So, it is like the brand of kings and queens.
This is a 13/16” size Joseph Rodgers & Sons Straight Razor. It is quarter hollow grind close to the wedge and is a very heavy and meaty model. It is approximately 150 years old and in good condition for its age. There are spot corrosion stains in certain areas on it, but the general cleanliness is good. We gave the steel a brushed finish and made scales made of Wenge wood for this razor. The model, which has a harder and tougher steel than the usual Sheffield steel, can reach high sharpness.
This straight razor, which also has a high collection value, will offer a very effective shave to its user. We recommend it to our experienced friends.
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.
