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 scales have a simple elegance and are extremely durable while providing an excellent balance to the razor's edge. 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.

      Awesome straight razor

      The hone came perfectly packed. Carefully wrapped, ready to shave and with a layer of oil to protect the blade. I could not be happier with the choice. Besides the straight razor looks awesome. Thanks

      The razor works great, and i really like the shaving soap i purchased earlier. I had some trouble with declaration and taxes when my package arrived in Norway, but other than that i had no problems.

      Great heft, truly "razor sharp" - the hone was excellent! Great addition to my daily use straight razor collection!

      • Do you prefer a Safety Razor or Straight Razor? Straights, but I still give my face a break every once in while with a d.e. Slant
      • Do you prefer a Shave Soap or Cream? Soap - prefer tallow over glycerin
