BlackBird Machined Safety Razor

  • 3-piece razor


In 2015, Shane Swartzlander and his wife, Merissa Hawkins formed Blackland with a desire to blur the lines between art and function. They were inspired by the high-end watch industry. While you might be able to purchase a cheap timepiece that can tell you the time, but that isn’t the only consideration when buying a watch. A fine watch tells a story – of quality, durability, and design. The Blackland razors take the same approach. 

The Blackbird Safety razor is a sleek, modern marvel. Modeled after the iconic SR-71 “Blackbird” reconnaissance aircraft, this razor is striking in form and astounding in function. The long vertical lines create troughs for the water to flow down and away, giving you better grip. The three-piece razor is machined from 303 stainless steel with tight tolerances, so you get a noteworthy close, consistent shave from the closed comb (safety bar) head.

The razor handle is finished with a machine finish, which means you get the markings created during the machining process. This gives the product an unfinished feel, that tells the story of the journey from raw material to marvelous razor.

Solid piece of rock!

Fantastic razor, very tough and effective but manageable, not too aggressive, but to be treated with respect! He gave me a deep shave that lasted until the end of the day, without irritation. No need of the usual touch-ups. Expensive, but the more you pay the more you get

Blackbird Machined Razor

Another great razor from Blackland. I like the polished a little more but this still much smoother, efficient and engineered properly than most. All of their razors are fantastic. I've almost tried all of them.

Blackbird safety razor

This razor makes most others feel cheap. Compared to the Merkur 34hd this is a slightly more aggressive razor and superior craftsmanship. This is a razor you will want to use and keep forever. Seriously the best I've had my hands on and I own a dozen high quality razors.
