Description: Stuart Kerr is a knifemaker and razor maker from Queensland, Australia. When he wanted a straight razor made and couldn’t find one for an affordable price, he decided to make one. Over the years, he became the go-to guy for straight razors in Australia. Though he makes beautiful, clean, classic looking razors, he is possibly best known for his carved, whimsical ones. Stuart is not afraid to push the boundaries of what is possible and has many ‘one-off’ custom designs. He continues to want his work to stand out and perform, always looking for new and different material for his handles and expanding his range of steels he works with.
This exquisite straight razor was custom built by Stuart. The carbon steel blade is CuMai. A premium aogami super carbon steel core is surrounded by a layer of copper, followed by mild steel. The smaller crystalline size of aogami super results in superior edge holding when compared to nearly any other steel. Many knifemakers and users feel that aogami super is among the best carbon steels used today. The resulting blade is both dramatic and exceptionally high performing. Because this razor is forged from carbon steel, we recommend camellia oil to protect it from oxidation. The straight edge culminates in a French point. The half hollow blade is 7/8. Knurling along the spine provides a secure finger purchase.
The dramatic handle is hex resin, set on carbon fiber for strength and durability. An acrylic spacer brings in bright tones.
Exceptional work throughout! Though this razor could be at home in most any collection, it will be a joy to use.
