Chris Kirchen is the metal-worker 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. With their great shave and beautiful design, this is the kind of razor you hand down to the next generation.
Dubbed the Christopher Bradley razor, this grooming instrument is made of solid brass. Left uncoated so a lovely, warm patina will form over time, this is beaded blasted for matte finish. This razor is complete with handle and base plate, so pop in your favorite blade and you are ready to shave. The solid bar plate is Level E guard, which is an aggressive-leaning blade gap.
The 3.5” handle is ground with a notable pattern. The knurling was inspired by a centuries-old technique used by watchmakers called Guilloche. 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.
