    Default A Relaxing and Close Professional Shave

    Interesting double edge razor shave technique.
    Diapers and politicians should be changed often, and for the same reason..

    I wonder what blade he is using in the shavette?
    Every shavette and blade I have tried has mangled my face.

    I've never understood paying good money to get a shave at a barbershop,
    It made sense up till Gillette invented the safety razor - a hundred years ago - but time has moved on.
    Cheers,

    It looks like a DE (double edge) razor head on a shavette-type handle. I don't see what this would offer over a regular shavette, or indeed a straight razor, with the exception of finding the angle for you rather than you finding the angle yourself.

    I wouldn't opt for anything like that personally but if he knows how to get the best out of it, happy days!

    I highly recommend the shaving experience at Dunhill Ginza Tokyo boutique.

    Facial steaming, a close shave and facial massage delivered by a lovely lady...I indulge almost every time I visit.
