If you are looking to go "cut-throat" with your shave, check out West Coast Shaving's line of straight razors. For years, we've been committed to sourcing and producing exceptional men's grooming items, and now we're excited to bring you these straight razors.For over a year, we've been coordinating with the German Chamber of Commerce in the United States and the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany to find a quality manufacturer to bring you an exceptional product, right from the legendary blade making region of Solingen, Germany. Check out our WCS Mother of Pearl Straight Razor, 5/8 Carbon Steel.

This elegant entry level razor is perfect for the novice just getting his feet as well as the expert looking for a great addition to his den. The blade is 5/8" which is great for general beard growth removal and clear of markings which contributes to the clean lines. The full hollow grind and carbon steel is often preferred for its audible feedback. You can hear the blade "sing" as you are getting a BBS shave. However, care must be taken in maintaining this utensil as the carbon steel can rust. Rinse with clear water after use and keep it dry. (Some would even encourage a swipe with the towel between passes.) Always store in a well-ventilated area. And as long as you are embracing the straight blade, you might as well grab a good strop and learn the art of sharpening your newly acquired steel!

The WCS logo is etched on one side of the tang and the reverse side boast "Handmade Solingen Germany" so you know you are getting a quality product. The tang and spine are oxidized for a black finish. And in keeping with the clean, sleek design, the scales are mother of pearl. The lovely pearlescent shine will enhance your groom. Each blade comes "shave ready" in a beautiful Black Nappa leather sheath to protect your investment.

Invest in yourself, invest in your shave, invest is a great, enduring tool.

Some flaws but other wise good.

I purchased this razor as part of the luxury build your own kit. It looks amazing, the edge needed some work, was it shave ready? yes but not to my liking so probably the same for others. The main reason for the 3 stars is the pinning/drilling of the scales at the blade. There is a very noticeable wobble with an occasional click when opening and closing, also I can feel a movement other than a rotation when gripping not as I am using it to shave but when positioning my grip.
