What’s Happening In the Wet Shaving World:

New Collaboration with Shannon Soaps and Timeless Razors!!

Recently I spoke with Shannon of Shannon Soaps and she was kind enough to send me a sample of their new soap and splash exclusive to Timeless Razors.

The soap is an updated formula, still with tallow, kokum, etc, but with the additions of goat milk, meadowfoam seed oil, and extracts of mallow and buckthorn.  The scent was crafted in-house — with a base of amber, with cologne and citrus notes.

I enjoyed the soap and splash and found the performance to be even better than before.

Review Series: Dovo Straight Razors

Being a long time straight razor shaver I had to start the review series with a razor that I have the most experience with.
