What is the best shaver for me?
Safety and straight razors are making a bit of a comeback lately. More and more men are finding that to look cool they need to take better care of their face.
Part of that means taking their daily routine more serious and using good quality tools.
This site is all about making sure you know what is available and how to use it.
Razor or a Shaver?
Grabbing a glob of shaving cream and a straight razor may not be your cup-o-tea, but for some it is the perfect shave. Clean, smooth and professional.
The consensus seems to be that there is no concensus. Dude A might like a quick shave in the shower with a disposable while dude B prefers to take the methodical approach with his trusty straight razor and some scented shaving cream. It really comes down to personal taste and lifestyle
Some guys have the time to take the straight razor approach, some don't. Or maybe he doesn't feel confident sliding cold steel against his neck that early in the morning. What ever it is guys, fear not, there is a solution that fits your needs.

The Most Popular Straight Razor
A straight razor with a replaceable blade may to some me be the best reason to have stubble in the morning. This razor kicks ass! Not only is it made of genuine stainless steel but unlike so many other razors on the market, it is designed to give you the option of changing the blade if it should become less than sharp. This not only saves you time on sharpening the blade, but also skin. Using a consistently sharp blade will assure you that you are getting the most efficient shave possible. No stropping the blade, no nicks due to a less than perfect cutting edge.
The Parker SR1 comes with 5 blades to get you started, and xtras are easily sourced. Here is why you should use a straight razor....
