The third George in this family business acquired the cutlers mark ‘I*XL’ in 1826; the mark which made the company famous. Wostenholm specialised in knives and razors, dominating the American market with their products.
Eventually, the name and marks of George Wostenholm were bought by Egginton Brothers, who still make Sheffield cutlery using the Wostenholm I*XL mark today.
This is a really nice, good quality gentleman's pocket knife.
