Designed in consultation with professional chefs this 20cm Cook’s knife, from the multi-award winning Signature range, features a fully forged German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel blade with a full tang for superior strength and balance. The Japanese-style blade edge is hand applied at a 15° angle. The handle is made from tactile DuPont™ and is ergonomically shaped for comfort and to minimise fatigue. The RW insignia is a permanent steel detail of the handle.

Signature Cook's Knife 20cm

“This knife is the perfect experience for me, someone who is not high-skilled in cooking. It is extremely sharp, very beautifully designed, and very well balanced.
For the past month since purchasing last August, this knife has been used to prepare all meals.
I also considered Robert Welch's knife with knives from Wusthof, WMF, and Henkel, Germany.
And after putting together a lot of opinions, I decided to buy this knife. As a result, my judgment was right.
This knife has very good cutting power and light weight, so the wrist feels less pressure.
The length of 20cm also makes it possible to trim almost all kinds of food ingredients.
I highly recommend this knife to those who are concerned about buying it.”

Wonderful knives

“Saw these knives on our visit to Chipping Campden. Wonderful knives, comfortable balanced feel in the hand. Couldn’t believe knives of this quality could be this affordable. I have purchased 7 different knives to replace all of my German made knives.”
