The Made in Sheffield brand is co-owned by the Company of Cutlers, the Sheffield City Council and the Chamber of Commerce. These were the three elements of the Sheffield Defence Committee when it began in the early 20th century.
The ‘Made in Sheffield’ mark was launched in 2005 and now has more than 200 licence holders.
It is in demand as a sign of quality which adds value to products.
The Yorkshire Film Archive has an amatuer film 'Made in 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.
