What are the best selling, most popular ‘old school’ shaving products? I’ve been wondering that for a while now. I mean, a lot of people “in the know” recommend certain products over other products, but are they really getting purchased? I decided to try to find out.

If you asked me three months ago if the type of shaving brush makes an appreciable difference in the quality of my shave, I’d probably have said no. For the dozens of shaving soaps, creams, after shave balms and splashes – not to mention razors and blades – that I’ve tried since I began this wet shaving journey in 2011, I had only used five shaving brushes until Mantic and I had a chat about this very topic.

King Of Shaves recently announced Hyperglide, a new razor that does not require shaving cream, gel, foam, or soap. There’s no classic lubrication “strip”–the the entire face of the cartridge is coated with a lubricant that is activated by water. It just came out in the UK and will shortly be available in the US at select Target stores and target.com. I was lucky enough to get one of the first units available in the US and I have been using it for a while now.
