    Default Trevor Ablett Sheffield penknife maker's workshop

    I visited Trevor's workshop on Friday to do a bit of Christmas shopping and took some photos.

    Trevor and Reg Cooper bowie knife maker, they share a workshop.



    Most of Trevor's grinding and shaping is done on belts.



    Riveting over the brass pins that hold traditional Sheffield knives together.



    A typical production run in progress.

    I love Trevors pocket knives. I have a two bladed antler hanled model as my edc after I lost its rosewood predecesssor. They are all individual pieces but a bargain for what they are. And a prpoper piece of England too
