    HISTORY

    Charles (Chas) Clements was a high end London Retailer of knives from approx. 1890 to the 1970s from my understanding Clements knives were made mostly in Sheffield and he sold a great variety. Perhaps familiar to many who collect military knives his WWI knuckle knives or trench knives were quite popular and those were made by Ibberson of Sheffield. Clements had multiple locations but the number was dramatically reduced by the 1920s.
