The Evolution and Growth of KC Shave Co.

The Evolution and Growth of KC Shave Co.

When we first started this project we knew that there wasn't much out there for premium gifts for men that were both useful and beautiful.  Shaving sets for men have always had the potential to be a highly sought after gift if they were well curated with the best wet shaving supplies.  So, we searched the world over talking to vendors, craftsmen from every corner of the globe until we felt like we really had a good grasp of what we could bring to the market.

It's kind of funny what you see from certain other premium men's shaving outlets.  Prices soaring on name not on quality.  We decided we could produce the best wet shaving kits at a reasonable price.  We could put the best straight razor with premium natural shave soap with high end shaving brushes.  We could engrave these and package them in a way no one has seen before.  Not only could we do all of that, but if we played our cards right we could do it at a price everyone can afford.

At first, everyone was quick to think of us as just another shave club.  We're not a club, we're a premium producer of some of the world's finest shaving supplies.  We're a company founded on the belief that we can give you the best without breaking the bank.  That you deserve to shave like a real man with a real razor.  We think there is this inalienable right as a man to not have razor burn and ingrown hairs due to low grade cartridge razors that pull the hair and jaggedly cut the extended hair.  We think that's crazy.

Our favorite thing to do is talk to you.  We love hearing from you on the reviews and feedbacks.  Send us emails, ask us questions, send us requests.  If you have a problem, please send us an email and we'll try to solve it for you.  If you don't understand how razors work or what the differences are, send us a message.  Facebook is really good for this.  We do this because we love it, but because we have seen the electricity in the reaction these kits get when people open them.  I spoke to a lady at a show a few months back who was telling me about her father using a straight razor growing up and how it made her feel all these years later.  She could still smell the shaving soap.  That's cool.  

We've begun rolling out a whole new line of our own brand of products and kits.  We're introducing new shaving brush stands, safety razors, straight razors, shaving sets, one blade razor, all the stuff for men to wet shave.  We rolled out our new boxes, and we're going to try to keep offering the cigar box so long as we can continue procuring enough to make it viable.  We appreciate all the support, and could not possibly thank each of you enough.  You start working on something and you hope people like it, and to see the response we have this year, it's very humbling and we will work our hardest to continue bringing you the best kits at the best prices.
