Community Update | New Product Launch and Development, Whiskeytown USA, and Company Growth

Last month we finalized the design of our new Artisan Straight Razors line:

They feature a unique profile and are available in 7/8 or 8/8 widths. The stock thickness will be 1/4" and 9/32" respectively, and will be honed with one piece of tape in the shop to set the proper bevel angle. Additionally, we have finalized the design for a 'shorty' straight razor to our Classic line: "The Sprite." New products will be on the website for purchase later this month.

While our main gig is straight razors and strops,

we are setting our sights towards bringing you a full line of wet shaving accessories. We are currently collaborating with other local artisans to develop a line of handcrafted shaving brushes and bowls for our die-hard wet shaving fans, and keep your eyes peeled for a shave soaps in the future as well!

May 8th & 9th,

we will be hosting a vendor's booth at Whiskeytown USA in Portland, OR. We will have some shaving accessories available for purchase and will be taking orders for straight razors. Last year's Whiskeytown featured 208 whiskeys, dozens of vendors, and had over 9,000 visitors! You can enjoy two days of tastings and performances while shopping with local vendors including our friends Oaks Bottom Forge and Bowyer & Fletcherand tickets are only $28 for a single day pass with 3 tasting tokens, or $45 for both days and 6 tasting tokens! 

The demand for our products has been staggering!

It's heart-warming to know that so many people are interested in our craft and want to support a local small business. Our backorder has held steady at 10 weeks, and we are constantly increasing efficiency to get great products out the door in a timely manner. As part of our strategy to maximize our potential and grow as a company, we are currently accepting applications for serious candidates interested in becoming blade smiths at Portland Razor Co.
