About Us

Colonial was founded in 2016 in Pennsylvania by identical twin brothers, Kirk and Kyle Evans.  This business is our passion, our side hustle.  We love the traditional wet shave and it brings us happiness by serving others through it.


“Our brand inspiration is derived from 18th century American history, and it is our goal to bring that bygone era back into the modern world through our designs and concepts.”


The first version of The General was released in August 2016 to much success and praise from the wet shaving community.  It was a self-taught design endeavor and we are proud of its success.

Since we are identical twins, we naturally share the same hobbies and passions in life.  Our other passion, apart from wet shaving, is metal detecting Pennsylvania farm fields in search of 18th century log house sites.  The hashtag #colonialbonanza on our social media posts is our jolly reminder of the days when we bonanza at the site of a long-forgotten 18th century log house.

We thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in us!  If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free contacting us via email and we will be glad to help out!
