While the humble table knife might be one of the most basic items we hire out, it is also one of the most important for anyone who is serving food at their event or special occasion. We’ve always got thousands in stock and are ready to serve parties no matter how big or small.

What are the different kinds of knife hire available?

There are generally two types of standard knives in any place setting. The table knife is the longer of the two and can be used both for cutting up food or for spreading things such as butter. The shorter style of knife is the dessert knife, which is used with foods like cakes and biscuits.

Styles can differ by the patterning on the handle or by type of metal used. Stainless steel knives are the most commonly used, but there has increasingly been a trend for gold and silver coloured cutlery in recent years.

Do I have to clean my knives for hire before they are returned?

Cleaning cutlery after a big function or occasion is not only a bothersome chore, but is also the time when pieces of cutlery are most likely to get lost while on hire.

It’s because of this we've been forced make it compulsory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All you need to do when you've finished with your cutlery hire is to remove any food debris from it before packing ready for collection.

What do I need to know about delivery of knife hire?

We clean and check all knives for hire before we band them together into packs ready for delivery. We don’t polish cutlery however, and we recommend that if you’re looking for a perfect finish it’s worth spending a little time buffing up cutlery once it’s arrived. With larger orders it’s always worth ordering a little bit extra, just to cover any eventuality.
