Kent of Inglewood now does classes!

by Nathan Harley Gareau September 30, 2015

The long-awaited Kent of Inglewood Calgary classes are here! Starting in June at our flagship location, you can take “How to Hone a Straight Razor” and “How to Shave With a Straight Razor”. Both classes involve in-depth instruction from our staff, hands of work, and exclusive deals. The class size is limited to 4 to allow for more personal interaction with our staff.

In “How to Hone a Straight Razor” we discuss the science of sharpening , and work with each of the participants to coach their technique. We also go through stropping, and razor maintenance. By the end, you will leave with blade capable of shaving your face. The class runs from 6-8pm on Thursday evening. Stones and razors are both required for the class, but you can receive a discount on both while attending.

The “How to Shave With a Straight Razor” class helps one to learn the art of straight razor shaving. Our team will work with you on how to use a brush and soap, as well as a leather strop, and demonstrate a full straight razor shave. This is an excellent chance to discuss technique and individual procedure. “How to Shave with a Straight Razor” runs every Sunday from 10-11:30am. After the class, the fee paid for the class can be used against any purchases of shaving gear.

You can check the class schedule in store, via email, or over the phone. We suggest booking in advance since classes tend to fill up in advance. For general information, be sure to chat with our staff.

We hope to see you there!

Maneat Acutis.
