About this Koraat razor
This is a beauty. The blade is wonderfully made, with classic lines.
The scales and spacer are the beautiful originals, made of wild olivewood and brass. I have tried to show the colour in the scales in the photographs. The quality of the blade edge is now excellent. The razor was taped during the honing process by me to protect the design of the spine. The steel honed beautifully on an Ardennes Coticule.
If you want an excellent shaving razor made in the tradition of fine knives and razors, this is for you. It is sold with its beautiful presentation box.
My share of the profits will be donated to a Foodbank - everyone wins.
Please note that the photos were taken after the blade was honed
What's been done?
The razor has been sterilized in Barbicide solution
A new bevel set on the blade with a Naniwa Chosera 1k, followed by my favourite Ardennes Coticule for the famously smooth feel. The razor was then stropped on linen, Latigo and Cordovan shell.
The blade passes the "hanging hair test", for what that's worth. More importantly the blade's edge is smooth! It is now ready for use by you.
