About John Wilson

The prestigious John Wilson name is a byword for perfection. For over three centuries, it has been the trusted choice of elite skaters around the world.

A heritage firm with a Royal pedigree, John Wilson has been crafting outstanding blades since England’s King William III requested a pair of skates in 1696. The company’s enduring reputation led Queen Victoria to request skates for herself and her husband, Prince Albert, in 1841. Today, John Wilson is still setting the standard for skaters worldwide.

For the past 50 years, John Wilson has been recognized throughout the industry as the preferred blade of champions, and has long been recommended by respected coaches at every level. This is because each John Wilson blade is precision-engineered to our exacting standards, combining elegance with rigorous stability to create a blade unmatched in performance.

Our craftsmen achieve the optimal balance between research, design, technology and quality hand-finishing. We use the latest techniques to laser-cut steel to an accuracy of a fraction of a millimetre. A meticulous six-stage tempering process and state-of-the-art finishing treatments ensure that our blades have the strength and flexibility that you need to perform at the very highest level.

Our blades, like our legacy, are built to last. That’s why John Wilson is the name champions turn to again and again.
