'HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!' Outstanding review by Independent Blogger!

Posted by Paul Harker on

Male Grooming Blogger BeautyKingUK concludes the 'stylish' Get Stroppy will 'save you money over the long term'!

A blogger specialising in reviewing male grooming products has spent the last 3 months road testing Clever Shave's 'Get Stroppy' and here at Clever Shave Towers, the verdict has blown us away .

We are especially pleased that the positive feedback genuinely comes from an independent viewpoint, with BeautyKingUK stating:

'I can assure you that I’m being incredibly objective, and if you think I can be swayed, well folks you really need to read more of my stuff - if something is crap, I’ll say it’s crap...'

BeautyKingUK went through a rigorous process of reviewing every aspect of Get Stroppy's effectiveness:

So, the strop should remove build up from blades and also straighten them. After the usual two shaves with a disposable razor it had already started to blunt and wasn’t cutting through my beard without snagging and causing much colourful language! While the blades looked already straight there was a large amount of beard stuck between the blades and I could see a film on the blade.

A couple of firm glides up the strop and not only had most of the blocked hair been removed but the film had also completely gone on the tips and for about half of the blade. It’s the tip and the sharp edge that I was concerned about and was pleased to see that it appeared like brand new. Win! After I started to shave with the blade no more snagging and the shave was totally even. 

And and this point, BeautyKingUK went the extra mile and really put Get Stroppy to the test:

To give this a thorough road test I stuck a pair of tweezers between the blades on a Mach 3 head and moved them out of position. Had I tried shaving with the blades positioned as they were in the head then I’d have been in accident and emergency within minutes and possibly suffering from blood loss. Running the wonky head up the strop while applying a fair bit of pressure did indeed pull the blades back into place so that I could shave without fear.

BeautyKingUK ends his review by concluding:

It’s doesn’t cost a lot and looks very stylish hanging in the bathroom by the sink and for that I’m truly thankful. If you use disposables you should look at picking up one of these, and if you are looking for a gift for your other half that will also save money over the long term then look no further. Top notch people, top notch. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Needless to say, reviews like this validate our mission of 'Giving the world a better shave' and drive us forward to promote our innovative, hand-crafted range if products.

Finding something new and unique is almost impossible – and our shaving strops are a stylish addition to any bathroom!’

The Get Stroppy and The Artisan are made using stitched, hard-wearing DenimXtra as the surface for cleaning and straightening razor blades, to give a perfect shave, day after day. Get Stroppy and The Artisan come in a unique gift box, with a Gifting Card and a personalised message.

Clever Shave has launched with a stated mission of ‘Giving the World a Better Shave’. Clever Shave is an online ecommerce business which will sell newly developed, money saving, shaving strops.

At the centre of the Blackpool based Clever Shave business are two unique products, Get Stroppy and The Artisan.

Both products have good eco-friendly credentials (using them sees fewer razors thrown into landfill) and both are animal friendly and approved by the Vegetarian Society in the UK.

The Get Stroppy is made from stitched, hard-wearing DenimXtra with quality faux leather top and tail. The Artisan is rustic and 100% hand-made, using sustainably sourced rubberwood with stitched, hard-wearing DenimXtra and comes complete with a travel bag made from authentic Thai fabric.

Director Ramsay McLellan explains ‘At the heart of Clever Shave is saving money. Our shaving strops cleverly clean and re-align your razor blades, giving you a better shave and extending the life of your blade, giving you a better shave, day after day.’

Get Stroppy and The Artisan come in a unique gift box, plus customers get to choose a unique Gifting Card and have a personalised message included all included in the price.

Ramsay continues ‘It’s that time of year, when we all start to scratch our heads and wonder what we can get for Father’s Day. Buying something unique, useful and new seems to get harder every year! We think Clever Shave’s shaving strops are gifts that Dads will use every day, will help them stay looking clean cut, will save them money and is great for the environment. Everyone wins!’

Celebrity TV chef and author Dale Pinnock,known as the Medicinal Chef, has been testing a prototype of Get Stroppy and comments ‘Get Stroppy really works! I have only just replaced my regular razor from two weeks ago, and I’ve been using it daily. You are seriously on to something here!’

Approved by the Vegetarian Society

Posted by Paul Harker on

Clever Shave are proud to announce that our two core products, the Get Stroppy and The Artisan has been approved by the Vegetarian Society.

'Taking the old fashioned Barber's Strop, which was essentially a strip of leather, and reworking it for safety razors in the 21st Century and ensuring it was animal friendly, was one of our core goals.' comments Director Ramsay McLellan, 'Getting approval from the Vegetarian Society is vital to the ethos of the business.'

As well as being approved by the Vegetarian Society, the products also have credible claims for reducing the amount of waste going into landfill. The Artisan is also made from sustainably resourced rubberwood.

Ramsay concludes 'The Get Stroppy and The Artisan extend the lifetime of your favourite razor, as well as optimising its shaving performance, which is a great message to take to market, but above all, as a business Clever Shave wants to operate responsibly and ethically, so that everyone can feel good about a nice, clean shave!'
