King of Shaves began as a small venture, reportedly started for less than £15,000 ($25,000) in the 1990's, and has now grown up into a potential £45 million ($74 million) sale for its founder, Will King.
At least two potential bidders, including Remington and Japanese razor blade supplier Kai Industries, have been interested in purchasing the company.

It's about time someone took shaving to the street. King of Shaves is kicking it old-school with Pimp My Shave, a website a la Am I Hot or Not, but for the pimpin' shaving underground.
If you look in the mirror after a fresh shave and think to yourself, “I should be getting paid to look this good!” just remember that you can and you should! Whip out the digital, snap a shot, and click here to upload your images. Let us be the judge whilst soliciting the jeers of haters nationwide. Please note that King of Shaves urges those haters to stop hating, and start cooperating by also submitting their photos.
Judging by the photos which are up there now, you've got plenty of chances to win. Um hello? Where's the guy who's installed a PSP is his beard? I saw them put a Playstation in an old VW Bug on Pimp My Ride so I know it can be done.
Prizes include $100 vouchers to shave.com, and the mac daddy of pimpin' shaves gets a trip for two to New York, hotel, Knicks tickets and "an 'unwinding session' at the famous Paul Molé Barber Shop." You may need to provide your own satin suit, diamond tipped cane, and grill.
Shaving oils are a leap of faith. The first time you oil up your face, you'll swear there's nothing there. But for some, shaving oils are the wave of the future. They're small in size which makes them ideal to travel with. A few drops cover your entire face, so they last forever. Shave for shave they're the best bang for the buck.
Shaving oils are not for everyone. Experience indicates that they're best for lighter beards and heartier skin, but that's an unscientific survey of only a couple people. Also, shaving oils shouldn't be confused with pre-shave oils, which go on before a layer of shaving cream or gel. When using shaving oil, you don't use anythng else.
The two best shaving oils we've tried are the all-natural Pacific Shaving Oil and the mostly natural King of Shaves Formula Alpha Shaving Oil Supercooled Menthol. Both are available online for about six bucks, and King of Shaves has recently become available at local drugstores. You can read the ShavingStuff review of Pacific Shaving Oil here. You can read the review of King of Shaves... oh wait - you can't read the review because the reviewer never wrote one. (You know who you are.) But I have heard back from him that King of Shaves scored very highly, and he used up the whole bottle.
King of Shaves sponsored the team of James Sheppard and Chris Parsonage in the Class 1 Powerboat World Series this past weekend. How'd they do? Well, according to this website:
Championship leader Spirit of Norway dropped from third to seventh after returning to the pits to replace a broken propeller with Chris Parsonage and James Sheppard aboard King of Shaves capsizing during lap eight.
Oof! Not good.
But never fear. You can rectify the situation by winning your own speedboat competition at KingOfPower.com from King of Shave - a Flash game where you control a speedboat while listening to the latest British pop sensation Rocketchild. Notice I say you can rectify the situation, and not I. I sucked at this game. But I suck at most games. So click on over and win one for her majesty.
More info on the King of Shaves' sponsorship is available here.
I bought some of this stuff recently, and I gotta tell you, I was really surprised to learn that the stuff truly does appear magnetic. I squirted some on the head of my Norelco electric shaver (the one with the gel packs) and then turned it on. No joke, this stuff started to ooze in the direction of the blades rotation! It truly did! Just to make sure this wasn't normal and perhaps I've never noticed before, I washed it off and repeated the same process with some kinda face goop my girlfriend uses. It isn't meant for shavning or anything, but it's about the same consistency. Well, with that stuff on the shaving heads, turning on the blades didn't do a thing. They just spun and spun under the goop. It didn't budge. I rinsed it off, added some of this stuff again, fired it back up, and sure enough, it started moving around the rings. The spinning metal really did draw the gel closer. It was crazy; crazy-awesome! =)
Oh baby, have I got Olympic fever. I've always loved the winter olympics more than the summer. More speed. Whether is screaming down a mountain or careening down an ice chute, the winter olympics are all about going fast over the ice and snow. And this year I'll be taking time out from rooting for team USA to cheer for Kristan Bromley, sponsored by our good friends over at King of Shaves. Excuse me - that's Kristan Bromley Ph D.
32 year old Kristan Bromley from Bath is the current World Cup and European Bob Skeleton Champion, winning five out of the seven World Cup events in 2004. He is very hopeful of winning a British medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. This would be one of only six Gold medals ever won by Britain in the winter Olympics, which began in 1924. The King of Shaves sponsorship deal will enable Kristan to develop his Skeleton bobsleigh and remain on track in his quest to win the event.
Read more here. And while you're there, check out the Flash game where you can pretend to sled like a champ. I landed in a tree the first time I tried, but the next time I finished in style. Maybe I can get Gillette or Schick to sponsor me at the olympics...
I love technology. People, we are living in great times. Remember Billy Jealousy's silicon beads? Well say hello to the King of Shaves' MagnaGel MME Shaving Gel, winner of FHM's 2005 "Best Shave" and runner-up in the "Best Grooming Innovation" awards. What makes MagnaGel MME Shaving Gel so special? Science.
MagnaGel MME (Micro Magnetically Enhanced) shaving gel sets the new standard for shaving software. Micro-magnetically enhanced particles 'stick' to the blade throughout the shave, delivering an unsurpassed level of lubrication and protection [...] our DDS [Dual Delivery System] is now incorporated at a micro-pore level as well as in the capsules! Vitamin E and grapeseed oil are contained in tiny capsules which break when massaged on the skin, delivering a skin-perfecting burst of ingredients to heal and lubricate more quickly and effectively than ever before. helping to give excellent razor glide.
Magnetic particles?!? Vitamin-filled capsules?!? Yes! Yes! Yes! Look, there's a time and place for all that natural stuff. And then there's a time for man-made genius. I don't see a team of flowers and vines working to make your shave better. Plus, if you use this stuff long enough you'll probably get superpowers.
