The Sixty8 Provisional Blue Collar Safety Razor is just as special as our White Collar razor, just built with price and obtainability in mind.
Hand made with pride here in Chicago, IL.
Starting off with the handle. Our design / Made for us in a small, family owned machine shop right outside the city that's so "oldschool" they don't even have a website ! Finished in a striking chrome finish with subtle knurling to help keep a good grip while wet. We added what we call "control points" on top and bottom of the knurling for your fingers to rest, giving you complete / balanced control of the razor during the shave. All of this is just not for design, for functionality.
The head of the razor is slightly oversized to give a good weight balance / feel while shaving and also for exceptional good looks. All of our razors feature a 45-degree approach angle. We even went as far as to manufacture a polished base for the razor to live in while not in use. Has the same polished finish as the razor handle, and features a non-slip base so it wont slide around no matter where it is kept.
Like all of our products we feel the presentation is just as important as how the product itself works. We put as much time into the box & packaging of the razor as we did on the razor itself. Each box is Sawed, Stained, Assembled, and finished by hand here in Chicago. Each box is handmade and no one box is the same as the other. As all of our razor boxes the contents can easily be removed and the box repurposed. Custom CNC insert designed and created by our friend Chris over at InsightSignCompany.com here in Chicago.
Each razor comes with a pack of 10 Feather brand double sided razor blades so when given as a gift the recipient is ready to go without having to purchase anything else.
* Please Note: All of our Razors are made by hand here in Chicago, IL USA. With that being said, expect some play in the head of the razor itself when a blade is not in the razor. This "slack" or "rattle" will go away once the blade itself is in the razor and is tightened down before use.
* Orders ship out of Chicago, IL on Mondays of each week.
