6/8” Gentleman’s Straight Razor – Buffalo Horn Handle

Straight Razor Blade with Buffalo Horn Handle and Brass Inlay & Collars

This elegant straight razor was designed by us and made to our exalting standards. With a 6/8″ blade, you’ll be guaranteed a perfectly smooth and relaxing shave. With a steady hand and enough practice you’ll be able to achieve an expert shave using this  well balanced and stylish razor.

The keen edge of this 6/8” design allows the razor to pass cleanly through the hair ensuring you look handsome and fresh. No stray hairs remaining and none of the friction burn that comes with cheaper multi-bladed disposable razors.

The hollow ground profile of the blade not only allows it to take an incredibly sharp edge but makes that edge easier to maintain. A hollow grind remains thin the entire width so even after the thousandth strop the razor will slide beautifully across the face and through the hair.

The hardness of the edge is balanced so that it can be more easily stropped and honed to reach the perfect sharpness in fewer strokes, but not so soft that it will become dull in the middle of your shave. Ensuring that the shave stays even on every pass.

It’s hard to overstate the importance of the weight of a razor. This razor is weighted to allow for fine control. With practice and a steady hand you will be able to precisely control the angle and seamlessly follow the contours of your face and neck

The buffalo bone handle is a pleasure to hold and gives this razor an attractive finish that makes it a pleasure to see and hold.

Remember to strop your razor before every shave, and pat it dry after every shave to maintain a keen edge and prevent rust.

For the closest possible shave try using the Dublin Shaving Co. shaving oil and one of our high quality shaving soaps to lubricate the skin and soften the hair.

USE A STRAIGHT RAZOR FOR THE CLOSEST SHAVE POSSIBLE

When men first became serious about getting close shaves, the straight razor was their implement of choice. The sharp blade glides lightly and elegantly through even the toughest beard. These handcrafted shaving instruments represent a larger initial investment compared with other razors but, if properly maintained, will last a lifetime.

Tired of always forking out cash for those overkill, multi-blade, disposable cartridge razors? Do yourself a favour and make the investment in a straight razor. It’ll be some of your best-spent money.

STRAIGHT RAZORS WITH DISPOSABLE BLADES

Straight razors with disposable blades are used mostly for hygienic purposes. It requires breaking a double-edged blade in two pieces and using only one shaving edge at a time. Straight razors with disposable blades are ideal for manscaping – think of where your blade goes. Want that on your face too?

CARBON STEEL

Straight razors made from carbon steel can be honed to a sharper edge than stainless steel. But unlike stainless steel, a carbon steel blade requires a little more maintenance and needs to be oiled to prevent rusting.

 

PERSONALISED STRAIGHT RAZORS

At Manly Stuff, we like to think of ourselves as gift-giving experts, and we value customised gifts the most. Taking the extra time that goes into engraving a gift sends a message that often says more than the gift itself. As you search for personalised gifts for men, consider an engraved straight razor.

We offer laser engraving that’ll make the next gift you give a winner. And don’t forget that your own personal straight razor can also be engraved. After you’ve bought one for dad on Father’s Day and your best mate for his birthday, get one for yourself. Have your name engraved… or a gentle reminder to shave slowly and not cut yourself. In case you need reminding.
