John Weiss & Son were London-based surgical instrument makers during the 1700s and 1800s. The company was founded in 1787 by John Weiss, an Austrian, whose skill as master cutler and instrument maker were soon widely acknowledged. He received much recognition, including Royal endorsement for his inventiveness and craftsmanship & was appointed “Razor Makers to the King” by William IV. John Weiss' original premises were at 42 Strand, London, and by 1836 at 62 Strand. By 1841 the business was styled John Weiss & Son.
