Joseph Rodgers is perhaps rivalled only by George Wostenholm in terms of its importance to Sheffield cutlery and its fame around the world. The mark of The Star and Maltese Cross was registered by the Rodgers Company in 1764. With increasing business in what is thought to have been exclusively Pocket Knives, in around 1780, the firm moved to larger premises at No. 6 Norfolk Street. Eventually, as Rodgers expanded, it would acquire surrounding property until the famous Norfolk Street Works occupied the entire plot. Joseph Rodgers’ success is evident in the firm’s appointment to five successive sovereigns - George IV, William IV, Queen Victoria, Edward II and George V. Rodgers & Sons made popular private purchase weapons during WW1 including trench daggers. This a is an original WW1 era British Officer’s private purchase trench fighting knife by Joseph Rodgers & Sons with its original leather scabbard.

Rodgers & Sons 6 Norfolk St, Sheffield, England’ together with Kings Crown and ‘GR’ (George Rex) and the reverse with Star and Maltese Cross trademark. The knife measures 11” overall length. Its original brown leather scabbard has a riveted integral belt loop and retaining strap with small buckle.

Early 20th Century Pesh-Kabz Choora / Khyber Afghan Knife With Ivorine Sectioned Grips & Scabbard. Sn 12500:3 - 12500:3
The Pesh-Kabz or Choora is a type of Perso-Afghan knife (see page 494 of Stone's book 'A Glossary Of Arms & Armour'). The knives were typically used a a thrusting weapon, however their heavy blades also possessed considerable slicing performance, and as such may also be used effectively with slashing or cutting strokes. During the British Colonial rule in India, the British frequently referred to all Afghan blades of this pattern collectively as "Afghan knives" or "Khyber knives", after the Khyber Pass that marked the transition from British India to the nation of Afghanistan. In India, manufacture of the pesh-kabz was centred in the northern city of Bhera, now part of Pakistan. During the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars, the pesh-kabz was frequently the weapon of choice for finishing off wounded British and colonial troops, as the Afghan tribesmen did not take prisoners except for use as hostages. This is a very good example of the pesh-kabz / choora form knife most likely made some time in the early 20th Century. It has a heavy 7 ½” single edged blade (12 ¾” overall). The blade has fullers and is 1 ½” wide at its broadest. The blade has staining and wear consistent with age but no rust. It has the correct curved pronged pommel and finger guard. The pommel has a small fixed lanyard ring. The brass grip frame is decorated with crude hand tooled geometric and foliate designs. The scales are formed from sections of ivorine. The knife is complete with its original wood lined, brass covered scabbard. The scabbard has hand tooled geometric decoration and a fixed belt bar holed for cord. The scabbard has some areas of surface wear consistent with age. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12500:3

The Pesh-Kabz or Choora is a type of Perso-Afghan knife designed to penetrate chain mail armour (see page 494 of Stone's book 'A Glossary Of Arms & Armour'). The knives were typically used as a thrusting weapon, however, the wide ‘T’ section blade also possesses considerable slicing performance, and as such may also be used effectively with slashing or cutting strokes. During the British Colonial rule in India, the British frequently referred to all Afghan blades of this pattern collectively as "Afghan knives" or "Khyber knives", after the Khyber Pass that marked the transition from British India to the nation of Afghanistan. In India, manufacture of the pesh-kabz was centered in the northern city of Bhera, now part of Pakistan. During the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars, the pesh-kabz was frequently the weapon of choice for finishing off wounded British and colonial troops, as the Afghan tribesmen did not take prisoners except for use as hostages. This is a very good original example of the pesh-kabz / choora made in the Victorian era. It has a heavy 9" single edged T section blade (13 ¼” overall). The 1 ½” wide blade with single edge narrows to a pin sharp point. The blade has staining consistent with age but no rust and is etched on both sides with foliate designs. It has the correct curved pronged pommel and finger guard. The pommel has a small fixed lanyard ring. The grip frame is decorated with hand tooled geometric designs. The scales are formed from sections of wood and pieces of riveted polished bone or antique ivory. The pommel sections have pierced foliate decoration. The scales have a few minor, stable chips consistent with age and use. The knife is complete with its original wood lined, leather hide covered scabbard. The leather is pierced near to the throat to reveal a naïve green and red enamel effect decoration. The leather of the scabbard has some areas of surface wear. The scabbard has a small external metal chape. Price for this great historic piece includes UK delivery. Sn 12500:1
