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.

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 Installation

In the early years of the Company, the Election, Installation, Church Service and celebratory meal (which eventually became the Cutlers’ Feast,) all happened on the same day.
