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, pen knives, folding knives, clasp knives, survival knives, bushcraft knives, safety knives and scissors available at reasonable prices, for example from:
A.Wright and Son Limited – http://www.penknives-and-scissors.co.uk – make scissors, cutlery, kitchen knives, pen and pocket knives, hunting knives, sheath knives, British Army knives, ettrick knives, boating knives, throwing knives, commando knives, bowie knives, bushcraft and survival knives. Started in 1947, Arthur Wrights is a traditional Sheffield Pen and Pocket knife manufacturer. Everything is done in-house in Sheffield. The quality of their products is excellent and they are good value for money. I have an Arthur Wright 70W 70mm Farmers Sheepfoot Pocket Knife and it really is a sturdy no-nonsense knife and a fabulously useful tool. My 70W Farmers Sheepfoot weighs 80 grams (2.8 oz), has an overall blade length of 70mm (2.75″), a straight cutting edge of 63mm (2.48″) and an overall length of 158mm (6.25″). The Farmers Sheepfoot Pocket Knife is iconic and very much a traditional country knife.
