Joseph Rodgers

Joseph Rodgers & Sons maintained a stellar reputation in the 1800’s as a top knife maker in Sheffield, England. They invested heavily in state of the art production facilities and became one of the the largest of the Sheffield firms by the end of the 19th century. Their rival brand Geo Wostenholm IXL  also had a great reputation and they both worked hard to stay the cream of the Sheffield crop. Ironically, both brands are owned currently by a parent company, but are still produced in Sheffield and craftsmanship has remained high quality.
