The ideal cut throat razor gift set, either for those looking to start using a straight razor or looking to expand their collection with a gorgeous Japanese steel cut throat razor.
This is a great price for such a comprehensive set.
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.
Blade Material High Quality Japanese Steel
Blade Dimensions 7/8" round point x 68-72 mm long
Handle Finish: real wood with metal inlay
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 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
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.
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!
HOW TO USE
The razor comes shave ready.
Lubricate the bearded area with lather from a good quality shaving soap or cream, for best results use a shaving brush.
For a close shave, we recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
We strongly recommend you watch some tutorial cut throat YouTube videos BEFORE your first shave.
You only need to apply minimal pressure, let the razor do the work.
This razor is extremely sharp, please be careful.
Very happy, in fact better than I expected, the razor needed stropped (no surprise so did Dovo and TI when I bought them) . Razor is indeed very hard, not needed to strop it and I've used it 6 or 7 times since first stropped!! Brush good quality too, box likewise, strop ...................hmm not so sure, not what I'm used to as I have only used leather before. Yep, good value for money, nice kit.
Great value, I could not have bought the items cheaper individually so I am happy with this deal. Its going to take me some time to get used to this new way of shaving, first two shaves were shall we say interesting........... I would recommend this set to anyone who is looking for a cut throat set with all the tools for under £200.00.
