  1. I can’t help liking this knife, but I’m not sure why!Review by

    OK, lets start either the bad. The fit is no better than so-so. The name stamp on the ricasso is only half legible, but worst of all, it was butter-knife blunt! OK, it sharpens up easily enough, but honestly, is it that hard? After all, my equally handmade in Sheffield Taylor’s Eye Witness Barlow came razor sharp.

    On the plus side, it’s carbon steel, the horn is lovely and the filework on the backspring is superb. I do like this knife, but, for the cost, it should be much better finished and sharpened.

    Its not a custom, it s a traditional blade made in same place and same process as they did decades ago. Problem is we have been spoilt by Asian made factory produced excellent knives.

    Take it for what it is and the history that goes into it and remember your grandad having one when you were a kid and just get one its a piece of British handmade history.

    Cheers HH very happy with mine

  4. Excellent everyday knifeReview by

    My wife bought me the stag handled version for our anniversary, and my first impression was wow, what a great looking knife. Aged stag scales, brass liners, shiny bolsters, visually perfect. But then I thought, hold on, what about all those poor reviews about dodgy steel and poor edge retention? So I tried the edge on a few things, with limited success, although I did manage to take a lump out of my thumb. So the news is, boys and girls, the senator is not so good at doing the paper slicing thing, or the hair shaving thing, but is top at cutting meat. Of course, back in the day, when this kind of knife was designed, we didn't expect knives to be super-sharp combat survival tools, and if we remember that then the Arthur Wright Senator will not disappoint.

  5. very disapointedReview by
    Rating
    the fit and finish was terrible, the bolsters on on side of the knife stuck out a couple of mil further than the other, the blade grind was really bad, and the blade was warped toward the tip making sharpening virtually impossible. the blade was not centred when closed, the filework on the back looks like it was done by child. if this British craftsmanship then i'll stick to the china made knives that give good value for the money.
    on the plus side the stag handles are a dream, the back spring is nice and strong with a nice walk and talk.
    as usual hennies did their bit without fault, excellent delivery and service.

  6. Excellent, if you have realistic expectationsReview by
    Rating
    I received this knife (with stag scales) for father's day 2 years ago. It was exactly what I wanted, an old fashioned, classic gentleman's pocket knife with a lambsfoot blade. Quickly however I became soomewhat disappointed. It never seemed to hold an edge. I would sharpen and sharpen, and get it hair popping sharp, cut up an orange, and immediately the edge would be gone.

    I sent it back to Heinnie in despair and they asked the manufacturer to test the rockwell hardness. Arthur Wright were a bit vauge on the numbers (answering between 48 and 58 depending on the email) but nonetheless asserted that it was indeed normal for this particular knife. Heinnie (whose service was as always faultless) resharpened the blade for me and returned it to me without additional charge.

    Nonetheless, I was less than impressed with its edge retention. I threw it in a drawer and forgot about it. However, nearly a year later I lost my Victorinox Tinker daily carry. I wanted something as I was going out the house, so I grabbed the Arthur Wright. I'm glad I did. I discovered that if you actually use it, it works just fine. While it wont hold onto a hair popping edge for more than a few minutes really, it will retain a paper slicing edge for some time. This is plenty for most day to day applications. The soft steel means you can also get it back to this stage with just a few strokes on your sharpening tool of choice.

    This tool harkens back to a bigone age of knives - ones that were used and abused every day by people who knew how to sharpen them , so they didn't begrudge needing to do so often. I sharpen mine about once a fortnight. It opens letters, cuts paracord, opens packages etc. several times a day. One thing it did struggle with was heavy duty cable ties, but it mannaged it in the end even if it did need a little sharpen afterwards. A little wipe down with a polish cloth and the brass looks absolutely stunning as well. This is a very beautiful knife. The shininess of the brass is charmingly offset by the dark gray natural patina I've allowed the blade to develop. The blade is that dull gray everywhere except the edge, which is polished like a mirror due to my regular sharpenings. It looks very old school, which I love.

    I've been carrying it every day for about a year now and I love it. To offset the loss of some of my Swiss Army Knife functionality, I carry a Vic Classic on my keychain and a Swiss Champ in my bag - but the Arthur Wright is the only one I carry on my person now.

    I've come to the conclusion that you don't really NEED a hair popping sharp knife for EDC. I own a Spyderco UKPK which would provide me with that if I wanted it, but it's just so ugly and the Arthur Wright is so pretty. It also induces far less pants-wetting amongst the anti-knife types when they see it. It doesn't look "scary".

  7. Not BadReview by

    I'm not sure why Arthur Wright's call this a 'Senator', but it's a nice enough fancy Lambsfoot. Mine came with a lot of gaps between the spring and liners, which I find rather typical of Arthur Wright knives. The spring has some sharp edges as it's not straight. They're scraping the barrel-bottom for stag in Sheffield these days, but at least (unlike some examples being sold), this IS stag, albeit rather poor third-cut stag. Mine came with a nick out of the top of the blade, where it had been caught on the edge of the wheel or on a file or something. Not much of an edge, but the steel is generally good, and I'lll be surprised if it doesn't sharpen up OK. Very fast service from HH over the Xmas/New Year period, and a competitive price too I think.

  8. DisappointingReview by

    Spent a lot of time deciding which knife to go for but finally went for the Senator even though I had read some mixed reviews.

    The knife arrive promptly (thanks Heinnie). It didn't come in a box, just in a plastic bag which was a bit disappointing.

    My initial impression was very positive, this is a lovely looking knife. Fit and finish generally OK although there is a bit of scuffing on the back of the blade and the back spring doesn't quite line up with the liners when closed.

    It all went down hill when I tried to sharpen it. The blade wasn't very sharp so decided to touch it up on my Lansky turn box, the problem is that the edge angle is wider than 25 degrees so to cut a long story short, spent about 3 hours trying to get a sharp edge which culminated in using an Anysharp, My efforts have just resulted in making a mess of the edge and to be honest I can't be bothered messing about with it any more.

    As its pretty much unusable in its current state (partly my fault admittedly) I feel it was a waste of £45 and a Saturday afternoon, will probably stick to Rough Riders in future.

    Very pleased with this classic knife, going to take pride of place in my pocket knife collection. Well finished, good back spring and carbon steel blade which seems to be rare in pocket knives these days. Well worth the extra money. (Posted on )

    This little knife goes everywhere with me, it is one of the best pocket knives I have ever owned, just beaten by my old George Ibberson lock knife for holding an edge but as that is now illegal I use my Arthur Wright Buffalo handle knife for everyday carry and have done for just over a year.

  11. I have wanted…Review by

    I have wanted a knife in this style for some time now. When I looked at this one I fell in love. Blade is stiff but that's not the problem. The problem is the blade material out of the box. Mine wasn't sharp, it couldn't do the slice in paper trick. So I have been trying to get a nice edge on it with no success. If it had a Fallkniven blade it would be one of the best pocket knives on the market. (Posted on )
  12. Best UK Legal i own!Review by
    Rating
    Bought this to replace a ú60 Boker lock knife of the same size I've carried and used in my fishing tackle box for the last 10 years. This is too good to go into my fishing tackle box, it has now become my everyday carry knife of choice. Quality build and finish sets it apart from the rest of the cheaper range. Will not close or open easy, needs a firm push or pull to do either. The next best thing to my now non-legal lockers I used to use, and British too. Easy to sharpen, razor sharp out of the box.

    Brilliant little knife, especially if you're like me and have 'shiny knife syndrome'. Made in Sheffield England, hand carved pattern on the top edge of the knife. Top price, top product, top service. (Posted on )
