Distinctive design has always been a core value of Bolin Webb. We want to create great razors and accessories. Nothing less really satisfies our ambition to make a difference with products that stand out and are remembered.
On our journey, we have attracted the attention of those judging design on a global stage - design from electronics to cars and homeware, to name but a few categories. And, yes, razors too, although we did not expect to become what some call a “serial winner” of design awards.
Bolin Webb now has a wide collection of design and brand awards, which is a remarkable endorsement of our work. We are proud of our track record in design. These international accolades encourage us to keep on striving for excellence.

GQ says "Bolin Webb's Generation Razor is streamlined, easy to use and can give you a precise trim with just a couple of strokes - all of which make it worth the limited real estate in your bathroom cabinet".
