Centuries of tradition. Wood grown for decades. One year of development. All for the moment of the perfect shave. The accomplished design of the blade is a tribute to Japanese blacksmithing. Let the razor glide across your face and feel the attention to detail that makes this a truly iconic piece. The sustainable walnut, maple, spruce, and beech wood of the handle has been densified and hardened through a novel process to the extreme so that it can withstand water and soap with ease. After shaving, the razor is much too precious to disappear into the case: The polished tang and back and the innovative shape set visual accents.

5/8 inch razors are true all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colours. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.

The Inverted Turkish Point refers to the tip of the straight razor. Unlike the usual rounded or square tips, this one has a distinctive, slightly concave shape.

This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.

The exclusive handle combines tradition with modernity. The sustainable SwissWood maple wood from Switzerland is brought to an incredibly high hardness through an innovative compaction process, so that the wood defies the adversities of water, soap and is thus in no way inferior to the longevity of the blade.

To avoid stains, rinse your blade with warm water after shaving. Next, dab it dry with a cloth without touching the cutting edge and stow it open to dry completely. Between two applications there should be at least 48 hours so that the burr can realign itself. If you are not going to use your razor for a longer period of time, apply a bit of acid-free oil to it. 

How to shave: Your shaving begins with stropping on a leather strop. After you have generously coated your face with shaving lather or shaving oil, grab the blade so that the open handle points away from you. With your free hand, gently hold your skin to form as straight a surface as possible. You set the blade at about 30° angle and smoothly pull it down over your face. First, start going with the hair, and then finish by going against the growth direction.

Dimensions: 14.5 cm x 2.4 cm x 1.1 cm.
