The I*XL trademark had originally been registered in 1787 to a W A Smith of Sheffield. The mark books of The Company of Cutlers show I*XL being registered to Wostenholm’s in 1831. Originally the family name was spelt ‘Wolstenholme’ but, story has it that the second George Wolstenholme found this name too long for smaller knives so he omitted the letters ‘l’ and ‘e’. The name has been spelt Wolstenholm ever since. This knife is 26 cm in total including the stag grip. The blade is 13 ½ cm long and 2.7 cm wide from back to blade. The ricasso is engraved ‘I*XL’ and the blade is engraved ‘Geo Wolstenholm &Son – Sheffield England’. The grip has brass pins and a brass guard. The blade has feint pitting as does the tang and guard. This does not detract from what is a beautiful heavy knife. The knife comes with a thick leather tan coloured sheath. The price includes U.K. delivery. ED 2512.
