Carbon Steel & Ebony Straight Razor - Hunter Collection - 5/8"
Handcrafted entirely in the UK, we are proud to bring you our finest collection to date. The Benjamin Huntsman Collection is a collaboration between Barbarossa Brothers and bladesmith, Korben Bloomfield. Both logos are proudly displayed on the handle.
The collection pays homage to Sheffield's Benjamin Huntsman, one of the original creators of the straight razor, who produced decorated handles and hollow-ground blades made from cast steel, using a process he invented.
Let's get technical:
The blade is made from 80CrV2 steel which offers extreme toughness and strong edge retention. The billet is heated to 950 degrees C and forged out by hand to give a nice pattern once the bevels are ground, polished and coloured using Korben's ‘special black’ process.
The scales (handle)
We start by cutting the handles from a single piece of wood. The ebony is dried naturally and finished with oil. The scales are then profiled, shaped and finished all by hand before pairing with the blade. They have nylon washers and are held together with a peened phosphor bronze pin.
Each razor takes around 8-10 hours to produce and will last a lifetime with the right care and maintenance.
