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. Smile

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. Wink

So . . . any recommendations? Biggrin

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.

RazoRock preshaves and Waxes are made in Canada (I just checked mine)

Not sure about the AS sprays, but the waxes are incredible.

Malaspina stuff is also made in Canada (check with her to confirm), but their creams ans ASB's are great.
