Spear and Jackson – Hand tools and garden equipment

“If there is one word that people associate with Sheffield it is steel. The city, (then a mere town) was known for the production of knives in the 14th century, and by 1600 had become the main centre for cutlery manufacture in England. In the 1740s, a form of the crucible steel process was discovered that allowed the manufacture of better quality steel, and this innovation spurred the growth of Sheffield as an industrial town. It was not long after – in 1760 – when the foundations of one of the city’s best known firms, and one synonymous with steel; Spear & Jackson, were laid.”

“It was in this year that a draper named John Love and a Wakefield merchant, Alexander Spear, decided that steel offered a better living than cloth and went into business together. By 1814, the business had passed down to Alexander’s nephew John, who took on an apprentice – Sam Jackson – to learn ‘ye art, trade or mistery of sawmaking’. Sam’s first job was carrying blades from the forge to the grinding wheels and by 1830, a new partnership was formed – Spear & Jackson. Neill Tools, Spear & Jackson’s parent company, can meanwhile ‘only’ chart a history as far back as 1889, when James Neill, a successful accountant, turned to steelmaking and patented composite steel (steel-backed iron) for hacksaw blades. Registering the Eclipse trademark in 1909, Neill started making the world’s first composite steel hacksaw blades in 1911.”

“In fact, Charles Lindbergh was quoted saying he carried only “gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent® wrench and pliers” on his famous 1927 solo transatlantic flight.

He set up a blacksmith shop in a room behind a hardware store owned by Sidney Bushnell.”
