The Blackland Sabre is a modern 3 piece single edge razor that uses sing;e edge type GEM or Supply Razor Co single edge blades which is designed, machined and finished in the USA.
Blackland when designing the Sabre were committed to making a maneuverable and balanced head. Rather than use a spring-loaded top cap to hold the blade in place as older GEM razors did, they decided to use a modified threaded post to hold the blade as tightly as possible. This makes the Sabre a true three-piece safety razor that requires no extra parts to function properly. Due to the length of the GEM blade, positioning the post behind the blade creates an unacceptably unwieldy and front-heavy razor. By modifying a standard post they were able to make the Sabre head as small and maneuverable as possible while maintaining perfect balance. The result is a wonderfully smooth razor which is a joy to use
The Sabre could not be easier to assemble. Simply slide the base plate onto the top cap and carefully line up the handle before threading on. That's it. No mechanisms to wear out and no extra parts to drop down the sink.
The narrow threaded post of the Sabre requires additional care when assembling. Align the post with the handle and thread the handle on slowly at first to ensure proper thread alignment. If resistance is met, back the handle off before attempting once more. Forcing a misaligned handle may damage the top cap and/or handle. Once the handle has begun to successfully thread onto the top cap, screw the handle on as normal.
The Sabre 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 Sabre in between shaves to allow the blade and razor to fully dry, preventing corrosion. The Sabre ships with stainless steel GEM blades which resist corrosion. Take additional care when using carbon steel GEM blades as they corrode easily.
Clean your razor occasionally with a mild soap and soft cloth. We do not recommend scrubbing the polished razor with a coarse towel or bristled brush as it may damage the finish.
