Old-School Shaving Supplies from Clubman Online

ShavingStuff reader Chuck just wrote in about a site he recommends - Clubman Online. Clubman specializes in old-school shaving products like 100% badger brushes, shave soap cakes, and 1960's-style twin blades. They've got a fine selection of handmade products, including combs perfected by nine generations of Swiss craftsmen, and brushes made on the Isle of Man.

Old Original Shaving Brushes are made for us on the Isle of Man (located in the Irish Sea) by Progress-Vulfix. Made from the finest pure badger hair, our brushes will give years of excellent, luxurious service. Progress Vulfix has been producing shaving brushes for over half a century and is the premier manufacturer of badger brushes in the United Kingdom.... All the brushes are handmade and come in three quality grades - Pure Badger (good), Super Badger (better), and Silver Tip Badger (very best)...

These brushes range from $19.95 to $110.00, so if you can't decide which of the three badgers is for you, I suggest chilling out at and letting your brain unwind.

Nickel-Plated Shave Set From Anthony

Yeah. This thing is sleek enough that we're breaking with our standard right-aligned thumbnail template and plopping it full size right smack in the middle. Remember when I was talking about class the other day? "Objective: To achieve an old school, old fashioned classic shave." Mission accomplished.

This exquisite razor and brush duo reminiscent of 1940's elegance was created exclusively for Anthony Logistics For Men and is compatible with the Gilette Mach 3 Blade. The shave set includes a solid, classic stand, sleek razor and a luxurious badger hair brush; all plated with "Nickel" of the highest quality.

The Mach 3 Set is $250.00 at

New Men's Shaving Products From Zia

What's new From Zia Natural Skincare? Two new men's shaving sets, just in time for the holiday season. Set number one is the Skin Hydrating Gift Set, "designed specifically for men with sensitive or dry skin that is prone to razor burn." Set number two is the Skin Clearing Gift Set, "created for men who are prone to breakouts or razor bumps." Both are only $19.95, marked down from $42.85, and both come with a little travel bag.

I first saw Zia products at our local Whole Foods. I guess that makes sense given their product philosophy:

Our formulas feature whole foods products, therapeutic-grade essential oils & herbal extracts. Zia Natural Skincare formulations only utilize ingredients that provide a benefit to the skin, and that are not harmful. You will never find harsh chemicals, artificial colors, or artificial fragrances in our products.

So why should you care about Zia products? Ever heard of Ashley Judd, Virginia Madsen, Alicia Silverstone or Ben Stiller? I thought so. They all have one thing in common. Great skin. And that's no coincidence. I wonder which shaving gift set Ben Stiller's getting for Hannukah?

Baggallini Travel Razor

RAZ_info.gifHere's a razor for those of you who travel a lot and are cheap. It's the Baggallini Travel Razor, available for the remarkably low price of $6.95. You know what? This thing looks like a piece of junk. "Refills with slide-on tract II blades." Good luck with that. I checked out and after I was through being distracted by the hot chick on the home page I clicked into their products, which look like the kind of thing you'd see in an airport. Wait! There's a special link to an online store for members of the airline industry. Perfect.

If you really want a cheap travel razor, buy whatever's cheapest from Gillette or Schick at your local drugstore and through it in your bag. Done. Problem solved.

Vintage Joe Namath Schick Razor Ad

Maybe it's not as rare as the alignment of the planets, but the convergence of football, holiday gifts, and shaving doesn't happen every day. If you're looking to spice up a bathroom wall with a vintage poster, look no further than this Joe Namath Schick razor ad from 1969. Much more manly than Dan Marino hawking Isotoners, although why he appears to be holding a walkie-talkie doesn't make sense to me.

Only $8.99 plus shipping. Now it's off to dig up some coupons for your local framing store...

More Gift Ideas from King of Shaves

devil.jpgHere are a great assortment of gift ideas from King of Shaves. They've got sets of shaving creams and clensers for men and women, travel sets for those on the go, and a Barnet Box with fish-themed products. Don't tell me you don't have an uncle who loves to fish (and shave). Pay close attention to where these sets are available. Some are only available in the UK, and some are only available in the US.
