Unicorn

Established 1937

Founded in 1937 by Frank Lowy, Unicorn is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of dart equipment. Originally darts were sold from dump bins, all thrown in together, regardless of weight or style. Unicorn was the first to develop a precision made set of three darts, the Silver Comet darts (as pictured above). Over a quarter of a million sets have been sold to date and many of the original batch are still giving perfect service.

This would be the first of a long series of innovations. In 1949 Unicorn became the first company to sell darts classified by actual weight. To this day, Unicorn is the only company confident enough to guarantee weight accuracy to within 0.33% on most tungsten darts. Unicorn’s more contemporary darts look like this:
