The Bluebeards Revenge Scimitar Safety Razor

Email Print PDF

The paradigm of British wetshaving was changed with the debut of The Bluebeards Revenge. This brand kicked Geo. F. Trumper in the arse and gave D. R. Harris and Co. a collective black eye. The modern and whimsical products from Bluebeards maintain the quality of these traditional British brands, but bring wit, sarcasm, and big stamped skull and crossbones to the market.  This article takes a look at the Scimitar, the premium double edge safety razor that bears the distinctive Bluebeards logo.

D.R. Harris Rose Shaving Cream

Email Print PDF

The rose fragrance is one of the staples in traditional British wet shaving.  Well-known brands, such as the famous "3 Ts" (Trumper’s, Truefitt & Hill, and Taylor of Old Bond Street), have included rose in their lineup of soaps and creams for many years.  Interestingly rose was not part of the D.R. Harris & Co. catalog until only a year or so ago.  I was curious to see how the D.R. Harris Rose Shaving Cream stacked up to the competition.
