Straight Razor/What do I need?

Ok, I want a straight razor, what do I need to get started?

This part is quite simple


  1. A SHAVE READY razor. (See next section for more information)
  2. A serviceable strop in good condition, ideally with 2 sides, one canvas and one leather.
  3. A shaving brush to create lather with. (See the Interactive Guide to the Shaving Brushes and the review section to help you decide which one would be best for you)
  4. A top quality shaving cream or shaving soap (See the shaving creams review section or the shaving soaps review section to help you decide which one would be best for you)
  5. A good Aftershave (See the review section to help you decide which one would be best for you)

Optional

  1. A means of keeping the edge sharp (abrasive pasted strop, barbers hone, or other finishing hone)
