Detailed DescriptionBoth, outline and spine of the razor are mirror polished. In contrast, the tang design displays typical patterns which are formed during the forging process. The blade’s surface is easy to maintain and yet durable. The full hollow grind is satin finished, which causes a marvelous interplay between the mirror polished and the ground areas.
ScalesThe scales of the shaving razor are made of bog oak. Bog oaks are trunks of the oak tree, which have been lying in swamps from hundreds to thousands of years. Special acids and minerals of the swamp are dying the wood deep black. Although bog oak deposits are generally common, it is hard to find deep black, crack-free pieces. Thus, the demand of premium bog oak is rather high.
Brushing the wood makes it durable and gives it its distinctive, malleable appearance.
Together with bullseye rivets and polished spacers made of stainless steel the straight razor becomes a real masterpiece.
Koraat Knives exclusively for Esbjerg manufactures these straight razors. The used blanks are all made in Solingen. Scales and blade are handmade according to our demands and are delivered shave-ready.
Why a smiling blade?
Different from the conventional razor manufacturing, which uses hollow grinding machines, a smiling blade can only be ground freehand, allowing the grinder to make a gentle “bow”.
Smiling edges provide a very close shave, as you are able to attain spots, which would not be accessible with straight ones.
