About Us

The Knife Angel is coming to Chester to raise awareness of knife crime across the country. The police are raising awareness to prevent knife crime in schools and places of education using the Knife Angel as a focus.  The Angel will be placed close to the west entrance of the cathedral.

The Knife Angel was created by the British Ironwork Centre, and sculptor Alfie Bradley, to illustrate the scale of the knife crime problem affecting the UK.

The 27 feet high sculpture is made from 100,000 bladed weapons collected in knife banks during police surrenders across the country.  Today, this stunning statue eloquently signifies the nation’s overwhelming intolerance to violence and aggression.
