Improvements from the Original Design (2016-2018):

  • 27% reduction in head size made possible by a keyway cutout in the threaded rod. The modified threaded rod could not be broken or even budged when we tried snapping it in half with our hands during R&D. 
  • Significant reduction in blade reveal (i.e., the blade protrusion from the top cap) to maximize rigidity and prevent blade chatter.
  • Geometric modifications to perfect the blade clamping mechanism.
  • Wider lather slot.
  • Longer threaded rod to increase the thread engagement with the handle.
  • Improved symmetry and balance. 

 

Designed in-house in Birdsboro, PA and machined in the USA. 

 

”During the first shave with this razor, I found myself laughing out loud at times due to the epicness of the shave. This version, after numerous shaves and having experience with vintage and modern SE razors, leads me to believe that we have created one of the best SE razors ever.”  -Kyle 

 

”Like a wedge straight razor, but with the comfort of a safety bar.”  -Kirk
