Damascus & Maple Straight Razor - Hunter Collection - 6/8"
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 damascus is made from 80crv2 and 15n20 carbon steel. These steels are stacked in alternating layers and forged by hand into a bar that is re stacked until it reaches around 320 layers. These layers are forged in a way that creates a ‘random’ pattern which is revealed after the blades have been heat treated, ground to shape, hand polished and etched in acid.
The scales (handle)
We start by cutting the handles from a single piece of wood. The maple is dyed and stabilised. These are 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.
