It’s been almost two years since this “laser-guided razor” was written about in these pages, and back then I remember having the obvious thought that it would be even cooler if you could actually shave with a laser, rather than just guiding a conventional razor with one. At that time I didn’t even know such a thing was possible, but now the Skarp Laser Razor has been developed, so evidently it is.
The Skarp Laser Razor uses a very small, very precise laser that cuts away a chromophore in facial hair – a revolutionary scientific discovery that has more than one practical application when it comes to shaving. For instance, users of this razor will never have to get a replacement blade ever again, nor will they have to lather up or even use water to shave because the Skarp doesn’t need it.
Unsurprisingly, the Skarp Laser Razor has exploded into a phenomenon on Kickstarter here, where pre-orders are starting at $190 for the next almost-three weeks.
