'Skyfall' shave scene 'increases cut-throat razor sales by 405%'

By
A shaving scene in Skyfall has apparently caused a 405% increase in sales of cut-throat razors in the last five days.

During the scene, British actress Naomie Harris gives Daniel Craig's 007 a close shave using a cut-throat razor, whispering in his ear: "Sometimes the old ways are the best."


Daniel Craig's 007 appears to fall to his death in the new 'Skyfall' trailer.


As well as experiencing the 405% increase in sales, online retailer The Shaving Shack has also seen a 123% increase in web traffic since the film was released in the UK on October 26, and traffic from internet searches for "cut-throat razor" and "straight razor" has soared by a staggering 735%.

Nick Gibbens, brand director of The Shaving Shack, said: "Bond fans have an emotional attachment to 007, they love his Aston Martin cars, Omega watches and dinner suits.

"So it comes as no surprise that they have jumped on his love for cut-throat razors.

"

He added: "Shaving with a cut-throat razor is certainly one of life's pleasures as it will give you the closest possible shave.

"But it does take time to master the technique and you'll certainly need a steady hand and plenty of practice."
