This knot might need a little more explanation than the other ones. Originally, this is a necktie knot. It is a good option for fall and spring, as it is more loose and does not offer any additional warmth.

To tie this knot, drape two unequal lengths around your neck. Wrap the longer one around the shorter end. Tug the longer end through the back end of the knot that is already forming. Pul until it’s snug, but not too tight. This knot will stay put unless you untie it.

Shaving Tips

Picture source: http://www.howtoshaveblog.com

Annoyed by the speed that your razor blades manage to go dull? You might not realize the influence you can have on keeping your blades sharp. We will provide you some tips and tricks how to make shaving a more pleasant experience.

For example, razor blades particularly do not like to be used on a dry skin, punishing you by speeding up the process of becoming dull. The beard has not been softened yet and this has a negative impact on your razor blades.

For your own comfort and to make your blades last longer, you should always follow these rules:

– When you wake up, your face is puffy with overnight fluid which will keep you from getting a close shave. We recommend to wait at least 20-30 minutes before shaving.

– Before you can start shaving, we would advise you to take a shower.  As we recommend you to wait for 20-30 minutes in the morning, it would be a great idea to shower first because showering will provide you with a perfectly relaxed skin and soft beard hair. If you’re not a morning shaver and/or shower taker, try to always soak your beard in warm water or steam for at least 15 minutes before you shave.

– Be parsimonious with the shaving soap/cream/gel or whatever product you’re using. The aim is to have a thin, even layer on your skin covering the hair. It’s not about how much product you use, but rather about how you apply it onto your face. When you use your hands, make a gentle circular motion. Make painters strokes when using a shaving brush.

– To clear out lather and hair, rinse your blade after every few strokes. Use hot water for better cleaning. Moreover, a hot blade will cut the hairs easier and more smoothly than a cold blade.

– Take a little time to clean your blade after using it. Rinse it in hot water and carefully dry it with a towel. To complete the process, rub a little alcohol on your blade to prevent any remaining moisture from oxidizing your blades.

– Also, keep your razor in a safe and dry place. Don’t leave it on the counter in the bathroom while your showering, because the humidity can affect your blades.
