Steve Worthington of BornSharp recently sent me an interesting link: Scruff Is In As Men Shave Less. I found it interesting not so much because it was about “scruff” but rather the numbers of people who shave. It got me to wondering how many of “us” (who shave with an “old school” kit of some kind) there are, and how big a market it might be to business.
You may remember a mention on Sharpologist a few months ago about Pacific Shaving’s Indiegogo campaign to develop a caffeinated shaving cream. Their project has come to fruition and they have just launched their cream. I was lucky enough to get in on the first batch.
Several people have pointed me to a recent Kickstarter project, RazorPOD. It proposes a device that extends razor blade life by keeping it dry between uses. I’m all for promoting shaving-related products so take a look at their information at the link.
