At some point in our lives, we were once one of the two toddlers fighting in the backseat of our parent’s car. If you were an only child, then imagine you’re fighting with your childhood friend, the point still stands. My friends, for a century, for one hundred years, we’ve been witnessing the ongoing business equivalent of two toddlers fighting in the backseat of the car that is our face. As we’ve grown, many of us have evolved our shaving skills and honed them into the practices of using DE razors, or if you’re really brave, straight edge razors.

Update On Rockwell Razors

As I mentioned last week I was able to shave with the Rockwell Razor prototype.  I have a few more shaves with it under my belt now.

Rockwell Razors Follow Up

The Rockwell Razors Kickstarter project that we mentioned Wednesday seems to have been a hit with the wet shaving community.  The project met it’s initial funding goal within 24 hours (Kickstarter gives projects 28 days to meet their funding goal)!  We have been able to get some exclusive access to Rockwell.  Sharpologist co-founder Andy Tarnoff was able to sit down with one of Rockwell’s founders, and Mark (Mantic59) got his hands on a prototype razor.

[UPDATE: Rockwell Razors met their initial funding goal on it’s first day on Kickstarter!] Sharpologist likes to publicize shaving-related funding projects.  For example, we’ve previously showcased Dave’s Shower Shave and BornSharp.  Here’s a new one: Rockwell Razors.  Rockwell has some interesting attributes–an all stainless steel razor with a price point far below other stainless steel razors, and a set of reversible, interchangeable base plates.
