As a set this eye-catching collection of four knives and matching honing steel is pretty unmissable.
Originally made as a private commission, between them, the four knives in the set are capable of pretty much anything you could throw at them kitchen-wise. From the diminutive but incredibly versatile Stout Yeoman, as capable of fiddly veg prep as picking the last choice bits of meat from a roast chicken; to the Astounding Cleaver whose weight belies its apparent size and heft – as adept at ribboning carrots as it is chopping its way through a rib of beef. In the right hands, the Brawny Chef is an incredibly dextrous beast with serious length and depth for tackling larger food prep, whilst our desert-island stalwart and Santoku-inspired signature Savernake Knife is a true all-rounder with its deep, slightly curved blade lending itself to both a smooth slicing action and more modern up down chop.
For the handles we sought out a particularly exquisitely-grained piece of Mallee Burr whose natural flaws and irregular grain lend it the most extraordinary appearance and richness of colour. Boldly contrasted by the neon green custom resin liners which are displayed to maximum effect by the contoured handles leading to the butt of the knives. Custom hollow pins were filled with a matching neon green resin which allows the light to pass through making them appear to glow.
No self-respecting knife set should be without its own matching honing steel – and this one is no exception. Using the very edge of the burr allowed us to sandwich a solid layer of neon green resin between the two layers of wood before it was hand turned and polished, creating a distinctly unique steel that rightly deserves its place alongside the matching knives.
Definitely not for shrinking violets, this is a set that means business and demands to be put through its culinary paces.
