Rutland cutlery, who was part of the Osbourne Tableware Group, was a blade grinding and polishing company located in Sheffield south Yorkshire.
It was due to celebrate 300 years of trading in late 2009 but was unexpectedly put into receivership in January 2009.
Six months earlier it was acquired by two local businessmen who had ambitious plans to put the company (better known as Nickel Blanks) back on its feet bringing all of its five subsidiaries together under one roof at Meadowhall Sheffield.
The site you see here was the Rutland Cutlery side of the group.
