Following the Limited edition Porter of Japan Washbag, we’re back with Baxter of California and this time we’re looking at a collaboration of a different kind; a collaboration with shaving heritage. The safety razor was first introduced in the late 18th century as an alternative (and “safer”) to a cut throat blade. With the modern variant of the safety razor and the likes of German steel expert Merkur of Solingen, Parker, Edwin Jagger and the Chinese Safety Razor specialists Weishi at the forefront, we are seeing the start of a Safety Razor ‘renaissance’.

The Baxter of California Double Edged razor comes gift boxed and with instructions which, trust me, if you have never used a double edged razor before, you’re going to need them.
