Parker 6/8 Shave Ready Cut Throat Razor Walnut (D)
This Parker cut throat razor ticks all the boxes, handmade in the USA, it comes shave ready, it benefits from real walnut wood scales and it will deliver the closest possible shave.
One individual was responsible for hand grinding, sharpening and assembling this razor. Parker say 'In the spirit of American cottage industry, every part of a Parker straight razor is created and assembled in the USA., from start to finish, by an individual craftsman'.
With its 6/8ths of an inch (19mm) wide blade this razor is suitable for beginners and experienced cut throat users. This razor makes for a nice gift as it comes in a wooden presentation box.
Blade width: 6/8ths of an inch (19mm)
Square point nose with hand carved file jimps on the inside edge of the tang for added control and safety while shaving.
*Each blade is surface ground before and after heat-treating. These razors are guaranteed to be straight for ease of stropping and honing.
*Heat treated in a molten salt bath. The salt protects the blades from decarburization and oxidation.
*Frozen in liquid nitrogen. The deep freezing assures dimensional stability.
*Triple tempered for a final hardness of 62-63 HRC.
*Finish honed on a vintage Escher hone and hand stropped. Every blade is 'shave-ready' right out of the box.
Each razor comes complete with a real Cherrywood Parker branded presentation box and a anti-moisture cotton sheath.
With great care, this razor is surgically sharp. We strongly recommend that you watch a few YouTube tutorial videos on how to shave with a cut throat razor before your maiden shave.
Keep this razor well away from children and psychopaths!
This razor has it all: It's shave ready, USA made, with presentation / storage box included, it's triple tempered and already honed and stropped for 'out of the box immediate use'.
Parker razors are a viable alternative to the French Thiers-Issard and German Dovo razors.
You will need to buy a strop to maintain the razors edge. Consider buying a Parker handmade, USA strop.
Blade material: 0-1 Tool Steel (silver steel) with silk / matte finish
Scales: Real walnut wood
Presentation Box: Real Cherrywood
