TheCloseShave was started because of a shave I received in Tropea Italy. I was on the tail end of a vacation and was in desperate need of a hair cut and shave. The entire experience was fantastic, the barber and his shop had a classic feel to it, you could feel the sea breeze coming in through the open door, but the one thing that stood out was the almond scented shave cream the barber was using. It was different than anything I had at home.

When I returned home I set out to find almond scented shave cream, that search lead me to the world of wet shaving, which in turn lead to TheCloseShave.com. I set up the website to educate myself and to help educate others.

Eventually my interest in classic shaving and my interest in woodworking lead to TheCloseShave offering a selection of handmade shave stands and more recently brushes that I have turned in my shop.

I hope you find the reviews and article helpful and informative, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop is an Email.
