Stuart Mitchell is based at Portland Works where Harry Brearley and Robert F. Mosley made the world's first Stainless steel knives. This limited edition knife was made to celebrate the centenary of Brearley's discovery and is the 100th out of 100. It was presented to the Metalwork collection by the Little Sheffield Community Benefit Society at Portland Works. Once a cutlery factory, the works is now a creative hive of workshops and has an ongoing renovation programme. Tenents include steel forgers, gin distillers and musicians. The red brick building is one of the oldest examples of a working metal trades factory. Built in 1879, the forge where Stainless steel was originally produced is still in daily use.
