Sheffield made folding knives with grips made from the horn of Ankole cattle

ankole horn 250

The horn is from Nigeria and is the horn of the Ankole cattle sometimes called the cattle of kings. The animals roam free and at one time a persons wealth could be judged by how many of these cattle he owned. This legendary horn polishes beautifully and displays an array of subtle colours which the craftsmen of Sheffield bring out to perfection. It makes a folding knife to be treasured. Its been imported into the UK for centuries and our horn comes from one of the few horn works still operating and that company was founded around 1749. These Sheffield made folding knives come in a plain box and are post paid within the UK

Founded in 1749 a classic horn for knife grips.

1749 date 2
