Since 1948 I Grunwerg Ltd have proudly manufactured knives and scissors in the heart of Sheffield, the steel city and centre of cutlery production in the UK. Whilst the factory closed in the 1970’s the business moved to Rockingham Street, where it remained until 2020, designing and supplying cutlery and kitchen knives to the consumer market. Rockingham Forge takes history of Sheffield knife making and incorporates the materials and manufacturing techniques into modern designs.
Rockingham Forge Equilibrium is a heavy fully forged knife range with perfect balance and weight. Having tested the Equilibrium range of knives with CATRA sharpness testing equipment, the knives perform favourably against German brands of knives with much higher price points. Made from German steel 1.4116 and hardened to ~56 HRC, these knives are probably the best performance to value range that we sell.
