It starts with the materials we use for our blades

Beginning with the steel chosen for our blades. We almost exclusively use Sandvik 14c28n, although on occasion we use RWL 34 powdered metallurgical steel and other exotics. For prototypes we use 420C, the steel used by most other knife manufacturers for their final product.

We chose Swedish Sandvik for a variety of reasons – not only is it a stainless steel with excellent strength properties, Sweden also has stated ambitions to remain at the forefront of technological and innovative development in a transformation to a sustainable society.

In tests by CATRA (the Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association) Savernake blades scored in the top 2.5% of knives tested and were rated ‘Excellent’ for both initial sharpness and durability.

Knives uniquely designed for you

Whether you favour a classic wooden handle, prefer something more bold or colourful like our G. F Smith paper or striped woods, or decide to commission your own design, one thing is practically guaranteed and that is that your finished knife will almost certainly be unique to you.

With 44,380 possible variations available – and that’s before you even start to consider our tailored or bespoke knife making service – plus complimentary blade engraving as standard on all our knives, the chance of anyone else owning the same knife as you is remote, to say the least.

“I now have two Savernake knives. I thought I should let you know that I love them. They sing when honing them. No other knife has this quality. I have a fair collection, but none sound as beautiful as well as being the best to use. They bring me delight everyday.”

– Ian Prosser, Savernake Customer – April 2020

A Lifetime of Creativity

Your Savernake knife will respond beautifully to the frequent, gentle touches of a honing steel. Properly cared for, it will need sharpening very infrequently – which, of course, we can do for you. Treat your Savernake knife well and it will last a lifetime and beyond.
