It started when Gillette began supplying the US military with razors in WW1, the soldiers came out of the service with a razor they were familiar with so they stuck with them. Also, Gillette had the money to spend on advertisements that the smaller American Safety Razor couldn't come close to competing against. Now, I'm not saying that's a bad thing because Gillette was in the business of selling as many razors and blades as possible and they were (are) pretty darn good at it.
