7/8ths, Wedge Grind, African Blackwood, Fine Silver – Custom Straight Razor

April 2, 2017

A recent interpretation of an 1800’s classic Sheffield design, often called the “For Barber’s Use”. A name given to the largest blades made by the English razor makers, affectionately known as choppers. Keen shaver, nice grind, and a beautiful junction between polished steel, ox horn, and a subtle engraving as a reminder of those who mean the most to us.
