In the days when a real shave meant a trip to the barbershop and offering your neck up to the straight-edge razor, Bay Rum is the stuff they slapped you across the face with afterwards. Sure, it helped stop the bleeding a bit but, more importantly it soothed and cooled a freshly shorn face. If you’re a man who appreciates that zesty snap in an aftershave, rejoice, this old stuff is still available in its original formula. Slap yourself with it.
There is definitely an art to shaving with a straight razor. But, in the case of this razor from Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, the tool itself is the work of art. With a handle made of prehistoric woolly mammoth bone, these made-to-order straight razors also feature a miniature photograph, which is seen through a Stanhope lens built into the sheath. Hopefully all these artistic features don’t distract you from the task of shaving yourself without cutting your own throat.

Get 150 shaves out of one blade with the Razorpit.
