This is the 2018 Special Edition 1 of 50 Razors.  Each year we will be releasing a special edition razor.  This is our first year offering this blade.  They will be numbered 1-50 on the backside of the blade in sequential order from first order to last. 

Every part of this Hart straight razor is created and assembled in the USA. Our steel is tested at a Rockwell hardness of 63, giving your razor the sharpest and most long-lasting edge possible. In the spirit of American cottage industry, our razors are created by Artisan Technicians (AT). One AT from start to finish, has hand ground, marked, sharpened, and assembled each razor. You'll find the AT's personalized mark proudly stamped on each razor to indicate his craftsmanship.

For everyday use, apply Classic Brand razor oil, for long term storage we recommend Sentry Solutions Tuf-Glide with Precision Applicator.
Each Hart razor comes with its own storage box, and care instructions.
What is Different About Hart Steel Razors?
  1. Each razor is made, from start to finish, by an individual craftsman. The initials on the tang are the maker's assurance of quality.
  2. All blades are made from new O-1 tool steel. There are no old forgings or “mystery metal”.
  3. All blades are surface ground before and after heat treating. These razors are guaranteed to be straight for ease of stropping and honing.
  4. All blades are heat treated in a molten salt bath. The salt protects the blades from decarberization and oxidation.
  5. All blades are frozen in liquid nitrogen. The deep freezing assures dimensional stability.
  6. All blades are triple tempered for a final hardness of 62 – 63 HRC.

    I purchased the Hart Steel 2018 Special Edition 50/50. I love it! Very sharp and a smooth shave. It is rugged, and the scales are very tough and simple. It is a permanent addition to my collection.

    I honed this razor and it shaves great! My second Hart and I recommend Hart steel. It takes a little longer to hone but the edge is worth it.
