There is a lot of myth surrounding the straight razor, but for centuries the straight razor was used by men, every day, to get rid of their stubble. True, it does take a little practice to use a straight razor safely and effectively but the results are just as good, if not better, than other methods. With a straight razor you get to start each shave with what is effectively a new blade, without the ongoing cost or environmental impact of disposable blades.
The business has been in operation since 2006, and we now operate from our base in Dorset, UK. We don't just deliver to the UK, but ship every week to the USA, EU and indeed to a worldwide community of straight razor enthusiasts. We remain a small concern dedicated to providing our customers a personal service and as much support as we can.
And why the name “The Invisible Edge”? Well, that comes from Shakespeare's 'Loves Labours Lost', Act 5, Scene 2, where Boyet says-
"The tongues of mocking wenches are as keen/As is the razor's edge invisible/Cutting a smaller hair than may be seen"
