Our philosophy: Striving for perfection
Straight razors are the royal class of cutlery. More than 100 steps are necessary for a single knife. It takes many years of experience to master each step. Our specialists craft masterful one-of-a-kind pieces in steel with attention to detail and great craftsmanship. The expertise, refined over generations, allows us to exceed the high standards of the Solingen Ordinance.
With the classic wet shave, your razor should be set at a 30 degree angle. With your free hand, pull the targeted skin areas straight so that you can always work on a flat surface. With short pulls, you first take care of the smooth areas such as baking or neck. Always work with the stroke and make sure that you always move the knife towards the cutting edge – never along it. It becomes a little more complicated on the chin and jaw – here you can pull beautiful grimass and tighten your skin particularly tight, so that no skin wrinkles get in the way or you have to “drive” a narrow curve radius with the knife. You can wipe your razor on a soft cloth after a few strokes or hold it briefly under water to free it from hair and soap residues, but please do not touch the edge of your knife.
A wet shave like the master barber
Wet shaving with the razor is easier than you think. The preparation is important, because a dry beard hair is about the same thickness as a copper wire. First let the beard hair soak with a good soap, then spread the leather razor with the stroke in short strokes and an angle of 30° across the skin. If necessary, you can perform a second pass against the line.
Soaking the beard
When applying the shaving foam, it is best to start with moustache and chin – they are the critical regions when shaving and need a little extra exposure time. Then you continue working over your neck and baking until your whole face is covered with foam. Give the foam a quiet 5 minutes time to soften your beard hair thoroughly.
Before you start with your shave, start pulling your knife. To do this, you first stroke with your hand over the removal strap to remove dust and dirt. Now you gently place your knife with back and cutting edge on the tightly tensioned strap and pull the blade towards the back of the blade without much pressure. Don’t forget to keep the strap on tension, otherwise you may damage the razor burr. When you arrive at the end of the strap with the blade back, turn the knife over your back and start the procedure on the other side of the blade. After 10-15 rounds, your knife is ready for a gentle shave.
