1965 Slim Gillette Adjustable Razor Review

Company: Gillette
Product: 1965 Slim Gillette Adjustable 
Made Possible By Benjamin Moran

I always wanted to try a 1960 Gillette vintage razor the razor of my birth but I could never find one that fit my budget or was the right year. I gave up a long time ago until I got this email from Benjamin Moran. He wanted to donate some shaving soaps and brushes for our giveaways. He also added that he just got back from revamping a 1965 Slim Gillette Adjustable and would I like to review it for the group and without hesitation, I said yes! My dream had come true.

Billy Jealousy Whipped Shaving Cream

Company: Billy Jealousy
Product: Whipped Shaving Cream

Many years ago I subscribed to Luxury Barber Box and I would always get something from the company Billy Jealousy. Since I didn’t know the brand too well I collected whatever I didn’t want to use in a box along with other things I was going to try at a later date. Flash forward 5 years I just found that box again and I will be giving the Billy Jealousy Whipped Shaving Cream a try.

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.
