Please Note

Redefining Ritual

Double edge safety razors use old-school razor blades, ensuring a closer shave then is typically possible with a disposable razor head. There is a ledge on the razor head that touches your face, and the closeness of the razor is determined by the angle of your hand / the handle. This type of razor require a bit of initial learning and care, but becomes second-nature quickly. This is not a razor you want to quickly run over your face as you run out the door. This is a razor best paired with ritual - heating your brush, creating a strong lather, and mindfully guiding the blade over the contours of your face.

* Each razor ordered will be completely unique, and not necessarily the razor shown in the photo. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Our Innovator series of brushes and razors pair perfectly with our raw shaving soaps.

Adversity can destroy but it can also create. Like the pearl that forms from a grain of sand inside the shell of an oyster, a tree creates burls to protect itself from an irritant. Instead of growing in concentric circles, the grain of wood twists and curves finding a new way to be in the face of a problem. Burled wood symbolizes forging a new path in the face of adversity.

Ramsay box elder burl, stainless steel hardware, German-made Merkur stainless steel double edge safety razor.
