History;
George Wostenholm is possibly the most famous name in cutlery. Perhaps more than any other cutlery company, the history of Wostenholm is steeped in folklore.
Although Wostenholm was reputably formed in 1785, it took three generations and one name change for the company to really make a mark in Sheffield’s cutlery history. Originally the family name was spelt ‘Wolstenholme’ but, story has it that George Wostenholm the second found this name too long for smaller knives so he omitted the letters ‘l’ and ‘e’. The name has been spelt Wostenholm ever since. The second George Wostenholm also built the Rockingham Works (known locally as the Rockingham Wheel) in around 1810. Knives made in this factory and marked “Rockingham Works” are highly prized by knife collectors to this day.
In 1831, the famous I*XL trademark, which had first been registered in 1787, was assigned to Wostenholm. It was the third George Wostenholm who ensured that this trademark became arguably the world’s most illustrious and best loved knife brand.
