PASSION. PRIDE. PRECISION.

  • ABOUT US

    There are plenty of ways to describe the company we are today — committed, passionate, enduring and expert — but we are happy to let precision be what we’re best known for.


  • CUTTING EDGE,
    PRECISION BLADES

    Established in 1854, the Hardy name has always been associated with high quality products. The company has a long track record of excellence in providing quality knives for their customers; something they want to be able to promise to their customers too. Using Hardy blades, they know they can; our blades, made using carefully selected high grade steel, are designed to get the very highest quality finish and yield in the production of leather, as efficiently as possible.


  • MADE IN LIVERPOOL, UK

    Today, our factory is moments from the historic docks of Liverpool, UK. A city defined by its warmth, resilience and a proud manufacturing history, this location also allows us to effectively manage our exports, which account for 95% of our sales.


  • ACQUISITION BY ARKOTE

    In 2015, Hardy was acquired by renowned Sheffield knife makers, Arkote Ltd. With a vision to ensure that we continue to lead the way, this ownership is consolidating a reputation garnered over more than a century, and driving our evolution, with a focus on innovative technologies and sustainable manufacturing.


  • EXPERTS FOR MORE THAN 160 YEARS

    There are plenty of ways to describe the company we are today – committed, passionate, enduring and expert – but we are happy to let precision be what we’re best known for. It’s been that way for more than 160 years, and we never intend to let that change.
