Cut Throat Razor Set – for Real Men
vintage style straight blade shaving kits
Lets face facts gentlemen, electric shaving is for girls, real men shave with a cold steel blade against the skin and we are not talking about those namby, pamby safety razors either, no real men shave with a cut-throat razor.
Wet shaving with a cut throat just seems so dangerous and edgy, probably due in part, to the antics of the celluloid demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeny Todd, who took great pleasure in dispatching his customers with a swift razor slash of the throat, before turning them into meat pies for his much more lucrative fast food business.
Of course, we don’t expect you to spill any blood in your shaving endeavours (well, maybe a little, if your a straight blade virgin, accidents are inevitable) but for that extra close shave, a straight bladed razor is the way to go.

Bluebeards Revenge – Cut Throat Razor Starter Kit
by The Bluebeards Revenge
A traditional straight razor requires a fair amount of attention and maintenance in order to deliver the perfect shave, the blade has to be honed to perfection and has to be kept extremely sharp, usually by sharpening with a leather strop on a regular basis.
The shavette, however, eliminates these problems by using conventional disposable razor blades, providing an excellent introduction to straight razor shaving for the beginner.
The Cut Throat Razor Starter Kit by Bluebeards Revenge includes everything you need to start straight shaving right away, including extensive instructions for the beginner.
The razor itself is nicely balanced with a good weight behind it and as with all of Bluebeards products is emblazoned with the funky skull and crossbones logo.
The kit also includes a wooden shaving brush, shaving cream, pre-shave oil, post-shave balm and five quality double-edged razor blades, oh, and a pack of sticking plasters, well this is a starter kit and those little cuts and nicks are hard to avoid at first.
