Discommon "Stormtrooper" Straight Razor
Discommon "Stormtrooper" 6/8 Straight Razor
For the discerning super-soldier - this straight razor can handle any intergalactic rebellion. Custom cerakote titanium handles are regulation white, and much like stormtrooper armor, is designed to withstand the harshest environments (disclaimer: not blaster resistant).
The blade itself is black DLC coated, which is incredibly hard, and hard wearing, for the hard-living soldier. The 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). CNC milled aluminum spine spacer is anodized and laser etched, and the hardened steel stop pin holds the blade in the desired position 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.
