These starter kits include everything you need to begin upgrading your shave. They make great holiday, birthday or father's day gifts. Perfect for the man that has everything. Choose the level that's right for you. The components for each kit are as follows:
Razor:This is a mild, non-agressive Double-Edge Safety Razor. Twist to open butterfly style. Perfect for Beginners. These razors perform very well despite their low price tag. This is the razor we recommend for anyone transitioning from a cartridge razor because of the similarity in blade angle and use. Comes with a blade to get you started.(We recommend trying different brands and finding the best brand of blades for you, they can be found in drugstores or better yet, sample packs on Amazon) .
Brush: This is a boar bristle brush. Don't let the stiff bristles and low price fool you, these brushes break in wonderfully and are excellent for exfoliation and they hold massive amounts of lather. We recommend soaking the brush for a couple minutes before use to help break it in, and make the bristles softer.
Shaving Soap: This 3" diameter puck of our famous black Shaving soap will fit all shaving mugs and is a custom formulated glycerin soap. Easy, dense lather and remeltable to fit into a shaving stick or custom container. Changing from a canned shaving cream or gel will make the biggest difference in the quality of your shave. If you're new to wetshaving, the first step is getting some high quality soap or cream to really step up the shaving experience. So ditch the can of goop and shave like your granddad. For all of you experienced DE razor or straight razor shavers, these soaps are a far cry from roses and lavender. Enjoy your shave again!
Preshave Oil: Step Right up as we extol the virtues of this almost magical elixir! The Holy Black Snake Oil, is an all purpose grooming oil. Masterfully formulated for a variety of uses, including but not limited to- Shaving oil, pre-shave treatment, beard oil, scalp tonic, Anti-dandruff( for scalp and beard), Leave in conditioner, and anti-frizz. You could also probably use it to oil your razor to prevent rust, and even lubricate an electric hair clipper in a pinch. A very important tool in your grooming arsenal. For Preshave use, rub 1-2 drops into the skin then lather as usual and enjoy the slick glide and nickless shave you deserve. 1oz bottle.
Aftershave Lotion: Infused with Aloe Vera to soothe the skin, this aftershave lotion is alcohol free and is a great follow up to our whiskey based Aftershave Tonic or alone as a stand alone treatment. Moisturizing and cooling. Also great for dry skin, cracked hands and heels and all around moisturizing tasks. Formulated for men and smells like a man should. 100 ml bottle.
All Products are made in our signature scent: Gunpowder and Spice
Gunpowder and Spice is exactly what it sounds like, a mix between the classic Ol' Spice scent with the added aroma of freshly fired black powder. The smokiness of the black powder mixes well with the spices you remember from when your grandfather splashed it on. Shave like a man, leave the roses and lavender behind
