The fabulously named King Camp Gillette patented a new kind of razor on this day in 1904, putting countless barbershops out of business and making shaving rather safer than it had been in the days of cut-throat razors and the demon barber Sweeney Todd.

It took the Wisconsin-born eccentric two years to produce steel that was hard, thin and cheap enough to make safe disposable blades - but he did, and his company was sold for over 50 billion dollars in 2005. Celebrate close shaves and soft jawlines tonight with a super-smooth Creamy Vanilla Colada.
