    thank you so much @Jack Black ! this is incredible history. I really appreciate you taking the time to re-upload the pictures. Some of the PDFs mentioned earlier are no longer available. Does anybody have a new link or a copy? I'd love to learn more about the old cutler's tools.

    Thank you :) Sorry to hear about the PDFs :( If you let me know which ones you're interested in, by quoting the particular post, I'll try to find an alternative source, and update everything :thumbsup:

    Just to lighten things up a bit and add a bit of levity. My parents have been gone for over 30 years, but when i was growing up there was a saying that i heard nearly everyday of my life. If not from my parents, from my Grandmother or Aunties and Uncles or even neighbors.
    " DON"T throw that out, it might come in useful one day ".:D:D:D:D:D:D.

    Some great-looking knives in this thread here :thumbsup:

    Thank you my friend, I'll try and find alternative sources for those :thumbsup:

    Edit - I'm very sorry, but while the first article is widely referenced on the net, all the links seem to be to the same source. The second article is not so commonly referenced, but again, there only seems to be one source for it. I owe Geoff Tweedale an email, so I'll bring it to his attention :thumbsup:

    thank you so much @Jack Black ! You are a legend in your own time.

    While I was digging around for those old links I came across this YouTube video of Grace Horne at Taylor's Eye Witness in Sheffield watching the use of the parser. Worth at least 1,000 words on the topic.

    Jack, those photos are not only a tribute to Stan but also to the hundreds or thousands of men who worked at making knives in Sheffield. John
