  • Guard plate for The Christopher Bradley razor
  • Solid brass
  • Medium-aggressive

 Chris Kirchen is the artisan behind Karve Shaving Co. Based out of Canada, he is producing exceptional brass safety razors that are catching the imagination of wet shavers around the world. These beautiful instruments are heirloom quality and provide an exceptional smooth shave.

The Christopher Bradley razor employs interchangeable guards to adjust its aggressiveness. So this plate fits the Karve razors and provides you with a medium leaning to aggressive blade gap. It is made of solid brass. It is beaded blasted for matte finish but left uncoated so a lovely, warm patina will form over time. 

Adding this plate to your razor will allow you to tackle your grooming with a medium-aggressive shave. The level is clearly visible even when the razor is assembled so you can know which blade gap you are facing. You can have multiple plates to meet all your shaving needs.

Size: Level D Guard - blade gap 0.98mm

 Made in Canada

I first bought the C plate and found it did not produce the close shave. I then bought the D plate and it was perfect. Smooth and cut the beard very close. No irritation.

Top tier

I bought the Christopher Bradley with included C plate. I figured I'd get this D plate just in case. I used the C first. Very mild, but quite efficient. My next shave changed out to this D. Wow, it was perfect! Still very mild, but a lot more efficient. I was able to do a 2 pass with a little cleanup for a perfect shave. For the price, might try out the E next. And the shipping at WCS is so fast.

Holy Grail

I thought the C plate was great, but decided I wanted to try just one step up. I am thrilled I did. The D plate (with Astra Green or Gillette Black) gives me the closest shave I've ever had in only 1 pass. Granted, I am not striving for the BBS shave anymore, but this very close and with being complete in only 1 pass there is very little chance for irritation. My beard is very coarse but not dense. I don't know if it would work the same for you, but for me, it just might be the Holy Grail in my shave den.

Quality goods

The dimensional tolerances are very precise, the brass sandblasted matte finish, high quality, very delicate and beautiful.
