At long last, we have found it: The perfect beard-trimming tool. By crafting a blade shorter and skinnier than most, Ralf Aust has created a straight razor that is perfectly designed for trimming facial hair of all kinds. This blade can sneak in under the nose to line up a moustache just as well as it can shave a pesky neck-beard to create a more noble look.
By using true Solingen Steel, this blade will offer a top-notch shave and extreme precision thanks to a French point, a detail that some even dare to trim their nose-hairs with.

- All razors are guaranteed shave-ready by our staff.
- For help using your razor, we suggest you take a Straight Razor Shaving Class at one of our stores, or feel free to contact us for advice.
- 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 Blade 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 a good quality strop and accurate technique.
Honing/ Sharpening should be done on Japanese synthetic or natural whetstones. You can bring your blade in to 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.
