History of Sollex: From razor blades to space technology 

In 1927, nineteen-year-old Herman Falk rebuilt his basement into a complete factory that made outstanding razor blades. Business flourished – as he made blades based on excellent manufacturing methods, grinding technology and steel qualities.

During the 50s, in connection with razors only becoming compatible with their own blades, many of Sweden's razor manufacturers went bankrupt. Herman instead chose to start manufacturing industrial razor blades through a special technique: double grinding and blue painting. More than sixty years later, double-grinded and blue-painted industrial razor blades are still one of our bestsellers. Sollex industrial razor blades are also an important reason why we have maintained a leading position as one of the two Swedish razor blade manufacturers that remain.

In the 60s, our pointed blade 900 was launched, which are used for precision inserts by hand. Ten years later came the hook blade. Thanks to this smart blade, floor layers still get unmatched opportunities to cut with less force, while the surface is protected.

1984 Elisabeth Falk took over as Sweden's sharpest woman and pioneered titanium coating of blade edges. Sollex ceramic coating, which was launched in the 90s, extends the blade's durability several times over, something that still saves valuable time in the plastics manufacturing industry.

In 2011, Sollex's construction knife became "best in test" in the magazine Byggnadsarbetaren and the following year we celebrated our 85th anniversary by launching the blades Sollex Pro and Sollex Pro Titan for construction workers.

Since 2010 Sollex is run by Johan Falk, the third generation Falk. Head office and warehouse are located in Malmö. We specialize in knives and industrial razor blades with different properties for varying purposes, as well as tools in hard metal.

When we develop our products, the user and process is our top priority. We are also inspired by space technology in the search for products that can not be worn down. By listening to our users, we can create outstanding products, made for real professionals. In the same way, we intend to continue working in the future.
