A little tardy, but, we've got a new website!
http://www.wetshavingproducts.com

A lot easier to navigate than the old one. I've done away with wordpress and moved to shopify. Done away with the blog I never used too.

In other news, we've also moved physical locations. Out of the tiny shared space in Gilbert, and into a whole suite in Chandler. We even have a front reception/retail area. Come on down and check it out if you're in the Phoenix area.

Catching up with even more news:
Formula T is no longer secret. Reviews from testers have come back positive, I can't think of any more improvements. On to scent selection and label design.
It will be coming first to Razor Emporium as their new Private Label line in the Connecticut Yankee scent.

Matterhorn has been slated for a full size production run. Black Orchid has not.

Starbucks is our new scent that has been just released in sample sizes. Smells like a coffee shop. Or espresso.

And aftershaves. They've been out for a while, but I haven't posted anything here. But, what is new are the labels. We're rolling out new gold & black labels, so be on the lookout for those soon.

And knots are back on the website again. A few people have been asking me about that.

Finally, we've made some beard oil. Use code "freebeardoil" for a free bottle. Please provide feedback in return.

New site looks good- well done! I have only recently begun using WSP soap [have mahogany and blackbeard] but am a fan of both the scents and performance. Blackbeard is a particularly nice take on a Bay Rum riff; the tobacco and cherry really makes it. Keep up the great work.

Looking good! Much easier to navigate.

Mahogany is one of my "Top 5" soaps.

Just out of curiosity why do you stock and sell gold dollars?

The can be had for much less shipped.. And they are not very reliable. A few out of 10 can be made to shave and even at that number they have to be beaten into submission.

Not to bash but when I see a website selling gold dollars that aren't modified and say they're shave ready. I'm out.

For me it boils down to 2 reasons.

They don't know any better

They don't care enough to stock quality straight razors.

That's my 2 cents based on what I've seen on the Internet.

They're beat into submission and sharpened... I don't understand your question. They're the only new straight razor you can get for under $100 that's made out of hardened steel. I think the charge for sharpening them is well under valued compared to the time and effort it takes to sort through them and get them sharpened. You don't have to re shape them to get them shave ready.

It's an under served market that is begging to be filled. The sub $100 straight razor only has Gold Dollar, and most sellers don't bother to sharpen or QC them. And even more just sell the crappy 66's, which are pieces of poo.

Quality over quantity is my point. It's not an underserved market at all. All over eBay you can get them. If you sharpen then or not doesn't make them good. They are cheap razors nothing like a quality made razor new or vintage. I think it's misleading to beginners at the sport. That's all I'm saying. Sorry but that's my opinion.
