Please note that all materials used to make these knives are genuine, not artificial. The only exception to this is the Bex handles (if supplied).
The knife blades are made from carbon steel and fold away safely for true pocket knife portability.
Carbon steel is not stainless steel so its needs a bit of extra attention. It can be kept bright and shiny with care. You should avoid leaving your knife to stand in a wet condition. Even the humidity in your house can tarnish the metal if not stored correctly. Certain corrosive liquids can cause staining e.g. if you use a knife to cut an apple, the acid in the apple juice will cause tarnishing. Even fingerprints can transfer moisture to the blade which might stain it. Always clean your knife after use, and store in a very dry location. Carbon steel has an advantage over normal stainless steel in that it can produce hard, sharper blades.
All of the knives come with Brass linings & nickel bolsters.
The Knife-Making Process
Pocket knife blades are cut from sheet steel and the blades are marked, nail-nicked and drilled prior to the hardening process. After hardening and tempering, the blades are given a polish and are sharpened ready for assembly of the parts: blades, springs, linings, bolsters, handles and rivets. More grinding, shaping and a final polish leaves us with the finished product. See this Video and How Knives Are Made for more details.
Each knife will be sent with a velvet pouch which looks good and which you may use to carry the knife in your pocket to protect the handle from scratches from keys and coins (There is an option to remove this).
Legal To Carry
The pocket knife blades' cutting edges measure between 2.3" and 3" inches in length for ease of carriage, storage and use (full blade length may be longer but includes the portion of the knife blade that forms part of the hinge inside the bolstered section; the cutting edge lengths will be shorter and within the legal permit to be carried by responsible persons under the age of 18).

I've picked up the knives today. Very pleased. They are so nice that at this price it feels like stealing.
I have no doubt that this is an A. Wright knife, steel, fit and finish can confirm it.
I'm so happy with it, is in my pocket and I've been whittling with it. It works like a charm.
Thanks a lot for everything! It's been a pleasure.
The knife arrived today. Just what I'd hoped it would be and I'm sure my son

"Thank you for the beautiful pocket knife, superb quality. Had I seen the feedback sooner I would have known what to expect. Clearly you have a reputation. Born and living in Sheffield, I'm proud of you guys, I love the fact you ship to USA and Australia and they obviously love it too. Its awesome to know somebody's still handcrafting Sheffield steel. I could go on and on about how satisfied I am. Keep it up guys, amazing work."

Just wanted to thank you it was a gift for my wife on our anniversary, and she loves it. Lovely to see such a well made product."

Thank you and keep up the good work!
"A fine example of craftsmanship."
"- a beautifully made and finished knife."
"The knives arrived last Friday. They are the best examples of knifemaking
I have ever seen."
Excellent service from your company and in particular your Mr Robert Day. Very helpful. I ordered an Arthur Wright pocket knife as a gift for a friend, received it this morning and it is excellent. Quality service matching a quality item. I will most certainly buy again. Please feel free to publish this on your customer feedback. Thank you.
"-a Rolls Royce of pocket knives."
"Just received the pocket knife and wanted to say how much I appreciate
the exquisite craftmanship and tradition, reflected in its beauty
combined with practical utility.
Thank you very much indeed."
We sent a number of A. Wright knives to a dealer in Australia and got back these comments:-
"Just a quick thank you for your prompt service, my order arrived
today. I am very impressed with the workmanship and robust appearance
of these beautiful pocket knives and I'm sure they will sell well.".
The knife arrived safely and I am very pleased with it. I expect to buy from you again!
Thank you so much. Received the pen knife today & I'm absolutely delighted with it.
Received ok. Ideal, sharp, easy to open and comfortable in hand.
Thanks for swift service.
I ordered my folding knife on Tuesday and it arrived two days later
on Thursday, so thanks for the prompt delivery but I also wanted to
say how pleased I am with it. It is well made and, for what is really
a simple tool, it looks and feels really good. Thanks.
Just to say that I received the pen knife I ordered from you today
and it is of excellent quality. I had one stolen from me which was
made specially for me by a Little Mester. I am so used to having a
small knife in my pocket that when I saw your site on the internet
I had my previous knife for over 50 years and I'm sure this will last
just as long.
So all strength to your elbow. I have a knife which will bring very
happy memories of teaching marvelous and ambitious Sheffield children.
Really pleased with the pocket knife.

"Just to let you know that I received my Arthur Wright penknife yesterday.
I am really pleased with it and although I expected a good knife its
quality has exceeded all expectations. I particularly like the polished
blade which looks almost too good to use! I will order one of Trevor's
(Ablett's) products as well as I sort of collect penknives,
but I do use them too! Can you give me a steer on the wait times please?
- e.g are there models with a quicker wait time? Kind regards, and
I am very happy for you to use my comments as an endorsement if it
"Thanks for the Arthur Wright single blade. It is excellent.

Arthur Wright in place of the T. Ablett. Thank you for an excellent
service." - SG, UK
My Arthur Wright knife arrived today. A farmer's knife with Buffalo
handle, so just a quick note to say thank you. I'm absolutly delighted
with it. I had originally ordered a Trevor Ablett penknife, but due
to the huge demands on Trevor's order book, and due to your reccomendation
I switched, so thank you to Arthur Wright this is a really special
It arrived today! I am extremely pleased with it, it is exactly what I was after and I know my dad will be very happy with it, too.
Thanks for all your help this past couple of weeks, I appreciate it.
Kind regards, GM
