The Blackbird Closed Comb or Safety Bar is a modern double edged safety razor which is designed, machined and finished in the USA.
The design of this razor was inspired by the iconic SR-71 "Blackbird" aircraft. This is a visually striking 3 piece razor machined from solid 303 stainless steel to astonishingly tight tolerances, designed to deliver exceptionally close and consistent shaves.
The Blackbird is robustly built and will last many lifetimes with basic care. While stainless steel is resistant to corrosion, it is not immune. Tea staining or surface corrosion can occur when wet blades are stored in the razor. We recommend loosening the handle of your Blackbird in between shaves to allow the blade and razor to fully dry, preventing corrosion.
Clean your razor occasionally with a mild soap and soft cloth. We do not recommend scrubbing the razor with a coarse towel or bristled brush as it may damage the polished and black oxide finishes.
Handle Length: 85mm
Blade Gap: 7mm (Medium Aggressive)
Material: Stainless Steel
Made in the USA
"I believe that when a Man shaves, that time is his own, it's his quiet time, a time to contemplate life, the past, the present and the future, it's also a time to think about his next visit to the pub and what the weekend's football results will be. After all we are men, we are not complicated and are easily pleased."

We focus on artisan shaving soaps, made with luxurious essential oils like aloe vera, argan oil, tea tree, peppermint, and lanolin - ideal for all skin types (and even sensitive skin). If you use it with a high quality shaving brush and shaving bowl, you can form a rich creamy lather to give you a smooth shave and keep your face feeling fresh. These are perfect for daily use, giving excellent lubrication whilst using a safety razor. A good quality shaving soap cannot be beaten, better than any shave gel/shaving foam.Shop Shaving Soap
Traditional shaving soap can be semi hard sometimes referred to as a croap (cream soap) which is inbetween a shaving cream and solid shaving soap. (soap puck/shave soap), Compared with shaving cream which is much softer, you have to work a little harder with a brush to create a rich lather . To use it, simply soak your traditional shaving brush in warm water, not hot as this may soften the glue in the knot of the brush and loosen the bristles. Bloom the surface of the soap with the brush, then transfer to a bowl, hand or your face to work the lather (adding more water gradually as needed). You do this by simply touching the tips of the brush into the water .
Natural soap is best to reduce skin irritation, and give yourself a smooth shave. Natural ingredients are free of parabens, and it'll give you a better razor glide and post shave feel than using canned cream or gel.
