KC Shave Co Elite Shaving Supplies - My Pick and Story

Ever since I was a kid I couldn't wait until the age that I could shave like my Father. I would watch him several times a week with his safety razor, shave brush, mug and shave soap.  As a kid it looked so fun and enjoyable.  The whole process from lathering the soap until you reach the perfect texture, to the smooth shave the safety razor appeared to give.  Not to mention how cool the razor looked!

 I'm 34 years old and I've been shaving for nearly 16 years, I've been through and used all razor types and methods.  From the mug and wet shaving I mentioned above to using an electric razor.  I started off wet shaving for a few years.  When I went to college I got lazy and switched to either a big box store cartridge razor or an electric razor.  I quickly became frustrated with the expense and no longer looked at shaving as fun but more of a mundane chore.  Not only that but I just wasn't getting a good shave.  So I decided to go back to wet shaving.  

Let me tell you, that first shave back was amazing!  I used a Parker 99R butterfly safety razor, an Omega 636 silvertip badger hair brush and WSP Mahogany shave soap.  I couldn't believe that I had stopped using all of these amazing shaving supplies to go to a boring electric razor.  It honestly rejuvenated me and took me back to the days I remember as a kid.  Since then shaving has become a ritual I look forward to everyday and not just a boring mundane task that I have to do.  This is where the idea of KC Shave Co came from.  I knew there had to be a way to get men back to their roots of shaving. 

My Shaving Kit pick would happen to be The Godfather.  This shaving kit comes with a Parker 99r, black mango shave bowl, boar bristle shave brush and your choice of shave soap.
