What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Based on your feedback and suggestions we have made a few changes and improvements to the original Occam's Razor.  We call it...

Occam's Razor Enhanced Nano - O.R.E.N.

Here it is...

We have skeletonized the handle.  This brings in more in line with the original vision and reduces overall weight.

New Enhanced Nano Razor.

Original Design.

We also reduced the comb with by 50%.  This makes it easier to shave tight places like, your upper lip.

Occam's Razor was designed to simplify your life and your shaving. We have taken the finest blades that barbers and beauticians use and brought them home to you. Now you can enjoy a barber or salon quality shave at home.

More blades is not the answer to a better, closer shave. Anyone who has had a shave by a professional barber knows this. There is a reason the professionals only use one blade.

  • Easy blade loading and extraction without exposure to blade cutting edge. 
  • Adjustable blades for skin types and facial hair types. 
  • Easy cleaning and anti-clog design. 
  • No more skin irritation, razor burn or razor bumps. 
  • Stainless Steel Lifetime Construction. Lifetime Warranty.

We have 3 colors to pick from.  Each with silver highlights.

  • Classic Brushed Stainless Steel
  • Tactical Black
  • Forever Gold

These images represent what the final Razors will look like.

  • Multi-Blade cartridge razors create ingrown hairs and razor bumps. 
  • High Costs for replacement cartridges. 
  • Lowest quality of shave with some of the highest pricing per blade. 
  • Low integrity gimmicks like vibrating heads and useless ball "technology".
  • Expensive upfront and expensive to maintain heads properly. 
  • Loads of irritation (requiring a month or more for you skin to get "accustomed" to the abuse). 
  • Typically a dry or near dry shave. 
  • Hair is cut unevenly creating ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
  • Limited options and adjustments. 
  • Same issues as the Cartridge Razors above just typically harder to return, cancel or get what you want.
  • Intimidating un-packaging of razor and no protective dispensing system. 
  • Exposure to 2 blade edges when changing blade. Easily clogs, hard to wash out and harder to keep clean without serious maintenance. Lot's of moving parts to gum-up or fail. 
  • Have to twist to open and close or un-assemble razor to change blade. 
  • Have to purchase another container to store sharp used blades.

How Much Money Can I Save?

Two billion disposable razor blades per year are used and thrown away… Additionally, shaving gel creates several other problems. Their metal cans are often refused by recycling plants as they are under pressure. These cans also may contain polluting chemicals and gasses such as aerosol, propane, butane, isobutane and many others.

It is our goal to change the way you shave. You and your household can make a difference in landfill shaving waste, save money, get a better shave and make a real difference. How you ask? What is the answer?

The Benefit of a Single Blade Razor over Multi Blade Razor

A multiple blade razor will "lift and cut" the hair, dropping the stubble below the surface of the skin and causing ingrown hairs.

A single blade will cut the hair flush with the surface of the skin, allowing it to regrow naturally.

Simplify your shave:

Shaving doesn't need to be complicated. Unlike the multi-blade cartridge contraptions you find at your local drug store, the Occam Razor was designed to be elegant and simple to use. Our razor utilizes a modern design with functionality to simplify shaving. Thousands of hours have been put into designing and prototyping the Occam Razor. We have shaved with hundreds of other razors currently on the market (even some that don't exist anymore) and have brought only the best features to the Occam Razor.

Here is some of what the Occam Razor improves upon.

1 - Safety. Reduces the risk in handling the actual razor blade. We designed an insertion and extraction tool.

2 - Keeping the lines. One of our biggest issues with cartridge and safety razors is the distance from the cutting edge to the side of the razor. This design minimizes that distance allowing you to keep tight lines for your beard or mustache.

3 - Clean and sanitary. We designed this razor for minimal clogging. Even a thick stubble will easily wash out. Un-like cartridge or double edge razors this simply complex design allows for a lifetime of near maintenance free shaving. No moving parts to clog or fail.

4 - Durability. Made from Stainless Steel, this razor will last you a lifetime.

5 - Skin and Stubble Types - This razor was designed to work with multiple Feather Professional Blades allowing for sensitive skin or heavy stubble.

Thank you for reading and watching about our razor. Thank you to everyone who helped make our last 2 Kickstarter's Successful. We know you will love the O.R.E.N. razor.

Risks and challenges

We have added an extra 30 days into our manufacturing time to account for the unknown. We really hope that we won't need to use this and will ship ahead of schedule.
