Brookes & Crookes was never amongst the largest cutlery factories in Sheffield - in the late 19th century, the number of hands was not much more than 150 - but what Brookes & Crookes lacked in size, it made up for in quality, with its "Bell" trademark soon becoming a badge of excellence. In Business from 1858 to 1947.From the tang stamp I’d date the knife from the late 19th. Century. Main blade is back locked and features a pump to release it from the locked open position.
