Artisan Safety Razor Collection

We worked with Brian from Charcoal Goods to create a Made in the USA, Stainless Steel, CNC line of safety Razors. No detail was spared from the design of the handles to the packaging that it comes in.

It doesn’t get better than this! West Coast Shaving has teamed up with Brian Twilley from Charcoal Goods to design a line of stainless steel, CNC, made-in-the-USA safety razors. Here’s the story: Brian is an awesome guy. When we discovered his razors, we reached out to him to see how we could collaborate to create something with his artisan design at a more affordable price point. Brian was all in. So with his masters in Fine Arts, he designed some handles with some west coast inspiration, and we found the manufacturers to make large quantities at a better price point. Welcome the Artisan CNC line of WCS safety razors.


Each razor is made through the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) process. This means that every piece of the razor is made precisely to our specifications. The razors are cut down from single pieces of stainless steel instead of being cast from a liquid metal, which means the metal itself is flawless and stronger. The heads are made to the same geometry as Charcoal Goods heads and are known to be moderately aggressive. There was no detail spared in making this razor. It is truly a work of art.


From start to finish this razor is made right in the American heartland. Even the box that it comes in is crafted in Wisconsin. The walnut and aspen box doesn’t only display that razor attractively, it can even double as a travel case.

Excellent razor for a new or veteran wet shaver!

Hyperion CNC Safety Razor This is the third razor of Brian's that I have purchased and they're all great. But they're also all different. With the longer handle, this one might be a good starter razor for those willling to pay the price as it's very easy to handle. The pattern on the handle also offers excellent grip. The shorter handle on Charcoal branded is razors is shorter and takes a bit more practice. This one was very easy to adjust to. As other reviewers mention, it's heavy since it is cast stainless steel, but I really like that since the weight then does a lot of the work for you as opposed to relying on pressure. The head is very similiar to the Muhle R89 that this is replacing for me, but does show a bit more blade. It doesn't show as much blade as a Chargoal Goods machined head, though, so it's definitely a milder shave. If you're real fussy, note that the finish on this razor is quit a bit nicer than the images may lead you to believe. Not sure why, but the brushed stainless steel in the images looks a bit muddy - but don't worry as this is very, very nicely finished. Highly recommend!

Hollywood Palm CNC Safety Razor When I first ordered I started to believe that I was nuts paying over $150 for a razor. Boy am I glad I did. I have used several razors and this is the best one I have ever used.

Artisan Hyperion Stainless Steel Razor

Hyperion CNC Safety Razor I absolutely love this razor. I like mild razors and this one is mild, but, a little more aggressive than my Feather AS-D2, which comes in handy when I have 3 or 4 days growth to mow down. Also, it isn't big and bulky which makes it able to get to those trouble spots (under the nose, the chin, etc.) . It utilizes bars to hold the blade firmly in place, and it's made of stainless steel, another plus. The only thing I don't care for is that the handle is a little too heavy for my taste, but like most wet shavers I have plenty of extra handles to choose from....thanks for another great razor................Phil

Perfect Marriage Handle and Head
6/6/2017
Hollywood Palm CNC Safety Razor This razor is a new DE razor made by Charcoal for West Coast. I have been moving toward single edge shaving lately. I am looking forward to the release of some of the new Gem blade razors. However, I saw this razor and had been hearing a lot about Charcoal razors and purchased it in a moment of RAD. I am not at all sorry for the purchase. The most outstanding part of this razor is the handle. about 1/4 down on the handle there is some very well don comfortable checkering. There are no sharp edges on the checkering and it is in just the right place for WTG and XTG passes. Furthermore, the checkering is in the perfect place to balance the razor perfectly. The handle has a flair at the bottom which offers an easy secure hold for the ATG pass. I was able to hold the razor upside down and complete the ATG pass with no worry of dropping the razor. The razor and handle are so well mated for each other that there is no need for excess pressure from your hand. The result of this design of the handle alone is a smooth comfortable close shave. The head also is well designed and balanced. I give this razor with this handle a definite thumbs up.

Great razor

Hyperion CNC Safety Razor This razor is fantastic! I was a little worried that it would be too heavy but the length distributes the weight very well. The finish on it is excellent especially with it being a milled razor and not cast. The head is flatter than most making it a little easier to get hard to reach spots on your face. The head design also allows for easy cleaning. It's definitely my favorite razor so far even surpassing my Edwin Jagger DE89. The price may seem steep but it's completely worth it.

That has changed. This razor is fantastic ... and for THIS price!. Right after I ordered my razor they had a promotion to get a free case with a razor purchase. My razor had already shipped BUT they were very accommodating to get me the case.

Smooth!

When I opened the box I knew this was going to be nice. It's like driving a Ferrari around your face! It holds the blade at the precise angle for a perfect shave, the weight of it is good and balanced. I found the handle a little slick, but I've gotten used to it. The head is very smooth and it just glides right across your face, even after 2 days growth. I highly recommend this razor, I didn't know what I was missing until I used this one!
