Laser Engraved Sheffield knives commemorating the Great War


somme centenary

The Battle of the Somme ran from 1st July until the 13th November 1916


We have a new page for the Battle of the Somme click on the Somme image to see it and the Sheffield made knife.

The wording on the knife blade is ‘Centenary of the Battle of the Somme 1916 - 2016’


The knife is a Sheffield made sheepsfoot, handmade in Sheffield. The blade is a traditional blade in use and developed over the centuries. It’s highly skilled work making a penknife and it’s making still depends on the skills of hand and eye. All the knives come boxed and post paid within the UK. The wood for the grips is from Lee Enfield rifle butts. The standard rifle of the British in the Great War. On the Somme the Lee Enfield rifles corroded, bent and with most of their walnut butt rotted away still come up out of the mud on a regular bases. These battlefield relics may still have the bayonets attached. Our walnut is from later Lee Enfield models than was used  on the Somme and the other Great War battles and dates from the start of Word War Two. We are somewhat constrained with the wording we can fit on the blade because of the size of the blade. To go back to the page with the 100th Anniversary engraving  click here.
