If you are looking to go "cut-throat" with your shave, check out West Coast Shaving's line of straight razors. For years, we've been committed to sourcing and producing exceptional men's grooming items, and now we're excited to bring you these straight razors. For over a year, we've been coordinating with the German Chamber of Commerce in the United States and the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany to find a quality manufacturer to bring you an exceptional product, right from the legendary blade making region of Solingen, Germany. Check out our WCS Olive Wood Straight Razor, 5/8 Carbon Steel.

This elegant razor is perfect for the novice just getting his feet as well as the expert looking for a great addition to his den. The blade is 5/8" which is great for general beard growth removal and clear of markings which contributes to the clean lines. The full hollow grind and carbon steel is often preferred for its audible feedback. You can hear the blade "sing" as you are getting a BBS shave. However, care must be taken in maintaining this utensil as the carbon steel can rust. Rinse with clear water after use and keep it dry. (Some would even encourage a swipe with the towel between passes.) Always store in a well-ventilated area. And as long as you are embracing the straight blade, you might as well grab a good strop and learn the art of sharpening your newly acquired steel!

The WCS logo is etched on one side of the tang and the reverse side boasts "Handmade Solingen Germany" so you know you are getting a quality product. The tang and spine are oxidized for a unique black finish and the jimps on the underside of the tang provide an excellent grip. The scales are a lovely light olive wood. The gracefully grained light wood handle finishes the elegant look! Each blade comes "shave ready" in a beautiful Black Nappa leather sheath to protect your investment.

Invest in yourself, invest in your shave, invest in a great, enduring tool.

Great product

Purchased this on a Tuesday and arrived by Saturday of the same week. WCS claimed the razor would arrive shave-ready and in fact it did. The ****** shave with this razor was a pleasure. Thank you WCS for offering this precision tool at a reasonable cost.

Excellent product

I had been wanting to buy a nicer straight razor for some time, and WCS's release of their line made that possible for a decent price. The razor I received was absolutely marvelous as far as quality, both aesthetically and functionally. This is a beautiful piece that shaves well. It also comes with a leather sleeve for storage. The razor is minimally adorned, and the branding marks do not stand out, which, for me, is a plus. The purchasing and shipping experience was standard as far as WCS goes, my order arrived on time, with no hassle. If you're on the fence about WCS's straight razors, don't be, they're great.
