This solid stainless steel safety razor set comprises of three base plates with varying blade gap, a top cap and a handle presented in a Karve branded box.
The steel has been bead blasted to a subtle matte finish. All aspects of manufacture are meticulously controlled to provide consistent performance and clean aesthetics.
The handle features a pattern inspired by a centuries-old technique called guilloche which is commonly used in watchmaking. The pattern is cut into the body of the handle, instead of formed, which ensures that all of the edges of the pattern are smooth and clean while delivering plenty of friction for wet fingers.
You really should invest in the matching Karve, solid stainless steel Inkwell Razor Stand.
Karve offers eight different levels of plates ranging from AA to G, G being the most aggressive. The combination of baseplates in this particular set is B, C & D while the handle is the 3 inches/ 91mm long.
B: Blade gap = 0.73mm
C: Blade gap = 0.85mm
D: Blade gap = 0.98mm
Blade gap is the space under the cutting edge, the bigger the gap the closer the shave will be. The B plate is ideal for beginners and for men with sensitive skin while the C and D plates deliver closer shaves.
Karve razors are on a quality par with the very best German and Japanese made razors expect superior engineering and great shaves!

The entire razor is constructed from solid 303 stainless steel and is bead blasted for a subtle matte finish. After bead blasting, all parts are passivated.
Passivation is a chemical process that is employed to ensure that the protective layer forms on virgin material, free of contaminants.
The parts are dipped in an acidic passivation solution (typically nitric acid or citric acid), which removes those impurities without harming the base metal. Once the part is removed and exposed to atmosphere again, chromium oxide forms and the protective layer is in place, with no impurities underneath.
And we’re talking thin! On average, the layer is only about 2 Angstoms thick. That’s only 0.0000002 mm or 0.000000008”!
Stainless steel components that are not passivated can corrode over time, which manifests itself in a few different ways. The parts may exhibit a reddish brown tinge or brown spots that become more pronounced over time.
Karve Shaving Co. has its own in-house passivation line and all stainless steel parts are passivated as a final manufacturing step.
