Dark Stag German Cut-throat Razor
The Dark Stag German Cut-throat Razor is our premium straight razor. The perfect tool for an old school, close shave. We teamed up with Böker to produce this sublime 5/8″ razor. Böker have hand-crafted the blade out of carbon steel, the black handle is made from moisture resistant synthetic, perfect for the wet conditions when shaving. We have made the blade with carbon steel, achieving a high retention of sharpness on the hollow ground blade. The cutting edge is supplied fully polished and ready to shave.
The Dark Stag German Cut-throat Razor combines the traditional look Dark Stag strives to cultivate with the forging and techniques that Böker have mastered in their chosen craft. The entire blade has been hand crafted with carbon steel, ideal for retaining the perfect edge. This is fantastic for extending the life of your product, and ensuring it is fit for use shave after shave after shave. The blade comes with an extra hollow grind with belly, a sublime 5/8″ traditional razor. A hollow ground blade flexes more easily and provides better feedback on the resistance the blade meets while cutting hair. This is the indicator of blade sharpness. We have found hollow ground blades are preferred by most barbers and home users. When combined with a rounded edge on the ‘corners’ of the blade, which lacks any sharp end points, it makes for a far more forgiving blade.
The scales of the German Cut-throat Razor have been crafted out of moisture resistant synthetic. This is perfect for the wet conditions of shaving, as it makes it non-slip and prevents rotting or full scale disintegration. This material is lightweight, yet durable, perfect for every day use. The scales have been painted a cool and collected black, perfect for the stylish modern man. All of this has been hand-crafted in Solingen, Germany by Böker to optimise and extend the life of your Dark Stag German Cut-throat Razor.
