Both, outline and spine of the razor are mirror polished. In contrast, the shank’s design displays the typical patterns that emerge during the forging process. The blade’s surface is easy to maintain and yet durable. The blade’s grind is made in a special way, which causes a marvelous interplay between mirror polished and ground areas.
The scales are made of snake wood.The snake wood is recovered from the Brosimum guianense. The from Brosimum guianense provided wood has fine pores, maroon and characterized by blackish, radial streaks that give it a snake skin-like appearance. Brosimum guianense is a South American tree, which belongs to the family of the Mulberry family. Their wood is distinguished by special structure and extreme hardness.
Together with bullseye rivets and polished spacers made of stainless steel the straight razor becomes a 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. All the straight razors are delivered shave-ready.
Why a coarse and smiling blade?
Mainly before 1900 coarse blades had been manufactured. Without any further support the edges were ground by hand. Nowadays they are highly coveted amongst collectors. Their special grinding enables you to guide the edge in smooth circles, which is not possible while using a today’s conventionally hollow grind straight razor.
Smiling edges provide a very close shave, as you are able to attain spots, which would not be accessible with straight ones.
Coarse blades are especially suitable for thick and strong facial hair, as the blade’s weight already provides a smooth gliding; no further effort is needed.
