The anticipation is over - introducing the luxury STAG Shaving Set.

Get ready for the BEST shaving experience of your life.   

Available with WORLDWIDE delivery before Christmas makes this set the perfect gift for every husband, father or son.

Every item in our set is handmade in England.

Each one of our shaving sets are wonderfully handcrafted over days and designed to give you the closest, irritation-free shave EVER (and it's also A LOT more fun that shaving with plastic).   

Certificate of Authenticity
Certificate of Authenticity

Our backers (you!) are going to each receive a very different and unique shaving set. That's because each set is made from real wood, cut to size, turned and crafted by hand.

We felt every set deserved recognition. That's why each will contain a Certificate of Authenticity, including:  

  • Craft date: The date the set was completed by our expert Artisan;
  • Batch number: We're numbering each one of our sets in the order of which they are made; 
  • Signature: Signed and approved by Founder Luke Whitehead before packaged.
Hand crafted in Britain; built to last.
Hand crafted in Britain; built to last.

Our masterfully crafted shaving products are built to last.   

Crafted with British Yew Wood, the S1 razor is part of a 3 piece matching set accompanied by a Yew Shaving Brush and Bowl. 

Something to be proud of; each shaving piece is individually handmade in a small workshop in Cheshire, England over the course of several days by expert Artisan Steve. Steve is a perfectionist and his many years of mastering his trade shine in every product. The results are truly magnificent with precision in every detail.

The Single Blade

Did you know that using a single blade means a closer, smoother, less irritable shave? The Single Blade is the same blade that your barber uses - and uses for a reason.

Our Shaving Razors use standard Single Blades. Not only are they a significantly better shave, but they're up to 20x cheaper than cartridges at as low as £0.10 (13¢) per blade online.

See section 3. for how and why to use a Safety Razor.

Each Yew Shaving Bowl carries the same design as the S1 Razor and will hold its own unique colour, pattern and pores as it comes from a different cut of the same Yew tree.

The Shaving Bowl and natural Shaving Soap are designed to give you a rich, clean and full lather.   

All of our Soaps are made with 100% natural ingredients for an irritant free shave that is kind to your skin. 

Each set comes with one Soap as standard.

You can choose from three different Soap scents:

  • Peppermint & Tea Tree, 
  • Orange & Cedar, and; 
  • Sandalwood (pictured below).

If you would like additional soaps with your Set, simply pledge £5 for one additional soap or £8 for two.

In keeping with the design theme, the Brush holds a natural curve, ergonomically designed to fit between your fingers and thumb for a comfortable lather with ergonomic grooves.

The brush holds a synthetic fibre, a significantly more ethical approach to the use of animal hair and we believe gives a smoother and more rewarding brush and lather.

We're throwing in ONE YEAR of shaving blades with EVERY "Complete" set! Equivalent to one new blade a week, we've got you covered.  

Single blades can be bought almost anywhere at a TENTH of the price of a plastic cartridge. However, with 50 blades to go at, you'll have plenty to get you started!

Our entire handmade shaving collection is individually crafted over days by expert British Artisans in our small workshop in Cheshire, England.    

We select our own REAL British hardwoods, sourced responsibly and locally to our workshop, before being cut to size and ready for craft.

Each piece is then turned on a traditional wood turning lathe spinning thousands of times per minute and crafted into our iconic groove design by our expert Artisan, Steve.

Using true, natural Yew wood also means every Razor, Bowl and Brush carries its own distinctive pattern and grain. So every set has a completely unique colour and character... No one will own a set the same as yours!

What story will you find in yours?

It's actually really, REALLY simple, fun and MANLY! 

Not to mention the benefits to your skin and to your pockets...

Twist the razor head to open, insert a single blade (of which we're throwing in enough blades to last you ONE YEAR with EVERY complete set!) and re-twist to lock in.   

A better shave

  • The single blade offers a closer cut for a fraction of the price. The result is less irritation and smoother skin. 

Expert craftsmanship

  • Unlike mass produced razors, we're supporting skilled craft. Each wooden handle is handmade, one by one with extreme attention to detail. The result is a work of art, in a class of its own.

Environmentally Friendly

  • Billions of throwaway plastic razors, cartridges and shaving canisters hit land and sea fill each year. Double edge blades are made of steel and can be recycled. 

Economical

  • Double edge blades cost on average 20p, compared to £2.00 for a cartridge. That's 10 times cheaper than what you spend now! To get you started, we're throwing in a entire year's worth of blades!

Plastic is killing the planet's oceans and wildlife.
Plastic is killing the planet's oceans and wildlife.

We're serious about the environment, and we're passionate about change. Throwaway mass produced plastic razors, razor cartridges and shaving canisters are among the planet's most polluting items.    

We want to make better things, using authentic techniques.

Buy a lifetime razor from STAG and help reduce land and sea pollution by eliminating plastics. 

We source all of our woods responsibly and locally in Britain.

Every razor you buy plants a new tree - our partnership and profit pledge with The Woodland Trust means we're giving back to the planet. 

We're also committed to using local British business. That's why all of our products are designed and crafted entirely in England - we're proud to be Made in Britain.

As you can see, we're pretty much there! We're ready to start crafting...

Ready in time for Christmas!
Ready in time for Christmas!

We're currently finalising packaging designs with our supplier. We want the packaging to be equally as luxury so as to compliment the shaving set. 
Once we know more on the packaging, you'll be the first to see some sneak peaks!   

*If your pledge is for a Christmas gift specifically, please do let us know so that we can ensure your set is delivered in time.

Thank you for supporting what we're doing here at STAG - creating luxury authentic things built in Britain and built to last. 

With your help we're making a positive impact to the environment and leading the way to change, too.

We know you'll LOVE your new shaving set and we know you can't wait to start looking forward to mornings again!

We'll keep you updated EVERY step of the way until the parcel lands on your doorstep before Christmas!

Risks and challenges

We've spent twelve months and dozens of prototypes getting things right. Now we're ready to get making!

Since all of our products are handmade, there is a risk that high demand may mean that not all of our sets will be ready by December 2018. If your pledge is for a Christmas gift, please let us know.

If we do hit any speed bumps along the road, we'll let you know straight away.
