Introduction

Long before the invention of razors, people found they can use two shells much like tweezers,to grip and grab hairs, while others struggled with a roughly sharpened tool and water. As knowledge advanced and copper tools were introduced around 3,000 BC , improved razors made from copper were invented. Next came ‘Alexander the Great’ who demanded his army shave, so enemies could not gain an advantage by grabbing his soldiers’ beards much more combat. Alexander ruled in the 4th century B.C, and is particularly rumored to have preferred the harder tidy “Shaved” look for himself.

Fortunately electric shavers have since been created and developed. The very first was patented around 1928 by Col. Jacob Schick, a united states manufacturer. Remington Rand Corp. then developed mens shavers further, producing its famous Remington brand of electric razors from 1937.
