Looking to get friends and family into the hobby or just making a valiant effort to show them a better way? Maybe this is for you and your interested in finding out what all the Wet Shaving buzz is about? Or maybe you are just tired of razor burn, ingrown hairs and razor bumps? (If these last 2 sound like you, hop down to "Taking Back Your Face".)

The Perfect Gift for Holidays, Graduates, Fathers and Grooms!

Our kit is fully self contained in a handsome, magnetic clasp gift box, it contains everything one needs to get started; 1 Symmetry Straight Bar Razor, 1 Two Ounce CK-6 Ultra Premium Shave Soap, 1 One Ounce Aftershave/Cologne, 1 Green Ray Tribble Hybrid Synth Shaving Brush, Instructions, and 2.5 months worth of blades!

Did I also mention it looks really slick and need not even be wrapped...just slap a bow on it and BOOM, you just created a NEW Wet Shaver!

I really took the time putting together what I would have loved to have had in my first shave kit...had there been starter kits back then! Seriously, going cheap on this kit was not an option. Meaning, every component is one of our top sellers and customer favorites. Each piece has its own story and history and this kit is just another part of their evolution; the heart of shaving!

What's Inside?

First and foremost, The Symmetry Straight Bar Safety Razor

The Symmetry Straight Bar Safety Razor is a perfectly balanced, hefty, classic 3-piece design razor; beautifully chromed and laser etched with our Logo on the handle!

The handle is knurled to my personal specs, a standard that may be slightly higher than most due to the fact that I am a shower shaver and slipping is never good! This razor is really a terrific shaver for beginners, feels great in the hand, substantial and gives a damn fine shave. The Symmetry is one of our most popular, longest selling razors that you can feel good about gifting to that newb (or newbs) in your life!

Now what can you tell me about Atomic Age Bay Rum Aftershave?

• Zero Clove • 5 Years in development • Charred Oak Barrel Aged • Scent Notes Blended to Balance • Made with West Indian Bay Hydrosol • Hedione Seaweed Extract, Liquid Silk, & Aloe Vera

This is not your grandpappy's drugstore aftershave!

Atomic Age Bay Rum has been over 5 years in the making, possibly 15-20 if you take into consideration my years prior being a Bay Rum wearer and connoisseur! Atomic Age is as fresh as a sea breeze and as spicy as a good rum; Masculine, Legendary and oh so Captain Hook!

Experience the difference, experience the future, experience Bay Rum the way it was meant to be, Atomic Age Bay Rum!

The Shave Soap

Our CK-6, Ultra Premium Formula is made up of some very Exotic Butters, Oils and Waxes from around the world: Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Wax, Bacuri Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Murumuru Butter! Can you guess which are the Brazilian Beauties? [Hint: they sound like lyrics in a samba!]

"And that lather! It truly is remarkably good. I am seriously trying to cut back on shaving soaps, but after this shave I am thinking I somehow need more CK-6 shaving soaps. I’m very impressed. Thick, slick, wonderful lather that leaves my skin feeling exceptionally nice.

I highly recommend the CK-6 formula. Really striking." ~Michael Ham, Leisureguys Guide to Gourmet Shaving

I really can't say much else about how wonderful this formula is, just that if you are coming from the world of shave cream in a can, prepare for your head to explode!

The Green Ray Shave Brush: Stylish~Classic Retro~Affordable

The Green Ray is based on a rare, vintage brush from waaaaaaay back in the day. I really wanted the same feel and aesthetic as the original with just some slight modern tweaks.

That said, rather than do the resin handle in green and ivory like the original was, I opted to give the ivory part a patina type finish. This is actually the same state the color now is on the original in my collection. It really, REALLY adds to the weight of history you automatically feel when holding and using this bad boy!

As for the Hybrid Tribble Synth Knot, I put an equal amount of time into it, if not more! In researching this brush I knew I wanted a high quality synthetic knot that would deliver but you would not need to baby. I mean, The Green Ray is certainly a looker, you are gonna want to take this with you everywhere and by using a durable synthetic knot you are able to do this worry free...but once again, I am getting ahead of myself!

It's pretty safe to say that Synth knots have really come a long way and have really, REALLY made some strides in their overall feel and performance in the past few years. I have been told by many of my customers that our Synths have replaced many of their beloved animal hair brushes, if that tells you anything.

Test knots consisted of bulbs and fans. Eventually I stumbled upon two of the Tribble Synth specimens, one Fan & one Bulb. It was a tough call, so much so I reached out to the manufacturer and asked that they create a hybrid of the two for me to test.

BOOM, best of both worlds blended! The new hybrid rated higher than all the other knots by a huge margin. In short, it checked off all the boxes: Super Soft tips, just the right amount of backbone, a fanning splay yet retained some punchiness, reminiscent of a horse hair knot but didn't tangle, great face latherer and great in a bowl or scuttle.

A really classy, Killer piece of shave tech for sure that any newb would be proud to own.

A Great Gift to Yourself or Anyone...Try Something Different!
