Your Guide to Buying the Best Straight Razors

Posted by Hafiz Mirza on

Style isn't just about what you wear; it's about how you live.” – Lilly Pulitzer


Your personal style is a reflection of who you are as a person. It’s a reflection of your personality, choices, and all that you are as a being.

We all have our own way of doing things and we all have our personal preferences. Whether it’s wearing a cap whenever we go out, or wearing solid colors, we’re known amongst our social circle for having a unique sense of style; something no one else has.

But men like to experiment when it comes to their personal style. Whether it’s experimenting with the type of clothes they wear or the shape of their beards, a change in appearance is sometimes a good thing.

If you’re planning to change the style of your beard, you’ll need a good razor. The art of shaving requires an incredibly powerful razor that can help you complete a shave with precision.  

Buying the Right Razor

The phrase, “You get what you pay for” has never been truer when it comes to buying a straight razor. If you opt for something cost-effective, you will get a razor made using low quality materials. It’s important to remember that when you’re buying an essential, never compromise on quality.

Here are a few more things to consider when purchasing a straight razor:

- Read Reviews Online

Before you purchase a product, make sure to search for its reviews online. Of course, every individual is different and what works for them might not work for you. However, it’s important to look into customer reviews. This will give you a general idea of how well that product is doing in the market.

- Read the Product Description Carefully

When ordering straight razors, make sure you read the product description carefully. This is because there are several imitations of straight razors available. These are known as ‘shavettes’ and they’re in the cost-effective range.

Unfortunately, they’re dull, don’t let you hone your beard properly, and aren’t built well.

- Custom Razors

Custom straight razors are also an option. They come in both fixed and folding style. One good thing about them is that they are handmade, with the metal being forged by a ‘razor smith’.  

The only downside is that they are a little expensive, but if you have a razor that will last a lifetime, it’s a small price to pay.
