POCKET KNIVES BY TREVOR ABLETT
- A SHEFFIELD 'LITTLE MESTER'

(A Traditional Master Craftsman)

Trevor Ablett Little Mester Trevor Ablett marking

Trevor Ablett
Trevor Ablett is one of the few remaining craftsman knife makers in Sheffield - termed a "Little Mester" locally. Although he has passed his normal retirement age, Trevor has declared his intention of continuing to produce his hand-made pocket knife range which we make available to you via this web site. Handle Types

These 100% Sheffield-made pocket knives come in a variety of styles.

Handles
You may choose handles made from Rosewood, Redwood, Camel Bone (Stag look-alike), imported Buffalo Horn, Cocobolo, Black Palm, Purple Heart (wood), Black Walnut, Zebrano, or Olivewood. The knife handles are all natural materials and your knife may differ slightly in appearance from the photos shown.

Blade
The knife blades are carbon steel and fold away safely for true pocket knife portability. A range of knife blade shapes can be ordered: Clip Point, Lambfoot, Ettrick Lambfoot, Farmer's, Pruner, Peach Pruner (smaller version), and Spearpoint.
Update: increasingly, Trevor Ablett is moving towards stainless steel blades and it is possible that your knife will be fitted with such a blade. Modern day stainless steel is said to be capable of holding a sharp edge, plus it has the advantage of being much more stain resistant than carbon steel.The pocket knife handles are single- or double-bolstered in brass depending on your choice.

pocket knife The pocket knife blades measure approx 3.5 inches in length for ease of carriage, storage and use (blade measurement includes the portion of the knife blade that incorporates the hinge inside the bolstered section; the cutting surface length will be shorter and, we understand, is within the legal permit to be carried by responsible persons under the age of 18).

Gift Box/Pouch
Each pocket knife comes with a certificate of authenticity from Trevor Ablett. Each knife will be sent with either a 'Little Mesters' gift box or with a velvet pouch which you may use to carry the knife in your pocket to protect the handle from scratches from keys and coins. You can also order both for an extra £1.00.

Pocket knives are perfect to own. Ideal and thoughtful gifts for him or for her. Suitable for country life, gardening, hobbies, crafts and a thousand and one uses. A pocket knife is a great product that is hand made and a lasting souvenir of Sheffield, the traditional home of knife making.

MEDIA COVERAGE OF TREVOR ABLETT:

* GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER - in January and March 2010
Trevor Ablett made the UK national press with an excellent feature on his work skills.



* VIDEO
The article was followed up by a video feature that can be found here: Disappearing Acts: Making a Sheffield Pocket Knife Video.

* BBC TV
BBC2's Great British Railway Journeys broadcast in January 2011, and repeated July 2011, June 2012 and June 2014, featured Trevor Ablett and his workshop-sharing associate Reg Cooper (the Bowie Knife maker).
You can catch the programme via YouTube at this link: Great British Railway Journeys (view from about 19 mins 30 secs into the clip).

* SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
Trevor had a feature and photo in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper magazine in early 2011 relative to him being nominated for an award.

DELAYS
All this publicity has led to a flood of enquiries and orders for Trevor's handiwork which is good for the recognition of his skills but which has led to delays in the supply of knives. The delay from the Guardian and other coverage has caused a knock-on effect resulting in a permanent backlog situation which has endured for fully 4 years.

We regularly have a backlog of knife orders due to high demand, and often have very little Trevor Ablett knife stock - see the table below for more details.

Trevor is doing his best to keep up with orders but demand is still high. He is one craftsman, working alone, and can only do what one man can do. Your patience is appreciated.
If you don't mind waiting a few weeks, please place your order and we will despatch as soon as we can. We 'guess-timate' at 4-6 weeks for new orders at the moment if we are out of stock of your preferred knife.

If you have a strict deadline date, please ask before ordering or explore the alternative Sheffield pocket knife maker below.

Please note that payment is made at the time of placing of the order. Our system does not have the capacity to defer the collection of payment so you could be paying for the order some time before the goods are received. If this is unacceptable, please do not order yet. However, customers who do pay now will naturally be given priority over those who merely register an interest.
Persons who order, pay, and then cancel before dispatch will be charged a fee of up to 10% of the value of the order to cover our un-recoverable payment-processing fees and our administration time.

UPDATE - 2014: - Trevor Ablett has recently returned to work after recovering from a broken arm and is making good progress. We are trying to build up some stock. The available knives will be listed in the table below showing Trevor Ablett knives in stock.

If you are unwilling to wait, perhaps consider a knife by ARTHUR WRIGHT.

My Arthur Wright knife arrived today. A farmer's knife with buffalo handle, so just a quick note to say thank you I'm absolutly delighted with it. I had originally ordered a Trevor Ablett penknife, but due to the huge demands on Trevor's order book, and due to your recomendation I switched, so thank you to Arthur Wright this is a really special penknife.

ABOUT THE KNIVES

CARBON STEEL
Carbon steel is not stainless steel but it can be kept bright and shiny with care. You should avoid leaving your knife to stand in a wet condition. Even the humidity in your house can tarnish the metal if not stored correctly. Certain corrosive liquids can cause staining e.g. if you use a knife to cut an apple, the acid in the apple juice will cause tarnishing. Even fingerprints can transfer moisture to the blade which might stain it. Always clean your knife after use, and store in a very dry location. Carbon steel has an advantage over normal stainless steel in that they can be produced with very sharp blades.

We have been advised that an increasing number of Trevor Ablett knife blades will be made with stainless steel blades. By 2014, it is possible that all of his knives will be stainless steel. Trevor advises that the stainless steel that he is using is a hard material and provides a good sharp edge.

MATERIALS USED
Please note that all materials used to make these knives are genuine, not artificial. Some sites we have seen offer goods with plastic or synthetic handles. Only genuine materials can be found here.

TRADE ENQUIRIES WELCOME
We look forward to receiving enquiries from retailers of this type of item e.g. gift shops, gardening suppliers, hobby shops, fishing equipment retailers, boating accessories, sporting/country goods, etc. Please order very early because this is a single master craftsman working as fast as he can to produce knives to a high standard of workmanship. If you would like stock for your retail establishment, please order well in advance of any deadline that you may have. Click here for our Trade Enquiry Form.

TREVOR ABLETT POCKET KNIFE RANGE

Because there is an element of hand-manufacture in the making of these knives, quoted blade lengths should be regarded as approximate and may vary slightly. Measurements include the whole of the blade length. The cutting portion of the edge will be shorter and within legal limits for the carrying of a pocket knife.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

Got the pocket knife today, thrilled with it its greatly crafted can only imagine how decent the other knife will be.
LS, UK

Many thanks, the two knives I ordered 11th Dec 2013 arrived, much sooner than I was expecting, on 11th February 2014. Absolutely worth the wait. Wonderful, marvellous craftsmanship. Looking forward to many years of use. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Trevor.
RH, UK

The knife arrived in the post today and I am delighted with it. I am glad I waited and got the particular model I saw on the website.
Thank you and thank Trevor Ablett when you next meet.
AC, UK

All the best, LE, USA

Thank you, the 2 knives arrived today and are wonderful.
Regards, CL, New Zealand

Many apologies for not notifying you of the receipt of the pocket knives I ordered, as I promised to do. They were gifts and so were forwarded. You will be pleased to know that one of the recipients, a friend for over sixty years who does his own skinning and carving and who used to do his own slaughtering as well, said that his knife (two-bladed with a stag handle: he lives in Scotland) was very sharp, sharper than his carving knife! As one who lived in Sheffield for part of the war years (coals to Newcastle, since it was to avoid The Blitz ) and visited my aunt and uncle there a number of times afterwards, I feel a great kinship with the city. My daughter, another of the recipients, did her second degree there also. I'm thinking of ordering one for myself, though I've got a good knife that my wife bought me.
Sorry to write at such length, but please feel free to select from this reply for advertising purposes on your web-site if it is any use.
Yours, MR

I just wanted to let you know that the first knife, of the two that I ordered, has arrived today in the mail.
The knife is just great. I am very pleased. Thank you very much!
Please let me know when the second knife is on its way in the post.
I have a couple of friends who are quite enthusiastic about the knife which I received and there seems to be an interest among them to also order a knife or two. DH, Germany

The knives were received yesterday, many thanks for dealing with my order so promptly. They are fantastic, such great quality - I will definitely be ordering myself one in a few months.

-JS, NYPD

Many thanks: knife delivered today. A really impressive piece of work and it is made in England! (which is very important to me and well worth the additional cost over some supposedly American knives that are really made in China)
LV, UK

My order arrived a couple of days ago and I could not be happier with the knives. One is for my son who is enlisting in the Army, and the other is for my father, who recently suffered a minor stroke.
Please pass on my thanks to Trevor for his wonderful work. And many thanks to you for coordinating the engraving of the knives and keeping me updated.
Merry Christmas, Very Sincerely, MF, UK

Have just received my second Trevor Ablitt pocket knife, thank both yourself and Trevor for the early delivery , and again for the superb quality. There will certainly more orders from me in the future.
yours BH, UK

Please pass on my thanks to Mr ABLETT who made the pocket knife. I received my 'farmers stag' in excellent time and it is now honed and stropped. Great to think that it was formed in the hands of a craftsman.
WS, UK

Needless to say, I am absolutely thrilled with the knife, which arrived two days ago. I had it engraved, I refused to let it out of my sight, so they did it there, in Old English script, on the premises!!
If there’s any chance I could buy another, just like it, please let me know.
I know nothing about knives, but I can tell how beautifully balanced this work of art is. It’s not just knife and one is one I know my grandson will treasure forever.
Many thanks for your customer service support as well as affirming my faith in Sheffield products. They’re the best! JM, USA.

Many thanks Robert Day.
It was worth the wait, and it's quite magnificent! Thank you for keeping an eye on my order, and getting it to me in great shape.

DN, UK

I just received my knife. I truly love it and I can tell that's a Masterpiece! A treat from England!
Thank you,
B, Texas

The knife I ordered for my husband arrived today and it was well worth the wait. It is beautiful, truly the work of a fine craftsman.
We are not wealthy, and I was being a little frivolous ordering such a wonderful knife, but it replaces an Sheffield-made old timer that my husband lost last summer and missed. It's a tool he used every day as he will his new one. It went right into his pocket after a good deal admiration.
So, that said, I do hope that this finds Trevor feeling a good deal better than he did last fall. I would appreciate it if you could pass along yet another bit of praise for his wonderful work.
The very best,
MC, Lochiel, Glengarry Country, Ontario

My Trevor Ablett knife arrived safely today.
Thank you. Worth the wait !
KM, Australia

Just a line to express my gratitude for the wonderful piece of craftsmanship I received a couple of weeks ago. The waiting time was justified.
I have taken a little time out fully to appreciate the knife and am delighted with it.
Please tell Mr Ablett that his dedication and perfectionism is very much appreciated.
All best,

The knife has just arrived, and once again is absolutely excellent...
I'm sure the final recipient will be more than pleased with it. And so I thought it was about time that I ordered one for myself, so I'll put in an order on your web site asap! I appreciate that the double bolster models seem to be more popular than the singles, but to me that extra bit of brass makes all the difference. And there's no problem with the wait - the final product is worth it.
JT, UK

Got the knives, thank you. They are lovely. Can you tell me the exact type of steel used in the blades? (The blades are carbon steel.)

Many thanks (and for your patience when i have complained about the delay).
JC, France

I am absolutely chuffed to say that the package arrived this morning. Trevor's knife is a wonderful object and I want to order another of Trevor's - are there some which are on a somewhat shorter delivery than others?
Please pass on my thanks to Trevor - he is obviously a very gifted craftsman and I am saddened to think that his skills won't be effectively passed on.
Best wishes, SC, UK

Dear Mr Day,
Just to let you know the knife arrived today and it is just what I wanted.
I am sure my husband will be delighted with the gift.
Regards. JG

Dear Robert,
Thank you for my knife. I am delighted with it. One thing, I rounded the right angled part of the blate which displaces the spring upon pulling the knife open. I found this made the knife easier to open using a pinching between finger and thumb rather than using the nail notch. Perhaps you might want to pass that on. Again many thanks.
Regards.
JL

Hi Robert,
I received my knife yesterday. It came in the morning. I am very happy with it and glad I waited.
I can't believe how well it is finished considering the time it must take. I really wish I had a genuine need to use it and rely on it, as I am sure it would never let me down.
I am going to sharpen it and use it wherever I can (and buy another to keep boxed for my collection).
If you see him, tell him some fella was really happy and proud to own one of his knives.
thanks again

Dear Mr. Day.
Thank you for your assistance. The knives arrived last Friday. they are the best examples of knifemaking I have ever seen. This is the first time I have knowingly purchased hand made knives.
I am saving one of the two for a gift. It will go to the lead construction boss on the crew who is doing some remodelling on our home. I started out by giving surpluss new knives to one of his sons, then I decided I would give a knife to each of he crew. I am all done except for E.... When we near completeion in a month or so, I will present it to him in front of his sons and other workers. A fine tribute to a long time contractor to receive a beautiful hand made knife.
When you next speak with Mr. Ablett, tell him for me we are all in great admiration of his work in San Antonio, Texas. Expect another order soon.
With great appreciation, I remain.

Wish everyone had such a splendid service as yours.

It is great to have finally found a real handmade knife that is legal too.

CC, Texas

Hello Robert,
Many thanks for the prompt delivery of the above knife and even more thanks to T W Ablett for his fine craftsmanship. I am absolutely delighted with the knife and hope to use it for many years before I pass it on to my grandson. This knife replaces a pocket knife I inherited from my father, who used it regularly for many years – that one was made by Brookes & Cookes and is still a fine blade but there is not much of it left now!
Unfortunately, honing the blade over so many years have worn it away so much, it was time to look for a replacement. I trust my new pocket knife will be as good.
Many thanks again,
Regards, FR, UK

Just to let you know the pocket knife arrived safely and I am delighted with it.

Thank you for the two pocket knives which arrived today. One of these is a 21st birthday present for my daughter's young man - I hope he'll be as pleased as I am going to be with the other one!
We had popped into Bath to a huntin' and shootin' shop that I'd bought penknives from before. The shop turned out to have closed up, so I was pleased to find Trevor's wares on your web site. With the hand finish, presentation box and certificate, I'm certain yours was a much better choice.
Best regards and thank you again,

I ordered my knife at the end of January, and it's just arrived. Well worth the wait, it's a thing of great beauty and I'm pleased that some good things are still made in England!

Sincerely, TC, USA

After our previous exchanges of emails, the least I can do is to tell you that the knife arrived in the post this morning. I'm delighted to own an example of the work of one of the last Little Mesters, and I'm pleased to say it was worth the wait (and well worth the price). My thanks to you, and of course to Trevor Ablett. PDL, UK

Thank you, All 3 knives have been received now. They are outstanding. I would like more for my own use.
Can I order 2 more ...
MH, Australia

The knife I ordered arrived last week, and looks great. The young man it is destined for will be very happy with it indeed, and I'm sure it will give him many years of service.
I know that you still have a hugely long waiting list, so I'm going to put in another order asap for myself, and I'll be prepared to wait.
Best wishes, JT, UK

Just a note to thank you for my knife received today, which was definitely worth waiting for.
The knife is magnificent and I shall be obliged if you will pass my thanks on to Trevor.
Regards RC, UK

My order arrived yesterday safe and sound.
Well after a long wait all I can say is that it was well worth waiting for.
Please pass on my thanks to Trevor.
My wife now wants a pruning knife so I will be ordering again soon.

The pocket knives have arrived and are fine examples. Trevor has done an excellent job on both. They compare very well with my other high-end pocket knives in terms of fit and finish. I just could not be more pleased. Thank you - it was worth the wait!

Please pass my sincere thanks to Trevor Ablett for receipt of his pocket knife, box and certificate. My husband placed the order back in February and I received it a couple of weeks ago. Very belated as a Valentines present but wow what a fabulous gift. It's a most beautiful knife to be used in my garden. I can't wait to find a spare time slot to christen it by taking some yew cuttings.
Yours sincerely

Just to let you know that my knife has arrived - it looks very nice and I look forward to using it soon. I hope to order a couple more later this week, hopefully for arrival by mid- December.

Pen Knives received. Many thanks. I’d forgotten how beautiful they are. (my brother-in-law was given one by his daughter who lives in Sheffield ). My son and son-in-law are highly delighted with their belated birthday presents.

(My husband is 65 in 3 years time – should I place my order now????!!!!!!!) :)
