Perfect gift

“Really lovely gift for someone who loves to cook and has a special birthday coming up! The recipient's face lit up on opening it and he got it out straight away to give it a go. Gorgeous, comfortable handle and lightweight to use. I suspect he (and I) will be back for more RW knives!”

Completes my set

“This knife now completes my set of six excellent Robert Welch knives. I wouldn’t be without them! This one and the other 5 are excellent in every way - the design, the balance, the smooth sharpness and comfort of the handles. I wouldn’t buy any other brand. I’ve had some of my other RW knives several years and sharpen them regularly (with the RW recommended sharpener). They’re all as good as the day I bought them. I’ve also just purchased the RW Book knife block and it’s not only a very efficient knife store, it looks such a beautiful item in my kitchen I can’t stop touching it! I’d buy everything in your brochure if I could!”

“A lovely lightweight knife that handles anything I've thrown at it so far. Since having this knife I don't use any of the similar knives I own, as the feel and easy work of this blade is perfect.”

So many great experiences at once

“I purchased this knife as a present for friend who is not a professional, but enjoys cooking a lot. She was amazed as well as me. Thank you Robert Welch.
This knife is perfectly suitable even for a smaller hand - not too heavy and perfectly shaped for all kind of cutting, chopping etc. Perfectly sharp and ready to use.

Lovely knife

“I bought this knife after I went to a cookery experience where we used Robert Welch knives, and this one in particular.

The order process was easy, RW were as cheap as anyone I could find and it arrived in good time and well-packaged.

I used it for the first time last night - some slicing and dicing and herb chopping. Very sharp, nice and weighty in the hand, a good design for rocking/sliding.”
