This blade is ground with barber's notch, making it the most desirable of all points. Features classic black celluloid scales, super masculine & traditional. This straight razor makes for an awesome investment in your shaving routine and will be an heirloom you can pass down over the years. Wade and Butcher is the most collectible and one of the most trusted cutlery companies. 

Sheffield, England was the cutlery empire in the 1800's and this blade is a true example of just how great of quality their blades were. Fear not beginners, this blade's width and grind mean you'll be shaving with confidence in time but we would suggest taking it slow your first few shaves!

This razor went through our Straight Razor Restoration service. It was first polished to a near mirror finish, removing all active rust and as much metal as was safe for this grind. The scales were also polished to give a high luster. Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone where the bevel is set. Once the bevel outline is finished the razor proceeds to be honed with the Chosera 3000 where the bevel is cleaned up and refined. Next its on to the polishing stage showcasing the Aishyama 6000, then Naniwa 12000. After the 12k, a perfectly good shave can occur, but we like to take it one step further and finish with a high polish on the Suehiro Gokumyo 20000. After honing, the blade is stropped, oiled, and arrives shave ready! Please do not strop this razor before your first shave.
