A man’s morning ritual usually includes brushing your teeth, spraying cologne, and, of course, a close shave. The most effective ways to shave could be the most vintage methods, usually the same used by barbers or those that give a professional shave for a fee. These experts use the “straight” forward approach found with warm cream and straight razors.

The straight edge razor is the ideal tool and role model for close shaving. Nothing beats the fresh feeling of a shave and a hair cut from your favorite barber. Now that feeling can be duplicated by men who want to experience that feeling without the price-tag. More companies are recognizing this allure and marketing these exact shaving devices for the man who wants an “old-school” shave. In fact, some celebrities are now marketing their own variations on the classic razor, trying to appeal to a young, trendy audience.
Shaving tools are a competitive market, but don’t be fooled by the fancy cases and extra blades that some may offer. All your face really needs for the perfect shave is one clean blade, some good lather, and a steady hand. If you want to do it in style, check out some of the vintage replicas available from online grooming vendors that will give you a shave just like dear old dad.
