WE'VE Done It!

Backers,

Today is a GREAT day, because today we claim victory on a successful Kickstarter campaign! There were ups and downs - good times and hard times. Together we have persevered to accomplish something truly remarkable. Here are a few of the high points of what we've done together:

1. Delivered 800+ Single Edge razors to 27 countries around the world! That’s 250+ pounds of solid stainless steel to every continent on the planet (except Antartica). Don’t have yours yet? You will soon! 

2. Created the word’s only modern stainless steel injector razor, resurrecting a vintage design that dates back to World War I. 

3. Created the worlds most affordable stainless steel single edge razor. Full retail price is $75 - all other offerings the market are two to three times more expensive! 

4. Consistently delivered above and beyond our commitments to you. Throughout the campaign, we:

Improved our prototype design for usability, ergonomics, and weight (Kickstarter prototype in the background).

Finally, I’m excited to announce that through strict quality control procedures, we were able to significantly reduce the effects of a previously announced flaw with the blade loading mechanism!

But How Does it Shave?? 

The best part of all is already rolling in - YOUR feedback on your rewards. Here’s just a few of our favorite reviews received to date:

  • "I have over 30 razors and I would put this up there with my 3 favorites."
  • "The quality of the final product is remarkable and the overall Kickstarter experience has been wonderful. 5/5 stars."
  • "Very close shave with no nicks, cuts or razor burn. Three passes with no touch-up gave me an excellent shave."
  • "Best of all, this razor is clearly built to last. I will not be in the market for another razor for a very long time."

Having some trouble?

Email me! I have been able to successfully troubleshoot a few of you that had a bad first experience. Here are some important top tips from what I’ve learned:

Careful when you insert your blade!

There have been a few reports of bad blades, resulting in terrible shaves. This typically happens when you accidentally damage the blade during insertion. Are you having this problem? Check out the video below to learn how to insert and eject a blade:

No pressure!

Remember, do NOT apply pressure while you shave - allow the weight of the razor do the work for you. When shaving with the Single Edge, it will take 2 - 3 passes to reduce your stubble all the way. It’s normal! Don’t press to cut closer - come back for a second pass!

Find the sweet spot

Experiment with the angle at which you hold the razor to find the sweet spot. The head of the razor should be almost parallel with your skin.

But Where’s MY Razor?

If you haven’t yet received your reward, it could be due to a few reasons:

  • It’s on the way! You should have received a tracking number in your email. Didn’t get it? Let us know at hello@getsupply.com. 
  • You're on our list to receive a razor from our next production batch. We don’t yet have an ETA on the arrival of that batch, but we will keep you informed via email. We have NOT forgotten you! We promise!
  • We don’t have your address! Send it to us!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

We truly could not have accomplished all of this without YOU. We are forever indebted to our backers for making our vision become reality. We hope you have enjoyed this campaign as much as we have. Stay tuned! We have big plans for the future - and we hope you’ll join us.

      What's not to like about a well-run Kickstarter project which came in on time and delivered a superb product? This is now one of my favourite razors, and there's nothing I don't like about it. The Single Edge is a winner.

      I'm also extremely glad to have gotten on this kickstarter. I've sent recommendations to a bunch of friends for pre-orders. Honestly, this is a real "shut up and take my money" product. I've shelved a handful of rotation razors for the single edge.

      Like many precision instruments it's really difficult to tell the quality of this razor until it's actually in your hand.But then you can see and feel the quality workmanship and the functional elegance of this tool you will use day in and day out.This KS has been great and you have delivered a fantastic product in a timely manner.I'm glad I didn't miss this one.

      By far, the best Kickstarter Experience I've had to date. You delivered on everything, and more, that you promised. And delivered something I've been looking for ever since I shaved with my first injector from the 40's, a truly modern Injector. My hope is that this razor will be just as successful and 70 years time, these are turning up in Antique Shops across the nation like the Schicks do now. It's an heirloom quality product, so I see no reason why it shouldn't...

      Thank you for my best Kickstarter experience so far! The razor still needs some getting used to, but I'm sure that will happen. I am IMPRESSED by the soap and after shave. Awesome products!
