Ibberson is a famous and popular name in the Sheffield cutlery industry. From the mid-17th century to the beginning of the 19th century, there were just under a hundred Sheffield cutlers named Ibberson (or Ibbotson). A cutler named William Ibberson operated in the Stannington area to the north west of Sheffield as long ago as 1666, but it has been claimed that the origins of the George Ibberson company can be traced back to a Joseph Ibberson who made cutlery in 1700. In 1873, the company registered its world famous Stradivarius Violin trademark with The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire. This mark, along with Ibberson’s other great trademark, Double sharp ##, would go on to gain legendary status amongst knife enthusiasts the world over. The blade measures 7 cm and hasn’t been re sharpened. ‘George Ibberson – Double Sharp ## Stainless Sheffield England’ is etched to one side of the polished blade.
