TWIN ceremonial swords, made as a Millennium commemoration of the links between Sheffield and the City of London, have been displayed together for the first time in over a decade.

The Sheffield Sword – which resides in London’s Mansion House – and the Millennium Sword – which can be seen in the Cutlers’ Hall – are identical and were commissioned by city businessman Doug Liversidge when he was Master Cutler in 1999.

Both bear the crest of the Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire and the special Millennium Hallmark, designed for use on precious metal products made at the turn of the century.

The swords were back in Sheffield for the Cutlers’ Company’s Forfeit Feast, presided over by the current Master Cutler, Doug Liversidge’s wife, Pam, and attended by the current Lord Mayor of London, Alderman David Wootton and London’s two Sheriffs.
