A knife born from our collaboration with Michelin-starred Chef Tom Aikens

Named after the most famous oak tree in the Savernake Forest (The Big Belly Oak), the handle is made from pippy oak burr stabilised with a red resin to create a subtle red hue in all the gaps in the wood.

The Tom Aikens knife is an adaptation of our signature Savernake Knife. This Nakiri style knife, has a longer and deeper blade than the original. The larger blade makes lighter work of chopping through vegetables or all sizes. The Blade is curved which allows smooth rocking, chopping and cutting in both directions. With the added length and depth, comes additional weight which gives you more power without having to do more work. This knife is a real joy to use in everyday cooking.

As with every Savernake Knife, the Tom Aikens Knife 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. We use 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n Stainless steel which gives our knives the perfect level of sharpness and durability rated in the top 2.5% in the world. The blade is Full Tang to give the knife optimum strength and balance.
