    The OneBlade Review

    This Oneblade safety razor is the finest single edge safety razor I have ever used. I absolutely have loved shaving with this highly refined precision instrument. It will rival any of your go to safety razors. This shaver comes well thought out and ready for a lifetime of use backed by a warranty that makes it clear. This product is the concept and passion of Porter Stansberry who had a personal goal and commitment to excellence. That passion shows all the way through with OneBlade from the initial un-boxing to your first shave...

    Semogue Owners Club Two-Band Shaving Brush

    Semogue shaving brushes from Portugal have earned a loyal following among wet shavers around the world.  All Semogues are handmade with high standards of craftsmanship and handle designs that set them apart from brushes produced in other parts of the world.  Over the past few years, Semogue has offered several Owners Club model brushes that feature the finest materials and finest workmanship the brand has to offer.  I was excited to see how Semogue’s new two-band badger brush stacked up against other two-band brushes that are filled with this sought-after grade of hair.

    Shavemac Series 167 D01 Silvertip Shaving Brush

    Most of the Shavemac brushes I have seen in the past featured the distinctive European bulb-shaped bristle loft. While many wetshavers like this shape because of its compact nature, I personally prefer fan-shaped brushes because I enjoy the feeling they provide on my face during my shaves.  While exchanging e-mails with Bernd Blos at Shavemac, I learned that the company also produces fan-shaped brushes and I was immediately interested in giving one a try.  This article takes a closer look at the Shavemac Series 167 D01 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.

    Semogue 1520 Excelsior Shaving Brush

    Badger hair has been widely considered the ideal material for a shaving brush because of its natural water absorbing capability which allows it to absorb hot water and then infuse it into a shaving soap or cream. Recently, however, this paradigm has been shattered by shaving brushes that offer impressive results with other types of hair. Some brushes with horse or boar hair are receiving a lot of praise on the market – and it is easy to see why.  This article takes a closer look at the Semogue Excelsior 1520, an impressive little shaving brush with quality boar bristles.

    The Bluebeards Revenge Corsair Shaving Brush

    Following the successful launch of their breakthrough shaving cream, the guys at The Shaving Shack have added an assortment of accessories to their Bluebeards Revenge product line.  After I reluctantly tested the Luxury Shaving Cream and was blown away by its performance, I was anxious to see if the other shaving products bearing the distinctive skull and crossbones logo would be equally as impressive.  This article takes a look at the Corsair Super Badger Shaving brush, the premium badger brush of the Bluebeards Revenge product range.

    Rooney Heritage Stubby 2XL

    With around 20 shaving brushes in my collection, I don't often become excited about using or obtaining brushes anymore. This was, of course, until I happened to come across a stunning specimen of a shaving brush offered by Rooney.  The Heritage “Stubby” XL series has been released under a Limited Edition run with three different sizes: 1XL, 2XL, and 3XL. Both the 1XL and 2XL have found their way into my rotation, and the 3XL may follow soon. The 2XL is like no other brush I have owned and its performance is definitely second to none.

This shaving brush is -- in one word -- perfect.

    Simpsons Tulip 2 (T2) Two Band

    When the news broke that Vulfix had sourced the fabled two-band badger hair and that they were releasing several sizes with this luxurious hair, I had to be one of the first ones to get my hands on one.  I called Lee from and was very fortunate to grab one from the first batch.  Very lucky, because they sold out so fast once the news broke that many people were left disappointed.

    Rooney Style 1 Size 1 Finest Badger

    Rooney brushes are well known among wet shavers for their quality.  Like Simpsons, Rooneys are made with a much denser knot than most traditional brushes.  I only recently started adding Rooney to my collection and have been surprisingly impressed with how well these brushes perform.
