Vintage and antique Sheffield pocket knives and silver fruit 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.
