The pocket knives are available with a choice of handles and blade types; Buffalo Horn, Ebony, Jigbone, Rosewood & Stag handles, Clippoint, Ettrick, Farmers, Lambfoot, Peach Pruner, Pruner & Spearpoint blades. Some are supplied with a double blade.

Arthur Wright's knives are very popular with sheep farmers, bushcraft enthusiasts, horticulturalist and any professionals wanting a carbon steel quality knife. All models of A. Wright folding knives are fitted with very strong back springs, which makes these knives ideal for work use.
All of the pocket knives have carbon steel blades and brass linings. These pocket knives show the true craftsmanship of the Sheffield knife maker.
All of the processes involved in knife making are done in-house. This includes blanking out the blades and springs, hardening and tempering the steel, assembly of the pieces and grinding and glazing the finished pieces. This is a way to ensure that quality is maintained to a high standard throughout every step.
All of the natural stag used is gathered from a sustainable source in the UK.
