Complete your shave
Make the leap from plastic to single blade shaving: closer, more accurate, less irritation... It's your barber's choice, it was your Grandad's choice: learn better shaving for yourself.
Get yourself a top notch razor, an exceptional pre-shave oil, a hot prepared face (courtesy of a brilliant cotton flannel) and the right blade for your skin. Our Purist shaving sets (photo below) will deliver the goods on those fronts...
Upgrade to a truly relaxing morning shave using a classic shaving soap, lathering bowl and shaving brush. The brush warms and exfoliates, the soap prepares the skin and the bowl is for preparing the lather and storing the soap.

“This isn’t a shaving kit born of the ordinary. It’s been handcrafted with a legendary story going in the backdrop. All set to make your mornings better with a good shave?”
The Gadget Flow
The best shave in history starts with an exceptional lather, hand turned from a British horse chestnut planted in 1710.
In 1710 the rebuilding from the Great Fire of London was nearly finished, Istanbul had just lost out to Beijing as the largest city on the planet and Blackbeard was still sailing the seven seas.
Yes, there was a Blackbeard. His real name was Ed.
When you lather up with our small batch (40 at a time) natural juniper scented shaving soap, you’ll be holding hand-turned wood that is 70 years older than the good old United States of America.
On the rim you’ll find the a set of GPS co-ordinates. So you can use satellites in space to position yourself to exactly the spot where the tree grew. In fact Blackbeard would have been so impressed he’d have had a shave. Probably.
