Shaving doesn't have to be a chore. Luxury razors feel sleek and substantial in the hand as they combat stubble in style. Established in 1805 by the Duke of Edinburgh, Truefitt & Hill offers ebony, faux horn or imitation ivory Wellington handles ($110; truefitt andhill.co.uk). Caswell-Massey, America's first perfumery, is older than the country but belies its age with a futuristic-looking chrome razor ($125; caswellmassey.com). The Art of Shaving has designed a classic razor, stand and badger-hairbrush set out of sterling silver ($3,400; theartofshaving.com). But nothing tops the platinum-handled damascene razor by Hommage, which resembles the tool used by Sweeney Todd, and features 4,500 layers of handcrafted steel ($30,000; hommage.com). Now that's cutting-edge.
