American wet shaving guru Mantic has been taking part in a Question and Answer session with Shaving Shack visitors.
The veteran of the BadgerAndBlade and ShaveMyFace forums has been offering his expert advice on variety of shaving topics, including slant razor shaving, brush break-in, passes, runny lather and suitable brush types.
Today Mantic answers another two great questions in theYoutuve video below.
Jason asks: “When is the right time to start shaving against the grain? I have been wet shaving for about three years now and double edge shaving for the past two. I have a great routine down, and I am using very good products.”
And Maureen asks: “I know these are really men’s shaving products – but can women use them to shave their sensitive area’s? Opposed to the sometimes painful waxing procedure?”
Mantic will be answering his final question early next week, so please check back.
We are pleased to announce that we are now stocking Coate’s Special Edition Tea Tree and Rosemary Shaving Cream (165ml Tub).
The Gentleman’s Shop confirmed they had purchased the Coate’s company in May of this year.
The first product in the new Coate’s range is this glycerine and coconut oil based shaving cream also contains tea tree and rosemary essential oils.
”This pot should provide around 100 shaves, as it only needs to be used sparingly with a shaving brush, to produce copious lather,” Coate’s said on their website.
Not only is it Paraben free but it also has no artificial colourants or fragrance.
Tea tree oil has been used for many years in both traditional and alternative medicine, due to its natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and as it is now widely used in skincare products, it see med a natural progression to include tea tree oil in our new shaving products.
Tea Tree oil is capable of penetrating the lower layers of the skin with its anti-inflammatory and wound-healing qualities, to encourage the formation of new tissue, following the shave.
“This high quality shaving cream will ensure a smooth shave, as the natural essential oil will help calm the newly shaved skin and is also the ideal solution to reduce any post-shave redness,” Coate’s said.
Coate’s Special Edition Tea Tree and Rosemary Shaving Cream (165ml Tub) is priced at £12.99 on The Shaving Shack website.
We are delighted to have in stock our new The Bluebeards Revenge “Corsair” Super Badger Shaving Brush.
The brush features our distinct skull and crossbones branding and is filled with the very finest super badger hair bristles. To maintain a stiffer backbone we got the experts at Progress Vulfix to pack it with an extra 20% more hair resulting in a luxuriously dense brush that is ideal for cream and soap.

The second comes from Jevon, who asks: “What different blades are recommended for different beard types?”

Next week Mantic will be answering even more questions on wet shaving techniques.
An American shaving expert has described The Bluebeards Revenge™ as a cream that produces an “amazing lather”.
Michael Gugel, a shaving expert who writes for popular website ShavingZone.com, was full of praise for the world’s ‘manliest’ shaving cream.
The wet shaving guru began his review by praising the packaging: “The first thing I noticed was the excellent packaging.”
He added: “It definitely makes an amazing lather. It’s smooth, thick and lubricates great. And unlike some other shaving creams, it’s not prone to air bubbles. As for the smell, it reminded me of Irish Spring soap.”
“Overall, its a good shaving cream,” he concluded. You can read the full review by clicking here.
The Bluebeards Revenge™ is available exclusively at The Shaving Shack, priced at £14.99.
The Shaving Shack also offers free UK delivery on the luxurious shaving cream if bought as a single item.
It was good to see Diane Wood, King of Shaves Master Barber, promoting wet shaving on today’s This Morning show.
The world of traditional wet shaving has certainly seen something of a resurgence in recent months as more and more men dump their hopeless electric and mach3 razors and replace them with double edge and open razors as they search for that perfect close shave.
The premise of King of Shaves’ ‘Shave Sexy’ campaign is to entice the ladies into shaving their partner in a seductive fashion. Whilst I can’t see this as a practical daily event we certainly like the idea at The Shaving Shack.
And we can’t think of anything sexier than a luxurious and rewarding shave by your partner using our very own Bluebeards Revenge™ luxury shaving cream!
During GMTV’s segment, Diane used two young couples to demonstrate how females can shave sexy and seduce their man.
Interestingly, one of the men in the barber chairs was an active fire fighter, who by the fire fighters own regulations is required to be clean-shaven, as facial hair can interfere with the tight seal needed on their respiratory masks.
This was one of the main reasons why The Bluebeards Revenge™ was formulated with its unique hair-delaying ingredient, Decelerine™.
This miracle component contains a mixture of active ingredients that specifically combat tough stubble, reducing the frequency of shaving and depilation and at the same time providing a recovering effect on the skin, making it the perfect choice for ‘Real Heroes’ like fire fighters.
Diane is one of the few female Master Barbers in the world, and having shaved a host of famous faces including David Letterman, Johnny Vaughan and the entire Wasps rugby team, she is now passing on her skills to teach other women how to ‘sex up’ shaving.
Wet shaving guru Mantic has been taking part in a Question and Answer session with Shaving Shack visitors.
Already the US shaving legend has answered questions on brush break-in, runny lather and brush types.
And today’s question comes from Steve. He asks: “Would you recommend four quick and light passes, three slower passes, or try for a very careful two-pass shave for consistent close and comfortable results?”
You can watch Mantic’s answer in the video below.
The Bluebeards Revenge™ premium shaving cream has been given a rave review by a leading Danish shaving blog.
Hans, from popular shaving website Shaving Detective, described the shaving cream, dubbed the ‘manliest on the planet’, as a “classic shaving cream with a nice and subtle scent”.
He went on to add: “In my eyes, the Bluebeards Revenge™ stands out as a well branded, high quality product – with the added bonus of Decelerine™ to help slow down your beard growth.”
He concluded his review by saying he would recommend The Bluebeards Revenge™ as a “very good shaving cream!”
Hans also praised the unique packaging that helps to make the cream the manliest on the market.
“Oh – and by the way… Once you get your own tub of Bluebeards Revenge™, you should remember to read all the recommendations and warnings on the package. They are all priceless, funny and add to the charming presentation of something as dull as shaving cream.”

In May, we managed to get a Question and Answer session with American wet shaving legend Mantic, a veteran of the BadgerAndBlade and ShaveMyFace forums.
The session proved very popular, with lots of excellent entries being submitted. We cherry picked the very best ones and sent them onto the wet shaving guru.
The first question Mantic answered was: “Why do I on occasion find that the lather from a soap is fine on the first pass, really creamy and slick, but when I start to apply with the brush for subsequent passes, it has turned airy and foamy? It is with soaps that I have had good results from before too.” You can watch his detailed answer by clicking here.
Today Mantic answers two more questions.
David asked: “It is assumed that boar shaving brushes need to be broken in. Do badger brushes also improve after a break-in period? I have read occasional mentions of this but have seen no definite discussion on the shave forums.”
And Kevin wanted to know: “Not having much experience with different brushes, is there a particular type of brush that I should use with soaps or creams? Boar hair brushes, or badger hair brushes?”
You can watch Mantic answer both of these questions in the video below.
