It doesn't get better than this! West Coast Shaving has teamed up with Brian Twilley from Charcoal Goods to design a line of stainless steel, CNC, made-in-the-USA safety razors. Here's the story: Brian is an awesome guy. When we discovered his razors, we reached out to him to see how we could collaborate to create something with his artisan design at a more affordable price point. Brian was all in. So with his masters in Fine Arts, he designed some handles with some west coast inspiration, and we found the manufacturers to make large quantities at a better price point. Welcome the Artisan CNC line of WCS safety razors.
Each razor is made through the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) process. This means that every piece of the razor is made precisely to our specifications. The razors are cut down from single pieces of stainless steel instead of being cast from a liquid metal, which means the metal itself is flawless and stronger. The heads are made to the same geometry as Charcoal Goods heads and are known to be moderately aggressive. There was no detail spared in making this razor. It is truly a work of art.
From start to finish this razor is made right in the American heartland. Even the box that it comes in is crafted in Wisconsin. The walnut and aspen box doesn't only display that razor attractively, it can even double as a travel case.
We pulled inspiration from different iconic West Coast landmarks for the design of our handles. The inspiration for this specific razor handle design came from the Seattle Space Needle.
When you want an amazing view of the Pacific Northwest (aka God's country), take a trip to the top of Seattle's world famous tower. The Space Needle provides magnificent views of snowy mountain peaks, evergreen lined hills, the urban dance, and the lapping waters of the sound. Built for the 1962 World's Fair, this iconic tower gives its name to our Space Needle handle. With its design and finish, this handle is a view unto itself.
