Tom Aikens X Savernake Knives

Tom Aikens is a Michelin-starred chef and owner of various restaurants including Tom’s Kitchen in Chelsea, London.

“My Savernake knife is most definitely one of the closest fitting knives I have had. It’s more than just bespoke, it’s made to measure to the millimetre. I have designed a knife exactly how I wanted, which is a first. I cannot recommend them highly enough”

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.

For the handle, Tom chose Corian, a new material we have been experimenting with recently. It is typically used to create kitchen work surfaces and comes in many different colours and patterns. Tom chose a very classy white marble effect contrasted with a black liner and black epoxy pins. The handle is also sculpted with an ergonomic palm-swell.

Tom’s knife ended up somewhere between a Japanese-inspired all-rounder and a cleaver, and we absolutely love it. Despite it’s rather imposing size, our signature hollow grind means it is by no means heavy, especially when compared to other knives of similar proportions.

Tom’s knife is now available to own yourself, with a made-to-measure Richlite lock-in magnetic sheath included.
