British made kitchen knives, cutlery, scissors, pewter-ware and silverware

The United Kingdom and in particular Sheffield, England is world famous for its steel products and contrary to popular belief many fine quality steel products are still manufactured in Sheffield.  There is a wide choice of quality British made kitchen knives, cutlery, pocket knives and scissors available at reasonable prices.  British made kitchen knives, cutlery, scissors and silverware:-

John Lewis / Waitrose sometimes sell kitchen knives and cutlery that is made in Sheffield, for example the John Lewis branded knives pictured below. Some Waitrose (John Lewis) kitchen knives are finished off but not not made in the UK. For example the Waitrose Cooking all purpose knife says on the front on the packaging “precision ground in Sheffield, England” and on the back of the packaging it says “Finished in Sheffield, England” – http://www.johnlewis.com

Samuel Stainforth – http://www.s-staniforth.co.uk – have been making knives in Sheffield since 1864 and do a very large range of kitchen knives, chef knives, specialist knives, butcher equipment, survival knives, tactical knives, sheafs, knife wallets for chefs, sharpening tools, box sets, knife blocks, kitchen tools, scissors, accessories and a double handled cheese/chopping knife.  Samuel Staniforth Ltd. of Sheffield, England are manufacturers of The Smithfield range of knives.  They are all made in Sheffield.  We have a Samuel Staniforth Smithfield 6 inch Cook’s Knife.  It’s a good weight, very sharp and cuts well.  A thing of beauty and function.

David Mellor – http://www.davidmellordesign.com – David Mellor cutlery is manufactured in a purpose-designed modern factory in the Peak District National Park.  You can visit their factory.  The founder, David Mellor, now retired, is a designer and entrepreneur responsible amongst other things for a redesigned UK national traffic light system. Mellor’s design is still in use. He developed a controversial new square post box, and designed minimalist stainless steel cutlery produced in huge quantities for government canteens and NHS hospitals.  David Mellor have a shop in Sloane Square in London and another in Derbyshire.  They sell lots of stuff but I think only the David Mellor cutlery is manufactured in the Peak District National Park and that lots of the other things they sell are made abroad.  However, I think all David Mellor own brand kitchen knives are UK made (please check), as is their silverwear, and their weighing scales.  Their cutlery is beautiful.  It is not always clear from their website what items are made in the UK so it will be best to ask.

Taylor’s Eye Witness – http://taylors-eye-witness.co.uk – Taylor’s Eye Witness have been making knives for over 150 years in its Sheffield factory and continue to manufacture kitchen knives, scissors and pocket knives in Sheffield.  However, it is just their “made in Sheffield” range that is made in the UK.  The rest of their range is made abroad, so please select carefully.  Taylor’s Eye Witness also have a variety of sharpening steels and sharpening devices in their “made in Sheffield” range.  The Taylor’s Eye Witness company was called Harrison Fisher & Co Ltd up until 1st June 2007 when the company was re-named.  Have a look at any search engine to buy or go to www.premiercutlery.co.uk. The Sheffield Eye Witness catalogue clearly states which knives are made in England and they do a good range of kitchen knives, professional knives, and trade knives including colour coded knives and specialist tools, as well as a British made magnetic knife rack, British made scissors and shears, some British made sharpening steels and sharpening machines, and a great range of British made pocket knives – http://taylors-eye-witness.co.uk

Don’t buy Richardson Sheffield; their knives are no longer made in the UK.  The company retains ‘Sheffield’ in its name which is an outright deception of British consumers and should not be allowed.

    I bought a full stainless steel canteen and additional items from United Cutlers some years ago believing them to be of good quality and assured by an unconditional lifetime guarantee. Unfortunately the knife blades have begun to separate from the handles.
    United Cutlers are now known as Hiram Wild/ J&C Products and they tell me they have no liability in respect of this guarantee and generally have been less than helpful.
    Can anyone tell me whether this is correct or offer any other advice please.

      This is how it goes here in the UK. Bad Luck. However it is practice to fob off customers with tell-tale excuses. The average British customer would go away and accept what they are being told. It’s just the complacent mentality that they can’t be bothered to put in the energy for a fight. Stick to your guns, ask to have it explained to you by a supervisor. Don’t go away and keep pushing.
      However I am not sure if a lifetime US style warranty is legal in the EU. I believe it’s considered misleading because it raises the question what lifetime refers too. Your lifetime or the products life-time or even the manufacturers life-time. Most likely it refers to product life-time and this can be finished when a manufacturer decides to no longer make the product and hence support seizes. Continuity is NOT a British strength.
      I have German inherited cutlery and I could still buy spare knifes & forks 45 years on when my family expanded.

      Good Luck

      BTW. Don’t buy cutlery storage “WRS Cutlerymate” in the UK. It’s NOT British made as claimed further up the page: “Everything Chimo Holding sell appears to be made in the UK.”
      It’s made by ALBEC in Germany.
      I found the online retail price in Germany for some of the items to be less than half of what is being charged in the UK by Chimo Holding who only have a TradeMark on the product called “Cutlerymate”

    That article about Ernest wright and son makes out that the Sheffield steel industry is tiny, and there are two tiny scissor companies. In fact, this is not the case, Kutrite is a lot more famous, but Whiteley sell 250,000 pairs a year, it says – one thousand per day (250 working days in a year – excluding weekends). They are doing very good business (there must be very few quality scissor factories in the world (including Germany, and France, and USA, et cetera))

      Totally agree. The volumes of quality scissors made in Sheffield are high. What you can’t do these days of course is walk into into any British supermarket or corner shop or High Street shop and buy British made scissors. They simply do not sell them.

    My husband and I received a set of eight Wilkinson Sword (made in Sheffield) knives 27 years ago. We have used them constantly, washed them in a dishwasher, and never sharpened them. Amazingly, they are still sharp! They are by far the best knives we’ve ever owned. Sadly, all but three of them have been lost over the years. I’d love to find another set but they are hard to come by. Ebay sometimes has them, but rarely the ones made in Sheffield. I would replace them with something similar, but have no idea what maker/company to go with. What would you recommend? Thank you in advance.

      Hello. Much the same with my set of Richardson made in England knives although I don’t put them in the dishwasher. Sadly neither Wilkinson nor Richardson make knives in the UK anymore. I’m not sure what brand I would recommend, except to say that you should stick with Sheffield made kitchen knives. You might try Samuel Stainforth, David Mellor, Taylor’s Eye Witness, A. Wrights and Sons, J. Adams, Granton, Slater Knives (I have some of these; excellent quality), Blok Knives – Try the links from my article and see what you like http://wp.me/p2KOue-tB

        Hi. I think you are right. Thank you. Well thought of. The Wilkinson name is still used on some Whiteley scissors and they describe themselves as William Whiteley & Sons (Sheffield) Ltd (incorporating Thomas Wilkinson & Son, Manufacturers of Tailors Shears and Scissors). The firm of Thomas Wilkinson was acquired by the then William Whiteley in the year 1875. Now I don’t know what connection, if any, there is between Thomas Wilkinson and Winkinson Sword. Do you happen to know? According to Wikipedia Wilkinson Sword product lines have included guns, bayonets, and implements such as typewriters, garden shears, scissors, and motorcycles and razor blades and razors. The company is now owned by Energizer Holdings and all production is abroad. The last Wilkinson Sword factory making razors in the UK was closed down in 2000 and in 2005 the sword making in London was closed with the equipment being sold to a German company and an Indian company. So, despite the name, Wilkinson Sword do not even make swords. There is also a garden centre called “Thomas Wilkinson & Son” in Keighley in West Yorkshire; probably no connection to either. I guess perhaps Kathy’s knives were actually made by Wilkinson Sword but I’m not sure and can’t find much on the history of the Wilkinson name. The Wilkinson Sword name is still used on some gardening tools but I don’t know who makes them, but possibly the name is still owned by Fiskars?

    I was looking for,of all things, a vegetable peeler.Having exhausted vegetable peeler made in uk,made in england etc.i decided to be mpre specific.I typed in “peeler made in sheffield” and found Samuel Staniforth & granton knives to have potato peelers which i presume are made in sheffield and a made in sheffield taylors eye witness peeler knife which appears to have the blade angled and with a sort of buffer that makes the knife work like a regoular peeler.Also, i dont know which ctegory this should go in but is similar in nature to this article,Delfinware.co.uk make “british domestic wireware”,consisting of wine racks,dish drying racks,drainer etc and the website says “Delfinware is manufactured in Kent, England.”

      apparently thesamuel staniforth “peeler is from Nogent in France”.So much for S Staniforth “MADE “PROUDLY” IN SHEFFIELD SINCE 1864”.Is it so hard to put coiuntry of origin next to every product?

        Thanks for your comment and sorry it has taken so long to respond. I often find it is hard to find what you want and suppliers, disappointingly Samuel Stainforth in this case, often seem to go out of their way to mislead customers about where products are made. Delfinware sits nicely with another company British Drainers and I have written about them at https://ukmade.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/british-drainers-dish-drainers-washing-up-racks/ Thank you for the information.

    Which manufacturer would you suggest me for a brand new cutlery canteen? I would like an high-quality, Sheffield made canteen, for an everyday use.

      I don’t really know. I think buying quality British made is a good idea though. There are plenty to choose from. Look at their websites and see what takes your fancy in your price range. Think about size too. I would personally steer for a plainer and more simple design, but you might think differently. Good luck choosing. Let me know you what you choose if you have the time.
