Durham Duplex

The Company came to Sheffield in 1910 as a 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 selling globally and able to deliver a cutting edge anywhere in the world. It manufactures industrial blades, machines knives and safety hand knives for use in the packaging, converting, re-cycling and construction industries. 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.
