The straight razor is the king of razors. It is THE traditional razor par excellence. Made of a forged sharpened blade, and a pivoting handle (called scales), the straight razor is a barber’s best ally. It is indubitably the best tool to shave as close as possible. It is also the most ecological, because it generates no waste! And since it can last a lifetime if properly maintained, it is the most economical choice in the long run.
Most of our straight razors have been restored and are shave-ready. They have been selected, cleaned, polished, sharpened, checked, and will be ready for use as soon as you receive them, unless otherwise specified, please read each description carefully. We also offer some unrestored straight razors, but with a particular interest (for example a broken blade but beautiful set of scales) to allow you to restore it yourself.
