Castle Forbes first came into being in 1996, at the striking Castle Forbes Estate in Scotland. The brand has humble beginnings and was originally based in a small dairy building within the grounds of the estate. Castle Forbes has, over time, grown in leaps and bounds and now offer a large range of male grooming products and fine fragrances. Each Castle Forbes product has been developed and manufactured to retain its quality. Their shaving cream, by means of example, can only be created in small batches – 500 units at maximum. This ensures that their range of luxurious products always exceed quality standards and provide those who purchase their products with an element of distinction and class.
Leading Manufacturers of Straight Razors
Thiers Issard is considered to be one of the leading manufacturers of straight razors in Europe as well as the rest of the world, making for one of the best classic shaving experiences you can find. Thiers Issard traditionally has used Sheffield silver steel, long considered a superior quality carbon steel.
Thiers-Issard has always prided itself on staying up-to-date with new technologies and in so doing, started using a custom blend of Japanese steel in the creation of their razors. This blend produces an extremely hard steel which produces razor blades that stay sharper for much longer.
Thiers-Issard was founded by Pierre Thiers in 1884. The business was passed down through successive generations until 1985, when the company transferred to Gilles Reynewaeter, a Frenchman absolutely enamoured by straight razors.

Karl Indigne (pictured) is the man behind the Baume.Be brand. He tells us he has very sensitive skin and has been using a particular alcohol fee balm after shaving. One day Karl could no longer find that balm so he made his own and so began the Baume.Be story.
Karl is based in Belgium, his products are designed for men with sensitive skin but men who appreciate good quality shaving products will also love the Baume.Be range. Executive Shaving stock Baume.Be Shaving Cream and Aftershave Balm, both are good sellers with high repeat sales which is a good sign.
I haven’t used Baume.Be for a few years and even then all I did was use the cream and balm three of four times to make sure they performed well and gave me no negative reaction and then they were given to a colleague or him to try. So, a week or two ago I bought myself a Baume.Be Shaving Cream and Aftershave Balm (staff discount is a blessing) and gave them a try out.
