Werxrite was founded in 2016 by Eric and Derek, father & son. After personal experiences with razor blade scrapers left with the blade exposed they recognized the hazard and risk of injury that existed with almost all compact razor blade scrapers on the market that used a steel blade. At that point the two developed a prototype design for a safer scraper. Upon completion and testing of the prototype, the two then teamed up with a design engineer, a local mold development company, and a local plastic injection molding company to bring their prototype to production. They then introduced the RetraGuard safety razor blade scraper.
