Keep your friends close and your shaver closer. That’s the motto of Battle Brothers Shaving Co., the 100 percent veteran-owned online razer subscription service based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
While living at a forward operating base in Afghanistan, UH-60 Blackhawk crew chief Andrew Weiss found joy in the simple things among the chaos of deployment life. Shaving was one of them.
What was a simple requirement for all the soldiers living there soon turned into a mission to find the perfect shave. What emerged was a brand born out of brotherhood and service. Battle Brothers Shaving Co. is a company for warriors, by warriors, and offers the keenest attention to detail and uncompromising quality in the form of handmade brushes, high-grade stainless steel blades, and razors designed for easy maintenance.
“The true beginnings of Battle Brothers Shaving Co. come from my deployments to OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and OEF (Operation Enduring Freedom),” says Weiss on the company website. “With attention to detail and uncompromising quality, our products are designed to invite you into the luxury of customizing your own exceptional shaving experience. Our razors are designed for easy maintenance. All of our varieties of brushes are handmade and our razor blades are manufactured with high-grade stainless steel.”
Some of the more popular items available include:
- Handmade razors
- Natural and synthetic brushes
- Razor blades
- Shaving kits
Operating similar to other subscription shaver companies, such a Dollar Shave Club, Battle Brothers Shaving Co. stands out from the pack thanks to its undying dedication to service members and veterans. Moreover, for the female service members and veterans, Battle Sisters is in the works, the company says.
The company also offers discounts to law enforcement and other first responders via the GovX platform, which is free to register.
