Sheffield Defence - Protection

Sheffield has long been synonymous with quality and therefore subject to attention by counterfeiters.  This protection is still required and the Company is periodically engaged in actions to prevent abusive use of the name Sheffield. 

The Use of 'SHEFFIELD' in a Company Name


The name Sheffield is protected and the Cutlers’ Company continues to act on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business in the  approval of the use of the word ’Sheffield’ in any business name or title.  In practical terms, this means that anyone wishing to use the name Sheffield when registering a Company has therefore to seek a letter of non objection from us before it can be registered at Companies House.
