Handmade pen knives and pocket knives manufactured in Sheffield, England

This a selection of John Maleham’s penknives and pocket knives. His folding knives are good examples of the Sheffield knife making tradition and the Buffalo handles each have a different pattern and of course to that extent each is unique. We only try to sell on the web site items we have in stock and the pictures of the Buffalo horn handles in particular will be different to the items we show but they will be equally fine. All the pocket and gardening knives are made from high quality carbon steel. Remember the prices quoted are total prices including UK postage.  If you are just looking for a quality traditional working penknife you do not need one with a polished blade just look at the description alongside each knife. The size is the size with the longest blade extended. We particularly recommend the pruners with the shaped handles as fine gardening knives

Remember the prices for the folding knives are the total prices and include 1st class UK postage They are gift boxed
