Male Beauty: Shaving Art worth the price?

April 2, 2009

OK so I had a request, or maybe more so of a complaint, by a friend (whom I will refer to only as Carson Daly) for more man-products 😉 .

I have some things in mind, but I actually wanted to pose a question first: How much would you invest in your shaving tools? I’ve known about The Art of Shaving company for a while now, a high end male-focused shaving essentials brand, and I always thought their sets would make a nice gift, but they’re also pretty up there price-wise (their shaving sets start at $295).

The brush/razor combo looks classic old-school but with their ivory and chrome handles, or black nickel-plated ones like the one shown above, they look almost too valuable to use on the daily.

But maybe I’m wrong — tell me, would you like this as a gift and actually use it, or do you prefer your electric ones? Would you buy it yourself? Just asking as a curious gal who thinks ladies can benefit from this knowledge (guys, we can’t help ya unless we know!), and to appease Mr. Daly — but more the former :).

    this type of gift would be cool to display on your bathroom counter top but the brush is pretty irrelevant since most decent shaving cremes are easily applied by hand. i think another thoughtful gift would be money better spent.

    wow interesting — i thought since it’s so ‘luxurious’ it would make anyone happy; but i get that it’s more about practicality. Thi would probably be more of something ‘nice thing’ to have or show, but not necessarily better.
