Straight Razor Designs

Straight Razor Designs was started in 2007 by Lynn Abrams and Don Addleman, two of the most recognized names in the wet shaving industry. We strongly felt that there was a need for a store to not only be able to provide the best products and information available, but to be able to provide the best consultation and support from people who actually are wet shavers and straight razor shavers.
Lynn is the founder of the first and original straight razor forum on the internet, The Straight Razor Place and probably has more straight razor honing and sharpening experience than anyone in the world. Lynn was named “The Honemeister” for his exceptional abilities by the late Ray Dupont of Classic Shaving and has set the standard for sharpening razors globally. He has been shaving with a straight razor since 1973 and has been the driving force in growing the straight razor shaving population worldwide for over 10 years. His instructional DVD, The World of Straight Razor Shaving, is still considered a must have tool for beginners learning to shave with a straight razor.

Don is renowned for his expertise in the safety razor environment and is considered an expert when it comes to men’s toiletries. He is also a highly qualified razor sharpener and has honed thousands of straight razors.
