Description: This razor is a collaborative piece by Adrian and Stefan van Deventer. Stefan and Adrian are the sons of renowned knifemaker JD van Deventer. This last year, they have been studying knifemaking under their father, and their collaborative efforts have been truly spectacular. They are excelling at making some of the best straight razors I have ever encountered.
The 6/8th inch thin, precision ground blade is formed from Yushoku san mai. V-Toku2 carbon steel is surrounded by alternating layers of stainless steel, brass and copper. This provides an ultra-high performing edge with rust resistance along the spine and upper third of the razor. The steel was brought to 62-63 Hrc for a particularly long lasting edge. The hollow ground blade features Adrian and Stefan's collaborative mark engraved on the left side: "S A Brothers".
Handle scales were made from Shokwood. Shokwood combines resin with natural wood to create a tremendously durable and beautiful handle material.
This is an absolutely spectacular custom straight razor.
