The General

 

Introduction

The General is an Artist Club single edge safety razor designed in-house, CNC machined out of 316L stainless steel in the USA by a skilled machinist with 20+ years of experience, and finished with an elegant glass bead blast that will add classiness to any gentleman’s bathroom.

This version is an engineering and aesthetic improvement of the original design (circa 2016-2018).

 

“An essay in razor design.”

 

Inspiration

The General's handle design was inspired by the tapered shape of a cannon and is uniquely decorated with a pattern of rings, circles, and flutes.  The razor is proudly named in honor of Henry Knox, who first served as Chief Artillery Officer of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.

 

“We want great men who, when fortune frowns, will not be discouraged.”

-General Henry Knox

 

 

Performance

The razor head's precise geometry rigidly clamps and secures the blade, eliminating blade chatter and flex.  As a result, it provides an efficiently smooth shave when used properly by allowing the weight of the razor do the work.  

The razor is perfectly balanced and feels wonderfully nimble in the hand.  It has a positive blade exposure and is rated as a 6/10 on the aggression scale.

Head Weight: 33.3 grams

Handle Weight: 56.5 grams

Handle Length: 93 mm

Threading: M5 x 0.8 mm

Most other razor handles are compatible.

 

Blade Compatibility

Feather Professional, Feather Professional Super, Feather ProGuard, Feather Soft Guard, Kai Captain Original, Kai Captain Sharpblade, Kai Captain Titan Mild, Kai Captain Titan ProTouch MG, Schick Proline P-30, Kamisori.

Feather Professional Light is not compatible.

Feather Professional and Schick Proline P-30 are the two blades that we personally recommend.  If you want a more aggressive shave, then a Feather Professional Super would be the choice.
