Vintage and antique Sheffield knives and gifts made by Sheffield knife makers and silversmiths

Vintage and antique Sheffield knives have always appealed to collectors and are increasingly difficult to find. Old Penknives and pocket knives in decent condition are a rarity and some of the skills associated with there production are long gone. Not only do you see the work of the knife maker in these creations you also see the art of the silversmith. Frequently the knife body will be made in Sheffield the home of British knife making with the silver casing added in Birmingham. Some folding knives will combine items like pencils and rulers plus a variety of other tools like bottle openers. The last of the present day Sheffield knife makers do not make the vast range of multi-bladed knives that were made in Victorian times.

You still have to be 18 plus to buy these knives and if you see an item you would like just send us an email. All  these Sheffield made items come postage paid in the UK. They make fine Sheffield made gifts and we ship all over the world. Included with each item will be a short description of what it is and where we have managed to decipher the marks we will tell you what those are.

Most of these items come gift boxed  mostly not with there original boxes because these are long gone. Boxes may be different from the pictures shown.  Where we do not have a gift box we will tell you. The prices include postage within the UK and we will advise you of how much it will cost to post your Sheffield gift worldwide.
