A hot cup of coffee is a nice way to start your day, but nothing beats the feel of cold steel against the throat to invigorate your morning.
The lost art of shaving with a straight razor is going through a revival as today's men are discovering the many benefits of adding it to their shaving ritual. A straight razor will provide a very smooth and close shave like no other razor and there are no overpriced disposable cartridges junking up the environment. The almost meditative morning routine of straight-razor shaving puts you in the company of some manly men like George Washington, Harry Houdini, and John L. Sullivan.
This custom shave kit includes a sturdy kraft gift box and contains the following:
- Straight Razor
- Shaving Brush
- Shave Soap Travel Tin
-Custom Foam Insert
-Kraft Gift Box
Each piece fits perfectly into a custom foam insert.
The razor is a good introduction to traditional wet shaving. It sports a 6/8 carbon steel Gold Dollar 66 blade with engraved bamboo scales which are finished with a natural shellac. The blade is shave-ready and extremely sharp.
Razor is approximately 6.5" folded, 9.5" open
The standard blade is sharp, but will need to be honed on a set of whetstones to prepare the blade for shaving. This can be done at home or by a local professional. A shave-ready blade, as its name implies, is ready to go when you receive it. Like kitchen knives, straight razors will need to be sharpened when they start to become dull.
If you're going to shave like your grandpa, you will need a proper brush to lather up. This classic boar's hair shaving brush with a faux Silvertip badger look will soften and lift your beard, help with trapped hairs, and gently exfoliate your skin in preparation for a razor. A necessary accessory for a clean and close shave.
This good old-fashioned glycerine soap is hand poured into a reusable 4 oz. travel tin that also doubles as a shaving bowl for whipping up a rich lather. No need for a separate mug or scuttle. The rust-proof tin can be used in the shower and includes a handy travel lid so you can stash it in your dopp kit and hit the road. A little bit of soap goes a long way and it is reasonable to expect to get a month or two of shaves out of it, depending on use. Just drop in a replacement puck when the time comes. That's good for anyone looking to reduce waste and save some dough that can be better put toward that bar tab, juicy steak, or the kid's college fund.
The 2 oz. all-natural shave soap comes in a nice reusable tin with a real-wood veneer label and a personalized gift box made from recycled material. This looks as good as it smells, so it makes a nice gift.
