We read with interest the feature by Vin Malone in The Star on Saturday.
It is a fascinating piece about one of Sheffield’s most famous companies and the family of business people who ran it.
The article seems to suggest that Rodgers ended in 1975.
We acquired Rodgers in 1986 and continue to make high quality pocket knives and fixed blade knives here in Sheffield.
We employ some of the city’s finest cutlers and our Rodgers knives are exported all over the world.
We are selling well and are actually presently looking for more skilled cutlers to join our team.
You can see more about our products on our website http://www.eggintongroup.co.uk/brands/joseph-rodgers.html and some of our finest handmade knives are available for sale on our e-commerce site www.sheffieldcollectableknives.com
Films of our cutlers at work can be seen at this link http://www.sheffieldcollectableknives.com/films
We hope you will be interested to hear that this famous old Sheffield name is still very much alive today.
