Travel a lot? This set could be just for you!

Here at The Safety Razor Company we know that a lot of you shavers have sets containing all of your favourite razors, blades, soaps / creams and other shaving goodies. We think that’s fantastic! but we also know that taking a rather big set away with you say for just the weekend, is a bit impractical – especially if you’re travelling quite often.

We think we have the answer then with our own brand Travel Razor Set, which also comes with some quality trimming scissors. The razor splits into four parts, which are all easily stored along with the scissors in a genuine leather carry pouch. This pouch will fit easily into any travel bag, and along with some travel sized shaving items such as the Village Barber Travel Pack, will take up barely any space.

Don’t forget that by liking our Facebook page, you can gain access to a 10% off discount code which is exclusive to Facebook users.

Valentine's Day Gifts for Men

Parker Safety Razor ImageIt’s fairly easy to buy a gift for the women in your life on Valentine’s Day (Red Roses, Chocolate, Perfume and Jewellery all come to mind). But what about when it comes to buying a gift for the Man in your life?

To be honest myself and I’m assuming a lot of men probably aren’t too fussed about getting something on Valentine’s Day, but wouldn’t it be nice to go out of the way and get something wonderfully different for him rather than the go-to box of Chocolates from the supermarket?

So why not treat the man in your life to something special… A nice Safety Razor and Shaving Brush as part of a gift set. This gift will last a lifetime and will live up to be the best Valentine’s Day gift he’s ever gotten.

We have a wide range of Safety Razors, Shaving Brushes, Shaving Creams & Soaps, so why not check it out for yourself, and don’t forget that we offer Gift Options at the checkout!

If you order by the 12th February with a next day delivery service, you will receive the items on the 13th, with plenty of time to hide it out of sight!


Have You Had a Baby Boy?

If the answer is yes and you have had a baby boy within the last year or even the last few – then listen to this.

It is not uncommon for someone to seek a birth year vintage razor to either use in their weekly rotation or simply to keep as a collectable or as something to pass down through the family.

It is becoming more and more popular however, to purchase a Safety Razor when you have a new baby boy, and then give it to them as a present for their 18th or 21st birthday. Typically it would be a gift from the father – as a kind of “welcome to manhood”, but would still be an equally lovely and unique gift from a mother or any other relative for that matter.

The reasoning behind posting about this came from reading an article on a shaving forum which was between new dad’s who had been discussing which Safety Razor to buy for their child. In the end it seemed that quite a few had settled with the Merkur Progress Safety Razor.

Their reason for doing so was not primarily based upon the quality of the Safety Razor (Although we have to say it’s a very high quality model!) but more of the gesture associated with the name of the model – the “Progress”. The Idea behind giving this as a gift when their baby boy turns 18, about the progress he has made through life – what a lovely idea.

If there are any new dads out there reading this why not do the same and purchase a Merkur Progress Safety Razor today.
