This single edge razor is made from solid 7075 aircraft grade aluminium by Above the Tie in Tennessee, USA. Each razor is individually machine tooled to incredibly tight tolerances.
This version features a unique bamboo shaped handle which delivers excellent grip and control.
This razor is lightweight, weighing in at only 37.5g. This gives you superb control and manoeuvrability when shaving. The wide, single blade head also means less passes are need to shave closer.
Designed to use Feather single edge razor blades, these blades are sharper and longer lasting than traditional double edged razor blades. See below for compatible blades.
Shaving with a single edge razor is a close as you get to using a cut throat razor, but without the hassle. It is simple to use and very close shaving.
Pair it with the Above the Tie aluminium inkwell stand, to keep it safe and secure.
The head and handle are machine tooled from from solid 7075 aircraft grade aluminum - not investment cast.

If you have used a safety razor then the technique needed for using a single edge is very similar.
What you will notice is the width of the head and the lightweight of this razor.
Take your time, use a sharp blade and a quality, lubricating shaving cream and you're half way there. We recommend Castle Forbes or Executive Shaving Natural Shaving Cream as they are the most lubricating creams around.
It has to be said, Above the Tie make stunning razors. I love that you can see the machine tool marks on the underside of head and I love the flawless finish on all their razors. As a ex toolmaker (Timex) I appreciate the superior engineering on these razors.
If you are looking for a single edge razor but don't want to spend over £100.00, then consider The Claymore which is also made from solid stainless steel and is only £69.50.
