That classic chrome-and-ivory shaving set looks great in your apartment bathroom, but, simply put, it doesn't travel. And right now, in the summer months, you're traveling more than not. Along with weekends at the beach, wedding season is in full swing, and no one really appreciates the idea of your unkempt mustache and two-day beard in their sepia-toned photographs. Yet there is no need to subject your face to the razor burn of plastic disposables. Greenpoint-craftsmen Owen & Fred have scoured the bottom of a Louisiana river to reclaim centuries-old Cyprus, fitting them as affordable ($69.00) and quite-portable 1 oz. handles. Originally being moved by loggers downstream to the mill, some of the timber didn't make it, falling overboard and sinking to the bottom. There, the water's minerals changed the wood's complexion, which today gives off a slight green hue. And made for Mach 3 blades, it offers a comfortable, close shave. Throw it in your Dopp kit and don't worry about bumps and cuts next time you're cleaning up before seeing your high school sweetheart or best friend married off. The bridesmaids will be sure to thank you later.
