Taylor's Eye Witness

Legendary Knifemakers Since 1838

The story starts in 1820 when John Taylor founded a small pocketknife & edge tools workshop in the very heart of Sheffield, the ancestral home of cutlery in Great Britain. As was normal back then, makers would seek the use of a symbol by which their products would be recognised, even by those unable to read. In 1838 Taylor was granted the "Eye Witness" trademark for his goods, accompanied by an illustration of an all-seeing eye, hence the Eye Witness name that exists to this day. As one of several remaining knife makers in Sheffield, Taylor’s Eye Witness is proud to continue the legacy of the ‘Little Mesters’ that gave birth to the Sheffield cutlery industry centuries ago. Over 180 years’ experience has given Taylor’s Eye Witness the edge when it comes to product development, continually designing and developing kitchenware products based on their customers’ needs. In addition to designing and manufacturing an extensive collection of kitchen knives, scissors, tableware and accessories, Taylor’s Eye Witness is proud to represent Kai, SKK, Veritable Sabatier and Sabatier Professional in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
