Gallery: Cutting Edge Options for Sustainable Shaving

Artisan Alex Jacques came up with a perfect solution to that quandary by creating a line of straight razors that are intended to last a lifetime. Made of the highest quality tool steel and sustainable space-age laminates, each of his one-of-a-kind razors is a veritable piece of functional art, crafted by hand and honed to... well, razor-sharpness. They’re shipped as ready-to-use, and paired with the shaving product of your choice, will provide the closest, cleanest shave imaginable; one that will last far longer than that of a standard safety razor, sans the bumps and ingrown hairs. These perfect shaves aren't just for guys either—ladies who have used straight razors rarely go back to conventional blades. The smoothness one gets from these is really quite spectacular, and it lasts for days.
