Cutler's Company, Sheffield, England

My son has just started a maths degree at Sheffield Hallam University and one of the early faculty meetings was in "Cutler's Hall", so I helped him search it out, to find these arms prominently displayed. Apologies for the dreadful image quality, you can see it a little better in streetview, here: http://goo.gl/maps/ojhpC  

The city of Sheffield is famous for its fine steel cutlery, a heritage reflected in the name of its Ice Hockey team ("Steelers") and the nickname of its soccer team ("Blades"). The guild of Cutler's have arms recorded in Fox-Davies Book of Public Arms , P222-3:

CUTLERS' COMPANY (Sheffield). (Incorporated by Act of Parliament, 24 Jas. I., c. 31.) Argent, on a fess indented vert, between three pairs of swords in saltire proper, pommels and hilts sable, eight arrows interlaced saltirewise banded of the field between two garbs or. Crest—On a wreath of the colours, in front of an elephant's head couped or, two swords in saltire as in the arms. Motto—" Pour y parvenir a bon foi." [Granted College of Arms.]

I'm hoping to visit him on Friday and maybe get some better pictures!
