Cutting up food at an occasion or party can be tricky without your basic table knife - and we've got lots of styles of knives for hire available for you ready to be delivered to Southampton and the South Coast.
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.
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.
We deliver from Solent Event Hire to the whole of Southampton and the South Coast including to Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. Check the carriage calculator on the home page to find out how much a standard delivery costs.
