Until recently, there were not many wet shaving products still made in the USA. However, in some international markets double edge razors are alive and well with many manufacturers. Derby is made in Turkey and is one of our more popular economy brands. But the prices don't reflect the quality and performance. We've had the blades since day one of our store in 2007, and they have been and still are one of our best sellers. The DE razor is a great entry level option with a mild shave. And the shave creams are surprisingly good. If you want to try out classic shaving but aren't yet sure about the initial expense, Derby is an inexpensive way to get started.
