HISTORY:
Wade & Butcher, Sheffield.

Wade and Butcher was a tradename of the W & S Butcher Co. Brothers William & Samuel Butcher
started the company in Sheffield in the 1820s. Not too long after they had a partner named Robert
Wade who was the New York based importer of W & S Butcher knifes for the US. This was one of the
main markets for the company's goods prior to the introduction of the McKinley tarifs of 1891. Not
all W & S B knives are marked Wade and Butcher. In 1921 the American company Durham-Duplex bought
W & S B and used it for the production of their safety razors as well as other forms of cutlery.
W & S Butcher ceased production in Sheffield in 1959.
