At Classic Shaving, we believe in using simple, high-quality tools that you only need to buy once and will last a lifetime. Dylan Farnham's work delivers just that. From its hand-sculpted spine and stabilized Manzanita Burl handle to its crazy sharp hand-forged edge, this tool is usable art.

Here are the specs:

  • 1/4″ 1095 High-carbon Steel
  • Differentially hardened (using clay coating) and tempered to 63-64 Rockwell hardness
  • “Bark” textured Spine and Tang
  • Blade polished and etched to show hamon line
  • Stabilized Manzanita Burl Handle
  • Steel pins
  • Braided Deer skin lanyard died python vertebrae 
  • Antiqued bamboo box lined with elk skin

    All Farnham blades are honed, stropped and shave-ready.

    It's funny who you'll find literally in your backyard. In our case, it was a straight razor artisan, Dylan Farnham who has set up shop in the mountains of Idyllwild, CA. Remember his name, because this guy is the real deal. Not only does he shave with his own straight razor every other day, but get this: Dylan spent over a year riding a motorbike solo through South America, camping most nights. He depended on three blades made by his own hand to see him through—a non-folding straight razor, a larger Bowie-esque belt knife, and a 21 inch "short-sword". All three tools saw heavy use, but returned good as new. They are still in use today. That's a Dylan Farnham blade: a masterpiece of steel designed to do some serious work. Mixing rugged functionality with a sublime artist's hand, Dylan's straight razors are not only built to last for generations, they are aesthetically unlike any we have ever seen. Take a look for yourself. Check out his razors and some of his knives along with their technical specs on our website. We here at Classic Shaving couldn't be more proud to sell Dylan's line of custom straight razors and knives to our collection. Those of you lucky enough to grab these razors... enjoy!

    Dylan Farnham does it again

    This Kamisori is an exquisite piece of art. As is all of Dylan’s pieces are. If one is a collector or an aficionado to The Art if Shaving. Having the honor to own one of his Masterpieces is finer than owning the finest jewels in the world. Truly a jewel that will be pasted down fior generations to follow. Last, if you want one of Dylan’s Masterpieces, you better be on your game and ready to buy. The second it hits Classic Shaving’s website it’s gone. James F Houston, TX

    Dylan does it again

    Courtesy of Santa I received my first Farnham Kamisori. Just as beautiful as all of his work. This is my second Farnham Masterpiece. First, was Fractured Stone. Dylan’s work is beyond any words can express. If one ever gets the honor of owning a piece of his it will be forever cherished as it gets passed down generation after generation. James Foley
