Back in January, I had the pleasure of meeting with Ken Hill, the CEO of Dorco's US business. While we were still early in the process of developing the Razorpedia.com idea, I pitched his team our vision and it was clear that it resonated with them. Dorco razors are sold in 97 countries worldwide, but surprisingly many US consumers have no idea who they are! At Razorpedia.com, we're all about leveling the playing field and raising awareness of alternative razor brands. Dorco has been a strong supporter of Razorpedia.com since we started, and we're excited to continue to partner with them in a variety of ways.
So why haven't we heard of Dorco? Dorco has historically focused on developing, manufacturing, and selling private label razors to major US retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, and Kmart. If you're not familiar with private label products, it's the same thing as what's commonly known as the store brand of a product (e.g. Costco's "Kirkland" brand or Target's "up & up" brand). However, Dorco shifted its strategy in early 2012 and began to also offer its own branded razors direct to consumers through its retail website (www.dorcousa.com). Dorco's prices are a fraction of what you would otherwise pay for Gillette or Schick blades, and the quality is quite good (I've tried all of their men's razors). Make sure to check out other consumer reviews on Dorco blades here on Razorpedia for a second opinion!
If you're one of the many consumers trying to cut back on spending ridiculous amounts of money on replacement blades, Dorco should be your go-to brand. Dorco sells 3, 4, and 6-blade razors in men's and women's versions, and you can buy a 6 to 8 month's supply of blades for their top of the line 6-blade razor system for about $25.
If that's not convincing enough, Dorco is offering a 25% discount off your entire order by entering the coupon code found HERE. Once you try Dorco blades, make sure to come back to the site to review your experience!
