The Christopher Bradley razor is a classic double edge safety razor that will provide a smooth shave and years of service. All aspects of manufacture are meticulously controlled to provide consistent performance and clean aesthetics.
Most notably, the handle is decorated with a pattern that is inspired by the centuries-old guilloche technique commonly used in watch making. The pattern is cut into the body of the handle, instead of formed, which ensures that all of the edges of the pattern are smooth and clean, while still providing plenty of friction for wet fingers.
The razor is available with any one of 5 different solid bar guards, each with increasing aggressiveness, to tailor your shave to your face and style. The levels range from AA (the least aggressive) to F (the most aggressive). Optional guards, sold separately.
The blade gap of each guard are as follows:
AA - 0.47 mm
A - 0.60 mm
B - 0.73 mm
C - 0.85 mm
D - 0.98 mm
E - 1.10 mm
F - 1.23 mm
The entire razor is constructed from solid brass and is bead blasted for a subtle matte finish. As is the case with all uncoated brass items, a patina will form over time and the surfaces will darken.
The razor is complete and only requires a blade to be ready to use.
The handle is available in 3", 3.5", and 4" lengths to suit your style. All handles employ a #10-32 thread.
Badger hair is widely regarded as a premium and luxurious bristle media for shaving. Its backbone is stiff, yet resilient, which allows it whip any shaving soap into fine lather with little effort. The bristles also provide an exfoliating effect on the skin.
The handles are constructed from laminated maple, sourced from a local skateboard manufacturer. After turning, they are hand sanded and coated with polyurethane to ensure the wood is sealed.
The end of the handle is flat and the brush will stand on its own. Each handle is branded with a logo before the coating is applied.
Three handle patterns are:
Canadian Maple - A tribute to this great land of ours!
Old School - inspired by the triple stripe skatebroad decks of decades ago
Pink - contrast rustic appearance of uncolored maple
