Busy morning, but perfect shave with Frankenrazor: Wolfman Tech

with 9 comments

20 Mar 2015

What a great shave. The Oatmeal Stout by Shaver Heaven is another great shaving soap—these soaps are seriously good, and I’m going to get more, I can tell. Australians, you are lucky: Otoko Organics, Occam’s, and now Shaver Heaven. Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements carries them here. The fragrances PAA has in stock:

  • Vertiver and Neroli
  • Forbidden Forest
  • Hubba Hubba
  • Black Amber Lavender
  • Oatmeal Stout
  • Mayan Musk
  • Plum tea
  • Honey Ale
  • Ginger Snap
  • Spiced Mahogany
  • Cinnamon Rum

Fragrance descriptions here.

The Wet Shaving Products brush produced a really excellent lather immediately, and then I set to work with my Frankenrazor: a Gillette Tech head holding a Feather blade and riding on a Wolfman Razors handle.

Works like charm: feels good, shaves good, looks good. BBS in three comfortable passes.

A splash of Fine’s l’Orange Noir aftershave, and the day looks good.

UPDATE: Shave Heaven soaps also available at Shave Revolution and Italian Barber, but IB is out of stock with most of those I wanted—but still had Chocolate Delight.

  3. BTW, Shave Revolution is a terrific site. They’ve been on-line for just 4 weeks. Very glad to discover them. Thanks.

  4. So does ItalianBarber now. Looks like ShaverHeaven soaps are becoming more popular.

  5. And now that I’ve used them, I can say, “No wonder.” They really are great. I’m still looking for a tub of G.D.M., if you have a pointed.

    I suggested to Shave Revolution that, so long as they’re importing from Australia, they probably should carry Otoko Organics shaving soap… (This is totally a magnanimous gesture on my part: I still have an untouched tub. 🙂 )
