Straight Razors are here!
Brand new Gold Dollar 208 straight razor.
Each blade is honed by my friend Randy at First Canadian Shave. Each razor is shave ready, cleaned and sanitized.
The blade is carbon steel, with a plastic faux carbon fiber scales and measures in at 6/8.
This is a Great economical way to test the waters and see if straight razor shaving is for you.
Before you purchase this razor, a few suggestions:
1) If you have never used a straight razor before- I recommend first trying a DE razor before you jump into straight razor shaving.
2) You will want a leather strop. I recommend strops that are 3" wide. These are readily available online. We have not yet sourced strops for our online store.
3) These razors should be honed (using stones) 1-2 times a year depending on usage. Please contact us for details on where to get these razors honed.
4) We have a couple of basic instructional videos on straight razor shaving in our College of Shaving section. Click here.
