Ibberson Gravity Knife After British forces had captured numbers of the ''Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger-Messer'', the British government approached George Ibberson & Co. of Sheffield, England, a knife and cutlery manufacturer, and asked him to produce a British version of the German Luftwaffe gravity knife for the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and other clandestine warfare units. Ladd, James D., Melton, Keith, and Mason, Peter, ''Clandestine warfare: weapons and equipment of the SOE and OSS'', London: Blandford, ISBN 0-7137-1822-6, 9780713718225 (1988), p. 29: These British SOE gravity knives are NOT the same knives as the standard British Army soldier's and sailor's clasp pocketknife, which featured a short, thick marlinspike. Under the initial wartime contract, George Ibberson & Co. initially made 500 gravity knives for issue to the SOE (Special Operations Executive) and other special forces. Two other manufacturers, both of Sheffield, Yorkshire, produced between 1,200 and 1,500 knives during the war. These Sheffield gravity knives had smooth wood or textured plastic scales, but were otherwise identical in features and operation to the ''Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger-Messer'', with a locking gravity-deployed blade, takedown feature, and a folding rigging spike or awl. In the hands of British SOE agents, the Sheffield gravity knife was considered to be a secondary combat weapon. In addition to the knife blade, SOE close combat instructors found that the folding rigging spike was useful for silent elimination of sentries by opening the carotid artery on the neck. Thompson, Leroy, ''Survival Fighting Knives'', Paladin Press, ISBN 0-87364-347-X, 9780873643474 (1985), p. 76 Nearby Ford Hall was the home of the Reverend William Bagshaw, the 'Apostle of the Peak', after he was ejected from the vicarage on the Act of Uniformity (Act of Uniformity 1662) in 1662. John Bennet 1714-1759 , described as "one of John Wesley's most outstanding young preachers", was born at Chinley and lived at Lee End. S. R. Valentine, John Bennet & the Origins of Methodism and the Evangelical Revival in England, Scarecrow Press, NJ, 1997 Both Bennet, and his wife Grace Murray, are buried in the graveyard of nearby Chinley Chapel, a Nonconformist chapel built in 1716. The coming of the railways was the reason Chinley grew from the tiny hamlet it had been, and the village is actually named after its railway station, rather than the other way around. Previously the names Maynestonefield or Four Lanes End were used. Chinley railway station was once an important railway junction on the Midland Railway's Dore and Chinley line (Hope Valley line) and its London-bound extension through Millers Dale (Millers Dale railway station), and it was common to have to change trains in Chinley en route for Manchester, London or Sheffield. The station is now a single 'island' platform on the trans-Pennine line between Sheffield (Sheffield railway station) and Manchester Piccadilly (Manchester Piccadilly railway station). '''Totley''' is a suburb on the extreme southwest of the City of Sheffield (Sheffield), in South Yorkshire, England. Lying in the historic county boundaries (Historic counties of England) of Derbyshire, Totley was amalgamated into the city of Sheffield in 1935, and is today part of the Dore and Totley electoral ward in the city, though it remains close to the contemporary county boundary (Shire county) of Derbyshire. In 2005, the lock was partially restored as part of the planning gain required from the developers of the adjacent Bellamy Homes housing scheme. Three sets of new steel gates, manufactured in Sheffield by Mandall Engineering, were installed at a cost of £200,000, and a further £100,000 was spent on general improvements to the area and the access paths to the lock. This left the lock in good condition, but not operational, since the gates did not have balance beams, and the hydraulic operating mechanism was not included in the work.

Sheffield

'''Sheffield''' ( ), though some population figures, like those given at List of English cities by population, use just the urban core of the city and are therefore lower. and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up the Core Cities Group. Sheffield is the third largest (List of English districts by population) English district by population. The metropolitan population of Sheffield is 1,569,000

During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible (crucible steel) and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population during the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1843, becoming the ''City of Sheffield'' in 1893. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in traditional local industries during the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area.

The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment (Urban renewal) in Sheffield along with other British cities. Sheffield's gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £9.2 billion in 2007. The economy has experienced steady growth averaging around 5% annually, greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber. title Income & Wealth date 30 November 2007 publisher Sheffield City Council accessdate 7 July 2010 archiveurl http: web.archive.org web 20100521085049 http: www.sheffield.gov.uk your-city-council sheffield-facts-figures sheffield-economy income--wealth archivedate 21 May 2010
