Travis went through an extensive design process and carefully designed products that met the high standard he envisioned for the needs of today's warfighters. Caisson has a full line of razors, stainless steel blades, and shaving soaps. Nominated for a Rosie Award, Caisson Shaving Company was then chosen as Veteran Startup of the Year of 2020.
