“I recently used my daughter-in-law’s kitchen knife while on holiday in the UK. Really loved it, so ordered my own when I got back to Australia. It arrived very quickly, well packed and protected.
It is a joy to use, sits well and balanced in your hand, and so beautifully sharp. Love it!!!”

“Another great Signature knife in my collection. Love using this one - it is super sharp (as they all are), and so very easy to use; hardly any pressure required making preparing meals a pleasure. Quality as always is unbeatable.

Perfect gift for a new kitchen owner

“Last year I returned to work after bringing up a family and for the first time was able to spend my money on beautiful things. I bought a small set of Robert Welch knives which are not only beautiful to look at but perfectly balanced and a pleasure to use. I bought one for my sister as a Christmas present as she has just finished a kitchen refurb that went over budget and didn’t include new knives. I will be buying more to increase both our sets in the New Year.”
