The 7/8ths blade is made from Japanese steel (similar in quality to to Shirogami steel).
With a Rockwell hardness of up to 64HRC, this blade will maintain its cutting edge longer than cheaper razors from China and Pakistan - you get what you pay for!

The Razor
Crafted from high quality Japanese Steel, harder than stainless steel so it will stay sharp longer before needing to be honed (Rockwell hardness of 60 and ranked among the best in the world).The gorgeous Indian Sandalwood wooden scales match the shaving brush. This razor is shave ready, it has been honed, stropped and tested.

Razor Specification
Blade Material High Quality Japanese Steel
Blade Dimensions 7/8" round point x 68-72 mm long
Hollow Ground
Handle Finish: real wood with metal inlay

The Brush
The stunning handle is made from Indian Sandalwood with a metal base and top plate. Filled with Silvertip Badger hair, it is sensationally soft on the face, while still having enough backbone to whip up a rich and creamy lather.

The Strop
The 2.5" wide two part leather and denim strop is perfect for keeping the razor in shave ready condition. Use the denim side for realigning the razors edge. Use the leather side to remove the burrs that form on the edge after shaving.S

Strop Paste
Use this on the leather side of the strop, it aids the stropping process.

The Wooden Box
This box has been hand crafted; no two boxes are exactly the same. The box is vented to allow air to circulate around the razor (always dry the razor before storing it). The box closes tight with the aid of a fancy metal clasp. Expect slight variancies between boxes and minor blemishes, these boxes are made by hand.

Sandalwood Shaving Cream
Lather up straight from the aluminium screw top tin. This sandalwod scented cream will deliver a rich, creamy lather to allow the razor to glide over the skin.
