Holiday Gift Pick: Feather Double Edge Razor Blades

featherDEbladessmall.jpgFor the safety razor crew, Feather brand double edge razor blades are nothing short of amazing. They are exceptionally sharp, hold their edge for plenty of shaves (a week of shaves), and are well worth the money. They make your daily shave a breeze, and they can also cut through a week's worth of stubble like a hot knife through butter.

So consider stuffing some shaver's stockings with Feather DE razor blades, or stock up for your self!

everymanjackfacescrub.jpgWomen have long known the benefits of taking great care of the skin on their face, and we men could learn from that. Sure, soap gets your face clean, but what about deep-down cleansing and removing dry dead skin?

Holiday Gift Pick: Merkur Safety Razor

merkurbarberpole.jpgFor guys who favor old-school shaving and classic style, a great holiday gift pick is a well-built shaving tool that will last for as long as they do. The Merkur safety razor is one of those classic accessories that do the job well, and look great while doing it.

Merkur safety razors are solidly built and well balanced in the hand, giving the user a great shave with minimal effort. Add to that the affordability of double edged razor blades as compared to cartridges or disposables, and the Merkur is a winner all around.

One of the most popular models is the long handled version (great for guys with larger hands), but the barber pole (my favorite) and heavy duty models are also great picks for holiday gifts for the discerning man.

Holiday Gift Pick: Mangroomer Do-It-Yourself Back Hair Shaver

mangroomerbackshaving.jpgThis year, give the gift of smooth - a smooth back, that is.

One of the most popular manscaping accessories this year is the Mangroomer, a tool which lets any man shave his own back, without having to ask for help from his significant other (or his buddy!)

"The Mangroomer Do-It-Yourself Electric Back Shaver is absolutely the best way to get rid of unwanted back hair. This one-of-a-kind device features a large 1.5-inch blade that enables you to shave larger areas of your back with ease. The Mangroomer's cutting-edge blade design delivers extremely close and smooth results without the potential of ingrown hairs that are commonly caused by straight edge and foil shavers. And with the unique patent-pending design, the Mangroomer opens to a staggering 135-degrees so you can reach all areas of your back from different angles with ease."

The Mangroomer is on sale for just $25.99, down from the regular price of $39.99, so it's a good time to buy!

Blade Buddy Turns Disposable Razors into Reusable Razors

bladebuddy.jpgFor shavers who use disposable razors or cartridges, going to the store to buy more can be a serious investment, as the prices seem to keep rocketing higher. But what if you could use the same razor or cartridge for many times the length you normally do?

That's what Blade Buddy aims to do, to save you money by letting you continue to use the same cartridge for a much longer time, without sacrificing on the quality of your shave.

Here's how they explain it:

"Problem: Every time you shave, the edge of your razor blade gets microscopically bent, rendering your blade "dull" after only a few uses.

Solution: Gliding your razor up the Blade Buddy's micro-honing, grooved surface straightens the bent edge back into alignment, restoring the sharpness of your blade. So one blade gives you a close, comfortable shave for months, instead of days."

If you can get a great shave from the same razor for several months, then by spending $20 on the Blade Buddy, it will pay for itself and then some rather quickly.

Tame That Wild Moustache with the Cowboy Comb

Introducing the Cowboy Comb:

"Once upon a time on the west coast, two young gents by the names of Brian Lee and Chad H. Nelson found themselves disgruntled as they struggled to find a delicate way to tame their wild mustaches. They pondered on different tools that would groom their upper lip blankets just right. Sure there were hair brushes, toothbrushes, even eyebrow combs, but to use any of those on the masterpiece that defines the face? They knew better than to kick a cow patty on a hot day. So as you can see, the Original Cowboy Comb was created out of necessity."

Get your Cowboy Comb today!

Atomically Sharp: The Zafirro Iridium

Just when you thought razors couldn't get any better, along comes a shaving device which is truly worthy of being called 'space age': The Zafirro Iridium.

The Iridium has a solid sapphire blade sharpened to 80 atoms wide (human hair is 5000 times wider than that), one which is impervious to corrosion or oxidation and which stays sharp longer than any other blade. The blade is attached to the handle with precision machined 99.95% pure platinum screws (a purity higher than most jewelry).

The handle of the Iridium is made from, what else, iridium. 99.95% pure iridium, to be precise. An element ten times rarer than platinum, and one of the strongest, densest materials on the planet. In fact, most of it comes from meteorites. You don't get to say "My razor handle is made from meteorites." very often...

The Iridium also comes with 10 years of servicing, cleaning, and sharpening if necessary.

And it's beautiful.

The catch: This is a limited edition - only 99 of these being produced - and the price is $100,000. But for the discerning shaver, that shouldn't be a barrier...

Check it out here, if only to drool over: The Zafirro Iridium
