The shaving company Harry's made a big splash when it arrived on the scene earlier this year and began offering high-end razors at low-end prices. The company's German-engineered blades – available via an auto-refill program for $1.88 a pop – are crafted in a Gothic Arch pattern, meaning that each of the four razors in every cartridge are sharpened at different angles. Set on a rubber hinge that moves to the contours of your face, the variation in shape attacks the hair at different angles, leaving nothing but smooth skin in its wake. The handles are made to feel agile, like paintbrushes, with a zinc alloy core and smooth polymer coating.
Harry's also makes its own shave cream out of marula, coconut oils, milk thistle, cucumber, and licorice. The masculine-scented mix is the perfect chaser to a very close shave. [harrys.com]
