razor travel sheath
At Seaplane we often find ourselves traveling, or, when home, showering at the gym. In a constant effort to carry less, we need the compactest toiletry bag possible.
Our kit includes a quality razor. May we recommend this starter kit from Dollar Shave Club — it’s a $5 steal from Unilever (watch those auto-renewals).
Unfortunately, delicate blades get bent. So folks leave the good one at home, instead relying on cheap disposables that are unpleasant and ineffective. Or we carry replacement blades, which takes us right back to bulky.
On a recent trek we stopped in the beautiful riverside town of Gallipolis, Ohio, where there’s an elegant manufacturer of leather goods called River City. Taking inspiration from the classic barber’s razor sheath, we asked them to make us the most minimal cover possible.
It cossets your blades in soft fuzzy leather while adding almost no bulk. It slides over most any shaving handle, attaching securely behind the razor head with a high quality brass snap. It weighs almost nothing, is waterproof, and, like you, improves with age.
So instead of a cheap disposable, bring your best.
For a limited time, get one free with any shirt or shorts order (due to website basic-ness, check out normally and we'll refund after purchase).
Or just $12.50 by itself, plus $3 for shipping.
