I come from sheffield though now live in nottingham as a student. I seem to have found a little market on britishblades for JAdams knives.
I've also noticed that people talk about the granton edge. I've grown up with this edge and like it very much. That was in the days when Graton of sheffield didn't let others use the design. They now can't stop them. I know Granton wont deliver knives so I would think they are hard for you guys to get.
I could of course also get other knives made in sheffield. Taylor eye witness make some good ones. This need not be just kitchen knives of course.
Would you guys be interested?

Hi Andy
Recently discovered Sheffield knives since I have an interest in traditional American knives.
Would be quite interested in acquiring some of these knives.

If you want to sell on Bladeforums you'll have to get a Dealer Membership and advertise in the Dealer sections. For details click on the link at the top of the page that says:

I have really liked traditional Sheffield folders since I first saw one. Don't know what the Granton edge is and would appreciate a little education.

Kieth Spenser in Western Australia is doing his best to get Australian knife nuts interested in knives from Sheffield. I don't know anyone who has bought one yet.

I would of course upgrade to a dealer account if I was selling on here. At the moment it was just looking for how much interest there would be.
I'll get some pics up very soon of the Granton edge.

Ive seen the granton edge, never noticed in real advantage of it. It is somewhat hard to sharpen.

I must admit with mordern metals I wonder if it makes much difference. My dad (ex butcher) likes them. The knives are desgined to only need a steel (rough of course) to sharpen them so I can't see why they are harder. I'd think the oppisite. A ceramic hone would be good for them I guess.

I was hoping to find out what sheffield knives americans would like. Names that spring to mind are
*Taylor eye witness
*Granton
*JAdams (www.sheffieldknives.co.uk) (I don't think they sell to the US so thats where I'd come in)
*AWright
*IXL
*Reg Cooper
*Rodgers

I'd just like feedback on the sort of stuff that I might be able to sell

Rodgers

would all be good choices.


If you go to: www.worldknives.com and look under sheffield. The slip joints there, particulary the stag and bone pocket knives would be quite popular. These can be bought here, but it would be good to have more choices. If I were you, I would post this in the traditional forum. You would have a better response.
