A properly maintained straight razor will last generations, so of course we understand when you are looking for something extra special. For this reason, we happily offer customization services.
Make a statement and keep your blade safe with some flashy scales. Acrylics, hardwoods, stabilized woods, stainless steel, horn, shell, most anything you can imagine can be turned into a show-stopping set of straight razor scales.

Finishing and Bluing
Finish a blade to increase corrosion resistance with a blued or acid-etched finish. Boost show piece factor with a high polish or mirrored finish.
