The Blades Grim Straight Razor

The straight razor is hardcore. It is cut-throat sharp, dangerous, and yet has always maintained its notoriety of providing the benchmark kind of shave to which every other razor is compared. Some joke that straight razor shaving is an esoteric art practiced only by mentally unstable people with a death wish, and a new brand on the market expands on this idea. This article takes a look at an interesting newcomer to the straight razor world: The Blades Grim.

For generations, men traveled to a barber for a weekly or regular shave with a straight razor. The invention and mass production of disposable razor blades provided men the convenience of shaving from home without the stropping and honing that is required of straight razors. While most switched to safety razors or cartridge razors, many still prefer the traditional style of the straight edge razor. The Parker SR1 Stainless Steel Straight Edge Razor offers the convenience of disposable blades with the look and feel of the iconic straight razor.

At first glance, the No. 105 “En Vogue” Ivory Micarta Straight Razor looks like any other quality straight razor produced by Dovo. It is a standard size and shape, and the ivory color scales have a traditional grain. However, on closer inspection, this razor has a hidden surprise. The ice tempered frozen steel is decorated with a beautiful swirl on the blade that loosely mimics a Damascus steel pattern. More imporantly, the high-quality stainless steel maintains a very sharp edge. The No. 105 is classic with a contemporary twist.

When it comes to traditional shaving in today's world, people typically are drawn to either Double Edge (DE) razors or Straight Blade razors. Both are excellent workers and have their fans; however, there is a small niche market in the Straight Blade category that deals with Straight Blade razors that have disposable blades.

Among the benefits of enjoying traditional shaving is the ability to meet exceptional people. A few years ago, I befriended Joe Chandler, a gifted straight-razor craftsman. I have had the priviledge of owning a razor from his early days as well as some newer models. Without a doubt Joe's work is some of the best out there.
