    Hands Behind the Art: Sam Sylver

    Beyond the exceptional shave, many wet shave enthusiasts are sold on the economic and environmental benefits of this straight razor gig. It all comes together when you get a restored edge – won’t break the bank and you can reduce waste! There is also the mystic of passing down an ages old practice and continuing the journey of each of these pieces.

    Buongiorno, miei amici!

    West Coast Shaving copy writer and DE devotee, Heidi, reflects on her recent transition.

    Italia – land of sun-kissed hills & turquoise seas, home to fast cars & high fashion, birthplace of pizza & gelato, haven of history & legend, domain of art & architecture, and my home for the next three years.

    A New Look for a Fine Aftershave

    As you dive into the world of wet shaving, you have probably noticed that there are more details than you ever imaged. While this is a return to a simple, age-old ritual of blade, soap, & brush, it is also so much more. You can get lost in the nuances in fragrance, preferences for hair grade, and even judgements on which piece of steel is “just right”. So it might not surprise you to learn that even the shape of the bottles is given intense scrutiny and planning.
