Jagger's cut throat razors and strops are of the
highest quality available. Designed purely for
the experienced user, they provide the closest
perfect accessories for your razor and shaving
brush. Edwin Jagger's shaving bowls are made of
porcelaine and are designed to hold a variety
of traditional English fragranced soaps. Our high-quality
strop is for use with our cut throat razor above.
For a more comfortable shave ...
1. Hot water The first essentials to a perfect shave
are water and warmth. When hair absorbs hot water it becomes
softer and easier to cut and with warmth the skin and facial
muscles become relaxed, making shaving so much easier. Thus
the best time to shave is after a bath or shower. Soaking
a folded flannel or small towel in hot water and wrapping
it around the face for thirty seconds can also achieve this
2. Preparing the face Those who desire a particularly
smooth shave (or who have sensitive skin) might wish to
apply a glycerine-based Skin Food; this protects the skin
and helps the razor to glide smoothly across the face. (This
is also good preparation for those who electric shave.)
Massaging the Skin Food against the growth of the beard
also helps to lift the beard in readiness for the lather
3. The lather Applying shaving cream or 'lathering
up' can be done with either the fingers or a shaving brush.
Using your fingers is a very successful way of preparing
the skin and beard for wet shaving as well as revitalising
the facial muscles. The shaving brush, filled with a good
quality badger hair, will lift and moisten the beard, preparing
it for the shave. We recommend traditional English glycerine
based shaving creams and soaps which help to keep the skin
and beard warm and wet during the shave. Alcohol based shaving
foams and gels have the opposite effect, dispersing moisture
and cooling the skin, which can cause irritation whilst
shaving. If you use a brush we recommend Edwin Jagger shaving
brushes. Each brush is hand made and densely filled with
a minimum of 13 grammes of Best or Super badger hair (Super
badger is softer). Edwin Jagger brushes are designed for
comfort and guarantee many years of quality shaving.
4. The razor Always use a quality razor with the
sharpest blades available, avoid disposable razors with
low-grade steel blades that bend when shaving. Select a
blade that suits your technique; cut-throat and safety razors
for the competent and well tutored wet shaver, Gillette
Sensor for those who require precision shaving around the
moustache, beard and sideburns and Gillette Mach 3 for wet
shavers wanting an extra smooth shave. The revolutionary
Mach 3 triple blade has an advanced lubricating strip, which
indicates when the blade no longer provides a close shave.
We recommend Edwin Jagger shaving razors, manufactured to
the highest standards, assembled by hand in Sheffield, England
and incorporating the latest Gillette shaving systems. Edwin
Jagger has an international reputation for designing and
manufacturing perfectly balanced shaving razors, each providing
a secure and comfortable grip during wet shaving.
5. The shave Make sure you use a sharp blade that
has been warmed in the sink or under hot running water.
Shave with the grain of your beard, or move the blade sideways
across the growth in awkward areas such as the chin and
under the nose. Never shave against the grain as this pulls
the skin in the wrong direction causing small cuts and 'grazing'
to the skin and is the most common cause of 'razor burn',
ingrown hairs and shaving rash. Rinse the face thoroughly
with cool water to close the pores and pat the face dry
with a soft towel. Use an anti-septic Alum Block to treat
any small nicks or cuts, which occurred during shaving.
6. Caring for the skin A good wet shave exfoliates
and cleanses the face, leaving smooth new skin and a healthy
clean appearance. Newly exfoliated skin needs to be protected
from the elements, so for healthy skin it is important that
men use an after-shaving moisturiser or Skin Food. Products
containing alcohol should not be applied to the skin immediately
after shaving as this may inflame the skin and cause dryness.
For best results cologne and other fragrances should be
applied to the 'hot spots' behind the earlobes and on the
sides of the neck. (Skin Foods and moisturisers are perfect
for the electric shaver.)
