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.
"Once the brand of outliers, beards have become so mainstream that two out of two male J.Crew execs were sporting them on their travels this summer. Beards abound everywhere, from rock festivals to ho-hum cubicles. They've crossed just about every post-pubescent generational and cultural divide.
So what facial hair remains for mavericks to assert that identity instantly? A unibrow looks like neglect. Sideburns can be overlooked. By contrast, you can't miss a mustache. When unaccompanied by a beard, it doesn't grow by mistake.
Cultivating one, however, is even pricklier than a beard."
You probably know about the great grooming supplies available at Art of Shaving, but did you know they have some beautiful straight razors as well? Check out these three sweet straight razors:
These Bocote wood straight razors are handcrafted by Thiers-Issard, a prestigious French razor maker since 1884. The carbon steel blade is hollow ground to deliver a more comfortable shave and the sharpest edge.
Handcrafted by DOVO, a prestigious German razor maker since 1906, the polished carbon steel 5/8" blade on these Cocobolo razors is full hollow ground with a 14 karat gold-plated laser etching on the blade and spine.
This straight razor is also made by Thiers-Issard, with a hollow ground blade and beautiful horn handle.
All of these straight razors (and more!) are available at the Art of Shaving.

"Fact: There's a period of American history known as the Bearded Age. It started when Abraham Lincoln, having been elected, said to his barber: "Billy, let's give them a chance to grow." The trend stuck. Over the next 50 years, every man (but one) in the Oval Office had some form of facial hair. Public officials aside, we now acknowledge a second Bearded Age. Here's a tip sheet for getting it right."
