Like a (little) extension to your hand.

Paring knives are great things, and on occasion we’ve been know to make one. However, they are very much limited to those little fiddly tasks, and so for those people who either like a small knife for everything, or a small knife on occasion, we think the Stout Yeoman’s a better bet. The blade is small enough to tackle intricate tasks, but the handle (while being one of our smaller efforts) is still very comfortable and will sit perfectly in the palm for hours and hours.

We also think that smaller knives have an unsung role to play when carving; instead of sticking your elbow up in the air like a demented violinist, determined to poke out the last bits of roast lamb, take a small knife and accomplish the task both more easily and slightly less embarrassingly.

As with every Savernake Knife, the Stout Yeoman 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.

  • 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n
  • Designed for gentle, frequent maintenance on a steel

    It was like Christmas here, today.  I opened the packages.  It was our knives.  (you know, I loved that the boxes were marked Carol / Pete.  Our names. ) The knives and honing tool are amazing.  So beautiful.  Pete immediately got out my Stout and honed it.  I feel so blessed to have such wonderful knives at hand.  And actually meeting the men who made them means so much.  They will be loved and used to make lots of people happy in the coming years.  I will leave a message about who gets them in my will so that no fighting breaks out.

    I must say after 30+ years these are the best knives I have had the pleasure to use. I’m looking forward to my new additions. I work out of Miami in the USA, but as things are at the moment with the cruise industry I’m not too sure when I will return. However I will get the maximum use from my collection. Once again many thanks.
