Almost Happy Birthday Harry’s

On the brink of their one year anniversary, Harry’s is reaching for the stars and literally plucking them down from the night sky.  Having just taken the men’s grooming world by storm back in March 2013, Harry’s has quickly found a cozy home for themselves in the booming niche of men’s grooming.  It’s almost as if they have been at this for hundreds of years, but they haven’t, it’s only been 10 months…10 MONTHS!!!!!!!

As I’m scrolling through my Twitter feed on this snow-covered morning, I came across a new tweet from my favorite VEGAN friendly shaving company.  There was an article from DealB%k in the NY Times written by Michael J. De La Merced, in which he highlights the most recent move from Harry’s that will undoubtedly shake up the “David vs. Goliath” world of shaving once again.  This past Monday they announced the purchase of their own  razor blade factory in Germany – the very factory that already produces their “sharperer” razor blades so that you can have a smoother than a baby’s bottom face for a fantastic price.  This is very exciting news from a company that I’ve been keeping a close eye on ever since I came across one of their Facebook advertisements just this past summer.  If you are interested in the details of the deal, I highly recommend reading the article,

A Start-Up Run by Friends Takes On Shaving Giants

Briefly about Harry’s…

Based on a simple idea from the genius minds of Andy Katz-Mayfield & Jeff Raider, the two set out with one goal in mind, which is my favorite tag lines from their website:


“Handsomer. Sharperer. Less Expensiver. An exceptional shave at a fraction of the price”

“Harry’s was built out of respect…for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and most importantly for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave.”

Those very elements: quality craftsmanship, simple design, convenience and affordability are infused into every aspect of this New York City based start-up.  Holding a Harry’s, you quickly realize this isn’t your run of the mill razor.  Every time I shave I know that my facial hair doesn’t stand a chance!  Did I mention the price?!  With a Harry’s razor and shaving cream, rest assured that your wallet won’t be pillaged like the Vikings raiding England.  You’re getting a great shave with a great design and a fantastic price.  Its a solid piece of equipment that your face and your wallet will be thanking you for years to come.

Cheers to you, Harry’s.  I cannot wait to see what else you guys have up your sleeves.
