Imperium Shaving began like a lot of companies, in a garage. Owners Dan and Madeline, who both grew up woodworking, made their first razors in 2014, shortly before getting married, as a thank you gift for his groomsmen. The gifts were a huge hit and started them on the path that became Imperium Shaving. Working with limited time, tools, and money they had one goal: To make a beautiful, well built razor. The first few batches were good but not perfect and they refused to start selling anything until they were perfect. So working late hours and researching traditional finishing oils and techniques Dan invented a proprietary coating that turned a beautiful wooden razor into an elegant, and most importantly durable, work of art.
