“BornSharp represents a breakthrough in shaving,” says Steve Worthington, BornSharp’s founder and inventor. “These patents are the first to introduce a method that automatically and precisely re-sharpens a durable razor, making it a long-term replacement for disposables for which the shaving experience degrades over a short period of time by design and can be quite costly on an annual basis. By doing away with the need for disposables, the technology is a boon for consumers and for the environment.”
These patents provide a sustainable competitive advantage in terms of an economic moat that strengthens the BornSharp product offering,” said Worthington
According to Worthington, BornSharp’s breakthrough patents are the first ever granted for a razor with a precision extensible blade and an automated sharpening system as well as several other unique claims. Patent research indicates that there are at least 20,000 patents currently covering the razor blade market. BornSharp’
BornSharp combines the best of classic wet shaving and disposable razors with electronically controlled sharpening technology that uses the same technology as that found in 3D printers. The blade, freshly sharpened every day, lasts for more than 2,000 shaves, a full five years before the blade needs to be replaced. BornSharp technology is an outstanding alternative to the waste and high cost brought on by disposable razors and cartridges. The worldwide market for disposal razors exceeds $13.5 B annually, and BornSharp is a meaningful replacement for consumers seeking a convenient, consistent and eco-friendly shaving experience.
BornSharp is based in Santa Barbara, California. It was founded by engineer and entrepreneur Steve Worthington in 2012. For more information about the system as well as a 3D animation of how the system works, please visit www.BornSharp.com.
