Straight razor blade
The straight edge razor blade - its quality is what determines the closeness of the shave. The steel that is used in this razor blade is a particularly high-quality alloy: Japanese tempered steel similar to Shiro-Gami Steel, also known as white paper steel. This plain carbon steel achieves a hardness of 63 Rockwell, which allows immensely sharp blades to be produced. They are particularly effective in shaving with their extremely fine cutting angles of between 15 and 20 degrees. A gentle, yet close shave - two apparently contradictory requirements, yet the steel in this blade amply fulfills both. The gold-etched logo on the mirror polished razor blade guarantees the gentle, close shave and durable edge of a straight edge razor from A.P. Donvoan.
To ensure that your straight razor is well balanced when it sits in your hand, you need the right weight balance between the blade and the handle. Heavy hardwoods are the best natural material to provide an adequate weight balance to the steel of the blade. The hand grips are made from intricately crafted mahogany wood sourced from the forests of Madagascar. The wood that grows on the island in the Indian Ocean is characterized by a dark, reddish brown color and unusual hardness. This luxurious mahogany wood is the ideal complement to the high grade steel used in the blade. Let our perfect symbiosis of steel and wood fascinate you. Keep everything firmly in your grip while shaving with A.P. Donovan's masculine products.
Every A.P. Donovan straight edge razor is supplied in a decorative case made from real wood. The elegance of the box is further enhanced by arabesque carvings in the lid and the finely worked metal lock. A velour-lined foam insert reliably protects the handle and blade of the razor from scratches. As an optical centerpiece in your bathroom, or as a secure transportation case when traveling, this box is as fine as the razor it protects.
