BladeLife founder David Valdez grew up in the Dominican Republic and came to the US twenty years ago to play Major League Baseball. He has been inventing and improving on everyday products his whole life.
David always found it very frustrating how fast his razors would dull. It was so costly and inconvenient to replace them. Then one day while watching a documentary, he learned that oxygen and moisture are the biggest contributors to razor dullness because they oxidize the blade. He played around with solutions to keep his razor dry but it was not until when he was watching a cooking show and saw a chef dry out meat by using a vacuum to remove the moisture that the inspiration for BladeLife really hit. After another two years of experimenting with different designs, he found the perfect solution.
