The Company wishes to express its deeply felt condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family, following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on Friday the 9th of April 2021. The Duke of Edinburgh was an Honorary Member of the Company since 1991 and had visited us on a number of occasions. He took a deep interest in our history and activities. He has been an example of service, dedication and values to us as a Company and to the Nation.
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.
