Knife safety around the home

Viners Assure Safety Knives…

With over 110 years of heritage, Viners has designed a new and innovative knife blade which places safety and functionality at the forefront.

The squared tip has been designed to maximise safe use in and around the home, ensuring that performance will not be compromised.

It’s similar to that of a Santoku knife, made of high quality stainless steel and features ergonomically designed, soft touch handles for the ultimate in comfort with a black non-stick coating on the blade to reduce cutting friction.

As well as being stylish, the knives deliver the same functionality as a standard kitchen knife to tackle all cooking tasks including chopping, carving and dicing, most impressively they are great knives if you are introducing your children to cooking.

The new blade design also gives added peace of mind in the home, helping to reduce unnecessary accidents when preparing food and washing up with no sharp points to cause injury.

These knives were created in response to new legislation called the Offensive Weapons Act 2019, where the UK Government has reclassified kitchen knives as an offensive weapon, we have developed an innovative new knife blade design by removing the sharp tip and replacing it with a squared end.

Created in conjunction with 1700 UK consumers who were consulted on the proposed new shape, we have designed a highly functional knife which is shaped to reduce and prevent injuries, accidents and fatalities, whilst still offering the same performance expected of a standard kitchen knife.
