Was: $223.05
Now: $200.74 Save 10%

This Ralf Aust razor has a 6/8 satin finished blade with a round point and lovely African blackwood scales. It has the usual "Ralf Aust Solingen" mark on the tang and the "Solingen Handarbeit" - handmade in Solingen - mark on the blade. What makes this razor stand out are the scales which are made of African Blackwood. Not only does this wood look superb, varying in colour from dark red to almost black, it is robust and has water repellent properties which means that the scales will retain their appeal. All Ralf Aust razors have a full hollow ground blade.

This razor has a slight mark on the reverse of the blade and so is being sold as a second. See below for details.

It has the usual "Ralf Aust Solingen" mark on the tang and the "Solingen Handarbeit" - handmade in Solingen - mark on the blade. What makes this razor stand out are the scales which are made of African Blackwood. Not only does this wood look superb, varying in colour from dark red to almost black, it is robust and has water repellent properties which means that the scales will retain their appeal. Colouring is a like a cross between cocobolo and ebony. The razor has jimping to both the lower and upper tang. All Ralf Aust razors have a full hollow ground blade.

This razor is being sold as a second. The photographs are of the particular razor that is for sale. The razor is missing part of the satin finish on the reverse side of the blade near the shoulder as shown in the images. The mark is approx. 5mm long and approx. 1mm high. It is purely a cosmetic defect that does not detract from what is still a stunning razor but nevertheless we can't sell it as perfect - hence the discount.

The items shown with the razor are for illustrative purposes only and not included. The brush is a Thiers Issard Super Badger with a Blonde Horn handle - A30066. The shave cream is Alexander Simpson's Bay Rum Ultra Glide Shave Cream - A260007. The strop is one of our own Standard strops - IE100009.

SHAVE READY - Unlike some retailers, our razors are not supplied as they come from the factory. We individually prepare all the razors we sell. For full details see our policy.
