As its name implies, the Art of Shaving elevates grooming from a chore to something more luxurious.

For a satisfying shave your skin will thank you for, invest in the 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave: a pre-shave oil, shaving cream (pictured), badger hair shaving brush and aftershave balm. Get the total package, designed to provide an optimally close shave while warding against razor burn, nicks and cuts, for $120 (available unscented and in scents like Lavender and Sandalwood). Invest in a nickel-plated engraved razor ($200, shown with badger hair brush, $250, and stand, $160) for a full arsenal. More modern mountain man than clean-shaven? Art of Shaving also carries products to keep facial hair and skin looking good.
