The Spartan, by Dreadnought

Late last year, we talked about shaving with a straight razor, and though some of you are adventurous, others wanted a cool razor that stood less chance of cutting through something vital. If you’re one of these guys, you should consider a safety razor. Meet the Spartan Double Edge Safety Razor, by Dreadnought.

The spartan feels substantial in your hand

Solid construction and ease of use

The first thing I noticed when unboxing the Spartan is that it feels substantial – there’s some heft to it. It’s made from stainless steel, so you won’t confuse it with those flimsy disposables you’re used to using. You can tell they put a lot of thought into the design of the razor, from the handle shape to the Dreadnought logo on the top plate of the cutting head.

Using a safety razor is very similar to how you’d use a disposable, but because of the weight of the razor itself, you don’t have to apply much pressure to get a good shave. Just run it along your face and the razor will do the hard work for you. The gents at ClassicShaving.com can give you more insight into proper double bladed shaving technique if you so desire.

A closer look at the spartan razor

Cleanup and care

The Spartan comes with a razor blade that you can easily install by loosening the top plate and placing the blade on the cutting head. It only takes a few seconds and then you’re ready to go. Since you’re using a double bladed razor, when one side gets dull, you can switch to the other side and continue to get a high quality shave. When it comes time to replace the blade, be sure to take a minute or two to fully clean the razor. Dreadnought recommends you fully dismantle the razor and scrub any stubborn residue with an old toothbrush. Dry, replace the blade, and reassemble, and you’re good to go. This should be enough to keep your razor clean and functional for years to come.

Dreadnought Shaving Cream

If the Spartan Double Edge Safety Razor by Dreadnought seems like your kind of shaving utensil, you can order one for $70 at Smallflower.com. A high quality razor deserves a high quality shaving cream, so consider spending an extra $20 for a 100ml canister of their shaving cream, made specifically for use by problem shavers.

I wish this had been spread around sooner! Looks like it's out of time.

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
