R. Torrey & Co. manufactures razor strops and dressing-cases, and are situated at the corner of Piedmont and Chandler Streets. The business was begun in a very small way in 1858 by J. R. Torrey, with eight employees.

President of the J. R. Torrey Razor Company Joseph Turner was born in Sheffield. England. In the factory of Wade & Butcher, manufacturers of razors, well-known throughout the world, he learned his trade, Afterward he was employed in the manufacture of cutlery of various kinds in the other shops of Sheffield and he won the reputation of being one of the most skillful in his craft. in 1870, came to this country under contract with Heinisch & Sons, manufacturer of shears at Newark, New Jersey, as foreman of a razor manufacturing plant they were about to establish. From the beginning, one of the largest customers of Mr. Turner was the J. R. Torrey Company of Worcester, manufacturers of razor strops, and in 1880 a consolidation of the two plants was arranged between Mr. Torrey and Mr. Turner. The business was brought from Meriden to Worcester and continued under the name of the J. R. Torrey Razor Company, a corporation under Massachusetts laws, with Mr. Turner, president, and Mr. Torrey, treasurer. The combination of the razor and razor strop business greatly stimulated both concerns.

Straight Razor Care Instructions

Unlike any other shaving tools, straight razors require special care. The cutting edge must be protected from impacts and contact with any hard surface. After each shave you must clean and dry your straight razor with a soft paper towel without touching the very edge and strop it to keep it sharp. You can strop on the canvas side of your strop to clean the cutting edge after each shave.  Please do not try to sharpen your straight razor by yourself if you don’t have adequate honing experience, otherwise you can cause irreparable damage. You may consult our straight razor honing service. If you won’t be using your straight razor for a long time, it’s best to cover it with a thin coat of oil to keep it rust free. This is especially important for straight razors with carbon steels, as carbon steel is very prone to rust in humid conditions. Keep your straight razor in a dry place and out of children’s reach. 

CAUTION: Straight razors are serious tools for experienced users who know their faces, skins, whisker types and how to lather well. They can cause serious accidents and injuries in the hands of people without enough experience. If you’re enthusiastic about traditional wet shaving but don’t have the experience needed for using a straight razor, then we recommend checking out our double edge safety razors first.
