I made my first prototype 5 years ago, and have finally gotten the machines to make these razors 100% in-house! I am super proud of these - from looks to performance, they are everything I hoped for!
This razor is designed to be efficient, low on blade feel, and perfect for your everyday shave. The stubble groove is wide and virtually clog-proof. Efficient enough for a single pass shave, but mild enough that a 3 pass would be no issue, and buffing is just fine. I'm not sure if it's useful to compare this razor to others or not, but the blade gap is 1.12mm. We recommend "ridding the cap", or resting the cap against your face and angling the handle until you get a good cut. We think that this is preferable over the other common method of resting the safety bar against the skin, and angling the handle away from the face until a good cutting angle is achieved, as it puts less pressure on the lather used, theoretically leaving more in place for the blade to glide on.
This razor is 100% brass, and 100% made in the USA. As it is brass, you have a choice - polish it regularly to maintain its shine, or let it patina to a dark, traditional brass finish.
These razors are polished, but there will be minor marks still visible - similar to how a mirror polished razor would look after a couple shaves. This saves us time, and you money with no difference in the long run, provided you are buying this to use, and not keep in the case.
The case is carved from solid aluminum billet, and lined with oiled cowhide at the rub points. The Legacy is a solid razor that will last for generations, with an absolutely unparalleled heirloom presentation box.
This is not just a razor pulled from a machine en-mass. This is a small production product made in a garage with love and care. Each custom razor comes with a card with its # in our production sequence. We made the heads some time ago before we had the handles sorted out, so it's very possible that it will have last year on the date engraving.
I stand behind my work 100% and any defects will be repaired or replaced free of cost. We offer premade options and custom orders. All razors have a 100% 30-day refund policy (provided the razor is returned in new condition).
This is an awesome razor! And not just on looks. This razor has a 1.12mm blade gap. It felt like there was neutral blade feel. The shave was fantastic. Rob at Groomatorium recommends riding the top cap for a smooth efficient shave. I normally ride the top cap so that was no problem. He was right. In one pass I had a DFS shave. Two passes WTG I had a BBS shave. It just glided over my face. It was very easy to hold with the birdcage handle. Plenty of area to grip without slippage and easy to manuever. This is my new daily driver.
Not only is this a beautifully crafted razor, but the shave is extremely efficient and smooth. Truly a work of functional art!
