During a semester abroad in the Middle East I came across wet shaving as an alternative way to shave when I had some difficulty getting replacement heads for my five-blade name brand razor. Coming back to the USA for my last year of college with a collection of soaps and alum stones I got my friend and roommate hooked on wet shaving because of its lower cost (great for broke college students). Shortly thereafter we started Rhys Razors because of our desire to provide great wet shaving products at a lower cost than what was available at the time. After college, my friend and I went our separate ways and I gave him my half of the company so that I could focus on my master’s studies. After a few years I decided it was time to get back to Rhys Razors because I still think wet shaving is far more affordable, better for the environment (over the typical name brand razors and canned shaving cream), and can really help those that have issues with electric and modern razors. I bought full ownership of Rhys Razors in 2019 and relaunched it with a new website and new products over the past year. I look forward to getting the opportunity to share wet shaving with new and returning customers in the coming years.
