Chop chop all day long.
Possibly our favourite large chef’s knife, the Workhorse took shape as an amalgam of our favourite parts of lots of different knives. We wanted to create a take on the classic European blade, one that could power precisely and repeatedly through the largest collections of veg, the toughest cuts of meat and the most delicate of herbs.
Substantial and yet exceptionally light, it ended up as a great all rounder and is ideal for larger hands and experienced chefs.
With a less-pronounced rock to the belly and a distinctive heel curve and good depth of blade, the Workhorse allows a gentle rocking chop motion but is equally well suited to a more up and down chopping technique, with the depth of the blade creating good knuckle clearance.
This smart ready made version has a highly durable, contoured red Richlite handle with bright red liner – there’ll be no way this one can be accidentally ‘borrowed’ without it being missed immediately.
Order before 2pm on Tuesday 22nd December and we can have this knife engraved and posted out for next day delivery to the UK and ROI, guaranteed in time for Christmas.
As with every Savernake, the Workhorse 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.

Covid 19 Update
To ensure the safety and well being of our small team of knife makers we have implemented additional measures in our workshop to enable us to continue to make custom knives and accessories. The need for us to minimise the number of people in any one area of the workshop at any given time – plus ensuring all knives are sanitised prior to posting – means that our average lead time is currently around 4 to 6 weeks.
