Announcement    I build custom, handcrafted straight razors using fully-restored, vintage blades as well as provide everything one would need to get the best shaves they've ever had. My products include custom shaving brushes, strops, shaving cream, shaving soap, pre-shave oil, aftershaves, beard oil, mustache wax and many other items. All of my personal-care products are vegan and animal friendly. And everything is handmade - by me - in little tiny batches right in Albany, New York.

Old Time Quality | Modern Standards

Roosevelt Grooming Company began in 2013 with the goal of combining old-time shaving practices - and quality - with materials and ingredients that are safer and more environmentally responsible than they were in the heyday of wet shaving.

Over the years our line has grown from straight razors, strops and brushes to a full selection of handcrafted, artisan-formulated grooming and personal-care products.

What hasn't changed is our dedication to transparency in materials and practices, and natural, ethically-sourced, plant-based ingredients in all our body care products.

Our commitment to environmental responsibility led us to our choice to eliminate single-use, and unnecessary plastics from our product line, and offer plastic-free refills for any items with plastic pumps or droppers.


"The Barber's Hour"

As president, Theodore Roosevelt would set aside an hour each day to meet with reporters. It was an hour of the plain-spoken candor Roosevelt would become famous for. Reporters were encouraged to ask any questions they liked, and received honest, straightforward answers. It should come as no surprise that this hour, the "Barber's Hour," as it came to be known, took place during Roosevelt's daily shave.

Over the years our world has changed. Our morning rituals have become rushed and routine and our lives have followed suit. The objects we surround ourselves with are increasingly mass-produced, sometimes heartless commodities. We don't need to look very far to see the effect such a drab, uninspired existence has had on us and on the world.

But what if you could bring a bit of Roosevelt's time and honesty back into your day? What if you could start with your own "Barber's Hour," (even if that "hour" may only last ten minutes or so for many of us)?

When you hold a straight razor that has been crafted with quality materials and first-rate design you're going to feel different. A work of art made with skill and love feels more luxurious, meaningful and honest in your hand, and against your skin. And when your shave is done and your day begins, it's the kind of feeling that you'll bring with you. Because as countless men like Roosevelt have learned, and are still learning, an honest day begins with an honest shave.

Our products are:

• Artisanally designed and formulated
• Produced on demand and in small batches
• Made with natural ingredients
• Vegan and animal friendly
• Proudly made in New York State
