Standard Razors / by john cheng

There has been a growing popularity to go back to the old school ways of shaving, using either straight razors or safety blades. The initial thought of having one single razor sharp blade touching my face was quite unsettling, but after reading more and entertaining the thought a bit more, it doesn't seem so bad. Plus it is supposed to be more economical.

Along my search for various types of safety razors, I found this beautifully designed precision-machined, aircraft grade aluminum safety razor. Standard Razors has really created a beautiful straight to the point razor with no added fluff, purely designed around function and simplicity.

I'll have to think a bit more about actually shaving with a safety blade before I dive into purchasing one of these myself, but I think that will be fairly soon.
