Personally, I think Trevor Ablett is tryin' to score off the fact that he worked in Sheffield and cynical me suspects he's tryin' to make a name for himself before Stan Shaw retires.
As I'm sure you all know Stan is "The MAN" both Master Cultler and last remaining little mester - his book makes for fascinating reading!
The last time I spoke with Stan (about a year ago) - I did mention Trevor's knives.
Stan put me straight with the fact that he (Trevor) simply stamps out all the tools including the blades, very little is actually hand made, hand forged, hand hardened....well I think you get the picture. And as a result the quality speaks for itself...

I had a play with a few of his knives at the Sheffield Shop a few years ago.
In a word......DIRE!
But then again, almost all the knives they stocked were, if I'm honest - pretty poor in terms of precision and quality. Nothing like the quality of either Victorinox and Wenger.
But hey, that's my own personal view, each to their own.
