Get a proper shave with the Proper Shave Safety
Sometimes you find certain shaving items that turn out to be a diamond in the rough when you least expect it. You find a certain shaving item and decide to try it and what you expect to happen and what actually happens are two different things. This is what happened when I tried the safety razor from ProperShave.com. Proper Shave is a small wet shaving brand from Vilnius Lithuania that offers wet shaving products. Although they don’t have much on their website ProperShave.com they are working on adding to their growing list of products now. They might not have much right now but what they do have is enough to get started on your way to the Proper Shave.
Truth be told, at first the Proper Shave safety razor might not seem like a lot to look at first but once you use the Proper Shave safety razor you will see that there is more than meets the eye. I like simplicity and the Proper Shave safety razor is simple to use from start to finish. First let’s talk about esthetics, the Proper Shave has a nice chrome finish that gives this safety razor a nice classy look. The top of the safety razor head is branded with the Proper Shave name what a nice touch. The well located on the bottom of the head of the Proper Shave safety razor is deep enough to contain all the unwanted shaving cream and hair that’s shaved away. The deeper well means less gunk in your razor providing a closer and smoother shave every time. The knurling on the handle gives this razor a very functional look and looks are not deceiving when it comes to functionality with this safety razor from Proper Shave.
This safety razor comes in three parts. The head of the razor unscrews from the handle splitting in half, this is where you replace the DE blade. The knurling on the handle gives this razor a good grip even when wet. The one thing that surprised me right away is the weight of this safety razor itself. The Proper Shave safety razor weights in at 55 grams so there is some heft but not to much making this a perfect razor for a beginner. With a more aggressive blade and this would be perfect for a more seasoned wet shaver. I tried the Laser DE blades that came with the Proper Shave safety razor and thought they are a good quality blade, but my heart lies with the Feather DE blade which is more aggressive and is a perfect fit for a proper shave from the Proper Shave safety razor. The extra heft of the razor plus the aggressiveness of the Feather DE blade is a perfect combination for a smooth shave. The handle on the Proper Shave safety razor is longer making maneuverability in those hard to shave areas easy whether you’re shaving your Dome or face.
The head shave was good with the Angle is definitely vital when it comes to shaving your Dome with a safety razor. There are other variables to pay attention to as well. heft of the razor paired with style of blade makes a big difference as well. A safety razor that’s light weight could use a more aggressive DE blade to counter act the weight. A hefty safety razor could stand a little more duller blade and that would work just fine. If you want to be very daring you could use a hefty safety razor with an aggressive DE blade for a very smooth shave. This combination means more attention must be paid to angle and pressure of this combination to steer clear of razor burn, nicks and cuts. The Proper Shave safety razor paired with the Feather or Laser DE blade is a great combination to get the job done. The face shave was just as pleasurable as the head shave was. Overall I was and still am impressed with the functionality of the safety razor from Proper Shave. It really does provide you with a proper shave.
What are my final thoughts on the safety razor from Proper Shave? A proper shave from a simple yet proper safety razor. This safety razor may look simple but simplicity meets functionality and shines every time with this razor. The heft is a perfect weight when it comes to being classified as a beginners safety razor on the Proper Shave website. Pair the safety razor with a more aggressive DE blade and its good for even a more seasoned wet shaver. The well on the bottom of the head of this safety razor is deep enough to keep unwanted hair and shaving cream out-of-the-way and not clogging up your safety razor during your nightly shave. The chrome finish on the Safety razor gives it a nice classy finish along with the brands name stamped on the head of the razor itself gives the Proper Shave safety razor a proper introduction into the wet shaving circle for a permanent stay.
