    Default Safety Razor manufacturer's

    Hello everyone,

    I am researching safety blade manufacturers. I am interested in producing a 2 or 3 blade safety razor.
    Any manufacturer's come to mind? Must be US based.

    Welcome to SRP. I'll stick my neck out and opine that the only multi blade razors manufactured began in the '70s with Gillette, Bic and Wilkinson making the plastic twin blades. AFAIK no company ever made replaceable blade safety razors that used more than one blade at a time. I may be wrong though, I was wrong once before.

    I'm not sure any blades are made in the U.S period. Gillette and Schick are the main ones and though they are U.S outfits I'd bet the blades are made in China but that's a guess.

    Only one that comes to mind for me is Tradere. Although its not in the US, iKon always seems to make some good ones.

    Not sure why it HAS to be U.S. based.....

    I'll also be blunt and say that I'm not convinced that there's a market for a multi bladed DE. For one thing, most DE users use for them nostalgia and the great shaves they deliver. For another thing, if people want a triple blade razor they'll just drink the Kool-Aid and buy a Gillette Mach 3.
