– Gun metal plated Slant-bar, DE Safety shaving razor.

– Hand-selected Stag Antler (Elk tine).  

– 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.  Gun metal 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.

    • * This is a Slant Bar DE Safety Razor, which is an ideal razor style for those with a coarse beard or sensitive skin. A slant bar razor produces a shearing action for cleaner cutting with less pulling. Depending on your face and beard status, you can change heads as needed.
  • Most of us have never heard of a ‘Slant’ razor, although they’ve been around for over 100 years. Considered by shaving aficionados as superior to standard safety razors because of its fast, efficient cutting action, slant razors are highly recommended for those with sensitive skin or a heavy beard. With the blade held at a slant or angle to the razor handle, the blade produces a shearing action when cutting. That means it cuts faster, cleaner and with less pressure than a regular safety razor. It also reduces pulling on the hair follicle for fewer nicks and irritation. If you have a sensitive beard or shave daily, the Artisan Slant Bar Razor Kit is the razor for you. Once you’ve used a slant razor a few times, you’ll never look back.
    • Perfect for those with sensitive skin or heavy beard
    • Angled blade position cuts faster, closer shave
    • Shearing angle cuts more efficient like a guillotine or mandoline
    • Less pressure required when cutting
    • Reduces pulling on hair follicles to eliminate nicks
    • Headpiece unscrews from the handle for cleaning and blade changing
    • Accepts standard double edge safety razor blades (not included)
  • 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.
