THE SINGLE EDGE | Your mornings deserve more.

The Single Edge is a completely reimagined version of the vintage safety razor, rebuilt from the ground up and designed for everyone.  We've created it because we believe that shaving is more than just a morning chore - and your razor should reflect that.

With the Single Edge, we've reimagined the entire shaving experience. We've combined a vintage, time-tested design with modern improvements to create a razor unlike any other. Whether you use modern day multi-blade razors or traditional safety razors, it will seriously transform your morning routine.

Unlike modern razors, the Single Edge uses a single, easily replaceable blade that gives a consistently smooth shave. And even though it looks different than most razors you're used to, we've designed it to be extremely familiar to use - right out of the box. Here's how:

Lather

Use any method you prefer. We recommend the traditional way - with a high-quality brush and shave soap.

Load

Our blades last up to 10 shaves - or more. But when it's time to change your blade, just pop one in with our unique blade magazine.

All other safety razors on the market today require you to unwrap thin, sharp blades and manually load them by hand. But with the Single Edge, you'll use our unique blade magazine to swap your blade quickly and safely.

Shave

The thought of using a single-bladed razor can be intimidating, but we've designed the Single Edge to be extremely easy and safe to use. We've completely eliminated the need to be concerned about cutting yourself. 

Fun fact: all three "actors" in our Kickstarter video were completely new to single-blade shaving. And each one picked it up in minutes.

Built to Last

Our company was founded on an unwavering commitment to supplying you with goods that are honestly constructed and built to last a lifetime. With that in mind, we fashioned the Single Edge using only the highest quality materials available. The entire razor is precision crafted using the finest grade stainless steel available and finished with a durable matte polish.

Adjustable

Every man is unique, and so is his beard. That's why we've created a razor that is adjustable to match your unique shaving needs. 

Think of it like the electric clippers at your barber shop - change the blade setting, and change how close you cut. Need an extra close shave today? Just use our aggressive setting - it allows you to mow down the thickest beard with ease. Just a trim? Use our mild setting. Once you shave with our customizable razor, you'll wonder why you ever did it any other way.

Clog Proof

Because the Single Edge only uses one blade, it's virtually impossible for it to clog with hair or shaving cream. It rinses clean every time!

Designed to Display

We're tired of neon green spaceship razors. So we designed one that not only works better, but looks better too. 

Despite what you've been told all these years, shaving with one blade really is better. It gives you just as close of a shave as your multi-bladed razor, but with much less irritation. It's simple, really - more blades means more friction, and friction irritates your skin. 

Less expensive

We're tired of paying too much for razor blades. Aren't you? Here's how our blade prices stack up to the competition. 

  • The Single Edge (Kickstarter price): $0.25 per blade
  • The Single Edge (post-Kickstarter price): $0.45 per blade 
  • Harry's: $2.00 per cartridge
  • Dollar Shave Club: $2.25 per cartridge
  • Fusion ProGlide: $4.88 per cartridge

Made in USA

Our blades are made by one of the only remaining blade manufacturers in the United States. They've been making razor blades since the early 1900's and know a thing or two about shaving.

Easy to buy refills. 

Every razor we ship comes with a magazine of TWENTY razor blades that will last you up to six months or even longer. And when it's time to refill your blades, you'll be able to come back to our website to buy them for dirt cheap.

These blades are NOT proprietary to our company, so you are not locked in to buying them from us. But we dare you to find them at a better price than ours.

No kidding. There are TWENTY blades in there.
No kidding. There are TWENTY blades in there.

Twice as Thick.

The blades used in our razor are known as "injector" razor blades. They have been in production for almost a century, and they're the best out there. They are comfort coated, stainless steel, and more than twice as thick as today's razor blades - giving you a more substantial, effortless shave.

Told you there were twenty blades.

Whether you're a frequent traveler or not, we've created a beautiful and functional travel case for the Single Edge that you can be proud to own. Made from premium Martexin waxed canvas and oil rubbed leather, the Single Edge case is durable, water-proof, and custom built for your razor.

Two stunning colors to choose from: Midnight Blue or Olive Green.

When we designed the Single Edge, we were ruthlessly dedicated to perfecting every single detail of your entire shaving experience. Here are some of the important results:

Two years ago, my best friend and I launched a website devoted to testing and reviewing men’s razors. We were tired of using expensive razors that irritated our skin, and believed there had to be a better way to shave. 

We tested dozens of razors, received thousands of comments from people all over the world, and became the number one Google-ranked website for razor reviews. Throughout all of this, I realized that not a single razor on the market fully lived up to my expectations. So I decided to do something about it.

Just a few of the Single Edge prototypes.

Over a year later, and dozens of prototypes in, I've created a razor that I'm finally proud to introduce to you, the Kickstarter community. I know that we're not the first to bring you a razor project, but I believe we're by far the most qualified. We're passionate about razors, and we have the experience and expertise to give you the best shave you'll ever find. Period.

When you back this Kickstarter, you're not just funding a pet project or one-time razor production run. You're funding the creation and launch of an exciting new company, built especially for you. Our company's first goal is to create a shaving experience unlike any you've had before, and our long term vision is even larger.

Our passion is simple - creating dependable, high-quality goods for everyday life that you can be proud to own. We're calling our company SUPPLY, in honor of this vision to supply you with meaningful goods that are honestly constructed and built to last. 

Assuming a successful Kickstarter, our aim is to deliver all rewards by the end of March 2016. We know this seems like a LONG time to wait, but we promise it will be worth it! We've been conservative in our estimates for production timeline. Most Kickstarter projects ship later than originally promised - our goal is to NOT be part of that statistic. 

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter project, there are certain risks and challenges we must overcome to produce a fantastic product for you. However, we believe none of these challenges are too difficult to overcome.

The first challenge is to refine and hone the design of the razor. Since this is a high-precision product, every fraction of an inch counts in our design. The next challenge is verifying manufacturing processes and capabilities are as planned. In other words, an amazing design does not necessarily translate into a manufacturable product. The final hurdle to overcome will be shipping and fulfillment of the final product. A lot of Kickstarter projects get tripped up at this point, so we have enlisted the help of the right software and resources to aid in fulfillment.
