Introducing David Mellor Cutlery

We are delighted to present David Mellor Cutlery - a family-owned business that creates stainless steel cutlery, handmade to the highest standards in their UK-based factory.

David Mellor and Mud Australia share a design philosophy that well-designed and considered products should improve your life.

Corin, David Mellor's son and a designer-craftsman in his own right, carries on his father's legacy today with the Chelsea range. Handmade from 18/10 stainless steel, Chelsea nods to traditional 18th century cutlery, while also paying homage to his father's iconic designs.

The Chelsea range is now available online and at all Mud Australia stores globally.

Well-designed cutlery for children

Since its introduction in 1975, generations of children have enjoyed using David Mellor's Cutlery Set.

Ergonomically perfect for ages 2-10 and made with the same care as all David Mellor cutlery. The taper-ground knife is gently rounded, the wide fork is good for scooping and there is a practical general-purpose spoon.

About David Mellor

David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well-designed equipment can improve your life.

David Mellor's approach to design was always to some extent that of a craftsman, in his close involvement in materials and techniques and his insistence on the highest standards of environment and working conditions. All David Mellor buildings have been of special architectural merit. His original studio-workshop in Sheffield was designed in the 1960s by Patric Guest of Mayorcas & Guest and is now a listed building. In the 1970s David Mellor embarked on the restoration of a historic building, Broom Hall, in central Sheffield. The successful integration of the cutlery workshops received an Architectural Heritage Year Award.

The Round Building, David Mellor's cutlery factory in the Peak District National Park, was completed in 1990. Mellor collaborated with the architect Sir Michael Hopkins in evolving a design which is highly functional in a rural area of outstanding natural beauty. The Round Building has won numerous architectural awards.

The David Mellor Design Museum at Hathersage, opened in 2006 in another building purpose designed by Michael Hopkins. The David Mellor Design Museum covers the whole broad spectrum of David Mellor's work from tea spoons to traffic lights over the past half century. David Mellor retired in 2005 and passed away in 2009. His son Corin Mellor, an interior and product designer, is now Creative Director of the company.
