Savernake x The Burnt Chef Project
The Burnt Chef Project and British knifemaker Savernake Knives have partnered to create a limited edition Burnt Chef Project X Savernake custom knife, with 10% of all proceeds going direct to The Burnt Chef Project’s campaign to eradicate the stigma around mental health within the hospitality industry.
The hand-made Burnt Chef knife, which draws inspiration from a Japanese Gyuto - renowned for its precision slicing capabilities - sports a 9” concave blade and striking black and white resin handle illustrative of the Burnt Chef’s brain logo. It’s a beautifully balanced, clean and refined knife designed to appeal to professional chefs and home cooks alike.
Just 80 individually numbered knives will be produced – representing the 80% of professionals within the hospitality industry who, in a recent survey by The Burnt Chef Project* reported having experienced at least one instance of poor mental health, such as anxiety or depression, as a result of their role within the trade.
Laurie Timpson, Savernake’s Founder commented:
“We hope that our collaboration with The Burnt Chef Project will help enable the conversation around mental health to reach more areas of the trade and raise awareness of the impact of mental health issues within the industry to the wider public. By purchasing a Burnt Chef knife from Savernake, industry professionals and passionate home cooks are directly supporting the Project’s ongoing work, whilst also gaining pleasure from owning one of our custom designed, limited edition knives.”
