Well, it’s a timeless question. One we’ve all pondered. And rather than bloviate here about it, let’s just check out Bill Nye, the Mythbusters, and more giving their opinions.

Dollar Shave Club Looks to Back End

June 6th, 2013 · Blades

The Dollar Shave Club guys are expanding their product line.

One Wipe Charlies are the DSC’s new flushable wet wipes for toilet use.

Great idea. I know several guys who swear by these things.

Now, the blade cartridges DSC ships to you come from Dorco and can be ordered direct in bulk, if you don’t mind storing them yourself. Save a little change even compared to the DSC membership rate.

One Wipe Charlies are $4 per pack of 40. That’s a dime a sheet by my count.

I’d probably check out Costco or Sam’s first. Can’t blame DSC for looking for a margin bump.

What’s up next, guys?

Monthly hair-grow foam maybe?

Energizer Cries the Blues; Points Finger at Mean Old P&G

May 3rd, 2013 · Blades, Razors

Gee Energizer (owner of the Schick brand), we’d have thought that you knew when you go to war against the big boys, you are going to take some hurt.

Ward Klein, CEO of Energizer, is claiming that the US wetshaving market is shrinking. And that Procter and Gamble is to blame.

According to Klein, massive promotion by P&G in the men’s shaving sector is causing the market to shrink. It took my pea brain a couple readings to understand what he’s getting at.

P&G is giving away so much free shaving swag, fewer people are forced to spend money on it, and thus the market shrinks.

P&G claims the market is growing.

Sour grapes, Pink Bunny! You bought Schick to what, knock Gillette out of the top spot for wetshaving supplies in North America? You’re kidding, right?

Sounds to me like Gillette has the deep pockets, and they’re willing to dip into them to put the hurt on any encroachment from Schick. Oh well. Enjoy the free market, guys!

I hope this gets bad enough that Energizer files suit against P&G. Waaaah, waaaaah, they didn’t play fair. Hilarious.

Wetshavers should cause the market to shrink by not buying multi-blade-multi-dollar cartridges, or canned goo. That would make the Bunny and the Moonface take a second look at what and how they market when it comes to shave gear. Spread the word! Go DE or Straight/Cutthroat! We’re not gonna take any more shaving highway robbery from either of you!

That could happen, right?
