About Bearded Lady Shave

Using a safety razor changed how I approach my workday. In fact, it changed my outlook so much that I started Bearded Lady Shave Company. With our shaving products, I want to transform the working man’s morning routine from a chore into revered time.

I have to shave for my job, and before I started using a safety razor, I considered it a burden. It wasn’t something I enjoyed, and if there were any way I could avoid it, I would. But when I made the switch from disposable razors to safety razors, my outlook on shaving took a complete 180.

My whole morning routine became a ritual I enjoyed, rather than despised. And now, I want to share that joy of wet shaving with you. In addition to creating Bearded Lady Shave Company, I also started a YouTube channel to help people navigate their obstacles in wet shaving.

Currently, Bearded Lady Shave Company makes pre-shave oils and post-shave serums in three scents: eucalyptus, sandalwood, and peppermint. I found that these two items truly transformed my shave, in addition to a good razor.

And with this 3D printed razor, I want to give you the best shave experience possible.

About the Razor

We want this razor to be a durable, affordable double edge razor for any working man who wants to elevate his morning routine.

After launching the Bearded Lady Shave Company, I reached out to Mayur Patel, an artisan shave enthusiast and 3D printer designer. I wanted a reversible razor that would appeal to everyone on the wet shaving spectrum.

This razor design accommodates all levels of shaving. The least aggressive base plate is specifically designed for first time wet shavers with little to no learning curve, while the other three base plates range from mildly aggressive to very aggressive. These give the intermediate to experienced wet shaver the flexibility and control to achieve the best shave possible.

After a year of extensive collaboration and testing, we developed the Nomad. All of the research and development is complete, and now we need your help to get these razors to production.  We’re finally in the last stretch to bring it to market!

Features of our 3D printed razor:

  •  Sturdy: this razor can withstand the rigors of constant travel, including moisture that may deteriorate and damage cartridge and metal double edge razors 

  •  Environmentally friendly: a double edge razor uses biodegradable blades unlike cartridge razors, and 3D printing creates little to no waste during production

  •  Affordable: with the different base plates, you get 4 razors for less than $30 (comparable reversible razors cost around $100)

  •  Best material: the components of the razor are designed from materials that will perform best under all conditions, including regular daily use

About Our Products

Our pre-shave oil and post-shave serum elevate your morning routine with great fragrances and quality ingredients.

Pre-shave oil stimulates your beard so that the razor can trim the hairs efficiently. It also adds a barrier of moisture between your face and the soap, which tends to leave your skin a bit try.

Post-shave serum soothes your face after your shave is complete and adds healthy oils back into your skin. Using post-shave serum also helps to prevent shave irritation.

How the Funds Will Be Used

With a successful Kickstarter, we can place the first order of 3D printed razors, plus the packaging. Once the razors are finished and received, we will ship the orders to YOU, our backers! We expect the razors to ship in Winter 2019.

We decided to keep our goal lower than necessary so that we have a better chance to meet it. If we can raise at least $3,000, that covers half of the cost to place an order for the razors.

Technically, we could make the razors to order, but that would mean each razor would cost the customer $50 - and to us, that defeats the purpose of doing this. By placing a large order, we can spread out the manufacturing and shipping costs, which means the razor costs you less as a customer.

Long Term Goals

I am an officer in the U.S. Army, and I continue to do this as my passion. After I retire from the military, I intend to run Bearded Lady Shave Company full time, from creating content to developing new products.

Ultimately, I want to foster a community of wet shaving enthusiasts around Bearded Lady Shave Company and shift the negative paradigm that men taking care of themselves reflects weakness rather than self-worth and character. 

Risks and challenges

While Bearded Lady Shave Company is already established, it’s not my full-time job (yet). Until then, I make myself as available as possible for all customer inquiries and fulfill orders in a timely fashion.

If I can at least meet my goal to cover the costs of some of the razors, I can place a large order that makes the purchase and production most efficient.
