Another set from Richardson Sheffield, the British knife specialist company that has been creating exceptional kitchen knife ranges for almost two hundred years. They have a couple of Sabatier ranges and many other types of knife ranges to suit any household.
This set is from the Sabatier Trompette range, notable for its modern, sleek design and sheer quality. Very sharp, these knives are quick and easy to sharpen, are dishwasher safe and come with a 25 year guarantee.
The Sabatier Trompette 5-piece Knife Block contains;
- Paring knife
- All purpose knife
- Carving knife
- 20cm Cook’s knife
- Bread knife
- Modern wooden knife block
Out of the box it’s immediate obvious that this set is eye-catching and wonderfully designed. The knife block is totally original, slim-line and looks fantastic. The knives sit firmly in it but are quick and easy to remove when needed. The knives are full tang and riveted with oversized stylish rivets, completely the pretty magnificent look. Can you tell it’s one of our favourites?
All the knives in this set are regular essentials and it’s a fundamental kitchen set. The quality in each blade is immediate obvious, no corners have been cut here. Tangibly weighted and balanced, each knife feels steady and secure it your hand, comfortable with its ergonomically shaped handle.
The bread knife in this set, like other Richardson Sheffield bread knives, will change your lunchtime experience. So many bread knives are flexible, lightweight and don’t give any precision of care when cutting bread; this knife slices with blissful ease and makes cutting bread a split second, neat task. It’s super sharp, a beautiful shape and feels solid and weighty.
The all purpose knife is another winner here and you’ll probably find yourself using it all the time. Again it has a very good weight and balance to it and can handle so many foods. With the ground, tapered blade, you won’t find yourself sharpening these very often at all and they remain extremely sharp for a long time – so watch out.
The knife block is very unique in that it will genuinely suit any kitchen. Its wooden body sits on top and slick metal foot with ‘Sabatier Trompette’ set into it, adding to the super modern styling. For modern, metallic kitchens this block will fit right in but the light wood will also allow it to look at home in more heritage, wood based kitchen styles.
- Great looking knife block
- Supreme quality, weight and balance
- Good price for what you get
Richardson Sheffield is normally moderately expensive but you can get this set for a great price. The quality is second to none and each knife happily lives up to the Sabatier reputation with ease. The knife block itself looks so good that the knives would have to be really poor quality to not fall in love with it, and considering they’re all fantastic, the whole set just lights up the kitchen.
With an essential selection of kitchen knives, this set would be well received by a day to day domestic chef or a cook who really relished style and quality. Each knife is a pleasure to use, especially the bread knife, and this has got to be one of the best 5-piece sets around.>>> Click Here to see Pricing and Reviews on Amazon <<<
