We don’t usually pick a particular brand or razor to spotlight, but in this case we’ve made an exception. Wet Shaving is coming back in a strong way, particularly in the States, we saw this really cool razor on Kickstarer and said we’d do an article on it. Blackland Razors take an old world traditional product and give it a 21st century design.

Blackland is a new company creating high end safety razors machined from stainless steel in the United States. Their first offering, named the Blackbird, is now on Kickstarter. Blackbird draws its name and design inspiration from the iconic SR-71 “Blackbird” reconnaissance aircraft. Like its namesake, the Blackbird razor combines sleek curves and sharp angles.

The result is a truly striking razor.blackland-safety-razor

Blackbird is available in a unique black oxide finish or brushed stainless steel and comes with a 70mm or 101mm handle.

Blade positioning is handled reliably by a precisely machined tab and slot design, ensuring perfect blade alignment for every shave.

The Blackbird safety razor reached its funding goal in just 5 days and there are still 22 days left of the campaign.

As they are a more high-end product, we probably won’t stock them but check out their hugely successful kickstarter here and while you’re at it, check out our own beautiful range of Safety Razors!
