The beginning of RazoRock took place on an Italian vacation in 2009. Founders Joseph Abbatangelo and Michael Luorio were charged with bringing back alum stones for their family because they were difficult to find in the states. This set them both on a journey of discovery and passion, lucky for us! Their grassroots business has grown worldwide due to their outstanding customer service and the RazoRock name has since become synonymous with quality Italian shaving products.
Today, RazoRock has an entire line of wet shaving products including special recipe Italian shaving soaps, artisan made pre-shaves and aftershaves, shaving brushes, traditional safety razors, and a large selection of natural deodorants. At Razor Emporium we always have RazoRock shaving soaps in stock. They are a great value and provide a quick cushioned lather that every shaver can appreciate!
Classic, P. 160, Zi' Peppino, Son of Zues, XXX are just a few of their scents. This line is especially great because there are so many unique flavors to choose from! All men, women, beginners, and vets alike can find something they will love. One of our favorites is P. 160, a classic marzipan (sweet almond) scent that is unique in the wetshave community and brings shavers closer the the roots of Italian shaving. The scent is not overpowering and can break up the masculine monotonous cologne scents in your shave den!

Everyone! The broad range of scents, formulas, products, and price means RazoRock and Italian Barber is something that should be in every shaver's den. They are great for beginners you are looking to experiment and don't want to invest a large amount of money into shaving soaps with expensive ingredients, but don't want to sacrifice the quality of their shaves. RazoRock products will work in every water type, with every brush, and all you need to do is select your scent. Seriously, try them if you haven't already!
