Straight razors are serious business. Colonel Kurtz has nightmares about them. Mr. Blonde removes ears with them. Terry Crews throws one into a guys neck. They’re not just weapons; they can also be used to shave that nasty hipster growth on your face that you just so happen to call a beard. In the world of straight razors, the Baxter Blue Steel “Not a Replica” is the Bentley of straight razors – gorgeous, unique and pricey. The razor is a Hart Steel blade (Rockwell hardness 63) that is individually ground, marked, sharpened and assembled by hand. The blade is paired with a MAKR Carry Goods sleeve crafted from navy Horween Cordovan leather. Let’s be honest, if you’re shelling out $240 for the razor itself, you’re going to throw down the extra $85 for the sleeve.
