I, mostly for the heck of it, want to try and get a hold of various Canadian-made shaving products so that I can have an all-Canadian shave.
I don't think there are any DE blades or brushes that are made in Canada, but I know there are Canadian-made aftershaves, shaving creams, shaving soaps, and vintage DE razors. I'm just not sure which ones are worth checking out.
So . . . any recommendations?

No idea on blades.
1937 Schick Injectors were made in Canada. I sold mine recently.
Blades at that time (1937) were made in Canada as well, but it is difficult to verify them from U.S. made blades made at the same time.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what it GR shave cream?

GR is Gentlemens refinery, you can buy it thru fendrihan he is a vender located in the greater toronto area, uses all natural ingrediants, organic essential oils and the like, the barber who started company used to be an executive barber at T&H, and a master barber for AOS... i think the stuff is made by JM Fraser for him.. i like the standard line stuff has a lavender scent to it
