Getting Started with Feather Styling Razors and Blades
Razor haircuttingIf you’re new to razor haircutting and new to the Feather Styling Razor, you might find there are a number of choices to make when it comes to using one. We know learning how to razor cut is already a big task and commitment, so getting the most out of your razor shouldn’t be. In this article, we will be covering the unique benefits of the Feather Styling Razor, the different components to the system and which blades you should be using. But first, a little bit of interesting history. Prior to the 1990’s there was no haircutting razor available that had a guard. While that’s difficult to imagine today, at the time, if you wanted to do razor haircutting you had to use a bare blade razor. This was a problem for many hairdressers because they didn’t want to cut themselves or their clients. To say the least, the fear was real. As a consequence, razor haircutting was not popular. Seeing the need in the industry, JATAI and Feather created a new kind of razor in 1992. You guessed it, the Feather Styling Razor was born. A unique and innovative haircutting razor that not only had a guard, but used replaceable blades. It was a never-before-seen product that hairdressers fell in love with. Today, the Feather Styling Razor is the number one haircutting razor in the world. With 30 years of dependability and quality control, the Feather Styling Razor is used all over the world by stylists and even barbers.  

What are the different features of the Feather Styling Razor?

There are several unique features of the Feather Styling Razor. First off, it’s a system. You can’t just have the handle to make it work. You need the blades and the disposal case too. The brilliant no-touch system allows you to easily insert, remove and replace blades without ever touching the blade! For sanitation and safety purposes, it doesn’t get much better than this. You can watch a video here on how to use the no-touch system. Removing Feather Styling Razor BladesLet’s talk about that disposal case for a moment. The Feather Disposal Case is a container with a slot at the top used for removing and disposing used blades. Once a blade becomes dull, you remove the blades with the case. When the case fills up, you can dispose of it properly to keep wildlife safe. Blades are still sharp once they hit the landfill, so it’s important to make sure they stay out of harms way. You can dispose the case at your local pharmacy or sharps recycling center. The handle itself has an ergonomic design. It’s easy to hold and maneuver. The hole at the end is not necessarily to put your finger in. While you can do this, it can be restrictive. So use it or don’t use it, it’s up to you based on your preferences. The head of the razor is made of Japanese stainless steel. It’s designed in a way that holds the blade snug in place. There is no chatter or movement of the blade in the razor head, making it very easy to use the razor. You may notice there are two types of handles. There is the standard handle and then the detail handle. The detail handle is 1” shorter and designed for detailed work such as razor cutting the fringe or small areas that need attention. Finally, the biggest feature of all is the blades. The blades are what do most of the work. Made in Japan, there is an enormous amount of quality control that goes into making the blades in order to ensure the blades are made properly. It’s due to the commitment and attention to detail that Feather has some of the most dependable and consistent blades on the market. They are made of 100% Japanese stainless steel. The blades are extremely sharp so they don’t snag the hair and they last a long time so one blade goes a long way!  

The Feather Styling Razor uses 3 different types of blades. How do I know which blade to use?

The Feather Styling Razor Standard Blades are the most popular and the first blade to be produced. It has a built-in guard and comes in a pack of 10 blades. It’s the most versatile blade and used for everyday razor haircutting. For most, this will be the go-to blade. Check them out here. Feather Styling Razor SystemThe Feather Styling Razor Texturizing Blades was the second blade to be produced. It has a unique guard pattern that allows you to cut 25% less hair than the Standard Blades. This blade is useful for razor cutting thin hair or if you want texture but don’t want to take off too much hair. It’s often associated with the red handle but the Texturizing Blade can be used in any Styling Razor handles. You can see them here. The Feather Styling Razor Standard R-Type Blades is the newest of the three. This blade looks similar to the Standard Blades but it has less guard. With 40% more blade exposure, you will cut off a lot more hair so be careful! This blade is best for a razor haircutter who is quite proficient in razor haircutting, wants to razor cut more quickly and wants less resistance in the hair. The more guard there is on the blade, the more resistance there will be. So, the R-Type Blades can be viewed as a stepping stone between a guarded blade and an unguarded blade, giving the most freedom when it comes to razor haircutting. If you’re interested in the R-Type Blades check them out here. The Feather Styling Razor and blade system works. Throughout the years, competitors have tried to come up with their own version of a haircutting razor with a guard. But many blades and handles end up being produced in China. The quality and standards are not as high. They wear out faster and don’t hold up as well. We believe the razor is an extension of your hand. Razors are a tool, that if properly made and handled, you can create beautiful art with them. Like a paintbrush, if your brushes are of quality, your strokes are nice and smooth. Your experience as a painter is more satisfying and fun. And your final artwork becomes a masterpiece. You are going to love razor haircutting. It brings creativity and art to haircutting.

The Best Fingernail and Toenail Clippers on the Market
One usually doesn’t think about nail clippers too often, but they sure come to mind when your nail tears or if your nails are getting too long and need a trim. Having a good quality nail clipper can surprisingly give a certain satisfaction you wouldn’t expect. It’s easy to pass off a nail clipper as just a tool you need to trim your nails, but have you ever used a nail clipper that delivered a subpar experience? For example, have you ever tried to use a nail clipper that required a lot of pressure to cut through the nail or that left jagged nails? It’s not an uncommon occurrence. For many people these are their biggest gripes. And who wants to deal with frustrating and unpleasant experiences. Even the smallest of tasks (such as clipping your nails) shouldn’t give you a headache or another thing to be annoyed with. Nail clipping is something one does pretty frequently so it’s important that whatever nail clipper you’re using will stand the test of time. The good news is there are some high-quality fingernail and toenail clippers that can deliver sharp, clean cuts with minimal pressure. While having an awesome nail cutting experience is not on the top of everyone’s list, it is a small task that can be made much more pleasant with superior tools. SS-112 Stainless Steel Nail ClipperIntroducing Seki Edge nail clippers! These are high quality Japanese nail clippers forged with Japanese stainless steel, manufactured and hand-finished by craftsman. What’s really cool is that the makers of Seki Edge, Green bell, are descendants of samurai sword makers who merge traditional samurai sword making techniques with modern ones. As you can imagine, these nail clippers have sharp blades. Imagine a samurai sword cutting your nails?! That’s pretty insane. Made in Japan, they are quality tested and go through many steps to achieve this perfection. With tools that are sharp like samurai swords, you’re sure to get an awesome experience. When cutting your nails, it’s important to use the proper nail cutter for the type of nail you are cutting. Fingernail clippers are small overall. Since fingernails are generally smaller than toenails, they are made to more easily cut around the fingernails with ease and control. In fact, if your toenails are small too, you can use fingernail clippers to cut your toenails. Fingernail clippers can be useful for cutting children’s nails (both fingernails and toes) as well as softer, brittle nails. For less pressure and for smaller nails, use a fingernail clipper. Seki Edge carries a variety of fingernail clippers. Some have special features such as a built-in nail file or a nail catcher to catch nail clippings. There is also a fingernail clipper with a straight edge to cut nails across. This nail clipper is best for preventing ingrown nails. Most popular Seki Edge nail clippersThe Seki Edge Stainless Steel Fingernail Clipper SS-106 is the most popular fingernail clipper in the line. It’s sleek, sophisticated and works like a charm. If you like a fingernail clipper with all the features, the Deluxe Fingernail Clipper SS-101 has all the bells and whistles you need. It has a built-in nail catcher and nail file. So this all-in-one Japanese nail cutter is economical and provides a lot of value. You can also use a nail scissor, but these are less common. Nail scissors are used if you want more control or if you are trying to shape your nails a certain way. When it comes to cutting toenails, a heavy duty toenail clipper is best. Since toenails are often much thicker and wider than fingernails, a stronger and larger nail clipper may be needed. Toenail clippers feature larger, wider jaws and are overall larger than fingernail clippers. The Seki Edge Stainless Steel Toenail Clipper SS-107 is the most popular Seki Edge toenail clipper and can generally do the job. Another nail clipper that is on the rise is the Seki Edge Stainless Steel Nail Clipper SS-112. It’s gained massive popularity due to its fantastic cutting ability. It also has a built-in nail file on the top of the lever. It’s heavy and delivers a smooth clean cut. A thick nail can be addressed by either a heavy duty nail clipper or a nail nipper. Nail nippers have very strong curved blades, sharp cutting edges and are especially useful for very thick nails. While toenail clippers for thick nails are available, sometimes they are just not strong enough to cut through the thickest of nails. With a nail nipper you can steer your cuts for more cutting control and they have very powerful jaws that cut the nail from the side as opposed to the top and bottom. This makes cutting a very thick nail much easier. For special circumstances such as an ingrown toenail, use a nail clipper with a straight edge or an ingrown nail nipper. Ingrown nails should be cut straight across to prevent the nail from growing into the corners of the skin. Unique Ingrown Toenail NipperIf the ingrown nail is also very thick, try the Seki Edge Ingrown Nail Nipper. It’s a unique nail nipper where the jaws curve outward so that you don’t cut into the nail. Instead, it cuts away from the nail helping you cut straight across. And speaking of special circumstances, if you have difficulty seeing what you are cutting, check out the unique EZ View Clipper SS-105 which has a 3x magnifying glass attached to it. It’s great for older people or people with compromised sight. Each Seki Edge nail clipper gives a precise cut. They have a sharp curved blade on the top and bottom that come perfectly together to create clean cuts. If you’re looking to have nicely trimmed toenails or fingernails, these nail clippers are the best place to start. You won’t go wrong with a Japanese nail clipper by Seki Edge. In fact, it will be the only one you’ll need. While the Seki Edge line carry several different nail clippers, it is a full personal care line with other tools such as nail nippers, cuticle nippers, grooming kits, eyelash curlers, tweezers and more. You can check out Seki Edge tools here. To complement the nail clippers, perhaps pair them with a nail file or cuticle nippers. Even if you get your nails done by your favorite nail tech, you can still do some maintenance at home such as trimming hangnails or filing down chipped nails. And if you’re a DIYer then these are the best manicure investments you can make. If you want a set that includes a variety of manicure tools, a nail grooming kit can be a good choice. From two to nine pieces, Seki Edge grooming kits have a selection of tools important for any manicure. Most of them include a Seki Edge nail clipper. There have been many satisfied customers who swear by Seki Edge nail clippers. They are ranked very high on other popular websites and review sites. And if you’re still not sure if these nail clippers are for you, there are extensive reviews on YouTube about them! That’s right…the social proof on these clippers is plentiful. You have found the best fingernail and toenail clippers on the market here. Give your nails the pampering and TLC they deserve and feel the edge with Seki Edge.

How to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger: Use an Eyelash Curler

How to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger: Use an Eyelash Curler
When we look at someone’s face, many times the first thing we notice is the eyes. They can express sincerity, joy, unhappiness, anger and tiredness. But the eyes also exhibit beauty. In western cultures it is desirable for women to have the appearance of large eyes. A huge part of making eyes look larger can be attributed to how eyelashes make eyes appear more open, wider and brighter. It's no wonder many women look to find ways to learn how to lengthen and curl their eyelashes to encourage this look. Luckily, whether your natural eyes appear smaller or larger, there are several ways to get long eyelashes to make them look bigger. False eyelashes or lash extensions are two popular ways lengthen and thicken lashes. However, eyelash extensions require a makeup artist to apply them and require regular maintenance. The false eyelash route is much more affordable but they must be applied carefully to ensure proper fit. If the glue gets undone, they can easily fall off. They also can look unnatural if the fake eyelashes don’t look real. For a lower maintenance route, using your natural lashes is the way to go. Curling your eyelashes can still make your eyes look larger. But there are some tips to doing so.   Let’s take a deeper look. Here’s how to make your eyes look bigger using your natural eyelashes… First, find the best eyelash curler. Starting with the right tools can make all the difference. Second, you will need to know how to curl your eyelashes properly to get the most curl out of the lashes as possible. Third, you need a good mascara that will emphasize your lashes. Fourth, use a lash comb for separating lashes and removing mascara clumps.  

So what is the best eyelash curler?

Spot Eyelash Curler for the outer corners of your eyesThe best eyelash curler is one that makes your eyes look wider, brighter and longer. It shouldn't hurt you, pull your eyelash hairs, or crush them. If your eyelash curler does, keep in mind this may be related to your technique. The eyelash curler should have a wide opening and should be easy to maneuver. And it should be easy to clean and easy to replace pads when needed. The curler pad should be gentle to the eyelash and leave a natural looking curl. If you want to heat your eyelash curler with a blowdryer, it is best to use a metal eyelash curler or a heat resistant plastic one. Be careful to not heat it for too long as this may burn you. Heating your eyelash curl can lead to a better, longer lasting curl. A spot eyelash curler may be useful for addressing spots on the eyelashes that get missed in the initial curling. This is like a touchup curler for the outer corners of your eyes and should be used after the main eyelash curler is use.  

Next, you will need to learn how to curl your eyelashes correctly.

How to curl your eyelashesTo curl, gently position the eyelash curler so that the eyelash fits in the window of the curler. Be sure to not put the eyelash curler too close to the lash line or the base of your lashes as you might end up pinching your skin. Carefully, squeeze the curler for a few seconds to mold the eyelash. Release the curler and repeat as necessary. Be sure the curler is completely open before removing the curler. You can even turn the eyelash curler upside down to curl the bottom lashes if they are long enough. It's a good idea to replace the eyelash curler pads every 2-3 months to keep bacteria from accumulating and keep your eyelash curler functioning at it's best. To clean the lash curler, use makeup remover or rubbing alcohol to remove the debris from the curler. Do NOT curl your eyelashes after you've applied mascara. This can lead to sticking of the eyelash to the curler which can pull your eyelashes out. When using mascara, look down while looking in the mirror and stroke the brush upwards with the tip of the brush. After you apply your first coat, let it dry. Then apply a second coat if necessary.

If you have clumping...

Using a lash comb to remove macara clumpsYou may want to invest in an eyelash comb for separating lashes and removing excess mascara. This also allows your lashes to look more natural and for opening up your eyes even more. Do not use a pin as this can be very dangerous. A lash pin comb is specifically designed to separate your lashes when your regular mascara brush can't. Keep eyelashes clump free! Lastly, makeup removal is important. If you sleep with mascara on, your eyelashes will get smashed in the pillow and ruin the curl. Also, the mascara can rub off on the pillow and create dark circles around the eye area. The process of curling and applying mascara is something that should be done every morning when putting on makeup. Curling your eyelashes is not difficult or complicated to learn. However, understanding some of the finer details can make your eyelashes look their best and help them to stand out even more. It’s all an illusion and by having the best eyelash curler, using the proper techniques, a great mascara, and utilizing a lash pin comb can make all the difference.

What You Should Know About Using a Double Edge Razor
As a man, getting the perfect shave seems so cliché. But cliché as it may sound, getting a great shave has always been an important result for a man’s grooming routine. It is important to note that getting a great close shave requires a few things: using the right razor, using the right blade and having good technique. For the at home shaver, most men use cartridge razors, electric razors or a foil shaver because they are easy to use without cutting themselves. Men who want a quick shave resort to these kinds of razors. However, the shave is generally not as close as it could be. If you want a much closer shave and have a little more time to dedicate to shaving, it’s best to use a double edge razor. Or if you’re more adventurous, a straight razor is the best shave you can get. If you’re not ready for a straight razor, a double edge or safety razor would be the next level up. There are several convincing reasons why using a double edge razor can be more beneficial. Are you ready to become a wet shaver?

Why You Should Switch to Double Edge Razors: 

1)   You get a better value for your shaver. Double edge blades are very inexpensive and you also have two sides of the blade to shave with which means twice the shaving capacity per blade. Because double edge blades are only composed of a thin sheet of metal, they are easy to produce and package. Each blade is easily under $1 each. However, cartridge blades contain several blades and have a plastic housing that results in a higher cost. Often replacement cartridge blades are well over $2 each and can run as high as $5 per cartridge! Feather Double Edge Razor Blade2)   You can often get more shaves out of a double edged blade. This is because double edge blades are sharper than cartridge blades. Since cartridge blades often contain anywhere from 2 to 7 blades in a cartridge, the blades don’t have to be as sharp because if one of the blades doesn’t cut the hair, the second, third or fourth blade will cut it. On the other hand, a single edge blade will be expected to cut off most hair in a single pass. Of course, the number of shaves you can get out of any blade also depends on the quality of the blade itself. Not all double edge blades or cartridge blades are made the same. For example, Feather Double Edge Blades have a reputation of having some of the sharpest blades around so you can generally get more shaves out of them than other brands. 3)   You’ll likely get less irritation. When you are shaving with a double edge blade, you’re shaving with a single blade. When multiple blades pass the skin multiple times, this creates irritation. Think about it. If 5 blades pass the skin 3 times, this is 15 blades going over the skin. On the other hand, if 1 blade passes the skin 3 times, this is 3 blades going over the skin. Less irritation means less redness, razor burn, razor bumps and better for sensitive skin. 4)   Cartridge blades often get clogged. When there are many blades close together, the hairs get stuck between the blades. Even after rinsing, sometimes the hair just doesn’t pass through. With a single safety razor blade, hair can pass right through after a rinse. Clogged hairs between blades is a big nuisance and can also affect your shaving quality. 5)   Safety razor blades are better for the environment. Since they are single sheets of metal they can decompose. Meanwhile, cartridge blades have plastic around them and plastic does not degrade easily. They sit in the landfills and end up in our oceans. If the environment means anything to you, this could be a very good reason to switch.

Now that you know the benefits, let’s take a look at some other key differences…

Double Edge Razor and BladeThere is a difference in how cartridge razors are used versus double edge razors. Cartridge razors are designed to remove as much hair as possible at one time and a double edge razor works by gradually reducing hair with each pass. Another thing to note is that double edge razors have a higher learning curve than cartridge razors. You’ll definitely need some practice as there is a much greater risk of cutting yourself. However, once you get the hang of it, the results are worth it. When using a double edge razor be sure to replace the blade when they start to get dull to prevent any nicking or cutting. The number of times you might use a double edge razor blade depends on the quality of the blade and the technique. It may also help to designate a specific day of the week to change the blade. While double edge razors can help with skin irritation, there are other ways you can reduce these issues by simply taking care of your skin. If you are tired of razor burn, ingrown hairs, redness and bumps, it’s important that you pay extra attention to the quality of your skin. Sensitive skin can be more prone to razor burn so exfoliate and remove dead skin cells before you shave so you can achieve a clean shave every time.  This also helps to prevent ingrown hairs as exfoliating removes hardened proteins that block the hair follicle.

How to shave with a double edge razor:

1)   To begin, prep the area you want to shave by wetting it with warm water. When it’s wet, this allows the hair to soften and swell making it easier to shave. A good time when this occurs is after a shower. Once the area is wet, apply shaving cream or use a shaving brush. Lather your face using a swirl motion to distribute the cream evenly. 2)   When shaving, shave in the direction of hair growth. Do not shave against the grain, especially on your first pass. Hair grows in various directions on different parts of the face and neck so pay attention to how your hair grows. With thicker hair, shorter strokes should be used. With more fine hair, strokes can be longer. Strokes should not be applied with pressure when using a double edge razor. Getting a Closer Shave with a Double Edge Razor3)   Let the razor glide over the skin for best results at a thirty degree angle relative to the skin. A 30 degree angle is the optimal shaving angle. If you notice the blade is getting dull, rotate the handle and use the remaining side of the blade to shave. Shaving at the right angle can be achieved by using the right razor. Feather Double Edge Razors are designed to easily achieve this optimal angle. You can check them out here. 4)   When there is build-up in the razor, be sure to run it under a stream of water or fill a sink with hot water and rapidly move the razor back and forth to remove the hair from the blades. Repeat this process as necessary until your clean shave has been achieved. Your morning shave should take no more than 10 minutes. 5)   It’s important to note that to get the closest shave, it may be necessary to stretch the skin in the opposite direction of the razor’s path with the free hand so that the razor glides more easily. Stroke downward with the razor. Stretching the skin opens the hair follicle that exposes more of the hair shaft so it can be cut shorter. 6)   Post shave, rinse your skin with cold water to close the pores. Follow up with proper skin care products such as toner and a good moisturizer. And voila! You’ve completed your first traditional wet shave. Getting a great wet shave with a double edge razor is well worth it. It takes some practice and a little know how, but once you get the hang of it, you will love the outcomes and say good-bye to yesterday’s cartridge or electric shavers.

Tired of Low-Quality Tweezers?

Tired of Low-Quality Tweezers?
Take a moment to think about the many tweezers you’ve gone through. You buy a tweezer only to find that three months later down the line it just doesn’t work the same. You ‘sigh’ at the thought of having to get in your car, drive to the nearest drugstore and fork out another $5 for your low-quality tweezers so you can tweeze your unruly eyebrows. Wouldn’t you be satisfied with just one good quality tweezer that will last you a lifetime? It might seem like an insignificant topic, but think about how busy you are and what an extra nuisance that would be. Quality is king and when you experience it, you appreciate it and are willing to pay a little more to avoid the frustrations of low-quality products. Now imagine you’ve gone through your 5th tweezer at $5 a piece. That’s $25 that could have been used to purchase a high-quality tweezer that would last you much longer. You can stop slapping your forehead now. It’s quite ok. We all go through it and when it’s time to do it the right way, you are ready to not make those same mistakes…at least with tweezers. Well, if you are in that ‘place’ and are looking for the tweezer that’s going to give you better hair removal, this is where Seki Edge comes in. Seki Edge has a wide variety of tweezers based on your needs. Choose from slant tip tweezers, point tip tweezers and rounded tweezers, each serving different purposes. But they all share several things in common. They are all made inSeki Edge Smart Tweeze SS-515 Japan using high quality Japanese stainless steel and they are perfectly aligned for easy tweezing. Drug store tweezers are made of cheap metal, nor are they filed and perfectly aligned. They are often made in mass quantities, bypassing any sense of personal tuning. This is why they are cheap. But Seki Edge tweezers are hand filed and perfectly aligned to easily grab hairs. Whether it’s eyebrow hair, chin hairs, facial hair, fine hairs or thick hairs, there’s a tweezer that meets your tweezing needs. Starting with slant tip tweezers, Seki Edge has a variety of choices. Slanted tips are the most common type of tweezer. For example, the Smart Tweeze tweezer has a sleek design and revolutionary functionality to enable a tighter grip on hairs, removing unwanted hair with ease through its ‘spring’ technology. How does this technology work you ask? Green Bell, Seki Edge’s world-renowned manufacturer in Japan, developed this innovation. The slim pieces of metal attach to thicker pieces of metal towards the tip allowing the user to place the strength towards the tip for lasting grip. This combination also prevents bowing of the tip. You will notice it is lightweight yet gentle and powerful in it’s tweezing capability. With traditional tweezers, the user ends up squeezing the tips with extra pressure. Over time this extra pressure creates bowing of the tips. When tweezers bow over time, they bend outwards at the tip leaving very little gripping power. Annoyed by its loss of function, it can leave the user feeling like they just made a terrible investment. Seki Edge has corrected this problem with the Smart Tweeze technology. The Smart Tweeze also has an insert to ensure aligned slanted tips. You’ll just have to click here to see what this looks like. Seki Edge Point Tip TweezersMany people often think that tweezers need sharpening and the reason why their tweezers stopped working over time is that they become dull. The real problem is that the pressure placed on the tweezers makes the tips bow out over time. When this happens they can no longer grip hairs that easily because the tips are no longer closing evenly and firmly. That’s why the Smart Tweeze was developed. Seki Edge pointed tweezers have more specialized functionality. With sharp pointed tips, they are best used for removing splinters, ingrown hairs and other tweezing that requires precision and accuracy. These precision tweezers have precision pointed tips that can reach the smallest and finest hairs. While they are not generally used for everyday use, they do have a special function and purpose in unique case situations. These stainless steel tweezers are durable and long lasting. There are only two point tip tweezer styles in the Seki Edge line. It’s one classic style that comes in either stainless steel or matte black. In any case, these tweezers look sleek and sophisticated. Seki Edge EZ View Tweezers The last type of tweezers in the Seki Edge line are rounded tweezers. These tweezers have rounded tips for safety. Diabetics can find relief in using a rounded tip tweezer as itwon’t poke them or easily cause bleeding. They are also great for using on children or sensitive areas. Closing easily and firmly, they can be used for normal tweezing as well but some prefer the slanted tips for greater tweezing surface area.   In the round tip tweezer category are some unique tweezers. The Scissors Tweezer has scissor-like action to pluck hairs while the EZ View Tweezer has a 3x magnification glass attached to it to more easily see what you’re tweezing. You can check those out here. The point is, if you enjoy buying tweezer after tweezer and the frustrations of low-quality tweezers, by all means, continue to do the same and expect the same. But if you appreciate quality and the satisfaction, check out Seki Edge tweezers. You won’t regret their uncanny ability to pluck those unwanted hairs with ease leaving a clean, fresh, groomed look.

What to Look for in a Men’s Manicure Kit

What to Look for in a Men’s Manicure Kit
Scenario 1: You are out of town. You’ve been away for a few days and then dang it…it happens, you discover a hangnail! Your cuticle skin starts peeling off and it just looks and feels bad. You are tempted to peel it off, but you know that if you do, you risk peeling off too much dead skin which could lead to bleeding, making everything worse. On the other hand, if you don’t, it continues to hang and peel away. You know it’s hanging there and that constant urge to pick at it can’t be stopped unless you eliminate it once and for all! Scenario 2: Or what about the times when you are away from home and your nail chips out of the blue. It splits on the side and keeps getting caught on your clothes, scratches your skin and leaves you annoyed. Every time it catches on something, it rips just a little more. So you get the urge to use your other fingernails to break it off. You know that if you don’t break it off, it will continue to drive you nuts. If you do, it can really create a jagged edge and leave your nail looking and feeling funny. So you continue to pick at the nail and all of a sudden you find yourself ripping off the top of your nail. No joke. This stuff happens. It’s in these instances when you wish you had a manicure kit. A manicure kit is essential because nail and cuticle issues happen to everyone at the worst possible moment. And if you don’t take care of them right away, it can leave you with some annoying problems. Not only will your nails and fingers look horrible, but it can be very painful and could possibly lead to infection. So what’s the answer? Finding a manicure kit with tools to fix these problems on the go is a simple and satisfying solution. But a manicure kit will also be useful for preventing such issues from happening in the first place. Keeping nails groomed on a regular basis should prevent most random nail issues. So what should you look for in a men’s manicure kit? There are many out there, so choose wisely. Travel Manicure KitFirst, it’s important to determine how it will be used most. If you want a travel manicure kit, will it primarily stay in the hotel room or will you carry it with you in a bag as you are out and about? If you are keeping it at the hotel, at home or in a glove compartment, there are fewer restrictions on size and weight of the kit. If you are planning on carrying the manicure kit with you in your man bag, you may want to keep your kit on the smaller and lighter side. The type of kit you choose should depend a lot on your duration away from where your kit is stored as well. The longer you are away, the more tools you may wish to carry in order to address any and all nail issues that could happen. Second, after you’ve determined how you will be carrying the manicure kit, you need to decide what tools you want in it. What manicure problems do you usually come across? Chipped nails? Hangnails? Dry overgrown cuticles? As a man, do you need to trim those nose hairs or ear hairs? Keep all of your hygienic needs in mind when deciding on a kit that’s right for you. Third, decide the quality of the tools to be housed in your manicure kit. Higher quality tools may be more expensive, but they last longer, have better handling and usually do a better job than cheap ones. Generally, if they are made of quality materials such as stainless steel they will be more durable and last longer. Fourth, but not least, the case itself can make a big difference. Protecting your tools is important especially if you get high quality grooming tools. You will want to keep them protected. A leather case is always a nice option but isn’t necessary. A nice pu leather case can be sufficient. Small elastic straps or something that holds the tools firmly in place are a nice feature as well. You don’t want your tools in a case where they are freely moving around in a bag as this may lead to damaged tools over time. Keeping your tools in a sturdy travel case will be key to ensuring the longevity of your tools. It is suggested to start with the essentials in your manicure kit. At minimum, it is recommended to have a fingernail clipper, toenail clipper, nail file, cuticle nippers or cuticle trimmer. An optional tool but still very important is a cuticle pusher. Each nail tool should have a purpose for you. Outside nail tools, it’s important to carry other related grooming tools. In this instance you may wish to ‘upgrade’ your manicure kit to a grooming kit. These related tools could include cuticle scissors or make-up scissors for cutting hangnails or small hairs, nostril scissors, mustache scissors, a shaving razor and/or eyebrow tweezers depending on your needs. Having the proper grooming tools in a men’s manicure set can save you the irritation of unsightly nails and painful hangnails. It also save you frustration and can quickly solve your nail needs instantly so you can avoid some of these minor nuisances we encounter each and everyday. One less nuisance is another moment to be content. If you’re looking for a high quality manicure kit for men, check out Seki Edge. Known for some of the best grooming kits on the market, these kits are super cool. From the creators of the samurai sword in the mountains of Seki, Japan, Seki Edge combines centuries-old craftsmanship with modern technology to create the world’s finest stainless steel beauty and grooming tools. Each Seki Edge tool gives a satisfying experience that is difficult to replicate. Beautifully and ergonomically designed, Seki Edge tools make grooming much more enjoyable. And, with tools being made in Japan, you know you’re getting something of quality. Seki Edge Craftsman Luxury 6-Piece Grooming KitThe most popular grooming kit is the Seki Edge Craftsman Luxury 6-Piece Grooming Kit SS-3103. This set includes the two most popular Seki Edge Nail Clippers, the Stainless Steel Fingernail Clipper (SS-106) and the Stainless Steel Toenail Clipper (SS-107). These are highly rated and leave sharp, clean cuts. No more jagged edges! It also includes a stainless steel nail nipper to cut thicker nails, a nail file to smooth out nail edges, a tweezer to pluck stray hairs and nostril scissors to trim unruly nostril hairs. These are all essential tools a man needs for basic grooming. It’s housed in a beautiful synthetic leather case which makes it perfect for travel or storing in a bathroom drawer or car glove compartment.

Choosing the Right Cartridge Shaving Blade for You

09 August 2021

If you shave with a cartridge shaving razor you’re probably used to using just one type of cartridge blade that works in your handle because all of the big shaving razor brands generally create handles that use one specific blade. But what if you could choose different cartridge blades for the same handle? Feather Safety Razor Co. based out of...

Choosing the Right Cartridge Shaving Blade for You
[caption id="attachment_26594" align="alignleft" width="253"]Feather F3 Cartridge Shaving Razor Feather F3 Cartridge Shaving Razor[/caption] If you shave with a cartridge shaving razor you’re probably used to using just one type of cartridge blade that works in your handle because all of the big shaving razor brands generally create handles that use one specific blade. But what if you could choose different cartridge blades for the same handle? Feather Safety Razor Co. based out of Japan has developed a cartridge shaving razor that can use three different types of cartridge blades. An ingenious idea, Feather developed a line of cartridge razors and blades called ‘F-System.’ There are two razor handles and three different cartridge razor blades in the F-System. Each blade can be used in either of the handles. Before going any further, it’s important to note that Feather is no newbie to shaving razors. They have been developing razors and blades for decades. And while their main shaving blades are double edge blades (aka safety blades) and straight razor blades, cartridge razor blades are not far off from their expertise. Over the years, Feather blades have developed a reputation of being the sharpest blades around as well as being high quality and having unique innovative tools. Their cartridge razor blades are no exception. The two F-System razor handles are the F3 Razor and the Butler Razor. Both of them can use the F3, MR3 Neo and FII Neo blades. Let’s discuss each of these blades in more detail so you can see which blade might be right for you.

Feather F3 Cartridge Shaving Razor Blade

F3 Blade:

The F3 Blade is a triple blade cartridge that is meant for reducing irritation and giving a comfortable shave. It has some really unique features in order to achieve this. First off, it features a wavy guard along each blade which reduces pressure on the skin to give a more comfortable shave. Then, each blade has independent suspension to glide along the surface of the skin. And lastly, the blades have an SiC ceramic coating that helps reduce irritation and razor burn. The coating also gives increased durability. The F3 Blades are perfect for anyone who struggles with irritation, razor burn or razor bumps. The F3 Blades come in a 4 or 8 pk.  

Feather FII Neo Cartridge Shaving Razor BladeFII Neo Blade:

This blade is the most economical of the three. While it is the most affordable, it doesn’t mean it skimps on function. This cartridge has two thin, sharp blades and a one push cleaning feature. While it may be simpler in terms of features, it still gives a great shave for less. If you’re less worried about irritation and more concerned about costs, the FII Neo Blades are for you. The FII Neo blades come in a pack of 10 blades.  

Feather MR3 Cartridge Shaving Razor BladeMR3 Neo Blade:

This triple blade cartridge will give the closest shave. It features a semi-circular guard and metal roller for a safe and comfortable shave. While it is less forgiving than the F3 Blade, it still provides a comfortable shave. However, in order to give a closer shave it may not be as good at reducing irritation like the F3 Blades. The MR3 is the most aggressive of the three blades and comes in a pack of 9 blades. If you’re looking to get the closest shave, the MR3 Blade is for you.   [caption id="attachment_26592" align="alignleft" width="246"]Feather Butler Cartridge Shaving Razor Feather Butler Cartridge Shaving Razor[/caption] You might be asking, does the number of blades per cartridge matter? More blades doesn’t mean a better shave. You just need two to three high quality sharp blades in a cartridge to get a close shave. With quality blades, you will also need less passes. It’s a win-win situation. When you start encountering blades with five or even six blades, these could lead to more irritation because there are more passes to the skin so just be aware of this when deciding what the right cartridge handle and blade is for you.   Whether you are leaning toward the F3, FII Neo or MR3 Neo blades, the best part is that you don’t really have to choose! With the F-System razor handles you can use any of the cartridge shaving blades. Use one or use all three! It’s all up to you. That’s the beauty of F-System razors and blades. You are able to customize and tailor your shaves based on what works best for you.   For more information on the F3 Razor and blades click here.
