This knife set from David Mellor comes in a handmade Birchwood box with a sliding lid, perfect as a gift, and permanent safe storage for your knives. The set includes four of the most essential knives needed in the kitchen: a paring knife, and three different sized chef’s knives.

Designed by Corin Mellor and newly introduced after 3 years’ development, the sinuously curving handles are made in Indian rosewood, the traditional material favoured by culinary experts. These are carefully hand finished and wonderful to use.

Knife blades exploit the latest techniques in steel casting to arrive at the beautifully curved bolster. Blades are precision ground and glazes to give a specially bright finish. Drawing on the David Mellor expertise in metalwork these are amongst the world’s finest knives.
