Blackbird Machined Brass Safety Razor
- Meticulously designed single edge safety razor

- 3-piece safety razor
Shane Swartzlander and his wife Merissa Hawkins found Blackland in 2015 to elevate the art of the shave. Taking their cues from the high-end watch industry which knows that there is more to a product than function, they focused on design, quality, and durability to create not just a safety razor, but a work of art.
The Vector Safety Razor is turning the single blade, "artist club" style razors market on its head. The advantage of a long cutting edge that removes swathes of hair in a single pass is often outweighed (literally) by the weight on the head. Blackland has solved this problem by modifying the threaded post to allow the artist club blade to slide over it, keeping the head as small as possible. While current safety razors in this category tend to be bulky and hefty, this razor is a featherweight by comparison - almost two-thirds lighter and half as wide. And it is balanced perfectly over the handle rather than being front-heavy.
You can choose your handle finish from the drop-down menu. Get a handle with a machine finish, which means you get the markings created during the machining process. This gives the product an unfinished feel. Or select the polished handle for a truly timeless feel. It is meticulously hand-sanded before being buffed to a mirror-like shine. This one is display-worthy!
