About us

We combine science
and expertise

This is our story.
Thousands of years
in the making.

Using ancient blade-making techniques. With a 60-year legacy.
All backed by the latest technology and expertise.

This is Dorco, thousands of years in the making.

What does Dorco mean?
The name ‘DORCO’ combines three elements:

DO

‘DO’ from the first two letters of Dongyang (meaning "Orient") Light Metal Industries (our original company)

R

‘R’ from ‘razor’

CO

‘CO’ from ‘company’

DORCO was registered as a brand name in 1961
and it became our company name in 1977.

It all starts with
our incredible blades

For more than 60 years, Dorco has shaved the world using ancient techniques.
We honour tradition while crafting a growing range of sharp, strong, long-lasting blades.

But we don’t keep
reliving the past

We’re always reinvesting in research and development,
to bring you amazing blades.

And now comes
the next generation
in grooming

You can get advanced shaving technology and compatible refill
cartridges when you need them, delivered direct to your door.
And because we cut out the middleman, we pass the savings on to you.

It’s time to get closer

So we can get a better idea of your skin type and shaving style.
And together, we can create your best shaving experience.

Over 60 years of shaving expertise

We believe everyone should be able to look their best
every day – without having to pay a fortune.
