Portland Razor Co. Kent of Inglewood 6/8 Razor, Round Point
A medium-sized razor such as this is perfect for any shaver. It has more weight than a European blade making it smoother and easier to shave with, while it is not so heavy that it becomes difficult for a novice to handle.This razor is the epitome of traditional craftsmanship and modern material technology. The rounded tip is easy to use for any skill-level but still offers expert precision.
This razor is made from high carbon steel, which is capable of amazing sharpness and great edge retention but requires a little extra care. Be sure to dry your razor well after every use, and oil with Tsubaki Oil or store in a dry place.
All straight razors must be stropped before use to straighten burrs and polish the edge for the smoothest shave possible. Be sure to use agood quality stropand accurate technique.
Honing/ Sharpening should be done on Japanese synthetic or natural whetstones. You can bring your blade into a Kent of Inglewood store to be honed, with the first time free on any blades purchased from us. Razor honing classes are also available at your nearest Kent of Inglewood location.
