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.

Thanks Dad for your service to this country and for all the lessons growing up about nature and the value of quality. To all the other Fathers out there, let's strive to give our children the best aspects of what we were taught.
A year after D'rock started Naked Armor he got a phone call one afternoon that announced the death of his dear uncle Curt. Shocked to hear about his death, D'rock pledged to help less fortunate Americans.
Ok, so I started out with a Naked Armor “Shavette” just to see if I was coordinated enough to shave with a straight razor and loved it. Although I nicked myself everytime, the shave quality was amazing. Then I bought this Solomon set, was a little intimidated by the longer blade but OMG what an amazing shave with no nicks! The shave soap that comes with the set lathers so amazingly in my Naked Armor skuttle for a rich hot lather as well. Definitely a learning curve but oh so worth the time and effort it takes. You deserve the pamper!
I won a straight razor stand that I liked so much that I bought the DE stand. I am amazed at how well built they are, AND how well they survive Hong Kong humidity, and even having been accidentally knocked onto the marble floor.
Wife got me a Solomon shave kit. Amazing!!!! My first time with a straight razor. Took me about an hour but couldn’t ask for a better way to make myself sexy for her!! We’ll maybe one other way but I’ll keep it pg.
Great smell and all ingredients are beneficial! Not a ton of alcohol which means it won’t dry your face out. Definitely recommend!
In the beginning I was skeptical, especially after I got the wrong razor when my order arrived. But the excellent customer service from Laura shined as always! I can tell you this, this razor is beautiful! I love the Spanish point and the multi colored scales with acrylic and wood! It does come “shave ready” but I would recommend and finish gone to better the edge. My favorite originally was the Solomon, the moved the the King Arthur, another beautiful razor. But now I’m absolutely in love with the Griflet! Thank you Naked Armor for producing quality and beauty at an affordable cost!
