After years of advocating for straight shaving as a waste-free, better alternative to cartridge razors, we're happy to welcome you into Portland Shave Shop for a hands-on tutorial on LEG SHAVING with Alex. We'll start with the basics like stropping and building lather with a brush, and then moving on to shaving our legs. Complete beginners will feel supported throughout this class, but all skill levels are welcome. At the very least we promise you that you can't spend a Saturday morning like this anywhere else!

What you can expect to learn:

  • Straight Razor Handling

  • Stropping (preparing the razor for a shave)

  • Building a Lather

  • Applying Lather

  • Shaving with a Straight Razor


FAQ:"What if I have my own razor, brush, etc?"
We encourage students to bring their own razors! If you don't have your own yet, don't worry! We'll provide everything you need for the class.


"Can I take this class remotely?"
We will not livestream or post a video of the class. The structure of the class is dependent on in-person, hands-on feedback.
