Traditional Straight Razors

When you are committed to going "old-school" with your shave, then you probably want to look to a straight. These edges are loved for their closeness and longevity.

If you imagine yourself with a blade, a honing strop, and a mirror nailed to a tree, then you are probably ready to shave the "cut throat" way. Traditional straight razors just scream testosterone. While the initial investment in razor and strop can set you back a bit, you more than recoup the expense when you never have to buy another over-priced cartridge again. The time spent in honing your technique as well as your blade is worth the pay-off when you can get the closest shave of your life.

WCS Black Straight Razor, 5/8 Carbon Steel Honestly, I bought this razor for the novelty as I shave daily and wanted something more interesting rather than a bland 5-blade razor. This set is well worth the money as it gives you everything you need to shave and is of great quality too. Yes, it is rather expensive but that is just the nature of straight razors. I am looking forward to buying more shave soaps and after shaves from West Coast Shaving.

Dovo Inox Olivewood 5/8" Straight Razor Customer service in terms of delivery and email

Communications were spot on. This is my first straight razor and being able to strop it and use it was worth the couple of extra bucks. It has proven to be durable, easy to use and maintain. It is a reasonable size and shape for a newbie. The olive wood handle is nice to touch. Curious to see how it will age.

WCS Tortoise Shell Straight Razor, 5/8 Carbon Steel 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.

Dovo "Classic" Straight Razor, Black Handle, 5/8" I like this razor but haven’t had it or used it enough to give a productive review. I do know that the customer service at West Coast Shaving has been top notch in all of my dealings with them. Thanks Kevin!

Dovo "Special" Tortoise 5/8' Straight Razor As far as construction and aesthetics I think this razor is superb. I base my opinion on my general experience with knives. Still learning how to shave with a cut throat so I don't have a reference point on which to comment on performance other than to say that it does a good job of cutting hair - and no nicks! I am glad I purchased a round tip - at least until my technic with shaving and honing solidifies. I recommend giving this razor a try.
