Description

The I*XL trademark had originally been registered in 1787 to a W A Smith. 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 Wostenholm ever since. Blade length – 10 cm. Total length including handle – 21 cm. This knife has a 10 ½ cm hardwood handle with a small brass cross guard and an ornate engraved brass pommel. The blade itself is engraved ‘I * XL with George Wolstenholm and Sons’ on a scroll with ‘Sheffield England’ beneath. The knife comes with A thick leather sheath with rear belt loop, which is in excellent condition too. The price includes U.K. delivery. ED 2487.
