How to look after your shaving brushes and razors


Our Sheffield made folding knives are carbon steel and you should look at the care of knives page on for details of how to care for those knives. The open razors are mainly stainless steel.

The shaving brushes should be dried after use and hung upside down to dry off. The Britannia teak is a hard dense wood which was stored by the Royal Navy for sixty years to use as replacement decking on the Royal Yacht. It has matured and hardened and I cannot think of a better wood for use in some of our products. With some of our products which use ancient or heritage wood we provide a letter telling you about the wood. The description alongside each product will tell you whether it comes with the letter.

Remember with all edged products whether they are scissors or razors to keep them out of reach of children.
