A Bit Of History – The Straight Razor
The straight razor is something that has evolved gradually since the 1600’s to become what we use in barbershops today. Various improvements to the quality of the steel used to forge razors to assure the cleanest cut possible. Between the 1500’s to 1600’s blades resembled small hatchets without handles and as they evolved into the 1800’s we started seeing engraved designs and wooden, horn and bone handles, with more sought after pieces craved from tortoise shell and ivory. Moving into the 1900’s the razor became much smaller and easier to handle and carry which is reflective in the straight razors of today.
