You must be over 18 to purchase this product.
Arthur Wright & Son is one of the last traditional cutler business left in Sheffield. It was formed in 1947 as part of the then thriving local cutlery industry. Following the decline of Sheffield’s steel industry, John Maleham, a local engineer from a long line of cutlers, took over the business in the 1990s to ensure Sheffield’s strong traditions would continue.
Head cutler Michael Harrison leads a team of apprentice-trained cutlers. They still fashion and construct each individual knife by hand from start to finish. After blanking out the blades from sheet metal they harden and temper the carbon steel before shaping, sharpening, grinding and glazing the blade and its rosewood handle. Each knife has been made to hand to this unique design especially commissioned by The Courtyard Dairy. The blade is engraved with “Made in Sheffield” and “The Courtyard Dairy”. Blank blades without “The Courtyard Dairy” engraving are also available in the drop down box.
The blade is made from carbon steel so can be sharpened very easily, but must be cleaned and dried thoroughly after use to prevent staining, especially when cutting high-acid foods.
