A bit part of what makes classic shaving awesome is the top-notch equipment that you get to use. Your razor and brush become an important part of your daily routine, both for the benefits they give your skin and the experience they provide. Caring for them properly can extend their lifespan many times over, and allows you to spend your money growing your collection, rather than constantly replacing your gear.

To prevent this, one should dry the razor thoroughly after each use and rub it with blade oil when stored for prolonged periods of time.
Lordy was a chef in a former life and now captains the ship that is our Ottawa shop. His experience with pomade is second to none and his mustache smells of Tobacco & Rosewood.

Chris' favourite ax is the Wetterling Hudson Bay, the ax that built Canada and he shaves with a Thiers-Isard Snakewood.
