Sabatier Knives UK - Welcome

For customers seeking a high quality Sabatier knife made in France.

Summer Closure

We will be closed from Saturday 11th July to Sunday 19th July. Please see Delivery page for details.

We are a specialist kitchen knife retailer offering a range of high quality Sabatier knives made in Thiers, France by Thiers Issard under the Sabatier **** Elephant brand. These are complemented by a range of knife sharpening and other related kitchenware products from carefully selected manufacturers.

We stock various types of knives from general purpose cooks’ knives to the more specialist boning knives used for removing meat from bones or cutting fish and poultry, all in varying sizes and prices.

For those who are looking for a high quality knife at a reasonable price we have our Ideal range. Whilst these knives are not hand sharpened in the way of the knives in our Traditional Forged Ranges they are still made with the care and precision expected of Thiers Issard Sabatier. We stock them in stainless steel with black plastic handles. These knives are not made from a continuous piece of steel but have an aluminium bolster between handle and blade. They are therefore lighter than the other ranges.

For the professional chef or cooking enthusiast seeking our best quality knives we stock a range of Traditional Forged knives with a highly practical black nylon handle in both carbon and stainless steel. This is the type of knife that most people have in mind when they think of a Sabatier knife. These knives are constructed from a single forged piece of steel which runs from one end of the knife to the other. For customers looking not just for a very high quality knife but also enhanced aesthetics, we also stock Traditional Forged knives bearing the unusual red stamina wooden and white micarta handles.

The knives typically found in high street stores are of stainless steel whereas carbon steel knives are often the choice of professional chefs. If you are considering a carbon steel knife, before ordering please read our page on Choosing a Sabatier Knife where the differences are explained.

Some knives which may appear at the dining table are available in stainless steel only.

Take a look and see for yourself the beauty and elegance of these Thiers Issard Sabatier knives which will enhance both your kitchen and your cooking experience.

Please note that we conduct checks to ensure that our customers are of sufficient age to purchase knives and are unable to fulfil any order until such checks have been satisfactorily completed. We must therefore request that customers ensure that a correct date of birth is provided. Further details of how we might use your information may be found in our Privacy Policy.

Coronavirus - Please note that while we are currently still able to meet orders for knives we hold in stock, the Thiers-Issard factory is working on a restricted basis until further notice due to the coronavirus threat. We will therefore not be able to meet orders for out of stock items in the near future. Postage is dependant on the Royal Mail and we are now seeing delays in the service to some locations. We are normally able to post out orders which are received by midday on that day.
