THE SUN NEVER SETS ON BRI­TISH STEEL

Canada’s 100 Best - - Stuff We Love -

For the culi­nary type who fan­cies Mor­gan mo­tor­cars, AGA cook­ers and other uniquely Bri­tish con­tem­po­rary ex­pres­sions of the crafts­man­ship of yore, your next knife pur­chase is a no-brainer. Sav­er­nake Knives is a three-year old, two-man op­er­a­tion based in a for­mer calv­ing shed in the Sav­er­nake For­est in Wilt­shire, U.K. There, work­ing from sketches fi­nessed through 3D com­puter imag­ing, they cre­ate knives of unusual beauty, cast by hand from what is widely rated the world’s finest knife-mak­ing steel (Sand­vik 14c28n, since you asked). The knives are avail­able ex­clu­sively on­line. Nu­mer­ous han­dle op­tions—metal fin­ish, var­i­ous types of wood or syn­thetic—are avail­able across the reg­u­lar line. Or, you can one-up ev­ery­one you know and go com­pletely be­spoke, start­ing with your own sketch, then fine-tun­ing the con­cept af­ter test-driv­ing a Sav­er­nake-cre­ated pro­to­type, and fi­nally tak­ing de­liv­ery of your own idea of per­fec­tion.
