December 13, 2005 Stand in front of the mirror when you get up tomorrow morning and you’ll notice more than a few reminders that man descended from the apes – an unhealthy disposition when threatened and a liberal sprinkling of hair are the most obvious. Males of the species range from growing hair on their heads to hair all over their body and personal grooming preferences often necessitate shaving some or all of this hair regularly. We’ve already covered the shaver designed specifically for shaving heads, and now there’s an equally ingenious shaving accessory for shaving your back – until now, everybody has had to employ the indulgence ofa friend to successfully shave their inaccessible regions. Now you need just slip their favourite razor into the Razorba and shave yourself. All of the alternatives have major drawbacks - chemicals (costs, needs volunteer, potential skin irritation), laser treatment (costs muchos, requires appointment), waxing (costs, hurts muchos) are the sum total of ways man has used technology to combat this age-old problem. So you can see why Razorba should be commended for a job well done!

Indeed, with nearly 3.5 billion males on the planet, we reckon this product could do really well as it sells for just US$30 (Paypal, Visa and Mastercard accepted) and will offer a lifetime of convenience. Fancy pants can pay US$70 if they insist on the Platinum version, and there’s a middle class Gold version priced in the middle for aspiring consumers.

What are the alternatives? All of them have major drawbacks - chemicals (costs, needs volunteer, potential skin irritation), laser treatment (costs muchos, requires appointment), waxing (costs, hurts muchos) are the sum total of ways man has used technology to combat this age-old problem. So you can see why Razorba should be commended for a job well done!

Now one common fallacy we should point out at this stage is that shaving your back will cause the hair to grow back stronger, longer, thicker or darker. It’s not true. The hair will be the same thickness as before. The hair will not grow in longer. If this was the case bald men would regularly shave their heads to gain longer and thicker hair. It will not grow in darker. Read what Gillette says here.
