Inside the Weird World of Disposable Razors
Johnny Davis takes a look at the wild, wonderful world of the thirty-four billion dollar disposable razor market. The subtitle, I thinks, says it all: “Atomic microscopes, lawsuits, secret-research facilities, hipsters, pubic hair, more lawsuits, a frankly ridiculous number of blades, YouTube spoofs and even rocket scientists.”
It’s a long form piece, but a worthwhile read; and it sorta, a little, kinda helps you understand why your Mach 3 turbo blades cost so much, how companies like Dollar Shave Club can enter the game, and the dawn of the new all-body disposable razor…which, as you can guess, isn’t for your face.
