History:
Wilkinson & Son entered the shaving market during the 1850’s when their records show customers being supplied with specially selected open razors made for them by leading London makers.  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.  These razors were supplied in four blade widths and either singly (left), pairs, fours or seven, (one for every day of the week and etched with the day on the rounded top of the blade.)
Six. It was another ten years before Wilkinson patented their Safety Shaver, which was launched in 1903, winning a gold medal for excellence the following year.  The razor featured a number of revolutionary improvements to the safety razor such as Wilkinson’s ‘Patent Anti Friction Roller’ which, unlike the crude combs of other safety razors, gave a smooth rolling action over the face and fed the lather onto the cutting edge of the blade.
The success of the razor, which was sold singly and in larger sets with three, four or seven blades, encouraged Wilkinson Sword Co Ltd to produce other razors and shaving ancillaries.
With both Open and Safety Razors to cater for the two different markets, Wilkinson Sword now set out to improve and perfect their designs and in the next fifty years became leaders in an already fast moving shaving market.

This historical piece of wet shaving history was manufactured by the Wilkinson 
Sword Co. Ltd. (Incorporated in 1889) of England. It was manufactured 
between 1929-1952 during the time era when straight razor manufacturers were
competing with the newly released safety razors.

this wonderfully preserved condition.  The razor functions as perfect as it did decades ago; 
furthermore, it has maintained it's distingushed beauty.

sharpen the opposing side of the blade. Unscrewing the lower section of the handle “unlocks” it 
so the upper knurled section can be depressed and the top of the head can rotate to turn the
