Centuries of tradition. Decades of grown wood. A year of development. All for the moment of the perfect shave. The accomplished design of the blade is a tribute to Japanese blacksmithing. Let it glide across your face and feel the attention to detail that makes this piece iconic. The sustainable walnut, maple, spruce and beech wood of the handle handles have been compressed and hardened through a novel process to resist water and soap with ease. After shaving, the knife is much too good to disappear in the case: the polished tang and back as well as the innovative shape set visual accents.
SCOPE OF DELIVERY
Ultra compressed beech wood
14.5 cm x 2.4 cm x 1.1 cm
This razor is made of carbon steel with the material designation 1.2210, better known as silver steel. To achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
The exclusive handle combines tradition with modernity. The sustainable SwissWood beech wood from Switzerland is brought to an incredibly high hardness through an innovative compression process, so that the wood defies the adversities of water as well as soap and is thus in no way inferior to the longevity of the blade.
With hollow grinding, the razor is ground concave from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. The blade dynamics ensures a smooth shave accompanied by a very characteristic sound, which is triggered by the swinging of the razor at the hair section.
Razors in the size 5/8 inch are real all-rounders and can pass every task around the classic wet shave with flying colors. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide smoothly over your skin without much pressure. At the same time, it is still agile enough to be able to manage technically more demanding passages around the nose, ears and chin agilely.
