Hawley Tool Collection
Resource verified by SHCG editorial group
Host: Kelham Island Museum
The Hawley Collection is an internationally important material record of toolmaking, cutlery manufacture and silversmithing from Sheffield, together with complimentary material from Britain and the rest of the world.
This collection is unique in that it combines finished artefacts and work in progress to illustrate how things were made. Together with published catalogues, archival material, pictures, photographs, tapes and films, it records the development of many of Sheffield's manufacturing processes and products and the skills of the workers involved.
