Harry’s, the razor company, “was built out of respect” for things our modern world seems to have forgotten about: quality and skill. In their game of one-upmanship, companies constantly complicate a simple item like the men’s razor. As they do this, brands amplify the price. Harry’s goes the other way, reducing your cost per shave while enhancing quality.
Founded by Friends
Andy Katz-Mayfield and Jeff Raider went to college together and became friends. Since that time, they have traveled and worked in each other’s company, talking about razors. They both value the simplicity and integrity of a good product and a well-run company.

Quality at a Low Price
With a set of blades and one good handle, you can keep on shaving for days and pay less, even though Harry’s makes a better product than some cheap disposable razor. The company saves money selling via the internet, enabling Harry’s to honor their promise to be more affordable than you would imagine.
You can also purchase their products in many major retailers. I have personally seen them at Target, and I’m sure they are at other stores like WalMart, maybe even CVS, Walgreen’s, Wegmans etc.
They also care. More than 400 people are employed in various departments: craftsmen, engineers, designers, and chemists at the time of this writing, and they way they seem, to be growing, who knows how many there will be by the time you read this.
Every element of Harry’s razors is crafted; from the handle to the blade and even the shaving cream. This company, based in New York and Germany, employs the best materials and ingredients to show a man’s face the deepest respect because Harry’s was founded by men who know what a cheap razor can do.
When a company is successful, giving back is the only right thing to do. Harry’s doesn’t need reminding. They donate 1% of both profits and volunteer time to support charities. Their current partner is called City Year, a team that promotes students’ success right in the classroom. City Year prevents poverty from causing students to drop out of school and possibly out of life as well. With City Year, a student’s chances of graduating triple.
Harry’s Shaving Products Factory
A dedicated German factory houses machines for grinding steel into sharp blades. Take a quick look online at the factory where skilled individuals take a personal interest in the outcome of this process. Each razor contains 5 blades with a lubricating strip, precision trimmer, and flex hinge.
The Truman Set
Harry’s basic kit is their $15 Truman which qualifies for free shipping in the United States and which can also be shipped to Canada.
All you require for a smooth profile is right here. A special textured, rubber exterior of orange, blue, or green provides reliable grip, and weight is balanced for control.
Foaming gel lathers up beautifully and smoothly to help a razor skim your skin’s surface in search of hair and nothing else. A Truman kit contains the Razor Handle, a 4-oz bottle of Foaming Shave Gel, 3 German-engineered Blade Cartridges, and a blade cover.
The Winston Kit
In most ways, Harry’s Winston Kit is identical to the Truman except that the handle has changed. An ergonomic blend of die-cast zinc and polished chrome contrasts with the rubber central grip so you don’t lose the safety element but add refinement to the appearance of your shaving tools. Get it engraved and give the Winston as a gift priced $25 (engraving is extra and not supplied by Harry’s).
Plan for a Smooth Future
According to their calculations, a regular razor costs $4 per blade. I’m unsure as to which razors they are talking about; clearly not the usual items sold at Walmart because they are cheap, and where else is a person going to find a German-engineered blade besides Harry’s and maybe a specialty shop in Germany?
The point is, each precise blade at Harry’s costs just $2 and is good for several shaves. Subscribe to a Shave Plan and pay slightly less: 8 blades for $1.87 each. Start a two-week trial for the cost of shipping; just $3.
