Darts, Dart Boards and Darts Accessories Made in the UK

If you’re a budding Bristow buy British made darts…

Harrows Darts is the world’s leading and most widely distributed darts brand and the only major darts brand maintaining production in England. If buying Harrows darts accessories and such items please check these are UK made, as I am not sure for some products – http://www.harrows-darts.com*

Bulls Eye Darts are all made in the UK. Available on their website.  I note the website / company are currently for sale and I assume from this that their darts are manufactured for them as no mention is made of their production facilities (elsewhere they also talk about their manufacturers; which confirms this). In their FAQs it says “Are your darts made in the UK? Yes all our darts are professionally engineered in the UK using the finest products” – http://www.bullseyedarts.co.uk

As far as I know Bulls Eye Darts are unconnected with Bullseye, the 80s TV game show with Jim Bowen and Bully.

There is a possibility that some Target darts are made in the UK, as I have read on the net that they have production facilities in China and the UK. I have written to the company to clarify this, as their About and FAQ parts of their website do not work, but have had no response. The About section of their website is now working, but they give no county of origin information. I have seen a photograph on the web that shows a packet of Target darts as having been made in China, so do check before buying – http://www.target-darts.co.uk

Winmau darts and dart boards are made in Kenya. They do not giving any information about country of manufacture on their website. Winmau are owned by Nodor who also do not give any information about country of manufacture on their website and presumably all their manufacturing is also abroad. The little Union flag on their logo is therefore misleading.

Unicorn darts and dart boards are made in China. I understand the company moved production to China in 1999.

Datadart don’t give any country of origin information about their darts or darts accessories on their website (which suggests they are foreign made), but it would be worth checking with them just in case they are made in the UK. I have seen a couple of articles on the web suggesting they are.

Mitchell Sydney Swans Afl Team Darts are designed in Australia and made in England. The packaging says Made in England. That’s about all I know about these darts (I found them on eBay and on a website called Mal Atwell).

Does anyone know of any other British made darts please?  Or British made dart boards?  Or British made darts accessories?
