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 ground in a special way causing a marvelous interplay between the mirror polished and the ground areas.
The scales are made of black and white patterned ebony, which is considered to be one of the rarest and most expensive woods. In an elaborate process nicely patterned pieces, which are high in contrast and of crack-free quality, need to be selected by hand.
Ebony can be easily polished and is not prone to absorb large amounts of water, making it perfect as a material for scales.
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. The razor is delivered shave-ready.
Why a coarse and smiling blade?
Mainly before 1900 coarse blades had been manufactured. Without any further support the edges were honed by hand. Nowadays they are highly coveted amongst collectors. Their special honing enables you to guide the edge in smooth circles, which in contrast is not possible while using a today’s conventionally hollow ground 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.
