On this page you will find a summary review of which is the best shave club. Of course, since we are a one of the competitors, we have a bias on this topic. However, rest assured, the facts and details in this article are correct. If they weren’t, we would quickly hear from our competitions’ lawyers. And rightfully so.
For this article we will compare the The Wet Shaving Club’s Retro Safety Razor Deal with the The Dollar Shave Club’s Humble Twin, and Harry’s Truman Razor.
Let us take a moment here to point out that we are comparing a safety razor to two cartridge razors. For those that have never used a safety razor, or for those that have never heard of a safety razor, we have a page dedicated to all things Safety Razor related. We suggest you check that page out. If you fall into one of those categories, then it is likely that decades of “Big Razor” marketing campaigns have led you to believe that the more blades you have, the better shave you will get.
We refute that fallacy and others in our article “The Safety Razor vs The Cartridge Razor”.
Now, back to the shave club comparison. Below we will ask and answer some questions to help you decide.
Our razor handle is made in China. Our blades are made in South Korea.
Seem weird that we would highlight this? Do please read more about the Human Liberty Index to find out why we do.
But, more importantly, keep in mind we sell a razor that is made in Germany, and one that is Made In The USA!
Harry's highlights the fact that their blades are made in Germany. They do not mention that their handle is made in China. Our source is at the bottom of this article.
We are not casting stones. We are simply pointing out what we found.
The DSC Humble Twin is made in South Korea. Our source is at the bottom of this article.
They used to be made by Dorco. We are unsure whether that is still the case.
So which is the most cost effective?
The Wet Shaving Club = $24
The Dollar Shave Club = $48
Harry’s = $95.48

The truth is we cannot objectively answer this question. Both The DSC and Harry’s have hundreds of thousands if not millions of customers, and plenty of positive reviews on their products.
What we can say, is that we have used the DSC’s Humble Twin, and Harry’s Truman razors, and we have used numerous safety razors. Our conclusion? In almost every case, a safety razor gave us a superior shaving experience. In fact, we started the Wet Shaving Club because we enjoyed the safety razor experience much more than we did the cartridge razors we had used prior.
Yep, we are playing the convenience card.
The Wet Shaving Club – You get your metal razor handle and one year of metal blades all at one time, in one box.
DSC – You get a plastic handle with 5 plastic cartridges the first shipment, and 5 plastic cartridges per month every shipment after.
Harry’s – You get a plastic handle. You then replenish your plastic cartridges in whatever increment you decide to buy them.
It would be hard to dispute that getting everything you need in one box is the most convenient for you and the environment!
We can answer this question really quickly.
The Wet Shaving Club razors are all made of metal, and our blades are pure metal and can be properly disposed of without adding more plastic to the landfills.
DSC – Plastic razors.
Harry’s – Plastic razors.
