A straight razor has been a traditional method of shaving for over 300 years. These razors were originally made in Sheffield, England, and are constructed with the blade folding into the handle, which themselves have been designed from a range of materials including resin, wood, bone, and even mother of pearl. These razors are extremely sharp and must be used with extreme care though, that aside, some would argue that this is the only way to shave.
Shaving with a classic razor has its own characteristics and at Taylor of Old Bond Street we have shared these steps with customers for many years. Follow our step by step guide for the closest of shaves and will leave you well-prepared for the rest of your day.
