Aaron Hadfield, Sheffield 1838 looks just right to me. The duty mark is that of William IV - although Victoria was on the throne in 1838 it took a little while for the new duty mark with her head on to come into legal effect.

The armorial would have been that of an owner of the knife, probably the original purchaser. You might be able to work out the family name from Fairbairn's Crests.
