 Believe it or not. There are a few books out there based on wet shaving! I have read several of them and would like to you all about it

    • A short book based on Gillette’s life
    • Features his other endeavors as well as wet shaving
  • The Man and His Wonderful Shaving Device: King C. Gillette by Russell Adams
    • Features Gillette’s history as well as the evolution of the company

    • Very easy to read and understand.

Tune in next week as we go over some books for the collector


Training Tip of the Week: Using A Sponge While Straight Razor Shaving

 Using a sponge to remove lather while shaving with a straight razor is a great technique. It keeps the blade clean and minimizes the risk for damage by noting bringing the blade close to the faucet.

This video debuted when I first started wet shaving. It’s one of the best (and most relaxing) i’ve seen to date.
