Q: My boyfriend is wanting a Cut Throat Razor and accessories for his Christmas, HELP!! What does he need? I have a budget of £200. Can you recommend something for me please?

The above is from an email we received today and it is typical for this time of the year. Luckily, we have a few Cut Throat Razor Gift Sets in stock that sell throughout the year not just at Christmas.

The most popular is The Executive Shaving Open Razor Gift Box Set, priced at £175.00 so £25 within budget. First things first, these razors are very difficult to source in the numbers we require, right now we have the famous Muhle RM30 razor for the set but that may change to the French made Thiers Issard 5/8 razor or a German Erbe depending on availability. Whichever razor you get, rest assured it will be top quality and either German or French made. 

What do you get for £175.00? The Executive Shaving Company Cut Throat Razor Gift Set includes all that's needed to start shaving right away:
- Handmade Rosewood Presentation Box with brass fittings

- Muhle RM30 German Cut Throat Razor
