Sure, they can be a bit intimidating — but there's no better shave than the one you get from a straight razor properly wielded. And the Bison x Max Sprecher Straight Razor is a near-perfect specimen, made to last for generations to come. Featuring a hefty full-size blade forged from carbon steel, it's made to hold a cutting age that will last and last. The handle (also known as the scales) is made from carbon fiber that will never lose its shape, all while maintaining a light weight for excellent balance. Store it in the included leather sleeve which, like the rest of the razor, is handmade right here in the USA.
