Strictly Man's Arctic Shave Butter
#1
Strictly Man sent me a tube of their new Arctic Shave Butter to try out.

It is a non-foaming, clear, shave butter. I am not a fan of this type of product, but I said I would give it a try. Today, I had my first shave with it. It is pretty slick. It has a lot of oils in it. I continued with my cold water shave routine. I did two passes and got a great shave. I didn't have to face lather or clean my brush, so I saved a little time. The shave butter was just about gone after the second pass. It was pretty easy to rinse off after the shave. Because it is clear, you have to feel your way through the shave. My guess is that this was aimed at multi-blade cartridge shavers.

GEM Flying Wing
GEM Stainless
CWR
Granddad's Blend AS

The Arctic Shave Butter is a non-lathering product. Two passes and touch ups with the GEM Flying Wing with a GEM Stainless blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...


Here's the shave.

I passed mine on, as a head shaver I want to see anything but skin while passing the razor over stubble!! Shave was OK, but not what I'm accustomed to. I don't use creams much anymore though.

I believe I would have to pass on that one. Lathering is one of my favorite parts of the shave.
Good video though, Jim!

It would be handy once in a blue moon on the second Tuesday of the week when you are really in a rush to get a shave in and head out the door. Bit I pass on the pif. And as already stated good video though.

Yep. Not my cup-a-tea.
