Lee Mill, Devon - The Shaving Shack is delighted to announce that the firm is now stocking the Goodfella safety razors.

Available in either chrome or satin black, these double edge safety razors have been designed for the stylish shaver.

”The Goodfella Safety Razor is a product of today's technology. Through computer aided design and selecting modern durable materials the manufacturer has rejuvenated the old school, classic shaving razor,” said a spokesperson for the firm.

”The Goodfella Safety Razor is perfectly balanced allowing the weight of the razor to deliver the blade at the optimum cutting angle resulting in a smooth and close, yet mild shave.”

Weighing 57g each, and made in New Zealand, these razors are hand finished. Each head is checked three times during production ensuring strict quality control.

The razors have also been a hit with the media, with The Australian Telegraph saying: "The classy, Sean Connery-Bond style of the Goodfella Safety Razor makes it look straight off the silver screen”.

Luxury Magazine added: “This razor makes shaving fun again”, while Tone Magazine said it "prefers the feel of blade on bristle than the lawnmower-like grind of an electric shaver".

Hans Henrik Appel, from leading shaving blog The Shaving Detective, was also full of praise for the Goodfella safety razors.

He wrote: “The Goodfella is a classic chrome Double Edge razor in a clean, almost clinical, design. At first, it struck me as a very small razor, but it actually handles extremely well and is perfectly balanced. The Goodfella was my first attempt at a DE razor, and I must say that it impressed me with its great looks and the gentle shave it provides.

”At first, I thought that the short and slick handle would be slippery and hard to hold once it got wet. It turned out to fit perfectly in my hand - and never slipped a bit! The centre of balance was perfect for me, but I will not guarantee that it will fit anyone just as good.

”Like it goes for any other razor, it really is a matter of preference. The Goodfella is not an aggressive razor - in fact, you have to try quite hard to cut yourself with the open comb design.”

The Goodfella safety razors are priced at £59.99 on the Shaving Shack website.
