Thomas Turner & Co Sheffield Multi-tool Sportsman’s Folder
Turner & Co made a large range of goods including table knives, saws, files
and edge tools. Like some of the other larger cutlery firms, it also produced
and forged its own crucible steel using imported Swedish bar iron. The company
supplied the Navy with open razors and exported its knives across the British
Colonies. In 1802 the Company was created and in 1805 Thomas Turner & Co
bought the previously registered trademark *Encore* (from their catalogue). The
firm's centenary was in 1902 - the year that Albert Hobson became Master Cutler
- and the company decided to publish an anniversary pamphlet.
