Stan Shaw Engraved Pen Knife

IMG_5571

Stan Shaw has been making knives by hand for over 75 years. Now 90 years old, he still works in his shop two days a week making knives the traditional way, by hand. “My knives are completely processed by hand, from sawing out the blades, springs and linings, to the finished product,” he says.

Trained under Ted Osbourne, Stan learned to make multi-bladed knives using expensive materials, such as mother of pearl, tortoiseshell and ivory. As the cutlery industry declined Stan learned how to do many of the jobs that would make a knife, such as forging, grinding and hafting. Traditionally these tasks were separate subdivisions of the cutlery trade, carried out by single person. This meant that many different cutlers were involved in the making of one knife. Stan Shaw is unique because he can make a knife from start to finish on his own.

In 1983, Stan went off on his own after working for such Sheffield greats as George Wostenholm, John Watts and John Clarke. In 2009 he moved his tools and workshop to the Kelham Island Museum. Stan has a waiting list of four years for his knives, which are highly prized by collectors.

When I spoke to Ray at the Tucson Knife show earlier this month, he allowed me to list a couple of his knives on the website. Little did I realize how well made the knives he gave me to consign were. After holding, photographing, and measuring them, I now want one for my own. You can bet I’m going to get one too!

His NDN integral knives are a pleasure to hold and use. Ray designed these knives for what he calls EDU (Every Day Use). Believe me, it is a knife that you would love to carry for everyday use, no mater if you’re out hiking, camping, boating or working.
