blade is a true Wharncliffe, thick and strong.
Wharncliffe blade is attributed to the design of Lord Wharncliffe who was the
patron of Joseph Rodgers & Sons in Sheffield in the early 1800s. The blade
was designed around 1832. To this time, most pocket knives had rather slender
blades. Tradition has it that Lord Wharncliffe wanted a small pocket knife with
a thick strong blade. The result was a knife that was not only a whittler
pocket knife, but one that could be really leant on hard without danger of it
breaking. The high arched back only adds to its strength. This type of blade
with a totally flat cutting edge is considered by many as one of the finest,
most practical and versatile designs for a pocket knife blade
