THE SUN NEVER SETS ON BRITISH STEEL
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.
