The Blade: With its smooth, satin finish, this 6/8" blade has a quarter hollow grind, a round point and jimps on the underside of the tang.

Choose your Custom Scale: Whether you choose the refined sophistication of a quality resin scale or the Old World allure of a premium hardwood scale, the choice is all yours. Replacement scales are also sold separately and can easily be swapped out.

Each Hart razor comes with its own storage box, a hex wrench, and an instructional manual.  For everyday use, apply Classic Brand razor oil; for long term storage we recommend Sentry Solutions Tuf-Glide w/Precision Applicator.

What is different about Hart Steel razors? 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 and the maker’s assurance of quality.

Our steel is tested at a Rockwell hardness of 62 – 63, giving your razor the sharpest and most long-lasting edge possible. The one-piece scales have a simple elegance and are extremely durable while providing an excellent balance to the razor's edge. The scales are attached by a hex screw so the user can easily tighten or loosen to his preference as well as re-scale the razor. The addition of hand carved file jimps on the inside edge of the blade's tang provide extra grip and control while shaving.

The Hart Steel blades are made from 0-1 tool steel, never old forgings or “mystery metal”. The blades are surface-ground before and after heat-treating in a molten salt bath. The salt protects the blades from decarbonization and oxidation. The blades are then frozen in liquid nitrogen, which assures dimensional stability. Each blade is triple-tempered for a final hardness of 62 – 63 HRC.

      Excellent quality I am accustomed to from Hart Steel

      I did not have to strop this from the box. Really shave ready.

      A true masterpiece

      A hefty blade, perfectly done with a slightly smile shaped edge, but not as pronounced as for example Wade&Butcher's blade is. Beautiful scales and very robust in the same time matching perfect with the weight of the blade. It came very well oiled and the package well wrapped. I have no complain and I am very satisfied with this second purchase from Classic Shaving.The first one was for a 6/8 square point, Cocobolo scales, also Hart Steel straight razor.. Excellent service and products!

      Wickedly Sharp

      Very nice razor. Handles well. Selected the basic black scales, with the intent of upgrading to the faux ivory scales offered but Hart Steel. Opted for the honing service, well worth the extra money.

      An old-school experience

      Running something this sharp across the face forces one to take their time and do it right. While it's not the thing for a quick shave while you're running late for a formal event, it does a great job and after about a month, I find that it causes far less irritation than the modern 3-bladed razor I used prior. While most instructional videos say to start with the cheeks, I already prefer to start with the more curvy, difficult parts of the face when the blade is at its sharpest. Shaving those parts (especially just under the nose) does a lot to explain some of the facial hair styles of the past, particularly the (Ahem) "Charlie Chaplain" mustache. Right now, I'm just experimenting with different soaps and techniques and so far, I haven't cut myself. My goal is to not allow my growing confidence to become over-confidence, especially around major blood vessels.

      • How long have you been Wet Shaving? About a month.
      • Do you prefer a Safety Razor or Straight Razor? Don't know yet, I can't seem to find a good US made, butterfly-opening safety razor.
      • Do you prefer a Shave Soap or Cream? Creams haven't worked well for me in the past so I've only used soap so far.
      • Have You Ever Tried a Pre-Shave Oil or Lotion? Not yet.
