Wet Shaving Starter Kit - The DE Kit - Gondolier Shaving Soap, DE Razor & Atomic Rocket Brush - (Optional Alum Block)
Ready to take the plunge into the wondrous world of Traditional Wet Shaving? With the prices of cartridge razors being what they are and the inferior "one size fits all" shaves they provide, millions of Men (and women) are returning back to time tested methods of shaving; Shave Soap, Shave Brush and Safety Razor!
There are also thousands of brands of Double Edged Blades to choose from, so in time, you can find the one that works best for your own unique face, skin and hair type...it doesn't need to be "One Size Fits All"...in fact, it never should have been!
Just Like blades, there are many types of safety razors, soaps and brushes to choose from too giving the consumer a truly customized shave, suited solely for them. You can't get that kind of shave from a cartridge razor, plus the process is quite enjoyable and meditative.
Unlike shaving cream in a can, a shave soap contains no harsh chemicals like propellants and other things difficult to pronounce. There's is also zero waste left over, unlike those metal spray cans that make their way with those plastic razors into the landfill.
Then there's the natural exfoliating action of the brush lifting hairs, hydrating as well as lightly massaging the face in a warm lather, the perfect preparation for a shave; simply luxurious. You don't get this from "goo in a can".
Join the millions of men who have decided to take their shaves back, free their faces and stop being slaves to inferior cartridge razor shaves!

Our DE Starter Kit
This kit is for the complete newb, that only last weeks was dragging a bic across his face...or something like that. This kit is a great gift for a buddy you have been preaching the benefits of Traditional Shaving too, A Graduation Gift, Any Holiday, etc...it's pretty much the perfect gift for any man.
Our DE Kit includes one of our most popular shaving soaps, your choice of one of our hand picked DE razors suitable for all skill levels, 2 packs of DE blades (10 blades total), along with a high quality synthetic hair shaving brush to get you started the right way, at a great price!
Gondolier Shaving Soap: A rich, balanced bouquet of Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine, Oakmoss, Coumarin, Citronella, Juniper & Cedar. The aroma of Gondolier is more than sure to turn a few heads!
The Atomic Rocket Brush is based on one of my favorite, somewhat rare vintage Ever-Ready Shave Brush Handles...ON STEROIDS!
It's true, this bad boy is Burley, weighing in at 4.40 oz, it practically whips up a lather itself! A solid, heavy resin design, a good weight, great balance and feels extremely comfortable in the hand.
DE (Double Edge) Razor: Select from one of three great DE Razors:
- Our Phoenix "DOC" Double Open Comb razor in Nickel Plated Finish
- The Prismatic Razor in Nickel Plated Finish
- The Symmetry Straight Bar in Chrome

Optional Alum Block or "What the heck is Alum bub?"
Potassium Alum is used as a post shave antiseptic, toner and all around magic healing block. Calm your skin down with this block of naturally occurring potassium alum mineral crystals and never look back!
Alum is also a great tool when just beginning to wet shave, aiding you with tingly feedback indicating how your technique is coming along! Too much tingle means you had a rough shave and still need to focus on your angle or pressure...or both!
Alum blocks can become a bit slippery when wet so our Alum comes with a handy rubber band to help keep it in your hands (not on the bathroom floor)!
Instructions: Alum is amazing, simply wet it and rub all over the area just shaved, simple as that. You can choose to rinse it off after a couple minutes or leave it on. This really depends on your skin type. Alum is also great for acne prone skin....sigh, wish I new of this stuff when I was in high school!
