Sharpen Old Razors with Save A Blade

We've blogged about a few products which claim to extend the life of your disposable razors. Can't say that we've ever really tried one, so we won't claim to be an authority, but I have to admit I'm a little skeptical. Plus, there's the chintzy marketing that often accompanies the products.

Anyway, here's another product called the Save-A-Blade which claims to give you 200 shaves from a single blade. Does it work? I don't know. But if the "As seen on TV" seal of approval carries any weight, perhaps it's worth the $19.95. (Doesn't the phrase "As seen on TV" seem like the "I read it on the Internet so it has to be true" of the 90s?)

Save A Blade's patented Micro Honing technology sharpens old, dull blades to like-new condition saving you hundreds of dollars every year and it works on all types of razors.

There's a little video on the Save-A-Blade webpage which says that it works with all razors, from single blade up to the five-bladed Fusion. For $19.95 it may be worth a try.

Roll Up and Go with John Allan's Rollup

Here's the kind of old-world dopp kit which is worthy of some dignitary or diplomat. Or maybe it's something Indiana Jones might have traveled with. It's the John Allan's Roll Up, and it's the epitome of style.
Custom designed with our trademarked interlocking pockets, the Roll Up is crafted of genuine leather with a protective nylon lining. It's packed with John Allan's 2 oz travel essentials. Includes:
  • Sport shampoo
  • Bodywash cleanser
  • Scrub exfoliant
  • Shave cream
  • Face Moisturizer
  • Plus an additional empty JA bottle

The roll up measures 10 1/4" x 6" which means it will easily fit in a carry-on suitcase. And it's gorgeous, which means you'll be wanting to take it out of your suitcase and show it off. In fact, maybe you'll just carry it on in your arms. Check out the shot below of the Roll Up unrolled.

The John Allan's Roll Up is $245.

Ritual's Razor Rinse Kills Germs Before You Shave

rinse_250.jpgWhat's your morning routine? Quick shower. Towel dry. Pull out the old razor and start shaving.


There may be harmful bacteria on the razor. And when is a better time to invade your face than right after a hot shower when your skin is soft and pores are open. (Cue the bugles.) Ritual's Razor Rinse to the rescue!

Razor Rinse kills harmful staph bacteria, the primary cause of razor burn, unsightly red bumps, and in-grown hairs. We cannot stress enough the importance of this product. Bacteria on the blade must be eliminated before shaving begins. Other products treat bumps post-shave once the harm has already been done. We think that's too late, don't you? Thanks to Tea Tree Oil, Razor Rinse also acts as a blade lubricant for a smoother shave.

If you've got sensitive skin prone to breakout or in-grown hairs, give this rinse a try. Ritual's Razor Rinse is $17 for a 4oz. tube.

Reader Suggestion - DIY Braun Cleaning Solution

beaker.gifShavingStuff reader Dale recently wrote in with a comment about the cleaning solution used by the Braun Pulsonic and several of the other Braun electric razors:

braun should make a economic quart or gallon size container of cleaning solution to refill the cartridges. they're easy to clean and reuse.

until that happens i just clean mine and refill it with 40% diluted alcohol [denatured alcohol not isopropyl] which is the ingredient on the box. haven't had any problems yet with my 8000 series in a couple years.

know how much money i have saved?

While this certainly wouldn't be endorsed by Braun, and it probably voids any warranty, it might be worth a try if you're thrifty and handy. Your inner chemist will thank you.

The Flipper Razor One Razor Holder

Perhaps you precariously balance your razor on the shelf behind your mirror when you're done. And perhaps a misplaced hand can send that and everything else tumbling. Never happened to you? Well, you're better organized than I am. I play pick-up-sticks at least once a week.

Check out the Flipper Razor Holder. A razor holder you can suction to the tiles in your bathroom. Simple. Cheap. Genius.

The Flipper Razor Holder razor holder is $3.99 and comes in blue, pink, and clear white.

The Shaving Stuff 2007 Holiday Gift Guide

holiday_guide.jpgThe holiday season is fast approaching and you've got a list with a bunch of question marks on it. What to get for that special man in your life? Well look no further than the 2007 ShavingStuff Holiday Gift Guide. We've got all he'll need, from creams to razors, books, toys, and more. And even a little something for the ladies.

Shaving Cream
Sure, we all start shaving with foamy supermarket shaving cream. But eventually we aspire to the finer things in life. The brands below offer a superior shave which is close, comfortable, and sublime. A gift set is the perfect way to sample new products, as well as introduce someone to the world of better shaving.
Gentlemen's Refinery - $199
Billy Jealousy - $50
The Art of Shaving - $38
ZIRH - $59
MenScience - $55
Baxter of California - $60
Still not seeing it? Surf on over to the Details for Men gift kit page and see what strikes your fancy.

Cartridge Razors
Once again power reigns supreme. If you're not shaving with an electrified version of a multi-blade razor, it's time to step into the new millennium. Power makes all the difference.
Gillette Fusion Power - $10.99
Schick Quattro Power - $11.99
Gillette M3Power - $15
The Art of Shaving's Chrome Gillette Fusion Power with Spotlight - $150

Electric Razors
There were a couple of new products released this year from the leaders in electric razor technology. If you want the top of the line traditional electric razor, go for the Pulsonic. If you're interested in a wet/dry electric shave, go for the Moisture Shaving System.
Braun Pulsonic - $215
Philips Norelco Moisture Shaving System - $149

Pubic Shaving
Don't even think about shaving downstairs without the proper equipment. Give yourself an extra optical inch with the BodyGroom, or go completely bare with the Cleancut, still the #1 choice in the porn industry.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom - $34.99
no!no! - $250
Seiko Cleancut - $75

Head Shaving
Just like you wouldn't shave downstairs without the proper equipment, you don't want to shave the roof without the proper tools. Get the gear designed for your noggin.
Headblade - $10.99
Sharps Mission: Control Bald Head Balm SPF 15 - $24

Back Shaving
Yeah, I don't want to talk about it either. If you know a guy who needs one of these, just do him a favor and buy it for him. And give it to him while no one else is in the room.

Want to learn proper shaving technique but afraid to ask? Finally, a couple of books which teach you how to shave.
Leisure Guy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving: Shaving Made Enjoyable - $11.95
Sharp Practice: The Real Man's Guide to Shaving by Anders Larsen - £6.50

Nothing beats a little fun in the tub or a soft foam book. Teach your little squirt how to shave like his papa.
Shaving in the Tub from Alex Toys - $6.79
My Shaving Kit foam book from Innovative Kids - $3.32.

Leisureguy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving: Shaving Made Enjoyable - Updated

leisureGuyBook.jpgBack in May LeisureGuy's book Leisureguy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving: Shaving Made Enjoyable came out - masterpiece of pogonotomy. Since then LeisureGuy has been anything but leisurely. He's been busy updating his book and his amazing shaving blog leisureguy.wordpress.com.

And now he's proud to announce that Leisureguy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving: Shaving Made Enjoyable v1.94 is available from lulu.com. (I love the version number. Was this guy a software developer in a previous life?)

You can also get the book at Amazon and Borders, but he recommends you wait until late September/early October if you're going to order from there to make sure you get the latest version. Look for the September publish date as opposed to May. Lulu, on the other hand, has v1.94 in stock now for only $11.95.
