A must, but handle with care! Review by: Ben 30/09/2016

An Alum block is a must have for wet shaving. However they are very prone to breaking apart if accidentally dropped, even from a slight height (hands above sink). I am yet to completely use one of the GFT blocks without dropping it 10-20cm above a bench top only to have it break into several pieces. Handle with care.

Utility knife of shave gear. Review by: Samuel 30/01/2014

Although the alum block is primarily used as an aftershave and to help stop cuts, it has a could of other uses.

If like me, you sometimes struggle for grip, wipe your wet fingers across the alum block. This causes the finger to wrinkle up, providing extra grip.

Another use is gauging how good or bad the shave was. If you have a bad shave, using the alum block will burn. A lot. It will also clean up any nicks you have.



Added tip: Put your alum block in your freezer before use. Pull it out after your shave, and rub it over your chin when you have rinsed your face with cold water. It will feel amazing.
Still undecided Review by: simon 7/07/2013

After reading the reviews I decided to try this out in my regular shaving routine.

Unfortunately on my second use I have found that I have some in-grown hair and a bit of a break out.

I stored it in my stone shaving bowl and noticed a strong residue. A possibility is that I may be alergic to the aluminium in the mineral block.

So I will try again now my skin has healed with a light wash to remove any residue and see if that reduces the irritation on my skin.

love to recommend it but at this stage I would say depends on your skin type.
A Little Pain Goes a Long Way Review by: Travis 5/02/2013

Nothing good is gained for free, and this alum block is proof. Miraculously clears up nicks and cuts of just about any size you can get from shaving. No more bleeding down your neck from your average skill with a straight razor. Just be prepared for the 'medicinal' burn that the stone causes when rubbed over your neck. It's healing qualities sting you like no one's business, but afterwards you feel clean, your cuts have clotted and you're ready to greet the day. A definite must buy.
A must have for your shaving kit Review by: Attila 21/10/2012

This product does the job well. Should you nic yourself and you are a bit of a bleeder then apply the block and the bleeding stops. Saves those work shirt collars from spotting caused by shaving nics. Every shaving kit ought have one of these in it.
An interesting product Review by: Michael 28/10/2011

This is an interesting product. I have only been using it for a few weeks so am yet to really get a handle on what it can and cannot do. It is certainly good for dealing with nicks and cuts. It seems to dry my skin out a bit so I possibly wouldn't use it as an 'old school' after shave every time. It has a nice feel to it..a little bit 'bitey' which certainly feels like it is medicinal to the skin. I like it and will keep exploring its attributes.
