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.

Dubbed the Christopher Bradley razor, this grooming instrument is made of solid brass. It is beaded blasted for matte finish but left uncoated so a lovely, warm patina will form over time. This razor is complete with handle and base plate, so pop in your favorite blade and get grooming. The plate is Level B solid bar guard, which is mild/medium in its aggressiveness.

The 3” handle is ground with a new knurled style, Gladius. The knurling was inspired from a Gladius which was a sword commonly used by ancient Roman foot soldiers. The lines are actually cut into the brass (not formed) so that you are ensured smooth, clean edges – and plenty of friction for wet fingers. Add this lovely grooming requisite to your shaving den.


  • 95g x 83mm long
  • Blade gap Level B - 0.73mm

Made in Canada

Love at First Shave!

I just received my Karve Christopher Bradley Brass razor with a 3” handle with the “B” plate. I also purchased the “C” and “D” plates. The razor arrived ahead of my expectation which was an unexpected delight. My first shave was with the “C” plate. I was blown away after experiencing an amazingly smooth and efficient shave. It may be the best shave I have ever had. It was that good! I absolutely love it! I have been using the Rockwell 6C Gunmetal for the past few years and it is a great razor that gives great shaves, but I think Karve Christopher Bradley may have just surpassed what I thought was my lifetime razor in the Rockwell. The only thing I think I would add is that I think I may like a longer handle. I will order either the 3.25” or the 3.5”. The short handle is not bad. It is just much shorter than the Rockwell 6C handle that I have become accustomed to. Great job producing a wonderful razor in every way! This razor is top notch in workmanship, and appearance, but even more so it is a great shaver which after all is said and done is what counts most! Great job Karve! And, superb service West Coast Shaving Co.!
