Oldest still floating British Naval Ship

Greetings from London. Given our travels are curtailed a bit we are working on some of the historic material we have. We have part of the keel of the Trincomalee from about 1820 which we are turning into the 3 blade Admirals knife. We have finally finished turning part of the Rolls Royce drive shaft of a Tornado jet into a pen holder. Our bit of R101 airship has been turned into keyrings but we still have a lot of it left which upsets my wife a bit. Still cluttering the place up is a large…See More

Greetings from the UK after a long lapse.

To commemorate fifty years since the moon landings we have produced a knife which incorporates a piece of one of the first V1's to come down in England. We only have a little of the metal and that's it and we have only made ten pocket knives. The links are at the bottom of our home page on Sheffield-gb.com See More
