This range of knives are the products of a precision knife maker whose handling of materials especially stag and buffalo is of a very high quality. I believe that if you had a chose a Sheffield knife maker as producing the best knives I would chose Michael Harrison. He produces a range of bushcraft knives which are the same knives to the same specification as used on a famous survival television programme. Michael is a 4th generation cutler who has inherited the skills for which Sheffield was and still is famous. The buffalo knife  handles in particular vary considerably in colour and we cannot provide a particular tone for customers selecting those items but they are all of the same quality. Premier Sheffield craftsman ship and it’s best and preserving the traditional knife shapes. Michael has taken of the business of  A. Wright & Son Ltd.

This is a close up of the fine tones you will get on a Lambsfoot bladed buffalo handled blade. You can click on the picture to see this knife. The pruning and other gardening knives are good sturdy tools made in the traditional way with brass fittings and carbon steel blades. The handles are made of snakewood, ebony, rosewood and buffalo each with a distinctive patina and of course are a pleasure to own. The ebony handled knives provide a sharp elegant contrast to the brass fittings. On all our pages you can look at the links on the bottom of the page or simply scroll through the pages using the large numbers at the top of each page. A new handle material is the Ox which is only available on one of the pruners. Ox horn is translucent and adds depth to the colour. Ox horn is a superb artistic material for the pocket knife handles but because of it’s limited supply and difficulty in working it is only available on one knife type.

You can pay by Paypal which you can use even if you are not a member and the advantage of Paypal is we do not see your credit card details or store your personal details on our computer. Each manufacturer makes knives distinctive to them and you will see on some of Michael’s knives a curved handle for easy grip. If you have any questions you can just give us a ring and we ship these knives to most countries. We are not registered for VAT so usually we are cheaper than some of our competitors.

You buy a knife or pair of scissors to suit every purpose with different blade types to suit different tasks. From handy knives for general use to the precise blade types for different of gardening jobs and each knife or pair of scissors is British made keeping alive a long tradition of Sheffield knife making.
