We were obviously delighted when Tom decided to design his perfect knife through our Bespoke service. As with all our clients, this started with a conversation over the sketch book, jotting down ideas and features to build into the knife.
Tom liked our standard Savernake Knife model, but decided he'd like to increase both the length and depth of the blade. This knife comes with a Richlite knife sheath, with hidden magnetic lock-in. As well as Tom's handle choice, we've also added a few other options, all made with Corian. If you'd prefer this knife with different handle materials, pin or liner colour, please just get in touch and we'll make it happen for you. Read more about the collaboration here. Buying for someone else? Why not gift the customisation process by getting a Gift Invitation (you'll find the Tom Aikens Knife at the top of the list).
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.
