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.

Quality Razor
Purchased this razor about a month ago and have shaved with it several times. This is a beautiful, quality razor that has more than met my expectations. It is one of the razors in my collection that I look forward to using. Highly recommended.

Excellent shaver
Got one of this Japanese beauty from a friend. I have previously used Feather and straight razor, safety razor as well so i can compare to something here. The shape and quality of this razor is outstanding, flawless. It shaves close with no irritation compare to other shavettes. Easy to maintain- just drop a fresh blade inside and have 7 fresh shaves or more depending on blade choice.

Dovo half hollow
The blade seemed the same as other 6/8 the Dovo I bought 3 years ago, even though it was half hollow. Shaves great, came with a good edge. However, there was some rust stain left on the blade from finish hone. This cleaned off with some gun solvent and 0000 steel wool. Still a great shaving blade. I'm new to straight razors, thus I'm not sure what the difference is between the $100 blade compared to the $400+ blade. Only other thing that might be good to have is the SS Dovo blade at the $200 range.
