THE BARON SHAVE KIT - Remastering The Wet Shave

$50,838

Switching from a cheap cartridge razor to a Baron Razor is like switching from a Honda to a Ferrari. There is a noticeable difference between holding a sturdy piece of stainless steel in your hand opposed to a piece of disposable plastic. A Baron Razor is a precision machine.

The safety razor and the timeless ritual that ensures a perfect shave every time has fallen into obscurity over the last century. The advent of the plastic cartridge razor that promises more blades are better has prevented us from getting the best shave possible, while also convincing us to pay an exorbitant price. Most people today shave with cartridge razors simply because it's the only option at the grocery store.

The Baron Shave Kit is a remastering of the classic wet shave with a modern look and feel. We borrowed concepts from a proven, hundred-year-old design and then added our own unique features and innovations to make Baron a superior shaving experience.

The kit includes a year's worth of blades and shave soap, a premium razor and brush, and a case/stand combo that is the first of its kind. It's an investment that pays off with great shaves, useful functions, and a unique style.

The Baron Shave Kit is designed for both travel and home use. We're travelers and wanted a simple way to take all our shaving tools with us anywhere. The Baron case includes a unique brush and razor stand as well as an integrated soap dish and extra blade storage. Everything easily screws together for a tight and secure seal, making the whole kit ultra-portable.

Shaving with Baron, you'll not only have more control over the quality of your shave but also your wallet! Although the upfront cost to start shaving with Baron is higher than a cartridge razor, once you have the kit, replacement blades only cost around 20 cents each instead of 4 dollars per cartridge. This savings adds up quickly and Baron typically pays for itself within the first year. All savings after that is money in your pocket! The replacement blades are also available in many makes, allowing you to finally find the perfect blade for your face.

Ingrown hairs are a result of improper shaving products, such as multi-blade razors. These razors are designed to pull the hairs away from your face to cut them below the skin line. When they grow back, the hairs can curl under the skin causing ingrown hairs.

The Baron Razor cuts your hair to the same level as your skin, preventing ingrown hairs from occurring. It is crafted from stainless steel and finished in an extremely durable matte-black coating. This razor features both an open and closed comb for improved versatility.

Shaving with a brush creates a thick lather that helps hydrate and soften your beard before each shave. The Baron Brush uses premium quality synthetic fibers that offer superior performance and durability over animal hairs.

Odds are you've probably been using shaving cream from a can your entire life. These multicolored, chemical-laced shaving creams irritate the skin causing razor burn and bumps. Traditional shaving soaps and creams are made from natural ingredients you can pronounce, with moisturizers and nutrients that nourish your skin.

The Baron Shave Kit has a small footprint that fits well on any counter. It is constructed from a durable, impact resistant polymer and keeps all your gear safe and organized. To access your tools, simply unscrew the protective case from the stand and soap dish.

We designed Baron to last a lifetime, and it will. We took great care to develop an ideal balance of form and function. It delivers a perfect shave every time and also looks great sitting on your bathroom counter.

Replacing your cartridge razor with a Baron Razor is an investment that pays off with more than just better shaves. Below are a few of the many reasons why Baron offers a superior shave and value.

SAVE MONEY: Not only will you have the best shaves of your life, but over time you'll save money in the process. Genius, we know.

BETTER SHAVES: The Baron Razor utilizes a high quality double-edged stainless steel blade that outperforms most cartridge razors. More blades does not equal better shaves.

CRAFTSMANSHIP: The Baron Shave Kit is constructed from premium materials and designed to last a lifetime. Each component is precision machined or molded with optimum performance, ergonomics, and durability in mind.

INNOVATIVE: Our Stand + Case enables you to store and protect your shaving tools in a compact minimalist container. The Baron Razor features both an open and a closed comb for incredible versatility.

UNIQUE: Shave with style and stand out! The Baron Shave Kit is the first and only of its kind.

GREEN: No disposable plastic junk to throw away. Shaving with a safety razor produces less waste than cartridge razors. Instead of throwing away non-biodegradable plastic cartridges and aerosol canisters, the only waste is a recyclable stainless steel blade.

RITUAL: The ritual itself is reason enough to make the change to Baron. Happy Shaving!

We're a small team of artists, designers, and engineers devoted to developing new and innovative products.

Our passion for The Baron Shave Project stems from our own experience with shaving and safety razors. We have obsessed over every design detail, producing numerous prototypes over the last year, ultimately arriving at our current design. We have arranged production with our manufacturing partners and are excited to begin the next phase of our project. We have a clear vision for Baron and all we need is your support to bring it to life!

Risks and challenges

Getting a new product to market takes a lot of work. It can be a difficult process and unfortunately delays sometimes happen due to unforeseen circumstances. Luckily, this isn't our first project and we already have experience in this field. We promise to do our best to make sure that everything is done efficiently and effectively. Our design models have been inspected and approved by our manufacturing partners and our production timeline has been established. We are excited to bring Baron to life. Thank you for your support!
