Blue Steel Straight Razor by Baxter

Before the MBA types at Gillette and Schick got their hands on modern shaving equipment, razors had one blade and you could sharpen it yourself using a leather belt or a stone next to the sink.

This straight razor by Baxter is the last razor you’ll ever need, it’s manufactured in the USA by Hart Steel and the blade has a Rockwell hardness of 63, that’s harder than anything this side of a diamond.

It costs $240 USD and you can grab one here via Baxter of California.
