    Just buy the kid a walking stick to beat the ladies off if you are giving him clubman. You will be a grandpa within months.

    My advice is to try the safety razor first. The learning curve is much steeper with a "cutthroat" razor.

    Some online reviews:

    "Yesterday I received my bottle of Clubman after shave. As I opened the bottle and took the first whiff I knew this was an aftershave for a man's man. The smell took me back in time as I clearly remembered it's scent wafting through the air the day the entire varsity pom's squad lost their virginity. Within a couple hours of the first application I found myself in a crushed velvet chair, wearing a smoking jacket sipping single malt scotch and eating a 3 pound platter of bacon with Ron Swanson. "

    Safety razors ainít expensive or fancy. A razor cost $20 or less. Less than a gillette refill. Or you can spend a lot. You can get blades for as little as a nickel and shave all week with it.

    America got hoodwinked in the 90ís. The multiblade cartridge razor is a solution looking for a problem.

    My complexion is a lot better without the ingrown hairs from using a 6-bladed POS.

    For my son I accepted a generous offer to have his brush, razor and stand made with custom wood handles and post by a member on here. He ordered the kits and is turning the wood for them as we speak.

    For myself I went with the Rockwell stainless 6s. A bit pricey but I figure it's the Smithy of safety razors. Came with 100 free blades. The model I chose has 3 bases with 6 different settings so you can choose how aggressive you want it.

    I can see these getting pretty addicting if you're a collector of such items. One is all you need but man there are a lot of options out there from new space age to old school vintage.

    I doubt I'll ever shave my beard completely off but I do keep it trimmed, shaped and my neck shaved.

    If I shaved my beard I'd look like a bald 16 year old with crows feet.

    Might give a cheapy safety razor a shot when my stash of Gillettes run low. If I like it I’ll splurge and on a good’un

    Probably ought to ease him into Feather blades. They are really good, but really sharp. New safety razor shavers are likely to mire down too hard if they are use to multi-bladed razors. Do that with Feathers and you'll look like you lost a knife fight with a ninja.


    Some easier but decent ones in my opinion:

    Derby
    Astra Platinum
    Gillette Platinum
    Gillette 7 O'Clock (any color)
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Personna Lab Blue
    Crystal


    Sharper:
    Feather (thought they seem to dull quickly)
    Bic Chrome platinum



    The only bad ones I've had have been the Walmart Wilkinsons. I could not use them for nothing. Apparently there are at least two varieties of Wilkinson, one better than the other, but not sold at Walmart.

    Don't forget a blade bank to store old razors in unless you have an old house with a medicine cabinet with a blade slot in it.

    Many years ago one of the razor companies had a model that the handle vibrated. Well coming back through customs on our honeymoon from Jamaica, the inspector hit the end of my travel bag just right and that razor just went to buzzing and vibrating. The look on her face when she made eye contact with me and my wife was priceless. She just giggled and and waived us through.
