AVAILABLE CUSTOM STRAIGHT RAZORS FOR SALE
***BOOKS ARE CLOSED***
That doesn’t mean I’m not making razors anymore, just not taking orders at present. Following my work on instagram (@edsonrazors) or here is the best opportunity to claim my work with some customization. All pieces available are marked as such.
All Razors Come Shave Ready and Have Been Honed w/ One Layer of Electrical Tape Over The Spine Unless Otherwise Noted.
13/16 Odin’s Edge “Honyaki” Custom Straight Razor
Size: ~ 13/16 (0.84”)
Cutting Edge: 2.85”
Weight: 2.5 oz
Scales: Desert ironwood burl
Model: Odin’s Edge
Grind: 1/4 Hollow
Comments: Despite it’s simple carbon steel makeup, this razor is also one of the best razors I’ve made to date. The razor was hand forged from sc145 steel which is a very clean steel w/ a lot of carbon (1.45%). This makes it ideal for clay coating and formation of a “hamon” during heat treat giving a honyaki style razor. While the razor was completely forged, it was done so leaving room to clean up completely. What makes this razor truly special is the hand finish to truly bring out that hamon. While damascus is very cool in the looks - these razors are actually hand finished to a higher polish to try and bring out that special hamon - hence the price of these razors compared to a machine finish razor. This hamon is so hard to capture in a photo (hence the professional ones) and is best viewed in video - see below:
Everything about this razor is hand finished - yes even the grind so no machine mark are present anywhere on this razor. This all takes time and that is very much how this piece is priced. Honed with a single layer of electrical tape over the spine.
The picture below is a professional photo of this razor (along with it’s brute brother razor listed above) and best captions the color of the ironwood and activity of the hamon. This is a fantastic piece and certainly is a step above much of my other work.
This is again only for the clean honyaki razor - the brute honyaki razor can be purchased above.
7/8-15/16 “Bamboosori” Stainless San Mai Custom Straight Razor
Size: ~ 7/8-15/16
Cutting Edge: 2.5”
Weight: 1.6 oz
Scales: Stabilized green maple burl in blue resin on g10 liners
Grind: Belly Full Hollow
Comments: This Bamboosori model is hand forged from my own stainless san mai made with 304ss and 1095 high carbon steel. This piece was left with some forge markings/scale and given an orange peel texture for added grip. The overall grind is a belly full hollow - this one will sing! Scales have complimentary bamboo filework. Honed with a single layer of electrical tape over the spine.
8/8 “Portobello Road” Stainless/Carbon Suminagashi Custom Straight Razor
Size: ~ 8/8 (1.02”)
Cutting Edge: 2.8”
Weight: 2.9 oz
Scales: Stabilized African Wenge w/ green Karalian Birch wedge spacer
Model: Portobello Road
Grind: Near Wedge
Comments: I’ve done a few Sheffield inspired choppers and have now honed in on the design to official call it a new model in my lineup that really fits my style currently. Featuring a barber’s notch, smiling edge and swayback spine, subtle thumbnotch with heel notch as well. Steel used in this one was an experiment in multilayer stainless and carbon steels. Think I got some weird carbon diffusion from this hence the exotic look. Core steel is hitachi blue2, which is a very clean carbon steel typically used for high end chef knives. This one features a near wedge grind, yet retains a narrow bevel. Scales are also Sheffield inspired in shape and are made from African Wenge (stabilized). Honed with a single layer of electrical tape over the spine.
Put this one on sale for no reason other than the weird etching near the toe.
15/16 “Odin’s Edge” Dragon Themed Fileworked Damascus Custom Straight Razor
Size: ~ 15/16
Cutting Edge: 2.85”
Weight: 4.5 oz
Scales: Fossilized sectional tiger coral individually peened to nickel/silver liners w/ tiger coral wedge
Model: Odin’s Edge
Grind: 1/4 Hollow
Comments: This is the most elaborate and quite possibly the best straight razors I’ve made to date. The damascus was completely made in house featuring ~200 layers of steel in a unique pattern w/ wrought iron salvaged from an 1800s wagon wheel and steel reclaimed from the PNW bandsaw steel. I very carefully controlled the pattern to ensure no wrought iron was near the edge to make sure the edge would fully harden. The filework on this razor is my dragon scales and dragon tail filework with a great flow to it, and more importantly it will not scratch your strop as I want my razors to not only look nice, but to be able to be actively used as well. The scales are my popular coffin scales with the most elaborate construction I’ve attempted using fossilized tiger coral on nickel/silver liners. These scales were some of the hardest I’ve made to date.
Everything about this razor is hand finished - yes even the grind so no machine mark are present anywhere on this razor (or scales for that matter). This all takes time and that is very much how this piece is priced. Honed with a single layer of electrical tape over the spine. This razor does have some heft being a 1/4 hollow and having scales on the more heavy side, but I still find it easy to maneuver in hand.
The picture on the left is a professional photo of this razor (along with it’s brother clad in mammoth tusk scales, which has already been sold). This is a fantastic piece and certainly is a step above much of my other work.
This is again only for the damascus razor in tiger coral scales.
