  • Note: Extract from Website:
    • "On 1st June 2007, Harrison Fisher and Co changed its name to Taylors Eye Witness Limited. The name makes life much simpler for customers, suppliers and ourselves as we focus on the development of the Taylors Eye Witness brand - high quality well designed products from the cutting edge experts.
    • Taylors Eye Witness was founded by John Taylor in the early years of the 19th Century. "Eye Witness" Trade mark was first registered in 1838 and has since become synonymous with the finest cutlery. The inspiration for the choice of "Eye Witness" as a trade mark is believed to be Shakespeare's line in Henry 1V - "No eye hath seen better". Today our products are sold in many countries across the world, often as private label programs for leading retailers."
