The Kitchen Knife Range: 100% British

What makes the perfect knife? It’s a question we have grappled with since our inception. In fact, it’s what drives us forward – forever testing, tweaking and honing new designs, materials and methods in search of this elusive goal. Although we continue to perfect our craft we have come to the realisation that there isn’t the perfect knife, only your perfect knife. And so we have worked with every single one of our customers to give them their version of perfection, combining subjective form and objective function to meet their needs.  

Through this journey with our customers we have reiterated the key elements of knife making: craft, geometry, weight, balance, excellent materials, passion and precision. These are our core tenets, the very essence of who we are.  With these guiding principles, we set about creating a new range of knives for those who seek technical excellence without the time, effort and cost required to make a custom knife.  

British Born & Bred

We wanted The Kitchen Knife range to reflect our British engineering and industrial heritage that we so proudly draw upon and so we set about ensuring that we sourced, shaped and ground British Steel.  

The steel is Sheffield’s Silver Fox 100, hardened and tempered to our exact specifications to achieve a Rockwell hardness rating of 60C – which we consider to be the optimum (and hard-to-achieve) balance of toughness and sharpness for a knife blade.  The blades are refined and finished by ourselves in Wiltshire, before everything is put together by hand, shaped, sharpened and despatched.

The Range

The full range consists of 10 knives with 27 different handle colour combinations. The knives are closely modeled on some of our custom blade shapes and we have chosen a range that covers every knife based culinary task. We have included both European and Japanese style blades of all sizes in order to cater for all cutting and chopping techniques. For carving and slicing based tasks the PC26 Carver is equally adept at filleting beef as it is slicing up a lovely crusty loaf of sourdough and will make light work of carving a succulent leg of lamb. We’ve also included the GT11, aka the barman’s best friend for slicing up lemons and limes. Want to find out more about Savernake Knives? Visit our frequently asked questions.
