[NOTE: A video review of this razor is coming shortly. I will edit this post with the video when it is ready.]
Who says double edge razors are boring? Hot on the heels of Rockwell Razor’s astonishingly successful Kickstarter project–they raised over 10 times their pledge goal–comes another crowdfunding razor project, the Beluga razor. The Beluga razor attempts to be “the best of both worlds” with a double edge razor (with a single edge exposed) that uses a pivoting head like a modern cartridge razor. I was lucky enough to get to shave with the prototype a few times.
Big things are happening in the shaving world! New razors like Rockwell and Beluga, new shaving creams and soaps like Piccadilly and St. James, and a wider awareness of shaving in general (especially traditional shaving) all seem to be coming at once. And Sharpologist is going to be right in the middle of it. But to make sure we’re focused on what you need, we’ve come up with a very brief survey to point us in the right direction (the survey has already gone out to the Sharpologist Newsletter subscribers. If you’ve answered that you don’t need to answer this one too).
The Piccadilly Shaving Company is a new wet shaving brand cut from the same cloth as the established British shaving brands. I got a chance to try their flagship shaving cream along with a few other of their products, all sandalwood scented.
