The Company came to Sheffield in 1910 as the European subsidiary of a US razor blade manufacturer to manufacture the revolutionary Durham Duplex safety razor system, which is where the unusual name comes from.
Today Durham Duplex is a family owned business specialising in the manufacture of industrial blades, machines knives and safety hand knives for use in the food processing, packaging, converting, re-cycling and construction industries. The company operates globally with subsidiaries in Europe and Asia and can deliver a cutting edge solution anywhere in the world.
It still sells the original Duplex blade which, now made with a PVD coating, is used for slitting rather than shaving but remains razor sharp.
