House of Knives: Ice 3pc Travel Set with Mach3 Razor $99 (Was $165)

Still looking for a gift for Father’s Day? How about picking up a beautiful nickel shaving set for your father? This Ice 3pc Travel Set with Mach3 Razor is built to travel and is on sale from $165 down to $99 with free shipping.

Let’s face it: most men spend an awful lot of time shaving. For many men, it is a daily ritual while for others they can get away with every second day. This means a lot of time spent with a razor in hand and shaving creme on your face. However, most men will spend their entire lives handling a plastic/rubber razor handle and slathering the creme on with their hands. Enter the shaving kit.

This German made metal razor and brush set will not only improve the look of your shaving kit, it will also turn shaving into a more pleasurable ritual. The brush is made of pure badger hair for a perfect lather on your skin. The glossy metal handle accepts both Gillette Fusion and Mach 3 blades (and any blade like those) so you can change out your blades as necessary all the while enjoying this decadent handle that is sure to last a lifetime.

This set comes with a leather-traveling pouch to stick the brush and the razor into while you are away on business trips. It doesn’t say for sure, but it looks like the head of the brush contracts back into the handle, which would make sense for a traveling set as it would keep the bristles free from damage. The travel pouch also is a good accessory for compact bathrooms or for men who like to stay neat and tidy.

This is a great gift for Father’s Day, an anniversary, or his birthday. It is certainly something that will last him a long time and will certainly elevate his personal care experience. I think I bought my Dad a similar kit when I was younger, certainly not as high quality, but it was appreciated none the less.

If you are an Edge member, you will receive 5% back in Edge Point reward credits on your purchase. Also, as this kit costs $99, you can get it shipped to your house or the recipient’s place for free. Alternatively, you can pick it up at your local House of Knives store free as well. If you are in a rush to get this for Father’s Day, that might be the better option.

House of Knives Canada: 50% Off Scherewerks Sewing Scissors

House of Knives Canada: 50% Off Scherewerks Sewing Scissors

House of Knives is offering 50% off Scherewerks sewing scissors for the little tailor in you.

I am absolutely guilty of using my kitchen scissors to try and trim threads and cut fabric when I should own a decent pair of sewing scissors. Thankfully, a sale like this makes sewing scissors super affordable. These Scherewerks Thread Snips are an excellent basic scissor and perfect for, as the name suggests, trimming loose threads so that your entire shirt hem doesn’t start to unravel. Originally $9, they are on sale for $4.50.

The other set I would recommend is the Scherewerks Tailor 2pc Set that you could buy separate but you end up saving more money if you buy them together. Originally $35 for the set, you will pay just $17.50 when they are on sale. The set includes a matching pair of tailor shears and sewing scissors to complete any sewing basket. If you bought these separately, even on sale, you would pay $20 for them so you save an extra $2.50 by buying the set.

Shipping starts at $10 and is free if you order $99 or more. Because shipping is a bit high for such inexpensive little items, I do suggest checking out what else House of Knives has on sale that you might like. Might I recommend the BOGO 50% off sale on Kussi Silicone Water/Heat Proof Gloves? I also highly recommend you pick up at your local store for free. They have stores throughout British Columbia and Alberta.

House of Knives Canada: Henckels TwinSharp Duo $40 (Save $30)

House of Knives Canada: Henckels TwinSharp Duo $40 (Save $30)

House of Knives is offering $30 off the Henckels Twinsharp Duo. Originally $70, it is now on sale for $39.98.

The duo is a huge improvement on the previous model. This one has the sharpening carbide stage and the finishing ceramic stage in separate slots which makes sure you are not removing steel while you are just trying to give your knife a finishing polish.

Henckels is a well known brand and they are the brand of knives I own in my house. Unlike what some people will tell you, a knife is not suppose to keep an edge forever. That is rather unnatural. That is why almost all knife blocks come with sharpeners. However, this is a far superior sharpener and a more foolproof one for those of us who really don’t have the expertise to be playing with sharp blades.

I just visited the House of Knives store in Vancouver today and really enjoyed admiring the knives and sharpeners in person. The carbide stage in these sharpening tools looks really cool and the duo really isn’t too big but would certainly put a good edge on your knife.

Shipping starts at $10 and is free if you order $99 or more. For something that costs between $25 to $50, shipping would be $14. You can also pick up at your local store for free.
