We are proud to use and sell shaving kits and products by Edwin Jagger and Baxter of California at our Toronto and Markham, ON barber shops.
While a high-quality razor is essential to a good shave, that razor can’t perform to its potential without some assistance. Shaving kits are as numerous as the various types of razors on the market, and just as important to a good shave as the razor. There are usually three principal pieces to shaving kits on the market today: razor, shaving brush, and a bowl. This may vary slightly by manufacturer.
Shaving kits worth their time will include not only a well-made razor, but also a brush to apply the shaving cream. The brush has the added effect of clearing dead skin away as the lather goes on, making the shave even closer. Brushes can be made from practically any source, but most agree that badger hair is one of the best possible choices. Badger hair tends to absorb water better than other options, so it can produce a richer lather.
Brushes “exfoliate the skin and clean the dirt in between the hairs of the beard. The badger brush also helps stand the hairs up, preparing them for a close shave. All Starks shaving kits come with badger brushes made form real badger hair. We do not carry any synthetic brushes. The grade of hair ranges from best badger to silver tip – the highest-quality badger hair available.
At Starks Barber Company, we are proud to use and sell shaving kits and products by trusted retailers such as Edwin Jagger, Kings Crown and Merkur. Give us a try today!
