The making of an artisanal straight razor

leave a comment »

Straight razors have a couple of advantages over DE razors. Straight razors can (IMO) be quite beautiful—more beautiful than a DE razor—and an artisan can make a straight razor: I can’t imagine an artisanal DE razor (or blade, for that matter).

This video from Lewis Razors is a nicely paced documentary of creating a straight razor. His razors are sold by Straight Razor Designs.
