Simon Maillet - The Sheffield Seven

It is our absolute pleasure to introduce the "Sheffield Seven" - an extremely limited run of just 7 pairs of knives hand forged by Sheffield based French blacksmith Simon Maillet for exclusively for us. 

Sheffield is a historic knife, cutlery and tool making city and the name "Sheffield Steel" is known around the world and so when we approached Simon to commission a set of knives, we wanted to make a limited run of 7 to tie in with the seven hills the city of Sheffield is built on and to forge blades that use materials in the cladding and handles that have their origins within the city and so when you use these sensational knives, you're enjoying a Japanese style blade made with a tribute to the local skills of Sheffield artisans too.
