I have been a customer of Lee's Razors since 2007 or 2008. The last few orders took forever to ship and now I see he has a message on his site to email him if you want to order. At first I thought he was having issues with his host but, that message has now been up for about two months. Does anyone know what is going on?

That's odd.  I'm curious as to what others may know.

Charlie, Lee's Razors may be out of business.

Yep, that's what I was thinking. It must have been a difficult and sad decision for Lee, obviously. Good luck to him!

The market continues to level.

Sad to hear. Lee is a gentleman and was popular with newbies and seasoned shavers alike as he was patient and helpful with advice.

I commented on the BST regarding “brush saturation “ - brushes that would have been sold in mere minutes years ago that have now gone unsold. So many new brushes to choose from nowadays.

This may be evidence of “vendor saturation”. Just a saturated market nowadays with too many options.

I agree that Phil has little to worry about...but I fear Lee may not be the only victim. I’m sure we'll see more.


This happened with the fountain pen market a few years ago, with many true landmark stores closing up shop.

Yep. Much the same way the old neighborhood guitar store is now a rarity.

Amazingly we still have one in my neighborhood. Been shopping there for 30 years. I love the place. You tell them what you want and they get it. And y'know what? Their prices are within cents of the big box stores. Good, free advice. Friendly faces, and like the song said, they know my name.

I am not sure what might have happened but I seemed to have a very difficult time getting through in order to communicate via phone and email earlier this year with Lee's Razors. Anyways, hope he is okay and doing fine.

When I spoke with him at the beginning of this year (as I recall) he was selling his business.  I hope it has worked out for him.
