Carbon Fibre Straight Razor

Make the last razor you will ever use - a razor that if properly cared for will be handed down across generations.

There's a reason people still go to the barber for a Straight Razor shave. Disposable razors are convenient, but the results can't compare to a Straight Razor.

Also known as a "Cut Throat", a Straight Razor will virtually melt the hair off your face. Despite its keen edge, a Straight Razor is just as safe as a disposable razor when used with correct technique.
