We're delighted to present the "Sheffield Seven" - an extremely limited run of just 7 pairs of petty and gyuto knives sold together and commissioned by us and made and finished entirely by hand in Simon's Sheffield workshop.
Please note: This set has now sold out and will never be available again due to the unique nature and combination of materials commissioned. To hear more about Simon's knives when we have them, please sign up to our newsletter.
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 an ultra 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.
These knives will be a stunning central point in any knife user or collectors kitchen!

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
