Ian is also fully qualified in the art of the traditional cut throat wet shave having trained several years ago with the wet shaving expert and master barber at Harrods in London when Mr Al Fayed had private ownership, he has a professional knowledge of traditional Turkish wet shaving including singeing and was also instrumental in the creation of the Internationally renowned Essence of Scotland range of traditional shaving soaps.
