– Chrome plated DE Safety shaving razor.

– Hand selected stabilized Spalted Tamarind wooden handle.  – Spalted Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) is a beautiful African wood. Much of this pale yellow sapwood comes from logs that were either found on the forest floor or were cut and then allowed to spalt in the very damp warm conditions of the jungle. The colors and various line patterns are truly unique from one piece to another.   

 Accented with three grooved rings, fiction burned with wire.

– A 7 mm brass tube runs through the handle’s center.  Chrome end pieces are screwed together with threaded rod and also glued, making the handle sturdy and water resistant.

– Wooden handle has been stabilized.  Stabilized woods are woods that have been impregnated under a vacuum with a polymer resin. The pressurized injection forces the resin into all the spaces and pores in the wood. This greatly increases its durability, and resistance to atmospheric change.  The wood becomes heavier, more stable, and much more resistant to water.

Recently, the double edge safety razor has seen resurgence in popularity. Their benefits include a substantial cost savings over cartridges with an extremely close shave while experiencing a traditional shaving method.

Our safety razors have superbly balanced and heft and feature solid brass components throughout along with a full size handle. They accept all standard double edge shaving blades. The threaded razor head design allows easy disassembly from the handle as needed for cleaning.
