Other Interesting Points - Wilkinson Sword was founded in London in 1772 by Henry Nock, their origins are in the manufacture of swords though they have also produced guns, bayonets, typewriters, gardening tools, scissors, motorcycles and shaving equipment. Wilkinson & Son entered the shaving market during the 1850’s selecting open razors manufactured by leading London makers for their customers. In the early 1890’s following their design and patenting of machinery to produce the perfect hollow ground edge to a blade, Wilkinson Sword Co Ltd (Incorporated in 1889) introduced ‘The Figaro’ open razor. Ten years later in 1903 Wilkinson patented their ‘Safety Shaver’, the success of the razor encouraged Wilkinson Sword Co Ltd to produce other razors and shaving ancillaries and over the next 50 years they made many razors and registered many designs and patents including the Bonded razor in 1970 (as shown) which was to revolutionise the shaving market...
