A slice of old fashioned Riviera glamour

Inspired by the sleek lines of the eponymous Riva speedboat and modelled along the lines of our Tom Aikens knife, our dashing Arriviste Knife Set casts a sophisticated nod to the glamour of Monte Carlo in a distinctly non-showy kind of way.

The gloriously polished, contoured mopane handle is beautifully balanced in the hand, whilst the apparent heft of the concave blade belies its lightweight feel and dexterity. Subtle walnut veneer striping echoes the polished detail of the original Riva foredeck. At the expense of a smidgen of durability we’ve hand polished the blade edge to make it razor sharp.

The perfect tender to the knife, the matching honing steel sports a hand-turned mopane and walnut veneer handle, whilst a custom magnetic black Richlite sheath protects the blade of the knife when not in use.

This handsome trio would make a truly exceptional gift for the chef with a love of nauticalia – we can engrave whatever you like on the blade to give it the final personalised flourish.

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 Arriviste 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.


  • Combines heft with scalpel like precision
  • Perfectly balanced to feel weightless despite its size
  • Custom Magnetic sheath included
  • Matching honing steel
