Razors and Other Shaving Related Products Made in the UK

British made shaving products…You’ll find many great British saving products listed below (as usual in no particular order).

Now that Gillette and Wilkinson Sword make their razors abroad a good alternative is a King of Shaves razor. Their Azor razor (pictured below) is very lightweight (great for travel). It takes a bit of getting used to if you usually use say a Mach 3 and you need to press a bit harder but it gives a good shave and is almost impossible to cut yourself with. The razor and the blades tend to be ever so slightly cheaper than Gillette too. King of Shaves razors are designed, assembled and packed in the UK (I think the blades are Japanese), so this is a bit of a compromise. I don’t think there are any totally UK made razors anymore. That said King of Shaves tell me that their handles are designed & manufactured in UK too, in Chesham, Bucks and the last razor I bought from King of Shaves says made in the UK on the packaging. Good to know. These are very good razors. As of May 2017 the Azors 4 and 5 have now been discontinued, with the Hyperglide to follow soon. The KOS5 is the replacement for the Hyperglide with an Azor replacement due.
