    • Traditional straight razor
    • 5/8" blade for general beard growth removal
    • Distinctive Red Tortoise Shell handle

    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 Red Tortoise Shell Straight Razor, 5/8 Carbon Steel.

    This elegant 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 unique black finish and the jimps on the underside of the tang provide an excellent grip. Are you looking for a unique look to your classic shaving device? Then check out the red tortoise shell scales on this razor. This classic-looking material enhances the razor with a lovely mottled finish, but with a more reddish hue than the traditional tortoise shell. Each blade comes "shave ready" in a beautiful Black Nappa leather sheath to protect your investment.

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

My "go to" straight razor

I've had this razor for about a year now. It's my "go to" straight razor. Admittedly, I use a safety razor 60% of the time, but when I straight razor shave, this is my favourite razor. It holds a good sharp edge, feels comfortable in the hand, and looks amazing. Love it!

Good Shaver

This razor shaves well. It feels light and balanced in my hand. The quality is good especially given that it is a Soligen blade. I bought this on black Monday at 50% off, so it was a great deal. It was my first straight razor, and after 30 shaves I'm starting to get pretty smooth with it.

fine razor, comes shave ready

An excellent quality blade, great looking scales. Razor was sharp and shave ready on arrival. Good value for the money but more expensive than the Dovo "Best Quality" which is 30% less costly. I would expect the "house brand" to have little extras like fancier scales for the same price as the traditional brand's plain version. Overall a great razor and I recommend it without hesitation.
