2015 was the year that marked C.Booth & Son's 150th anniversary.
A highly specialised shop, C. Booth & Son was a direct importer of American hickory butchers skewers and sold printers’ guillotine knives.
Booth’s was and still is very specialised in providing traditional services such as sharpening, grinding and repairing. The shop had developed a great reputation for providing these services in-house at the workshop in the back. Around the time the first shop photo had been taken these services were very common in most towns and cities, but the fact that we still provide the same services for our customers 150 years later is what makes us unique. We can still sharpen almost anything with a blade.
