Producer Spotlight: British Knives from Savernake

Nestled in the picturesque county of Wiltshire, England, Savernake (Sav-er-nak) is dedicated to the craft of knife-making. Renowned for creating bespoke knives for culinary luminaries such as Tom Aikens, Jasmine Hemsley, and Matt Worswick, Savernake Knives also caters to the needs of passionate home cooks and those seeking unforgettable gifts for the hard-to-buy-for loved ones. Each knife is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality, functionality, and striking design.

At Savernake Knives, the primary focus is on producing the best blades possible. The intricate balance of geometry, comfort, sharpness, weight, and precision is carefully engineered to ensure that each knife is not only a beautifully crafted tool but also a work of art. This dedication is evident in their knives' performance, with Savernake blades scoring in the top 2.5% in tests conducted by the Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), earning an 'Outstanding' rating for initial sharpness and durability.

A key feature of Savernake Knives is their innovative concave blade profile, which results in knives that weigh significantly less, cut better, and maintain their sharpness for longer periods. This unique design, combined with the use of Sandvik’s 14c28n steel, ensures a hardness of 60 on the Rockwell C Scale, offering exceptional strength and durability. The result is a knife that is not only efficient but also a delight to use.

Ease of maintenance is another hallmark of Savernake Knives. Regular honing with a simple steel keeps the blade in prime condition, requiring sharpening only once or twice a year. They also offer complimentary servicing and sharpening for the first three years, along with a lifetime guarantee against blade or handle defects. And if mishaps occur, such as an accidental trip through the dishwasher, their handle repair service will restore the knife to its original glory.
