Unique and Colorful Shave-Ready Straight Razor with Vintage Blade and Handcrafted Scales

$239.00

This absolutely unique, bright and intricate straight razor sports a finely-crafted handle incorporating three layers consisting of four exotic hardwoods: cherry burl, african blackwood, redheart and yellowheart. This cutthroat's scales were carefully bonded together and finished with a glossy and highly water-resistant teak oil finish.

Such beautiful scales call for an equally handsome razor. The fully-restored, vintage (and shave-ready) blade chosen for this instrument fits the bill.

Hardware is copper and brass, and wedge is constructed of cherry burl.
