Growing up in a small town had its perks, like knowing everyone and having a personal relationship with business owners. I was 8 years old when our local barber put me in the barber chair, put that ever-so-familiar barber's cape on me, built up a good, foamy lather, sharpened his straight razor, and gave me a "shave." Of course it wasn't a real shave; he had flipped the straight razor over and pretended to give me a shave. I had been bugging him and my dad for so long that they finally gave in. I still remember the warm lather, the sound of the straight razor on the leather and that feeling of.....the shave......I was hooked. A number of years later my dad put a Gillette Super Speed in my hand and taught me to shave...hooked again! So that's how the story begins. Ever since, it has been a quest for great shave soaps and superior shave brushes. I am not going to get into the "battle of the razor"....to each his own.
Founded in Fort Worth, TX, Coffee Mug Shaving brings to market the best in shave soaps, beard oils, and badger shave brushes. It has taken years to find a great shave soap--one that will hold a good lather, is all-natural, and won't dry out your skin. We have partnered exclusively with Olive Tree Body Care (www.olivetreebodycare.com) to bring you the best shave soaps and beard oils I have found....and they're our friends and neighbors right here in Fort Worth!
Why Coffee Mug Shaving? Well, it is confession time......I'm a klutz! I need something with a handle, and ceramic doesn't fair well against the shower floor, or any floor for that matter, hence the metal coffee/shave mug. And, if you ever get tired of using it for shaving, give it a good rinse and enjoy one of our other favorite passions.....a great cup of coffee!
