Weve entered the market at an ultra premium price point for marketing reasons and due to manufacturing complexity, and are now looking for the investment we need in manufacturing to launch a mainstream line.

Zafirro kickstarts its (formerly) $100K sapphire razor for less than $199

Nov 20, 2015

Delivered to your inbox for free! Zafirro is known for producing the world’s most expensive razor , a $100,000 shaver with an iridium handle and sapphire blades. Since its debut in 2011, the cost of producing sapphire has plummeted and now Zafirro is crowdfunding  its original Z2 razor at a much more reasonable price tag. Zafirro is funding the next production run of its Z2 razor on Kickstarter with packages starting at $149 for a single Zafirro razor, which is $150 off the razor’s estimated $299 retail price. This $149 tier already has been claimed, but there are other limited-slot tiers available with prices ranging from $179 to $229. If you want to be among the first people to get a Zafirro when it becomes available next year, you can pledge $279 and receive your razor in October 2016 instead of the predicted December delivery date. Why would you pay $200 for a Zafirro when you can purchase a basic razor for less than $20? Unlike your drug store Gillette razors, Zafirro uses sapphire on its cutting blade. With 80 atoms at its tip, the sapphire blade is sharper and harder, making it 100 times more durable than competing steel blade razors. Zafirro predicts a single sapphire blade can last between 6 to 12 months, with an even longer blade life possible in the future. After a year, owners can purchase a replacement blade that could retail for $49 or less, depending on the volume of Zafirro razors sold and the price fluctuations of sapphire over the coming year.

The EPA estimates that consumers throw away 2 billion razor blades each year, making the razor a significant source of bathroom waste. With its year-long blade, the Zafirro has the potential to reduce razor blade waste by a significant amount. The only unknown about the Zafirro is its final design — while the company wants to keep the classic style of the original Z2 model, it may not be able to do so, as high volume production may necessitate some design changes in the handle. Zafirro promises that if is does have to tweak the look of the razor, it will “make sure it’s a great design.” Also watch: Raimond de Hullu's vision for Oas1s green buildings Get our Top Stories delivered to your inbox:
