Matt Gives the HUGE 7/8" Rex Supply Co Sovereign Cutthroat Straight Razor a Shave

9th Jun 2022

I’m Matt Pisarcik, founder of Razor Emporium, welcome to the blog!

At Razor Emporium, we believe in empowering men and women to practice traditional grooming using quality new and vintage shaving supplies. Our business is made up of three core areas, Service, Retail, and Education.

Rex Supply Co. razors have a reputation for superior quality and artisan craftsmanship that the Sovereign puts on full display. The 3” long, 7/8” width blade is formed of 01 carbon steel that maintains a sharp, lasting edge and a finely tuned balance that instantly translates into fine user control. The blade is a full hollow ground for maximum sharpness, comfort and performance, making it easy to guide through even the thickest hairs without tugging, pulling or chafing.

The Sovereign is designed with a “barber’s notch” point to promote simple blade access. The spine is adorned with hand filed indentations that work with fine tooth jumps on the underside to provide excellent grip, even when wet. Every razor features a mark on the tang that identifies the company’s blade smith, who grinds each edge by hand in the company’s Phoenix, Arizona workshop.

When not in use, the blade folds neatly into its protective scales. Those preferring a traditional appearance will appreciate the handmade, genuine rosewood scales. Also features a faux ivory recon-stone wedge to maintain proper spacing for the blade.

The Sovereign is 100% “Made in the USA” and designed for a lifetime of use. This product also comes with a lifetime warranty.
