WCS Hyperion CNC Safety Razor|
- 316 Classic three piece double edge razor
- Made with CNC machined, stainless steel
- Handle design inspired by the world's tallest redwood, Hyperion.
Each razor is made through the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) process. Yes, that is 316 Stainless steel. 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. There was no detail spared in making this razor. It is truly a work of art.
This is a mid-aggressive head, but very smooth and forgiving. Designed for someone that would like to step up from a mild razor like a Merkur or Edwin Jagger. The razor head was designed by Charcoal Goods with amazing geometry to give you a mild, but efficient shave. The matte finish of the head and handle create a lovely presentation. The weight will do the work of mowing down those hairs. The West Coast Shaving logo laser on the bottom of the base plate lets you know you are getting quality.
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 Redwood Forests, in which Hyperion is the tallest tree.
Towering in the coastal forest of northern California and into Oregon are the world's largest and tallest trees. These Sequoias reach heights of more than 350ft and live for thousands of years, the tallest of which is Hyperion. So, they are perfectly represented in this tall, long-lasting handle. The extra length makes it great for long strokes and/or large hands.
Handle Length: 4 inches
