Welcome to the Website of
The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire

The Cutlers' Company was established by a parliamentary Act of Incorporation in 1624 and for almost four hundred years has sought to maintain the standards and quality of Sheffield manufactured cutlery and steel products and to promote the name of Sheffield.

As manufacturing in the region has changed over the centuries, so the Company reflects this by highlighting the innovation in the region as well as upholding Sheffield's proud heritage.

Filmed in 1954 by the Master Cutler WB Ibberson, the silent, black and white film shows the processes of forging, grinding and hafting in the Sheffield cutlery trade.  There is also a brief view of the inside of the Cutlers' Hall at the beginning and end of the film.

The Cutlers' Hall Open Day

The Open Day at the Cutlers' Hall on Saturday, 13 September was very successful, with almost 600 people visiting throughout the day.  This is the third year the Hall has been open and the change to a Saturday in September brought in more people than the previous two.  Visitors were able to wander round the Hall following a self-guided route, or on one of the short tours with the Archivist.  A cafe serving light refreshments and a stall selling Company souvenirs were also very successful.  A small display of items from the Company's archive was linked to a 10 minute on-screen presentation about the work of the Company during World War One.  The comments, made in the Visitors Book and praising the Open Day, were much appreciated by the Company and all the staff and helpers.

Tuesday, 1 October, 2013, the Master Cutler Elect, Tony Pedder was installed as Master Cutler. The Installation ceremony took place in the Old Banqueting Hall at the Cutlers' Hall and was followed by a service in the Cathedral Church of St Marie's, Sheffield.
