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 Tortoise Shell 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 scales are a mottled tortoise shell design. This classic-looking material enhance the razor with a lovely natural finish. 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.

WCS newly arrived German made straight razors.

I was very impressed with the quality of the razor I purchased which was the 5/8 full hollow with tortoise shell scales. The quality control work done by the manufacturer was absolutely exceptional. Perfect fit and finish, straight uniform bevel and shave ready as received. The scales were very well made and shaped as they should be. I would have no problem at all recommending this razor to a beginner or a long time straight razor shaver. These are very fairly priced given the high quality level you are not likely to find in a straight of this price. WCS is and has always been a great supplier to do business with. Bob B. LZ6 on SRP
