Shaveology Butterfly DE Safety Razor

Company: Shaveology
Product: Butterfly Double Edge Safety Razor


Today will be looking at The Griffin Razor or some call it the Shaveology razor. I had mine ordered late last year but held back until now to do this review. Today in this video I’ll be using it for the very first time. What makes this one different? let's find out.

The packaging is sure attractive. This would stand out on any shelf selling wet shaving apparel. When you turn the box over you get these bullet points of features but nothing I haven’t seen before. The phrasing is new “Modern Gentlemen” “New Breed of Gentlemen” Join the club you get the picture and the last thing was Proud Supporters of Soldiers Angels a nice touch and a worthy cause. Inside the box, you're greeted with a nicely done pamphlet explaining just how to load and take care of the razor. A guarantee between gentlemen (oh brother) from the founder Adam A. such a gentleman he doesn’t even list his own last name. He said he wants you to be 100% satisfied but only guarantees that for 90 days. Next, we have a polishing cloth, 5 Platinum blades, and a leather razor cover for protection and travel, and finally the butterfly double edge safety razor.

Company: Captain’s Choice
Product: Land Ho! Shaving Soap / Aftershave Balm

Going back to last September Scott from Captain's Choice wanted me to review an aftershave called Land Ho!. It has a marvelous scent and worked well but what was missing was the shaving soap. Just a few weeks ago I received this package that not only contained the missing shaving soap but it also had shaving cream and aftershave balm a complete set. Naturally, it included a letter from Scott explaining this fact and if I could continue my review with the now missing pieces. So, I will be using the shaving soap and aftershave balm in this review and save the shaving cream for a later video.

Last Shave of 2020 - Hello 2021

Looking back on all the years past I can’t recall a happier time when I was so glad a year was over. Now that 2021 is finally here good things are about to happen. The covid vaccine is on the way too many front-line workers including Nursing Homes residents. We have a new president which I think this country needs right now and I’m still here after working every day going to Manhattan in March and never stopped I conceder myself lucky that I still had one to go to.

Happy Holidays - A Merry Christmas Shave

Company: Boots
Product: Cool Cologne Shaving Cream


First, I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and try not to break my weekend shaving tradition so I’m back with a Holiday Shave of Cool Cologne a shaving cream formulated by the Boots skincare specialist of Nottingham England.

The packaging reminds me of what James Bond would reach for if he needed shaving cream it has that type of look to it that you might find in Bond’s shaving den.

Shaving & Talking #4 - Flowers In The Dark

Company: Dr. Jon’s
Product: Flowers In The Dark

I sometimes forget to revisit things I’ve enjoyed reviewing in the past. I came across one that falls into this category called Dr. Jon’s Flowers In The Dark I believe this was released around Halloween in 2019. The art on the label is pretty impressive and the description of the scent is a little disturbing when I first read it. It’s a play on lavender but it read something like this and I quote “Lavender upfront but then fades and all that is left is a coffin wood and ozone, a disturbingly pleasant combination”

Wickham Shaving Soap -1912 Cashmere

Company: Wickham Shaving Soap
Product: 1912 Cashmere

As we inch closer to 2021 which could not come any quicker if you ask me I’m getting more calls to do reviews from product manufacturers which tells me companies are more confident that we're moving in the right direction. I also just got word that Fine will be releasing the new line called 21 Century Shaving Soap. This will be interesting comparing it to the original classic formula.

Today I’m using something from Wickham Shaving Co. Called 1912 Cashmere. This scent is just fantastic Top Notes: Bergamot, Basil Leaf, Heart Notes: White Patchouli, Base Notes: Oak Moss. My tub has been dormant for some time and needed blooming to wake it up and that seems to do the trick because it lathered up so well like it was brand new.
