We decided to design and manufacture our own razors after years of restoring vintage razors and sharpening both vintage and modern razors. We’ve seen a lot of razors which have not survived well over time. We have also had many clients who have a difficult time keeping their razors sharp. To that end we have relied on traditional blade designs from Torrey and Wade & Butcher updated with a medium carbon, high alloy steel. The Rockwell hardness reflects a blade which actually takes a fair amount of bending over time and this will help to avoid fatigue failure. The alloying elements make the edge easier to sharpen and help to hold the edge longer. We believe we’ve created a razor that will be a pleasure to use and to maintain.
