A few weeks ago I purchased a Harry’s razor to test it out and see how well it shaved. One of the main questions I have been trying to answer since then is: How long do Harry’s razor blades last? At the time of this post I have shaved with it eighteen times. It’s shaved [...]

Simpson Beaufort B4 Pure Badger Shaving Brush Review

A picture of a Simpson Beaufort B4 pure badger shaving brush laying on it's side on a wooden surface.

The Simpson Beaufort B4 pure badger shaving brush is handmade in Britain and features a faux ivory handle and pure badger hair bristles. Simpson, which was acquired by Progress Shaving Brush (Vulfix) Limited in 2008, touts it as a “superb brush for bowl lathering.” I have pretty much used it exclusively for lathering shaving cream [...]

If you’re trying to decide between a shavette and a straight razor, then there are a couple of things to consider that we’ll discuss in this post.

A Review of Harry’s Razors

A picture showing a Harry's razor with bright orange handle, protective case and a spare cartridge razor.

I’m sure if you ask 100 men if it’s better to shave at night or in the morning you’ll get a wide variety of answers. I personally like to shave at night, but I’ll be the first to admit that there are no hard rules about shaving in the morning or at night. It really [...]

A picture of the front of the Manscaped The Lawn Mower 3.0 box

I don’t claim to be the brightest person in the world. I even don’t claim to be very astute at picking up on social cues. In fact, I am pretty dense at times. When my girlfriend bought me this razor I assumed it was just another pair of clippers with some fancy marketing behind it. [...]

Why You Don’t Need an “Umpteen” Bladed Razor to get a Close Shave
