i hope this is ok to say but i prefer to buy made in usa when possible. you would be surprised how many nice things are still made here at walmart. including a lot of things that are of interest to wet shavers. like that salsa bowl everyone likes. i just don't think it is fair for an impoverished worker to make us something that is in fact honestly a luxury item. there other things from canada,france etc and those are fine with me as well. i am glad at least some stuff is still usa made at walmart. i did not think this post was appropriate for the shaving forum so i hope it is ok here. i have nothing against developing countries except the treatment of the poor people. i hope many of you will look where a product is made.
