Thomas Ward did not actually manufacture most of the components that went into its shaving kits, and items such as the handles, guards, boxes and even razor blade packets, were all brought in from outside companies. The company fell into difficulties in the 1970s with the introduction of cartridge system of replaceable safety razor blades, which soon overtook the old single and double edged safety razor blades.
