Richards of Sheffield: In 1930, the Richartz brothers, who hailed from Solingen (Germany), opened what would be the largest cutlery factory in Sheffield.

Before WWII, they anglicized their name to “Richards,” which you can see engraved on the scissors next to the rivet (above). The Imperial Knife Company in America bought them out in 1977, but the plant closed about ten years later.
