SHEFFIELD CUTLERY FLATWARE & SILVER GIFTS
LOOSE ITEMS OF CUTLERY
Some customers prefer to slowly build up to a large collection of cutlery
that might be beyond their budget to purchase all at the same time.
Persons seeking loose items of cutlery are often replacing missing/lost
items. Sometimes, we are asked to supply a number of items that were
not included in the originally-purchased cutlery e.g. you might now
require a set of steak knives or coffee spoons that you do not already
own. We will do our best to help you.

IMPORTANT WARNING - Please do appreciate, however, that cutlery patterns may change slightly over time, even from the same supplier, so we cannot always be sure to offer a 100% perfect exact match to the pieces that you own.
Please see this FAQ which contains more on this subject and which describes our policy when it comes to matching - Possible Matching Problems. Please follow the recommendations within that FAQ to avoid being left with badly mis-matched cutlery.
Small Orders Might Be Delayed
If you are seeking loose items of cutlery as opposed to sets, we can usually help you. However, some of our suppliers make everything to order and it is not always speedy to supply. Please appreciate that the factories may be being asked to set up their machinery for a few items to be produced and this is not always an efficient use of their production time. They really prefer to supply larger collections. Very small orders may sometimes be delayed until they can be combined with other orders for the same pattern from elsewhere. In those circumstances, please allow for possible delays beyond the standard timescales. If in doubt, please Contact Us for further guidance.
Which Piece - Which Size - Which Exact Pattern?
Sheffield Cutlery can usually be supplied in small quantities. This brand is usually made to conventional "Sheffield pattern" shapes and sizes for a wide range of styles.
Arthur Price brands are usually available in small numbers. Here is the starting point for Arthur Price Cutlery - all ranges. Arthur Price cutlery is not necessarily the same shape or size as Sheffield cutlery. If you need guidance, we are here to help you.
Elkington / James Dixon - is generally only available in full sets or, if you require specific pieces e.g. steak knives, the minimum number of those pieces that you can order is likely to be 12. Elkington / James Dixon cutlery is made in Sheffield so if you require just a few items in their styles, you should check the Sheffield Cutlery options because the sizes will tend to be the same. The makers' mark will be different though.
Order Some Spares Now?
If you are considering ordering a full set of cutlery now, we do recommend
that you think about ordering some extra pieces at the same time. Small
items, such as teaspoons, are very easy to throw away by mistake. A
missing item can really spoil a collection and may even spoil your dinner
party. Because patterns might change slightly over the years, it could
be hard to find a good match for your cutlery when you need to buy some
replacements for the missing pieces 5, 10 or 20 years down the line.
If you buy those extra cutlery pieces now, it will ensure that none
of your dinner guests has to make do with a mis-matched piece of cutlery
in the future.
