For more than 150 years knives are being produced by William Rodgers in Sheffield. By now the company belongs to the Egginton Group, a corporation of different knife makers from England. Since 1943, William Rodgers delivered the Fairbairn-Sykes Commando Dagger to the British military. Those knives have to fulfill strict requierements and go through numerous checks. The quality, durability and reliability of the knives manufactured by Rodgers has been growing ever since.
