As well as our handmade Sheffield made knives and scissors we stock antique and vintage Sheffield made cutlery. Antique and vintage Sheffield made paper knives have survived simply because they were never subject to robust use. So you can see the knife makers skill in these products and they make fine gifts.
Fine silver items can be cheaper than modern mass produced stainless steel. Items for sale include not just cutlery but also items like letter openers hand made by the finest Sheffield silversmiths are available at modest prices.
All the our Sheffield silver comes boxed either in it’s original box or a new box. We always state whether it’s the original box or a new box. Fine cutlery compliments fine food but the downside with some of these items is that you might have to count the spoons before your guests leave.
These items make quality original gifts for Mothers Day, Fathers Day, birthdays and Christmas but as these items are one offs unlike our Sheffield knives if you see something you like you should buy it whilst it is available.
Sheffield made silver gifts are for the discerning present giver and represent a by gone era of quality items using skills which have all but disappeared and you can buy them from our famous Sheffield shop. We have antique and vintage pocket knives for sale and antique and vintage folding knives for sale.
We post world wide and we will be happy to advise you of the cost. We attach a handwritten label to each item describing what it is and the maker.
Some of these items make excellent gifts for cooks, chef’s and those who like to hold afternoon tea parties. They are superior to the same things that you can buy today and add a touch of elegance to special events. For christenings and birthdays these items will not be just thrown away they will be kept for years. Why buy a cheap mass produced item when you can buy a fine handmade item made by a Sheffield silversmith.
