Vintage Straight Razors
Restored. Honed. Rehomed.
Thank you for visiting. I am Huw, owner of the Rasals website.
Rasals is my website devoted to the restoration of, and shaving with, beautiful vintage straight razors.
I love to restore these fine razors. It's the best hobby in the world to have! Plus, my hobby benefits charity, as all profits go to support the work of a Food-bank (a Food-Pantry) and other important charities. My service is second to none, I pride myself on it. After all, I believe in selling fine straight razors, not cut-throat business.
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.
Rasals means razors in Welsh - I live in beautiful Gwynedd, Wales and the razors are restored with Welsh passion, sharp as our renowned wits.
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)?
Shaving with a Straight Razor benefits the environment.
The Straight Razor is the antithesis of today's disposable culture. Using a restored Straight Razor is probably the lowest environmental impact shave possible.
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! Every razor sold comes with a guarantee and complimentary service.
