Just released was a podcast episode by host Mike Dillard of the popular 'Self Made Man' show. This episode was all about the creation of the OneBlade from the founder of the company, Porter Stansberry. He begins with the initial idea, then goes on to development failures and successes, hiring the design team and CEO, sourcing materials, testing, funding, and what it takes to create and maintain a successful business. But mostly, it is all about shaving.

Even if you do not own a OneBlade, or do not plan to buy one, you should find the show fascinating, as it really gets into all the nitty-gritty of what it takes to create and market a modern razor.

I am posting a link to this podcast at the bottom of this post, but if the mods feel that the link goes against the rules, please feel free to remove the link. In that case, the podcast can be found through iTunes, or by searching for the Mike Dillard 'Self Made Man' podcast. And the show was released this December 9th, with Porter Stansberry.

Great story, Great razor. I am even happier after hearing this interview that I purchased the razor.

I feel the same way, rawfox1. Knowing the back story of a cherished possession gives it more meaning, and helps you not take it for granted. Especially with a razor like this, with years of R&D, and the very best materials and design behind it! I just find the million little details about what goes on behind the scenes here fascinating...

I happen to be on the Mike Dillard mailing list, and he sent me a follow up email about last week's podcast with Porter Stansberry. They have offered listeners to this podcast 35% off the cost of the OneBlade ($104.65 discount) for those who use the coupon code "DillardHoliday35" (without quotes) into the OneBlade checkout screen. He says in the email the code will only work till this Friday.

I just scored a spare... Big Grin

Great discount and thanks for sharing Len. Incidentally, for the discount to work you need to order the razor alone.

Best place for blades seems to be, as in so many other cases, Connaught: http://connaughtshaving.com/fhs10.html
