Question #3 - Which Razor Is The Best Razor?

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.  

Here Is What Our Customers Are Saying

Question #4 - Which Is The Most Convenient

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.

The Dollar Shave Club – 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!


Question #5 - Which Razor Will Cause Less Waste

safety razors are eco friendly

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. 


We believe we have laid out plenty of good reasons for you to shop with us here at The Wet Shaving Club

1. Our razor works great.

2. You will love shaving with a safety azor.

3. You will spend much less money shaving with our kits.

4. Getting everything in one box is certainly more convenient than multiple shipments. 

5. Our razors and blades contain zero plastic. Which means less plastic waste in your life.

What Does This Mean - HLI

What Is The Human Liberty Index?

The Human Liberty Index (HLI) allows you to see what is likely the most impacting pricing variable for shaving products, the freedom of the workers assembling these products.  Globalization has normalized the costs of raw materials and the technology required to build shaving products and many other products like them.  In almost all cases cheaper products are made in locations with cheaper labor.  

Often the quality is just as good, the unseen cost is most often the liberty of the workers that made the razor you hold each morning.

Our goal is not to judge, or to persuade you on how you should view the Human Liberty Index. Our goal is to inform the consumer, and let the consumer make the decision based on their own moral standards.
