 35 years of chefing…

  4. Mark Hodgson

    It arrived today – wow, it’s amazing…quality, finish and weight are fantastic. Once again, thank you for your help – as you said spectacular.

  5. Julia Sinclair

    Just to say that Malcolm is over the moon with his new knife, and loves it…..no cut fingers yet!

  6. Peter Edwards

    My beautiful new knife has just arrived and it truly is absolutely stunning – thank you so, so much. I think it’s made even more special with the knowledge that each and every time I nick my finger with it,  as I inevitably will, I’ll picture in my minds eye, you lot, wincing and grinning in equal measures!

    Today was birthday-day, and Karen absolutely loved her present. The knife is absolutely stunning! Thank you — and thank you to all the team!

    I received my knife last weekend. Firstly, love the engraving, my logo looks fabulous! The overall appearance of the knife is beautiful. When I first tried it I’ll admit that I didn’t feel that it was a step up in how sharp it was, then my partner pointed out that all my kitchen knives are like, “F$%king razor blades” so maybe I was being unfair. I did however use it in anger on Sunday and have pretty much deferred to using it for everything now. Look I’m not a pro chef but I love using equipment that just works and this knife is so lovely. Balance and manoeuvrability are just sublime, I own Japanese and European knives and nothing I have feels like the Savernake, it’s hard to explain. I really did wonder if it would be £350 good and it has totally surpassed my expectations. I love it. Once lockdown is over I’d love to head over your way and get two or three fully custom knives done. I have some ideas based on my favourite knives. For now though, thanks for a stunning knife, I do truly love it.
