Welcome to the Diamond Shave Club! The Diamond Shave Club is something we have been planning for months. It is a service to meet your needs of purchasing refill blades and soaps provided by Black Diamond Shaving Co.
So what's this all about?
The average man according to the Wall Street Journal could spend upwards of $163 dollars per year in just razor blade refills. That doesn't include shaving cream which can cost $5-9 every other month. Those cost could reach around $200 per year.
While other options such as "The Dollar Shave Club" and Harry's could cost up to $108 per year for cartridge refills, not including the cost for your shaving cream. (The Executive Package, Most Popular according to Dollar Shave Club website)
Our goal is to help reduce that cost.
Here's what we offer:
- Delivered to your door ( or mailbox) razor blades to fit your double edge or safety razor and a soap for $84 a year. That's $21 every 3 months, an average of $7 month.
What if I don't own a Safety Razor?
- That's totally fine. You can purchase a starter package which will provide you everything you need to begin.
So let's get to the real question...How much does this service cost?
That's a great question..and it's really more affordable then you probably think.
Let's say you already own a Safety Razor and Brush.
- For $21 every 3 months an average of $7 a month we will ship you enough razor blades and soap to last you till your next order. That's right, for $84* a year, your shaving supplies are covered. That's it..Blades, Soap, and Shipping...all covered. You'll receive a new soap and 20-22 blades every 3 months.
- If you choose to not pay for a yearly subscription we can draft every 3 months a total of $96 or $24 every 3 months. You save $12 per year an overall subscription if paid yearly. You can cancel at any point with this option.
I don't own a Safety Razor or Brush.
- For a one time cost of $99**, the first year of shaving is completely covered. We will send you a Safety Razor, a Badger Shaving Brush, Soap, and blades to last your first 3 months. You will receive a new refill of blades and a new soap every 3 months from that point for 1 year.
- If you choose to not pay for a yearly subscription, we will bill the first payment of $49.99 and $24 every 3 months. You save $22 per year an overall subscription if paid yearly. You can cancel at any point with this option.
- Your second year will drop to $84* per year should you continue your subscription in which you will continue to receive your Blades, and Soap every 3 months.
We think that's a fabulous deal for you! And one of the cheapest ways to enjoy your ritual.
Society is shifting. We are tired of paying the ridiculous amount for razors that we have conformed to in the past. With that, the use of Safety Razors, or Double Edge Razors have merged into the mainstream of use and continuing to be a growing alternative to cartridge razors. After all...our fathers and grandfathers used them, and they were considered the greatest generation.
So while we're at it, lets cover a few other things.
What kind of soaps and blades will I be receiving?
We hand select the soaps you will be receiving from mostly small town artisan's here in the good ol' America. While we will occasionally send you what we feel are staples for every shaver, such as Proraso, or Taylor of Old Bonds. As far as blades go, you will receive a variety of blades typically 4 different packs. We do this so you have the opportunity to experience different manufacturers.
How do you know how many blades to send me?
We calculate the amount of blades you receive by the amount of days before you receive your next order. We took many polls of other wetshaver's to determine how often the average person changes their blades. saw that the average number was between 4-6 shaves. We decided to go with the lower to be in the safe side. You will receive on average enough blades to change your blade every 4 shaves should you choose.
How do you know how much soap to send me.?
Again we took many polls and found that the average wetshaver's soap lasted around 3-4 months if they used it everyday. You will receive enough soap to last the average person 3 months.
What if I don't like the soap you send me?
That's a really great question, with a really simple answer. Use it anyway! HaHa! Just kidding...but no really, the soaps we send are not colonges, but they will be top performers. We promise not to send anything crazy such as Arkansas Mudd Shave Soap. We try to keep our scents as neutral as possible.
What are you really all about and why are you so amazing?
Well, we're sure our wives would agree with you, but we're really just two Veterans that are trying to change the world one shave at a time.
Is this all you do?
Well with your help, yes...eventually, but for the time no. One of us still serves on Active Duty just a few years from retirement, while the other finished his time in the Navy and own's Joe Wink's Barber Shop located in Dothan, AL. We are both licensed barbers.
When does my card get charged?
If you pay by the year you'll only get charged at the time you subscribe. If you choose to pay when your subscription ships your card will usually be charged around the 25th of the month your order ships.
What makes your service so different?
We support small town America and artisans. We create the opportunity for you to experience different types of soaps and creams. We're not looking to send you a bunch of things you don't use or want. Soaps and Blades are the necessities, and that's what we're looking to meet. We are looking to appease to the guy (or gal) who's just looking to save money. If you're like us, and have 37 different shave soaps on your counter this might not be the service for you. Then again...who are we to judge. We think the value is so cheap everyone should sign up!
What if I want to tip you guys or leave a portion of my inheritance to you?
Well, we don't accept tips, and while we are certainly appreciative of that we want you to keep that. After all, you had to sit through the countless Thanksgiving's and Christmas's for that, but telling your friends and leaving us raving 5 Star reviews on our Facebook page is also really great
