‘Double Sharp’ Pocket Knife and Leather Pouch by ‘George Ibberson-Sheffield’. ED 2647. - ED 2647
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. The unmarked two tone grips are held with three brass pins below two brass bolsters. The knife fits the black leather pouch perfectly, the stitching is intact. The pocket knife measure 16 ½ cm overall when opened and 9 ¾ cm when closed. The price for this collectable pocket knife includes UK delivery. ED 2647.

H.M. Slater Ltd Folding Pocket Knife and Leather Sheath. ED 2641. - ED 2641
The Slater cutlery business was founded in 1858 by Warrington Slater (1838-1907), who owned it with his brother, Walter Slater (1840-1917). They were the sons of John Marriott Slater and Ann Warrington. John (d. 1871) was spring knife cutler in Garden Street and then Pea Croft. Warrington was described in the Census (1871) as a spring knife cutler and local preacher (he was a Baptist). The firm was first listed as W. & W. Slater in Eyre Street (at the factory of George Butler), but was soon known as Slater Bros. The company manufactured pen and pocket knives, table cutlery, Bowies and dirks, many of which were shipped to South American markets. The firm is known to have made pocket knives for Frederic Barnes & Co for shipment to South America. In 1876, the firm moved to 94 Scotland Street. A full-page advertisement in a Sheffield directory (1884) announced: ‘Every Knife Made by Good Workmen … the Very Best Cast Steel Exclusively Used’. The number of patterns was precise: 5,914. Unwin & Rodgers’ knives and pistol-knives are pictured, perhaps because Slater had bought its old stock. Slater’s marks included VENTURE’ and ‘BEEHIVE’. He acquired the latter in 1876 (it had been used by John Hinchliffe and also apparently by Cockhill). The locking blade length is 7 ¾ cm long (16 ½ cm overall). The immaculate hardwood grips are held with four brass pins beneath brass pommels which are held with six brass pins. The blade is un sharpened and carries the ‘Venture’ brand name above ‘H.M. Slater’ and Stainless Steel. The thick leather sheath has a nice patina with all stitching in place and leather tab fastening. A very nice piece by a respected maker. The price includes UK delivery.

Also the Richards hollow ware factory R20; SatinsteelR21;. Mr. Tony Gibbs was given the managing directorship of these factories. According to member Sebago, the Schrade/I*XL knives were made at the Richards of Sheffield, factory, Moore Street in 1980/81. Five patterns were made and the bolsters were stamped (hallmark fashion) S W (head device) 0. The zero would indicate 1980 production. The S W would indicate Schrade / Wostenholm. The lock backs were made at Camillus, sent as skeletons to Sheffield where they were hallmarked on the bolsters, the handles were added, & the knives were finished. The patterns were; Three different size lockbacks (White micarta. Stag and Red Bone, as well as a three blade stockman in Red bone and a three blade* canoe in Stag. The knives were sold singly and in serial numbered sets with a display case. The faces of the blades were etched with a "Schrade Wostenholm" banner. Many were later sold without a serial number. The factories were sold by Imperial in August of 1982 to a British firm, Western Knives. It closed in October of 1983. The late James Parker leased the I*XL trademark from the people that held it for a short while (c.1983/4). The Egginton Group purchased both the Rodgers and the I*XL trade marks in 1986.
