Silvertip Badger Brush
2.5" Leather and Denim Strop
A.P. Donovan Shaving Cream
Wooden Storage Box
Product Code: ESC007111
Crafted from high quality Japanese Steel, harder than stainless steel so it will stay sharp longer before needing to be honed (Rockwell hardness of 60 and ranked among the best in the world).The gorgeous wooden scales are made from Madagascan Mahogany matching the shaving brush.
Blade Material High Quality Japanese Steel
Blade Dimensions 7/8" round point
Handle Finish Madagascan Mahogany with metal inlay
The stunning handle is made from Madagascan Mahogany with a metal base and top plate. Filled with Silvertip Badger hair, it is sensationally soft on the face, while still having enough backbone to whip up a rich and creamy lather.
The 2.5" wide two part leather and denim strop is perfect for keeping the razor in shave ready condition. Use the denim side for realigning the razors edge. Use the leather side to remove the burrs that form on the edge after shaving.S
Use this on the leather side of the strop, it aids the stropping process.
The Wooden Box
This box has been hand crafted; no two boxes are exactly the same. The box is vented to allow air to circulate around the razor (always dry the razor before storing it). The box closes tight with the aid of a fancy metal clasp. Expect slight variancies between boxes and minor blemishes, these boxes are made by hand.
Sandalwood Shaving Cream
Lather up straight from the aluminium screw top tin. This sandalwod scented cream will deliver a rich, creamy lather to allow the razor to glide over the skin.
HOW TO USE
Ensure the razor is shave ready, strop beforehand if required.
Lubricate the bearded area with lather from a good quality shaving soap or cream, for best results use a shaving brush.
For a close shave, we recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
We strongly recommend you watch some tutorial cut throat YouTube videos BEFORE your first shave.
You only need to apply minimal pressure, let the razor do the work.
