Cut throat razors, also referred to as straight razors, have been around for many years and are generally recommended for those who have experience in the art of wet shaving.
Cut throat razors are still very popular male grooming products today, especially with ‘real men’ like Tom Trueman who are looking for a closer shave.
If you are looking for something that will give you the closest shave, then listen to those who use them, who still argue that this is the only way to shave!
Straight razors, which have a blade that can fold into its handle, must be used with great caution as they are extremely sharp razors, but without the protection of a safety razor.
Dan, customer services manager at the Shaving Shack, said: “At one time, these razors were the main way that most ‘real men’ used to shave. However, they require a considerable amount of skill to use, so be careful. This skill can be honed through practice, but as long as you take care during shaving the results can be amazing.”
