They're Here! I was fortunate to get one of the first Karve Shaving Co. Christopher Brandley (CB) Razors. These CB Razors are a real game changer.
The Christopher Bradley razor is a classic double edge safety razor that will provide a smooth shave and years of service. All aspects of manufacture are meticulously controlled to provide consistent performance and clean aesthetics.
Most notably, the handle is decorated with a pattern that is inspired by the centuries-old guilloche technique commonly used in watch making. The pattern is cut into the body of the handle, instead of formed, which ensures that all of the edges of the pattern are smooth and clean, while still providing plenty of friction for wet fingers.
We offer the razor with 3 different solid bar (SB) plates, each with increasing aggressiveness, to tailor your shave to your face and style.The levels range from B (the least aggressive of the 3) to D (the most aggressive of the 3). Additional plates are sold separately through Karve Shaving Co.
Keep in mind that each level denotes a specific blade geometry, not shaving performance.
3.5 inch handle length
B - gap = 0.73mm / exposure = zero
C - gap = 0.85mm / exposure = positive 0.09mm
D - gap = 0.98mm / exposure = positive 0.13mm
Blade gap (the space under the cutting edge), blade exposure (how far the cutting edge is sticking out), blade angle (the angle of the cutting edge relative to the razor), and blade support (how well the cutting edge is supported) all contribute to aggressiveness and performance.
