Razor

Razor grew up in sub-Saharan Africa. He has four sisters. He did well in school and was on track to become the leader of his pride.

One day, he was gently ram shacking a villager’s house — looking for chocolate — when he saw Geoff Eaton on TV, talking about Shave for the Brave.  He decided then and there that he wanted to high five every single Shaver, so he made the long and harrowing journey to St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Razor landed in St. John’s in February 2015, walked into the YACC office, and offered to represent the Shave for the Brave. Once Geoff Eaton crawled out from under his desk, he realized Razor was a kind lion so he ordered him a Shave shirt. The rest is history.
