DiscommonAluminumStraightRazor

There are those who take a cheap razor to their face, swipe quickly, and finish up with bits of toilet paper attached to nicks across their mug. Then there are those who take their time and view shaving as a meditative practice. For the latter group (with cash to spare), there’s the Discommon Aluminum Straight Razor. Expertly machined out of aerospace grade aluminum, the $800 straight razor features a micro texture surface for better grip, which requires over 3 hours of machining for both scales. Each is hand polished, anodized in a gunmetal color, and accompanied by a leather carrying case made by This Is Ground. When eight blades and a vibrating handle aren’t your speed, the Aluminum Straight Razor from Discommon is your pricey alternative.
