Shaving kit

Selected because it is a conundrum. Wardonia was the registered trademark of Thomas Ward and Sons Ltd, but as this firm manufactured cutlery and razors it is likely that the plastic parts were made elsewhere.

Shaving kit AIBDC : 006556SA That's a lot of kit for a shave. Whose idea was it?


Any thoughts on this? It claims to be made by, Wardonia, a firm specialising in cutlery and razors and certainly they sold it. But who designed and made the plastic parts? We need a comment to save it from being replaced by another object.
