Robert Welch Designs “set out to design the best knife in the world”

The international jury of design experts in the Red Dot scheme examines and tests the products and assesses them according to criteria such as degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, longevity, ecological compatibility and clarity of function.

In total 3,231 products from 49 nations faced the expert judgement this year. The award-winning products are exhibited to an international public in the Red Dot design museum in Essen, Germany.

Commenting on the award, Rupert Welch, managing director of Robert Welch Designs, said: "We set out to design and engineer the best knife in the world and worked with professional chefs on the development of the Signature range.

"Receiving this award, shortly after the announcement that this product has also won the Good Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, acknowledges excellence in design at the highest levels."

The Signature knife block and knives were designed in-house by Paul deBretton Gordon and Rupert Welch. They have been found to be in the world's top 3% of all knives tested for initial sharpness and edge retention.
