I've always wondered - why do they usually make shaving bowls out of ceramic? It seems like such a terrible material to choose. When using a shaving bowl, you want it to do two things really well: (1) Build a quick, easy lather and (2) Keep your lather warm. Ceramic is terrible at both of these. There are really so many better choices out there.

Take marble, for example. A rough-polished marble surface has micro-ridges that are perfect for building a quick, fluffy lather. Even better, marble retains heat three times as well as ceramic. Which means you can get a hot, barber-style lather at home with a marble bowl. And as an added bonus, it looks mighty sexy on your bathroom countertop:

SUPPLY Marble Shaving Bowl

Adding a shaving bowl to our lineup has never been a question of if - just when. And more importantly, what. For months, I've been racking my brains for a proper design to compliment our current shaving products. After prototypes in wood, steel, and ceramic, it finally hit me. Marble.

It seems so obvious looking back. It's durable, substantial, and handsome - three qualities that get any product a free pass to our shop's line up. This bowl is a functional piece that's a complete no-brainer addition to any bathroom.

So how's it work? Simple. You can use it with any shaving soap or cream. First, take a scoop of the cream and transfer it to the bowl:

Make sure to rub the cream into the surface of the bowl (so that it doesn't fly around during the next part). Finally, grab a wet brush and whip up a soft lather. Don't be a baby - really show that soap who's boss.

You know it's ready when it's soft and fluffy. Add water if you need to - and don't be afraid to screw it up. The whole point is to enjoy yourself.

Classic vs. Custom: What's the difference?

Every man is unique, and so is his beard. That's why we've created a razor that is adjustable to match  your unique shaving needs. The Custom Single Edge razor ships with three different shave settings that can be changed out in seconds: Sensitive, Classic, and Aggressive.

The Custom Single Edge

Think of it like the electric clippers at your barber shop - change the blade setting, and change how close you cut. Need an extra close shave today? Just use our aggressive setting - it allows you to mow down the thickest beard with ease. Just a trim? Use our sensitive setting. Once you shave with our customizable razor, you'll wonder why you ever did it any other way.

Not a custom type of guy? No worries! Just order the Classic Single Edge, which includes the classic shave setting. It's our most popular setting, and gives a fantastic shave with zero irritation.
