POCKET KNIVES FROM
THE ARTHUR WRIGHT WORKSHOP

The Arthur Wright Workshop

With many decades' experience of knife making, we bring you Arthur Wrights traditional Sheffield pocket knives. The pocket knives are individually hand-crafted at this skilled Sheffield Cutlers. The methods of manufacture have been used for many years. All of the processes that go into Sheffield pocket knife making are done in-house.

These knives shows the true craftsmanship of the Sheffield knife maker.

These pocket knives are now available for you to purchase via this web site.

ABOUT THE POCKET KNIVES

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

Handles

You may choose handles made from any of the following: Buffalo, Rosewood, Ebony and Stag.
The knife handles are all natural materials so your knife may differ slightly in appearance from the photos shown.

Blades

A range of knife blade shapes can be ordered: Clip Point, Ettrick, Farmers, Lambfoot, Pruner, Peach Pruner (smaller version) and Spearpoint. (See below for images and ordering).

Buffalo Ebony Rosewood Stag Buffalo

Carbon Steel

The knife blades are made from carbon steel and fold away safely for true pocket knife portability.
Carbon steel is not stainless steel so its needs a bit of extra attention. 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 it can produce hard, sharper blades.

All of the knives come with Brass linings & nickel bolsters.

The Knife-Making Process

Pocket knife blades are cut from sheet steel and the blades are marked, nail-nicked and drilled prior to the hardening process. After hardening and tempering, the blades are given a polish and are sharpened ready for assembly of the parts: blades, springs, linings, bolsters, handles and rivets. More grinding, shaping and a final polish leaves us with the finished product.

Legal to Carry

The pocket knife blades measure between 2.3" and 3" 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 is within the legal permit to be carried by responsible persons under the age of 18).

velvet pouch to carry pocket knife Pouch

Each knife will be sent 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.

"Have received my order, very happy. thanks," MG, Australia

"Just to let you know that I received my Arthur Wright penknife yesterday. I am really pleased with it and although I expected a good knife its quality has exceeded all expectations. I particularly like the polished blade which looks almost too good to use! I will order one of Trevor's (Ablett's) products as well as I sort of collect penknives, but I do use them too! Can you give me a steer on the wait times please? - e.g are there models with a quicker wait time? Kind regards, and I am very happy for you to use my comments as an endorsement if it is helpful." PF, UK

"Thanks for the Arthur Wright single blade. It is excellent.
Yours - JL, Orkney farmer."

"Replacement knife received today. I'm completely satisfied with the Arthur Wright in place of the T. Ablett. Thank you for an excellent service." - SG, UK

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.
