Light and strong, this straight razor is a must-have.
✅ The Merlin Straight Razor is also available as a single blade + leather case.
Great Shave At Home Every Day
💈 Straight razors offer the cleanest and closest shave you can ever have. You no longer need to travel to the local barber to get a great shave; you can wet shave in the comfort of your own home.
The main feature of this kit is its razor. The Merlin Straight Razor blade is made from high-quality ACRO Japanese stainless steel with an HRC of 61-62. You can buy a cheaper razor, but it won’t be made with quality steel and hardwood.
The Merlin Straight Razor isn’t just designed to give you a great shave. It’s meant to stand the test like Merlin himself. Here are some blade basics we learned from the real masters of shaving after working with them to create our awesome razor:
- start with great steel
- hone to perfection
- use hardwood in handle
We crafted this blade with the best steel available in the world and with the highest hardness rating found in any straight razor to create the best face-to-shave ratio.
We started by importing Japanese stainless steel sheets with a hardness rating of 61-62 HRC. You can read about why that's important by hitting this link.
Our Merlin Straight Razor was designed to be sharp and stay sharp with proper razor maintenance.
You Save $1000 Straight Razor Shaving
💰 You get the perfect mixture of strength and precision with the Merlin Straight Razor and $1000 in your pocket after four years of shaving. Having a smooth manly face comes at a cost, but you can save money by switching to this straight razor—no more running to the store to grab a cheap plastic spoon to shave with.
The statistics show that in 4 years, you'll save $1000 by switching to a straight razor. Not to mention that plastic razors contribute to a disposable, throwaway society. Two billion plastic razors are thrown away each year, thus using a straight razor reduces your impact on the environment by lowering what ends up in the trash.
Everything You Need in One Wood Box
This straight razor shave kit includes everything you need to shave with a straight razor at home & on the road. Let's review what you get in the Merlin Straight Razor Kit:
- Japanese Stainless Steel Blade
- Leather Travel Case
- Leather Strop
- Badger-Friendly Shaving Brush
- Tin of Shaving Soap
- Tin of Sharpening Paste
- Handcrafted Wooden Box
We wanted to make things easy for you, so we placed everything you need in this kit, but there are a few other things that you might want to consider getting to improve your shave routine further.
Straight Razor Stand & Hot Foam Scuttle
✅ STAND: Our zinc alloy razor stand racks your straight razor and brush in the air, enabling airflow to gently dry and remove the moisture from your blade and brush. Additionally, the stand keeps your razor off the bathroom sink counter and will make your wife happy. You need to store your new straight razor in a dry location between shaves.
✅ SCUTTLE: If you haven’t used a hot lather scuttle before, then you are in for a real treat. Preparing the scuttle takes a few minutes, and the result is a hot leather shave, just like at the barbershop. Add hot water, use a brush to whisk the shave puck, and watch the magic later appear like a beautiful genie. When used with a thick layer of wet shaving foam, the Merlin Straight Razor will move smoothly across your face for the closest shave possible.
Available in two styles: Ceramic Scuttle or Stainless Steel Scuttle.
Straight razor care and maintenance will ensure that your razor lasts for generations, and by adding the stand and scuttle to your order, you are creating the ultimate wet shave experience.
- Buy Kit + Shave Scuttle + Stand
- Strop the blade a few times the night before you shave;
- Add hot shaving foam to your face;
- Shave like a boss—look and feel great.
