There’s a scene in “Skyfall” where James Bond is shaving using a straight razor, and every bloke we know admitted to secretly wondering if they were man enough to give it a try. Forget over-priced safety razors (goodbye Gillette), using a straight razor (also known as a cut-throat or barber razor) is the perfect combination of being cool, just a little dangerous, and requiring a skill to be learned. As a personal user of a straight razor every day I can attest to the superb, clean shave they offer and will never, ever go back. But it does take practice.
This kit is a great starter set for the bloke just starting his cut-throat conversion. It contains a badger-hair shaving brush, lathering soap, mixing bowl, and stylish wooden-handled razor. It comes presented in a neat gift box, and would make a fantastic present for any bloke who has annoying hair sprouting from his face.Let's Do This! More Grooming Gifts
Awesome shave experience did have some learning curve to it that's why I bought a book to teach you how to properly use a straight razor. I am 48 and wish I would have been using this since I started shaving.
I'm an older man. I have never been shaved with a straight razor. If you are in my category I definitely recommend watching how to shave videos before using. This razor is RAZOR SHARP😊. Throw away razors are getting much to expensive. I had this razor four days before I got nerves to try it. In time I'll get better at it. I can attest you will get that baby bottom feel. Another reason I recommend this product is it has a lifetime warranty. If you have a son, t would be great to pass on to him.
Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. The blade is very sharp and gives a smooth shave. I can touch him without getting second degree razor burn!
This is an awesome kit. Comes with everything you need to get started. Naked armor is a great company to deal with. I bought a kit a few weeks ago and it came in looking just like the picture. The razor however was not shave ready like in the description. I wrote naked armor and spoke to Derek. What an awesome guy. He responded pretty quickly and addressed my concern. A few days later I had a new razor in the the mail. That was shave ready and it did a great job. Thanks again Derek and naked armor.
I bought this for my husband, he loves it. He was surprised at how easy it was to use and how sharp is was right out of the box, His only complaint is that there isn’t a mug to foam the soap up in.
