Baxter of California doesn't joke when it comes to men's grooming. The heritage American men's grooming label has developed the otherwise mundane procedure into a practiced art, complete with unfussy, masculine products that cater to the gentleman's everyday needs. In terms of grooming, there is seems to be nothing more quintessential to men than the act of shaving. Shaves can be done from the comforts of one's bathroom, or performed with delicate care by a barber. While the technology of shaving as evolved into triple, quadruple and electric blades, the tried and true way to do it as men have done for generations daily is the double blade way. The Double Edge Safety Razor was first introduced in the 18th century, presenting men with a more innocuous alternative than cut-throat blades (as the infamous shaving scene from Dracula attests). These are also the classic blades your grandfather and father used, not the Gillette quadruple blades that college fraternity boy waves around. These traditional blades are crafted with utmost attention to quality in Germany, and come packaged in a classy matte black box with a pack of starter blades and an instruction manual. Make your daily ritual less of a chore and more of an art with the DE Safety Razor from Baxter of California.
