Shaving has been an essential part of a man’s daily routine for centuries. With more and more men growing a beard these days, a clean shave is a great way to stand out from the crowds and attract some respectable attention. If you want to go after the clean-shaven look, finding the right razor is crucial for a comfortable, close shave.
Above the Collar offers a range of double edge safety razors that are designed for precision and durability, as well as a selection of related products like shaving cream, shaving brushes, and replacement blades. We stock products from some of the biggest names in the shaving business, like Captain Fawcett’s, Baxter of California, Muhle, and Supply.
Double edge safety razors are called ‘safety’ because they are designed to protect your skin from nicks and cuts. They have a guard that surrounds the blade, preventing it from getting too close to your skin. This makes them ideal for those with sensitive skin, as well as those who are new to shaving. These are an ideal alternative for someone looking for an easier option than a ‘cutthroat’ straight razor, but looking for a closer shave than a cartridge razor.
A double edge safety razor features a double-sided blade that is able to provide a close shave while still being safe to use. They come in a variety of handle shapes and sizes to suit your individual shaving style, as well as a range of blade types to suit your skin type. These are a great way to insert a little personality into your morning routine as you mix and match your shaving accessories.
To get the most out of your safety razor, it’s important to pair it with the right shaving cream or soap. Shaving cream is an important part of the shaving process as it helps to lubricate the skin and prepare the hair before you begin shaving. If you need something a bit better than your average supermarket aerosol foam, Above the Collar has formulas for sensitive skin, as well as thick, rich creams that provide a luxurious shaving experience.
A high-quality shaving brush is also essential for a comfortable shave. Shaving brushes help to lift the hair and exfoliate the skin, making for a closer shave. Above the Collar offers a range of shaving brushes that are made from natural bristles, as well as synthetic bristles. You can still use your hands, but a brush aerates the foam to make it even creamier — and boy do you feel like a man when you use one.
Once you’ve found your perfect razor, shaving cream, and shaving brush, you’ll need to stock up on replacement blades. It’s important to use a sharp blade and replace them often as a sharp blade can cause irritation, redness, and razor burn if left unchecked. Above the Collar carries some of the world’s best selling replacement blades from brands, including Astra and Muhle, that are compatible with almost all of the razors in our selection.
Whether you’re new to shaving with double edge safety razors or you’re looking for a new razor, Above the Collar has everything you need for a close, comfortable shave.
