Cutlery Hospital

Part of the Chimo Group of Companies

Has your cutlery spent too long lying around in drawers when a little professional attention from the Cutlery Hospital could restore it to its original beauty?

These days, it is often far more cost effective to renovate these neglected family heirlooms rather than buying new cutlery, not to mention the sentimental value. That’s where Cutlery Hospital can help!

So send us your tired, old cutlery and we will repair, replate and refurbish it. The Cutlery Hospital has a tradition of manufacturing cutlery going right back to 1750, so over the years we have learned a thing or two about cutlery. These time honoured skills have been passed on to our current team of master-craftsmen, who have over 200+ years of experience between them.

10 reasons to use Cutlery Hospital

In fact now, thanks to the personal recommendations of many of our satisfied customers, we are now certainly one of Europe’s largest cutlery replating & restoration service. But we are striving to ensure it still remains a personal service as we are receiving repairs from countries all around the world.

Recently as it has become clear to us that the mining and refining of the metals used in the manufacture of new cutlery is extremely “energy intensive”. Therefore recycling better quality cutlery is a much more “eco-friendly” or “green” option. Add to that the sentimental value of restoring items that belonged to previous generations of your family and that have “a story to tell” – for example we refurbished some old Spanish silver that had escaped their civil war and then survived the Sheffield floods!!

If you want our experienced staff at the Cutlery Hospital to quote for some specialist work it is always best if we can actually see and handle the item – but for preliminary quotes you can send us digital photographs of the item (please add measurements). This is especially valid for overseas customers.

PLEASE NOTE – we will make every effort to offer an efficient  as possible service, but we feel we must mention that we can only offer this service at economical rates because we have the skilled craftsmen, who can do this work.   However, their main jobs are the production of our new products. We therefore, politely ask for your patience and understanding because without the main production orders this factory would not exist and then neither would Cutlery Hospital. This means that sometimes we cannot respond as quickly as you might like or expect and for this we apologise in advance, but we will do our best

RISK – We must politely advise that with repairing old cutlery there is always a slight risk that some unforeseen problem only comes to light when we start the repair/re-plating.  These occurrences are fortunately very rare, but it can happen and therefore all work has to be carried out at the owner’s risk, as we cannot replace pieces that can be 100+ years old and/or the pattern is no longer available.
