Thomas Clipper – Another Razor Kickstarter!

Hot on the heels of Sharpologist’s coverage of the Rockwell razor and the Beluga razor comes the Thomas Clipper on Kickstarter.  The Thomas Clipper razor has a stainless steel handle with a chromed Nickel head.

Beluga Razor – Another Crowdfunded Project

[NOTE: A video review of this razor is coming shortly.  I will edit this post with the video when it is ready.] Who says double edge razors are boring?  Hot on the heels of Rockwell Razor’s astonishingly successful Kickstarter project–they raised over 10 times their pledge goal–comes another crowdfunding razor project, the Beluga razor.  The Beluga razor attempts to be “the best of both worlds” with a double edge razor (with a single edge exposed) that uses a pivoting head like a modern cartridge razor.  I was lucky enough to get to shave with the prototype a few times.

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.

kickstarter Project: Rockwell Razors

[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.

Executive Shaving Braveheart Razor

The Braveheart is the Executive Shaving Company’s Safety Razor.  They call it “a double edge safety razor that gets the job done with the minimum of fuss. Expect a slightly more aggressive shave than you get from a Muhle R89, Jagger 89 and Merkur closed comb safety razors.”
