2011: The beginning
Over drinks at The Wolseley, in London's Piccadilly, two friends discuss the uninspired task of regular wet shaving and of a lack of genuine quality razors to make shaving once again, an exciting self-indulgent treat.
The days of lathering up a shaving brush with luxury shaving cream, loading a double edge blade into a 3-piece safety razor and applauding hand crafted shaving implements seem all but forgotten in the efficient-driven age of electric shavers and disposable multi-blade razors.
Surely, the time is right to introduce high-end British made razors to the shaving landscape?
There and then, a brand name was conceived. Derived from two favoured drinking establishments in London's bustling West End — The Oscar Wilde bar at the Café Royal, Mayfair and The White Harte in Drury Lane.
