Everything old is new again. The good, traditional safety razor—what men shaved with before 20-blade razors became the norm—is making a crowdsourced comeback.
 
Safety-razor proponents claim the one-blade approach gives a closer shave and eliminates ingrown hairs. The Baron Shave Kit comes with a hefty stainless-steel razor and synthetic-fiber lather brush that securely attach to a stand, which also holds an integrated soap dish and an extra blade. When you’re done with your ablutions, fit everything together in a sleek, portable hard-shell case.
