Naked Armor’s founder D'rock grew up with a gun in his hands and his father taught him how to recognize a well put together rifle. D'rock's father made him assemble and disassemble those rifles blindfolded over and over until he knew every part.
He learned early about steel, precision, workmanship, quality—a well crafted tool is the result of exceptional materials and workmanship. Poor craftsmanship leads to bent barrels and jammed bolt actions. Years later when D'rock was looking for more challenge, he picked up the bow and arrow and learned the importance of a sharp edge.
Taking the principles from those days along with his father's advice, he searched out the best steel and materials available to handcraft Naked Armor’s razors. Japanese steel is the best steel in the world and he decided from day one that all of Naked Armor’s straight razors were to be made with the strongest samurai steel. If you don't start with the best steel, you won't end with an amazing straight razor. As far back as the seventh century, Japanese warriors wore a form of lamellar armor, this armor eventually evolved into the armor worn by the samurai—the greatest warrior of the steel age.
Good enough for the Samurai, perfect for the Naked Armor straight razor.
Like a dull arrow, a dull straight razor is useless. Naked Armor was born in those moments when he was searching for a quality razor and the only thing he could find in the market was a German owned brand. Dad taught D'rock to always respect animals, especially the endangered ones. After decades of hunting and fishing with his Pops, he learned how important it was to honor the animals that face extinction.
Going against the industry standard, he decided that he would not include any badger brushes in Naked Armor's lineup and years later he is sticking to his values.

TLDR: The razor is great, and they'll make it right if it isn't up to par.
When I received my first blade from the store, I was a bit let down by the condition; a bit of corrosion and some sticky residue. I sent an email asking to trade it in and they got back to me within hours. Not only did they make it right, when I accidentally had it shipped to my old address, they quickly shipped it again without hassle.
I will be shopping here more.
Used to have to spend 20$ on razors every month. Smoothest shave I’ve ever had and I’ll never have to deal with crappy razors. 10/10 recommend for ladies
After having this straight razor for a few days once I received it, the blade didn’t seem as sharp as it could be. Without any hassle, Naked Armor took care of the situation and went above and beyond what I was expecting. Now that the razor is sharp, I can enjoy nice, close shaves. I greatly appreciate the communication behind their product and their willingness to make sure the customer has a great experience. With a great straight razor and a great company making a great product in the end, I rate this razor 15/10. The craftsmanship is well worth the $100ish dollars you will spend.
Hi guys iv just taken my first shave with the new Elyan 7/8 straight razor from Naked Armor. This modern looking straight razor is fantastic. I love the hexagonal design of the handle which kind of felt non slip to my fingers giving even greater control. The business end of this crafted tool is indeed razor sharp upon arrival which as can be seen in the video link below was put the test and did its job admirably.
Overall this felt really comfortable in the hand and shaved with the accustomed smoothness and sharpness that one would expect from Naked Armor. If your looking for a modern take on classic then this is for you!!
