Straight Razor Education

Many wet shave enthusiasts believe these straight blades offer the ultimate close shave and swear your face stays smooth longer. Straight razor shaving is an art that many shavers are readopting. A large sharpened piece of steel on your face is the ultimate vintage way to shave.

Types of Straight Razors

Traditional straight razors are what most people think of when they think of straight razors. It is one piece of metal that needs to be sharpened through honing and stropping in order to maintain its edge. Because the manufacturing of traditional straight razors is a very manual process and not many manufacturers are able to create quality blades, the price tends to be high. We carry Dovos and Bokers in this category, two manufacturers that are known for their quality.

Replaceable blade/ disposable straight razors have the same basic shape as traditional straight razors, but they shave using a disposable razor blade. They are often called "shavette" razors. These straight razors require much less maintenance, are made of varying materials, and are at a lower price point.

Carbon Steel vs Stainless Steel

Carbon steel is able to get much sharper than stainless steel, but it also dings and rusts much easier- so it requires a little more maitenance. If you go with a carbon steel straight razor, make sure to allow the blade to dry after every shave and to strop regularly.

Boker 5/8 Arbolito SR
Excellent razor. Light and elegant. Surprisingly great hone, just a quick strop and right to the face. Seemed to shave faster.

Great buy!
I was very pleased with the product I received. The quality and craftsmanship was superior in comparison to the blade I received. The deal breaker was the price I paid. Thanks West Coast Shaving!

Hard to find a 6/8 Dovo Half Hollow Grind. West Coast had them. Price is ok and shipping was good.

This is my first time using a straight razor on my legs, and the results were great! It is simple to use, and as long as I took my time, I did not feel in danger of cutting myself. The main reason I switched was to avoid landfill waste, but this is going to save me money on razors over the long run - very pleased. The blade quality seems great to me - I also bought a strop to maintain it. The handle is simple and functional, but basically black plastic. That was what I expected with the lower price - I didn't want to invest a lot of money not knowing whether or not this would work for me. Great first straight razor.

I bought the Edelweiss recently and couldn't be happier with it. Very nice blade and an aesthetically pleasing addition to my bathroom counter top. New to straight razor shaving but enjoying it so far. Thank you West Coast Shaving for offering this piece of artwork, I will be purchasing more items in the near future.
