Sheffield-made antique knives go under the hammer for almost £400k

1st August 2023

A collection of antique knives produced in Sheffield has sold at auction for almost double its original estimate.

Amassed over 40 years by David Hayden-Wright before his death in 2006, the collection had been expected to sell for £200,000, but reached £387,381.

Auctioneer Thomas Del Mar said the price reflected the "outstanding quality" of the pieces.
