A history of family excellence
The company was originally formed in 1898 by two brothers Albert and Joseph Yates – and the original JY assay mark can be traced back to this date.
Originally crafting Caps and Ferrules to go onto Pearl Fish eaters that were popular at the time, they soon moved into making knives for the Sheffield Cutlery Industry.
Today, and carrying on the family tradition, we are bringing the history, legacy and tradition of classic silver craftsmanship to the modern market, and paying homage to its origins via our exciting new brand ‘Legacy Silver’.
Please enjoy the experience of our website and we look forward to hearing from you.
