This is a safety razor and brush set with hand made turned wood handles. The handle stock is Sneezewood. This wood is native to South Africa and is known for its durability and light yellow colour. It is known as sneezewood due to the fact that the sawdust can cause violent sneezing. It is therefore extremely difficult to work with and a full respirator is worn during the handle turning process. This is a rare wood as Sneezewood trees are a protected species. The wood stock for these handles come from a reclaimed  200 year old fence post. 
 
Hand made by a master wood turner, the finish is tough and water resistant. (We recommend giving the handles a rub with Woodoc wax polish every now and again to keep the hard wax coating from becoming dull). 
 
Brush: 
  • The brush has a beautiful 24mm premium quality Finest badger knot.
  • Finest grade badger brushes are known for the darker shafts and super soft tips
  • The brush knot is bulb shaped
 
Razor: 
 
  • The razor head is a chrome plated three piece design. 
  • Just the right blade gap (not too mild or agressive).
  • Great audio feedback as the hair is shaved.
  • Will last a lifetime (or more) with due care. 
  • High quality water resistant finish will stand up to daily wet / dry cycles

 

 

 

  How to use: 

Shaving with a safety razor requires a little practice. The skin also needs some time to grow accustomed to the shave. Getting started will be easier if you follow these instructions:

Moisten the beard area, preferably with warm water, and lather it thoroughly with a brush. The longer you lather the beard, the more easily and gently the hairs can be cut. If possible, use a highly effective moisturising shaving cream or soap as this will allow the blade to slide over the skin more easily. Make sure that the shaving head and handle are firmly attached to each other, but only tighten the screw to the extent that it can be unscrewed without too much effort. This ensures that the blade rests at the correct angle. Now begin with the shave. Hold the safety razor at an obtuse angle (approx. 30°) to the skin. Start with the cheeks and allow the razor to slide over the skin, applying gentle pressure. Always shave in the direction of the beard growth (with the grain). When shaving the neck, stretch the skin tight with your free hand. Do not be discouraged by small cuts or grazes. Once you have familiarised yourself with the razor, they will rarely occur.
