Wacker recognizes something many razor makers don’t; your basic razor model doesn’t have to be boring, it can have flair and attitude! The Wacker “Traditional” sports a hefty 7/8 blade, and the extra weight makes it easier for a first-time user to shave with. A straight razor is a lifetime investment that you’ll be looking at for a long time, and Wacker chooses to beautify this blade with gold embossing and water-buffalo horn scales.

- 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 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.
