01Jul Truefitt & Hill Sheffield Steel Razor
Sheffield — the city in Northern England synomynous with the manufacturing of stainless steel during the Industrial Revolution.
The city, it's innovation, skilled population and natural river networks made it an integral part of Britain’s global commercial dominance during the mid 18th Century. Sheffield excelled in the manufacturing of steel cutlery and blade production, exporting products made from local factories in the east of the city to all parts of the world.
Although the mid 20th Century bought an end to steel manufacturing on a large scale in Sheffield, today there are still a handful of businesses which honour the industrial past and still craft the finest quality stainless steel products from original workshops, employing descendants of families who owe much to Sheffield's industrial heritage.
At Wilde & Harte, we are proud to affiliate ourselves to these businesses with the manufacturing and finishing of our razor and shaving brush Collections — Our components are genuinely manufactured, polished and assembled in the 'Steel City'.
