    Since 2007, West Coast Shaving has been meeting the grooming needs of discerning men with luxurious, hard to find, and bestselling items. We are passionate about seeing a return to classic men's shaving, which is more economical, effective, and enjoyable than many of men's modern grooming practices. So, we're at it again, adding more choices to your grooming wish list. If you love wet shaving, tradition, and good workmanship, then check out these safety razors to enhance your classic shaving game. Check out West Coast Shaving Vintage Collection Razor 78BR, Brass.

    This textured handle is constructed with brass so it is long-lasting, corrosion-resistant, and gleaming. The warm brass gives it a nostalgic feel. This is a slender grooming requisite. The handle diameter isn't a large as some but it has extra length. The perfect tool for longer strokes- head shavers and woman shavers might like this possibility. It has a nice knurling pattern for excellent grip in wet environments. The heads are zinc-alloy with chrome-plating. Choose from an open or closed comb head from the drop down menu. (The handle is compatible with most standard 3-piece, DE safety razors).

    We are so passionate about getting these classic tools into the hands of everyone that we've created a high-quality, razor-to-last-a-lifetime at an economical price point. Check out all the options in the Vintage Collection. Viva La West Coast Shaving!

***Retracting earlier poor review-***

I'm revising my prior 2 star review, as it reflected a defective open comb head, which would not hold the blade evenly in alignment, without great effort to hold tightly the exposed tabs on the sides of the DE blade while carefully tightening the handle, and even then it was dicey about whether or not it would stay straight. WCS promptly shipped a replacement OC head for the defective one I had received, so I am revising my prior review to reflect both their exceptional customer care, and the new OC head. Great textured handle, weighty, extra long and easy to grip. The solid brass is great looking and should develop a nice patina with use over time. The open comb is more aggressive than others I use, which makes for a very efficient shave. Probably wouldn't recommend it for new wet shavers or those with sensitive skin. That said, my heavy, coarse beard and 3 day stubble was mown through like a hot knife through butter. I was able to achieve a BBS shave with only about one and a half passes, with a few touch ups. The OC head didn't clog even with a few days growth. I tried it out with a new Gillette Silver Blue, and was really impressed with the clean and comfortable results. At this price point, you should pick one up if you've not tried an open comb before, or as a gift for any wet shavers you know that haven't used an OC either. The brass handle also fits all my other DE safety razors, and is a nice addition to my roster.

I purchased this safety razor on 11/5. Today was my first day shaving with it and my first time ever using a safety razor. I have to say the experience was amazing. I was literally speechless. I could not believe how smooth it left my face. Now I have been shaving with a straight razor for 3 years. They are completely different in my opinion. I am super happy with my purchase and can't wait to shave again. Overall my first time shaving with this razor was amazing and I can't wait to shave again!!!

Heavy brass

The handle is solid and weighty. The head fits nicely but I had to trade it out for one of my others, it was a bit aggressive for me.

I have purchased the Blue, Brass and the Stainless Vintage safety razors. I bought all 3 because I travel and I leave the blue one in my travel bag. The best safety razor you will ever buy for the money. I have sensitive skin and I never get a rash.

Great Beginning!!

I haven't used a safety razor since the 1950's and decided to give it another go. I wanted a nice sized handle and not too aggressive head. This WCS edition has fit the bill nicely. It is a good weight and the brass simply "feels" great in the hand. So far the "toothsome" head seems to be working well during my "re-learning curve" days. Great bang for the buck, well made and a pleasure to use. So far, so good!
