Choosing a straight razor over a modern bladed tool can be an intimidating idea. With patience and adapting to the right techniques however, you will soon find yourself shaving with a cool, barber-like confidence to refined end results.

A single blade razor will give a very close shave because it works directly against the skin. Modern, multi-blade razors are guarded, so while you can shave quickly, you will never cut as close without the risk of razor burn. The handle and blade design of a straight razor is also something that modern blade razors can't match.

We want to quash any doubts over committing to changing the way you shave. Following the simple steps below, you will be able to both handle and equip a straight razor with confidence and pride.
