Handcrafted Double Edge Safety Razor Orange
Double Edge Safety Razor Creation
We are very happy to be partnering with David James to bring our customers beautiful handmade resin double edge safety razors. David individually hand pours and hand turns every double edge safety razor handle.
He starts the process using a clear resin and then mixes different pigments, dyes and powders to create each of the individual colours. David then pours and layers the resin with the colours into a mould to create the ‘blank’. He then uses a lathe to turn and shape the safety razor handle. He sands the safety razor handle to a very high grit and then polishes it for a high shine. David has selected a 316ss Insert with a Yaqi head. David then glues the yaqi insert into the safety razor handle. Often shaving brush and safety razor makers purchase the blanks and then craft the safety razor handle on a lathe. David however makes the ‘blank’ for our safety razor handles himself.
This handcrafted double edge safety razor orange can be paired with the matching orange handcrafted shaving brush or several other of our handcrafted shaving brushes to make a beautiful handcrafted shaving set.

Double Edged Safety Razor Information
First of all, a safety razor is a razor that has a bar or protective device. Only a small amount of the blade is exposed, as it is positioned between the blade and the skin. The initial purpose of the bar or device was to protect the person shaving by reducing the level of skill required to shave. In addition there are variations in the razor head designs. These include the straight safety bar (SB), open comb or toothed (OC) bar, adjustable razors, and slant bar razors.
Double Edged safety razors have previously been considered old school, however they have become popular again in recent years. This can result there in long term cost savings, sustainability (the ability to recycle the blades) and for a large percentage of people a less irritating shave.
