Cut Throat Shaving hits the bulls eye for local Chef


Anton, DJ Chef at The Black Horse, Sidmouth called in for a nice refreshing cut throat shave to get the New Year off on the right note 😉

Anton likes to pop in for a regular cut throat shave because he loves the whole process and argues quite rightly that he’s worth it!


Starting with a beard trim to get rid of the bulk.


It’s then time to relax and await the pre-shave cream…


Which when combined with the hot towel allows your hair follicles to rise, the antiseptic to clean the dead skin and the aromatherapy oils to ensure a most relaxing start to your shave experience.


Time for the shaving cream to be applied for the 1st of 2 shaves…


There’s that cut throat razor … stand well back 😉


Keep those pinkies out the way!


Only a small surcharge for a nose job 😉


Shaving oil applied to enhance the cut throat blades performance for the 2nd shave… also helps hydrate the skin post first shave.


Time for the 2nd shave…


Cool towel applied to seal up the pores and fluff up the skin.


A little face massage and hey presto, the shave is done…


How was that for you Sir?

Thank you.

Silvertip Badger Shaving Brushes are my favourite…


There are many different styles of shaving brushes ranges from a few pounds to over £600!

We stock badger shaving bushes, black badger shaving brushes, boar bristle shaving brushes, synthetic shaving brushes, horses tail shaving brushes but my favourite is the Silvertip badger shaving brush.

The reason for this is the lather it creates… fine hairs and even finer hooks on the Silvertop badger hair make for a smooth, creamy lather that applies beautifully, making for a more enjoyable shave.

While we have a few shaving brushes in the online shop, I carry a much greater range in the shop… come in and see us on Church Street…


If you are buying for Christmas we have Vouchers the perfect stocking filler which can be spent on hair cuts, shaves and grooming products in store… why not put it towards a nice Silvertop badger hair shaving brush 😉

And as well as our normal retail opening hours we will also be open till 8pm on Friday 2nd, then Thursday 8th, 15th and 22nd of December if you are too busy during the day to pop in.

Thank you.
