Welcome to the new website of The Invisible Edge. We specialise in straight razors (or cut throat razors if you prefer) stocking a wide range of high quality straight razors from European and Japanese manufacturers. We also stock all the straight razor accessories you might require including shaving brushes, strops (including our own top-quality custom strops), hones, starter kits and more, supplemented by a select range of men’s skincare and grooming products. We also provide a razor sharpening and re-pinning service to help keep our customers’ razors in use.
All of our razors are supplied “shave ready”. Our Policy page describes what we mean by this.
The site brings together all the products, information and advice previously located at www.theinvisibleedge.co.uk, www.thiers-issard.co.uk and www.dovorazors.com Hopefully you will find the new site much easier to navigate. It also has benefits such as the ability to log in and maintain your own account with purchase history etc.

While there is a lot of myth surrounding the straight razor, 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"
