Provenance: After working for a number of the more illustrious Sheffield knife makers such as Ibbersons, Wostenholm, John Clarke and John Watts, the changing face of the Sheffield knife industry forced Stan Shaw to 'go it alone' in the early 1980's. By the 1990's he was amongst the most respected producers of exhibition knives, and being a one man band had a long waiting list for his products. Specialising in multi-blade pocket knives, mother of pearl scales are one of his particular favourites, and even has his own hallmark registered at the assay office.
