Our Passion: The Straight Razor Kit
This is actually one of those exciting things that get us out of bed at 4:30 am every day. For decades the men out there have been mass fed cheap, poorly constructed razors by mega multi-national conglomerates. We've been under served for real razors, and where they were available the sticker shock was palpable. We decided we have to do something to bring Straight Razor Kits to the masses in a responsible way that could bridge that divide.
When we launched the Thomas Straight Razor Kit we knew immediately we had found the right mix. Almost immediately we sold out of our stock, and spent much of our first year trying to keep supply. We did discover that most men do not know how to hone and sharpen their blades so we started sending them out pre-sharpened so now they just need to be stropped to keep their edge.
We heard a lot of requests for the barbershop-style shavette straight razor. This is the straight razor that has a disposable blade so you get the close tight shave without having to do any work on the blade itself. We introduced a variety of kits to address these requests.
The Adam Straight Razor Kit has been immensely popular along with the Bulldog Straight Razor Kit. A popular feature we offer is the ability to engrave handles which is important because our razors can last a lifetime if cared for properly. With these kits, you also get our soothing and nourishing shave soap (Polished Mahogany or Vanilla Bean Bourbon) and a boar hair shave brush all at an affordable price.
We priced our kits to be comparable to the Shave Club pricing in a year over year expense comparison. The idea is to give a far superior shave with an entirely affordable price. We continue to listen to feedback, add new scents to our shave soaps, and add new styles of straight razors along with altogether new straight razor kits. We do offer the straight razors, shave soaps, and shave brushes individually in the Shave Supplies section.
