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 Rosewood 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 boast "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 gorgeous Rosewood scales are perfect for a gentlemanŠ—Ès routine. Richly colored with lovely grain, this wood is great for adding panache to your grooming game. Each blade comes "shave ready" in a beautiful Black Nappa leather sheath to protect your investment.

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

Surprisingly good

I bought this razor expecting it to be just ok, I was surprised by the workmanship that went into the grind and the finish, I normally like 6/8” straight razors better, although this one has a welcome place in my collection, thank you WCS.

Rosewood straight Razor.

I upgraded from a 4/8 beginner blade 3 weeks ago. This razor has a nice balance and comes shave ready. Very smooth shave and strops easily. The neck is not to thin to hold between your fingers when stropping. Also this was a birthday gift from my wife. Great choice! Oh yeah, Rosewood has a strong scent at first. Caught me by surprise. Lol
