hms trincomalee Royal Navy frigate

The Trincomalee was built in the yards of the East India Company in Bombay. A British ship of the line needed 2,000 oaks and Britain was running out of oaks. Some ships were built of teak in India. Amongst those ships was the Trincomalee.


Was I to die at this moment frigates would be found stamped on my heart.

Admiral Lord Nelson 1798


The Trincomalee was launched in 1817 and our wood is teak from the original keel from the restoration. The ship is the oldest still floating British warship. The teak came from the forests of Malabar and hammered into the keel was a silver nail which according to Zoroastrian tradition was vital to the ships well being. Whilst we do not have the silver nail we do have one of the original pegs which kept the ship together.

These Sheffield made knives are a tribute to the centuries of Royal Navy tradition and are made in Sheffield in the centuries old way that knives have been made including knives for the Royal Navy. The blades on these knives are made to the patterns which have been developed over the centuries and the knives are classic examples of the Sheffield knife makers art and are made by one of the few remaining Master Sheffield cutlers.


The present Royal Navy traces it’s origins back to the early 16th century and is the oldest of the countries armed services. It’s known as the Senior Service. From our scarce collections of historic wood and metal we have a number of pieces of various kinds including our keyrings and commemorative coins set in some of this wood. Historic metal and wood is becoming increasingly hard to find and costs far more than it did a few years ago even when we find it.

IN PRODUCTION


remnants of history 350

Pieces of the past which are the remains of some truly historic events are incoporated into our products and add a touch of panache to our iterms. They are not easy to make and it’s especially hard to find the blanks into which they can be incorporated. They are only made in very small quantities.


celtic sgian dubh 350

The Sgian Dubh is a traditional and historic Scottish knife. Most Sgian Dubhs have no trace of any association with Scotland. You may as well wear a plastic camel from Dubai with your kilt - we have tried in various ways to preserve the heritage associated with the Sgian Dubh. Wood rather than plastic and Sheffield made in the traditional way.
