Design Notes

Designed in consultation with professional chefs, the award winning Signature 18cm/7.5" cook's knife is an all-purpose kitchen knife with a curved blade for chopping and rocking cutting actions. 

Cook’s knives are a multi-purpose kitchen tool, and a great starter knife if you are only intending to buy one. Their curved blades allow for a two step chop and rock action, ideal for meat (raw or cooked) and hard vegetables as well as herbs, nuts and salads and for crushing garlic into a paste. 

The Japanese-style blade edge is at a 15° angle and the knife has an ergonomically shaped handle for comfort, balance and to minimise fatigue in use. 

Also available: cook's knife 12cm, cook's knife 14cm, cook's knife 16cm, cook's knife 20cm, cook's knife 25cm 

Choosing the right kitchen knife, the best knife for the task at hand, makes preparing a meal easier. Selecting the perfect knife for slicing, dicing or chopping allows you to work with accuracy and cut consistently, which helps food to cook more evenly. The specially hardened, high-quality, German stainless steel used for our Signature knives is durable, easy to clean and maintain.

Technical Information

The 18cm cook's knife has a fully forged German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel blade with a full tang for superior strength. 

German stainless steel, hardened to Rockwell 56, is used in the manufacture of all Robert Welch kitchen knives. The hardened German steel allows for easy home maintenance and a superior sharpness that lasts. 

The handle is made from tactile DuPont™ POM and features the RW insignia, a permanent steel detail.

Design Story: Signature Knives (2005-2007)

Design Story: Signature Knives (2005-2007)

Design Director, Paul deBretton Gordon was first tasked with this project when he joined Robert Welch. He reflects "The design process for the Signature knife range was rooted in questioning all aspects of functionality, durability, methods of manufacture and ease of use." He worked in collaboration with Rupert Welch to perfect the knives using the experience of professional chefs. The knife range was rigorously tested over three years. Signature knives are now much loved by both professional and amateur chefs alike.
