Corey Greenberg on NBC's Today Show The Perfect Shave - The last Sunday in January of '05, Corey Greenburg, Tech Editor for the NBC Today Show, did a wet shaving article and TV segment about wet shaving that hit the air waves. That show caused an immediate impact and increase in our Em's Place, Inc. business. It was like being placed back into the holiday selling season, but without the inventory buildup. We were placing emergency orders with our international vendors to meet the demand. Further, with his focus on the double edge razor, even the main manufacturer we work with, Merkur/Dovo, ran out of stock for many items. This was not just something our company experienced - it had an impact on all the wet shaving merchants we know about here in the states, as well as on many product makers worldwide. This national exposure to traditional wet shaving with a brush and double edge razor escalated the desire to try a different shaving technique and exposed a whole new generation to a more traditional shave by making lather with a shaving brush.
