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!

I would first like to mention the fantastic customer service that I received from Classic Shaving. After attempting to purchase a separate product from Dylan Farnham, the product was deemed to be unacceptable to ship. Kellilynn from customer service was fantastic in explaining the situation and offering support for a replacement purchase. This razor was my "replacement" purchase and I could not be happier. When I first saw this razor on the web page I was immediately drawn to it, but was hesitant to purchase a straight razor as I have only been shaving with a safety razor since I learned to shave (I am 51). There is no way to put into words how incredible this piece is. This razor is nothing short of magnificent! The material is simply gorgeous and the detail work is unreal. The entire package (case included) is truly a work of art. The razor is phenomenally sharp and shaves better that I ever imagined. It shaves so much closer than my safety razor that I am honestly amazed. The best part of this is actually shaving with it. A truly remarkable experience every time I use it. One final benefit is that all of my friends who have seen the razor (including my barber) are completely envious and interested in purchasing something for themselves.
