Discommon "Deadpool" Straight Razor
Discommon "Deadpool" 6/8 Straight Razor
These unusual handles are anodized a custom color of red, specifically inspired by the infamous and mercurial comic book/movie character.
The blade is black DLC coated, which is incredibly hard, and hard wearing, for the hard-living superheroes. The 6/8 Inch Blade Z-FiNit blade steel is a nitrogen steel - a family of steels that offer extreme corrosion resistance. After water jet profiling and surface grinding, Peters Heat Treat achieves between 60-61 rockwell hardness on the blade. It is DLC coated at Richter Precision, one of the top PVD facilities in the world, and is completed with all black PVD hardware.
The unique "dual concave grind" blades are hand ground by Joseph Bowen in his signature style, with enough concavity to still allow traditional honing (the "step" tapers to zero at cutting edge and the concave keeps it off the stone). The CNC milled aluminum spine spacer is anodized and laser etched. The razor also comes with a hardened steel stop pin to hold the blade in the desired positino, to prevent dulling of the blade when closed.
The final hone is completed at Razor Emporium by the esteemed Eric Engle to ensure a shave ready razor is shipped out. Custom leather and felt carry case was made by the fabulous folks at LA's This is Ground.
