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 maintenance. If you go with a carbon steel straight razor, make sure to allow the blade to dry after every shave and to strop regularly.

Does exactly what I bought it for...
I've been looking for something to trim the top of my mustache under my nose. The narrow width of the blade holder makes that possible. In the interest of full disclosure, I probably shouldn't call what I'm using it for shaving. But, I can pick off one hair at a time and make it work. I dinged it one star just because of the flimsy feel. Yes, it is light and easy to control in tight quarters as I mentioned. But, the overall feel is maybe just a little too light. Not a big deal, but it's not a very expensive piece of equipment either.

Q:<p>Do you have any tips for someone that is new to Straight Razors? I got my first one yesterday and I used it, but I really didn't know what I was doing, so I ended up finishing the shave with my DE razor.</p>

A:We would recommend watching a youtube video on how to use a straight razor. You will need to patient because there is a big learning curve for straight razors.

A:The most common sizes are 5/8 or 6/8. We like to recommend the 5/8 because it is a little easier to control the blade.

Q:What is the difference between carbon steel and stainless steel razors?
Answers

A:The carbon steel is easier to sharpen and can get sharper. The only negative to carbon is it can rust very easily. So we recommend make sure the razor is completely dry before you put the razor away. The stainless steel tends to hold its edge longer, but it is harder to sharpen. Also being stainless you don't have to worry about the razor rusting.
