There is a lot of history in Sheffield much more than i could in 1000 posts so will look at the men whom made the knives and some of there history. They were mostly know for sliver smith's and table cutlery then pocket and hunting knives as they expanded there lines with some offices in the states because of tariff 's.

A "whip" used to drill holes into knife-scales. The cutter wears a breast-plate to provide an end bearing.

With all the potential thefts, fires, earthquake damage and flooding, I have spread my stashes all over the country as a safety precaution, unfortunately I can't remember where most of them went.lol somewhere there is a secret treasure map and a code book, I can't remember where I hid those either. Strokes are a *****.lol

I would be remissed without adding the buffer girls of Sheffield whom buffed and polished all the cutlery.
