Best Selling Traditional Straight:
The BOKER 5/8" King Cutter is our best selling traditional straight razor. BOKER is known for its excellent quality in manufacturing their straight razors.
Best Beginner Straight Razor
We recommend the Dovo Shavette as a beginner straight razor for a couple reasons. 1) Because the shavette takes replaceable blades, then there is no need to hone and strop the blade. This allows a beginner to get a feel for the technique of shaving with a straight razor without worrying about the maintenance of the blade. 2) The razor is at a much lower price point than the traditional straight razors, without sacrificing on quality.
Best Value Straight Razor
At $17, the Parker SR1 is a great value. This straight razor takes 1/2 of a normal DE razor blade.
Most Modern Straight Razor
The Feather Artist Club SS breaks away from the folding design of most straight razors. The shape of the razor mixed with the materials of stainless steel and black resin make for a beautifully modern design. Feather makes its own blades that are made specifically to work with the artist club razor.
Most Manly Straight Razor
Want manly? From the scales (handle) made of buffalo horn to the gold plated spine, the Dovo Bergischer Lowe Buffalo Horn 5/8" has everything that is manly. It is produced by DOVO, who is well known for its high quality in straight razor manufacturing in Solingen, Germany.
