    Default Australian Shaving Supplies

    To me, living in Australia makes it difficult to acquire all the neccessary equipment to achieve that shaved bliss we all seek.
    Sure, we could go out on a limb and import, and with the Aussie dollar being alright right now it doesn't seem too bad.
    But how long will it last?
    Can we go back to a vendor in 6 months time and expect the price for a tub of cream to remain the same?

    And while importing may seem good at the moment, it is a double edged blade. While we may get a product for a few bucks less, those dollars are going out of our country and into the pockets of the world. Small shave buisnesses are born, and then die quickly because of this.

    What I propose is this shall be a thread dedicated to listing the Australian suppliers of all things shave related (excluding eBay).

    Sure, B&B already have a listing, but it is very old and out dated (many of the sites are down).
    Now, I don't want this thread to seem like an advertisement in any way. If a mod believes I have broken any rules, instead of deleting, please move the thread into a more suitable area. To make it fair also, I will let someone else start.

    So, lets keep it simple, a link with the name and short run down on what they offer. Hopefully it will be concise and help all fellow Aussies.

    Ok, I'll get this ball rolling.

    http://www.himage.com.au
    Used to be a very expensive and limited store. Now has a lot of great things and is relatively cheap (in comparison). Also stocks Mama Bear soaps.

    http://www.mensbiz.com.au/
    An example of what we are used to here. Standard supply of shave items, higher price than normal.

    Shaver City
    Same as above.

    Guys Grooming
    This is for a laugh. Hope you guys in Perth enjoy your $58 straight shave!

    Seconded because of free post

    Men's Biz - Men's Skin Care and Shaving Products.
    Seconded due to free post if you spend $100 or more and the free samples with any purchase regardless of cost

    Shave Shack
    How can we not support our fellow SRP members

    The Razor Shop
    A little bit pricey, but deserving of support since that useless Shaver Shop chain pushed him out of his bricks and morter shop

    If they laugh in your face at the mention of Adams name, just wait till you tell them I sent you.

    http://www.hgpottery.yolasite.com/hg-scuttles.php

    Aussie hand made scuttles. Good reviews in other places and also have other lathering bowls.

    If anyone knows of other places that make shaving bowls/scuttle, please post as I intend on having one soon.

    There is a barber shop in Morwell, Gippsland, Victoria. I can't remember the name of the shop, but the barber who owns the place is called Michael Duval. He has some generic shaving brushes and old style scuttles, but he also sells a shaving cream which is fantastic. Can't remember the name of it, but he only sells one.

    Their stock isn't too bad, good selection of creams and soaps.

    A very disorganised site, but have cheaper Dovo strop paste and strops.

    I'm guessing they call the police and hide their daughters?

    Nah, instead of just leaning forward and going, "HA", in your face at the mention of Adams name, they stand back, point at you with one hand and put the other hand on their belly and go, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA", like that, at the mention of mine... . Then again they might just stand there and look blank for a second, before scratching their heads and mumbling something like, "I think he wrote an article or two for us at some time, didn't he?!"
