HOW TO USE
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.
Happy with this, just as I am with my Thiers Issard Le brown leather hand strop.
Both well made and at a good price.
My "Le Dandy" arrived a couple of weeks ago and I have enjoyed using it. It was pretty much shave ready straight out of the box. It cuts very smoothly and is easy to control. Definitely artisan made. I can smell the maker's cigarette smoke on the scales!
