History: England is famous for being a country to have historically produced some of the finest straight razors ever. The quality and hardness of metal from these Sheffield razors stood the test of time to keep the wet shaving tradition alive today.

Restoration: This razor went through our complete Revamp service. It was first polished, removing all active rust and as much metal as was safe for this grind. The blade then went through our True Honing process, utilizing stones such as a Naniwa Chosera 10k, Belgian Yellow Coticule and Shapton 30k to give this straight razor the perfect edge. It arrives to you stropped and shave ready.
