HOW TO USE
Use the brush to ensure the skin is well protected with a thick layer of shaving cream or soap.
Ensure the razor is shave ready, strop beforehand if required.
Lubricate the bearded area with lather from a good quality shaving soap or cream, for best results use a shaving brush.
For a close shave, we recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
We strongly recommend you watch some tutorial cut throat YouTube videos BEFORE your first shave.
You only need to apply minimal pressure, let the razor do the work.
This razor is extremely sharp, please be careful.
Next day delivery, no complaints whatsoever.
The razor, brush and box and leather strap exactly as described. My son was for once completely happy with this xmas gift.
The razor is beautiful and the brush also looks amazing. I cant get a good shave but I know I've only been trying for a week or so. Back to youtube for more videos on smart asses showing how to shave effortlessly with a cut throat razor I guess.
Bought as a retirement gift for a colleague, his face was a treat when he saw it. Everyone remarked on the quality of the razor, brush and the box is lovely to look at - a real work of art.
I'm rambling now, in a word BRILLIANT.
