In the 1850s, John Thomas Petty (c.1818-1887) appeared in directories as a grocer and shopkeeper at 58 Garden Street. By the 1860s, John T. Petty was forging blades again. In 1868, he advertised as a maker of farriers’ and oyster knives. He established a thriving business, which later passed to his sons (by his wife Sarah): John Thomas Petty (1848-1931) and Joseph Heald Petty (1856-1920). In the 1880s, John Petty moved to Crookesmoor Road (see Tweedale’s The Sheffield Knife Book page 248). The cutler William Gregory established his own business in 1843. He appeared in a Sheffield directory in 1865, making table and butchers’ knives in Peel Street, Broomhill. He died on 15 October 1909. The business was taken over by John Petty & Sons. Samuel’s son, Samuel Alfred, became the senior partner in Gregory Bros. William Gregory & Sons was still listed at Garden Street in Kelly's Directory of the Engineering, Hardware & Metal Trades, 1934, the location of John Petty & Sons. Joseph Mills was recorded as a Sheffield cutler in the 1860s. Joseph was a manufacturer of table and butchers’ knives in Allen Street. By the end of the 1880s, Joseph Mills had moved to Essex Works in Scotland Street, where he made table and butchers’ knives, cook and bread knives, and steel and cast steel cleavers. In the early 20th century, the works address was Court No. 5, Smithfield, and Scotland Street. Petty then acquired Mills’ trade mark. Charles Anthony Argyle (1859-1938) began business as a farriers’, plumbers’, and putty knife manufacturer. In 1901, C. A. Argyle & Co’s address was Pool Works, Burgess Street. The directory (1905) suggests that Argyle had acquired W. Grady & Co. By 1911, Argyle was based in West Hill Lane (off Devonshire Street). Argyle’s traded into the 1920s, when it became a limited company at Argyle Cutlery Works, 156 Rockingham Lane. However, it was liquidated in 1935.

The Giant comprises 87 tools that can perform 141 different functions. The Wenger Giant did feature in the Guinness World Records. specifically, the Guinness Book Of World Records awarded it the distinction of being the ‘most multifunctional penknife‘. This is what Guinness says about the Wenger Giant: “The most multifunctional penknife is the Swiss Army Giant Knife 2007, manufactured by Wenger S.A. in Delemont, Switzerland, which contains 87 tools and offers 141 different functions”. The Giant ended up having 14 blades, three types of pliers, countless screwdrivers, saws, wrenches, and a lot of other tools. Wenger made it available for purchase around 2007, the year it won the Guinness Record. It comes only in standard red-coloured Wenger Branded scales. The Giant is an enormous SAK. Though impressive by design and craftsmanship, the model is so large that it is impractical for any type of actual use. It is not something you can carry with you anywhere, be it in your pocket or in your bag, however, Wenger has made it pretty clear that the Giant was not designed to be a practical knife, it was specifically used for promotional purposes by Wenger, mainly to attract the attention of dealers at trade shows.
