Out of humble beginnings in a simple workshop in the middle of Sheffield has evolved an influental, international company with over 65% of its production sold overseas.
Employees now regularly travel around the world demonstrating their products and are familiar sight at many national and international woodworking shows.
But Robert Sorby still has its roots close to the cutlers who were instrumental in the development of their home city.
Robert Sorby offers a unique variaty of products for woodcarving, woodturning and woodworking chisels.
Robert Sorby tools are produced in their own factory. The tools are specially produced for woodturners, carvers and woodworkers who understand the nuances of the craft.
The range of tools offered is unsurpassed with patterns availible for all applications and some which remain exclusive to Robert Sorby.
This level of quality is underpinned by scrupulous product testing which ensures each tool leaving the factory has been individually tested.
Robert Sorby are leaders in product innovation and design. Over the last few years they have introduced a wide selection of new products including the Turnmaster and The Pro Edge Ultimate sharpening System.
The business developed from a small workshop into the centre of sheffield, to one of the leading manufactures of its kind today. Just recently they have moved to new premises and they are looking forward to more updated production methods and quicker deliveries.
