About Rasals

Welcome to Rasals




Croeso!  I am Huw, owner of Rasals. Thank you for visiting.

Rasals is my website devoted to the restoration and shaving with beautiful vintage straight razors.


Why Rasals?

Rasals means razors in Welsh - I live in beautiful Gwynedd, Wales and the razors are restored with Welsh passion, sharp as our renowned wits!

I have started this site to showcase my restoration work and, hopefully, infuse you with my passion for shaving with these wonderful razors.  Each razor has its story, the restoration process becomes part of that story.  


Shave with a Straight Razor?

Shaving with a straight razor is a skill that's worth mastering.  Shaving with a straight razor is fun.  When was the last time that shaving was fun for you?  There are a number of reasons why you should consider shaving with a straight razor; not only is it better for your skin, but it's better for the planet too. Why shave with a 5-blade plastic cartridge razor, which is used a couple of times (before being discarded to spend an eternity in waste tip)?


Proud to provide you with your first or next Straight Razor.

Every razor I restore becomes a favourite of mine - it's hard to see them going to a new owner! My customer service is second to none, I pride myself on it. After all, I believe in selling fine straight razors, not cut-throat business.


Glad to be of service.
