One of our most popular knives, the Classic Chef is a great all-rounder and a must-have for home cooks and professional chefs

This special edition of our all-round cooks' favourite the Classic Chef features a custom handle made from layers of English Walnut and G.F Smith paper, with contrasting orange liner and striking spine work. It is presented in a custom-made suede knife wrap made for us by master saddlers E.J. Wicks and would make an unforgettable gift for someone special.

As with all Savernake knives, we can engrave whatever you'd like on the blade for no additional charge.

Use the Classic Chef for everything from finely chopping herbs to veg prep to boning a chicken.

Modeled on the classic French design, it boasts a deep, long blade, with tapered end. The belly has a gentle curve, supporting the rocking chop motion favoured by classically trained chefs. The depth of the blade creates extra clearance at the throat of the knife, making it an ideal choice if you have larger hands.

Light, durable and incredibly sharp, it will see you through even the trickiest dinner party prep and the most arduous of kitchen shifts.

No cook’s kit is complete without one.

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 Classic Chef 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.
