NOS Jacob Miller B.S.CO Supreme 5/8 Straight Razor
Please note: With any Shaving Antiques there are no returns. Once the razor is honed or used it is no longer New Old Stock. As a small family run business we could not recover the cost. These type of Antiques are more for collectability and will gain value over time. So we ask that you take your time before making such an important decision and look over the pictures carefully. Also note that this does not mean you are left out in the cold with no support! We stand behind our products, which means if you have problems down the road, we will go out of our way to help you if you drop your razor, or lose a pin. But if you plan to shave with such a rare and irreplaceable piece of Art... Well we respect your choice, and would love to hear about it
The 5/8 Extra Full Hollow Ground, Swedish Carbon Steel blade boasted by the Jacob Miller B.S.CO Supreme features a bright satin finish, a square point, and bluing on the tang. The original resin handle showcases a set of brass-plated bolsters, and a brass inlay that runs beautifully across the handle.
Although made nearly a century ago, the blade remains in excellent condition, and falls exactly between the center of the scales. Manufactured at a time when craftsmen took genuine pride in their work, this razor is made with an almost surreal level of care and craftsmanship; something that is evident the very first time you lay eyes on it.
In fact, every part of this razor was made with the utmost care; the craftsmen even personally forming the pin, something you don't often see in modern razors. Truly, it is an absolute spectacle.
Comes with the original box. Like any high-end collectible, we ask that you advise us on whether you would like the original factory edge, or made to be completely "Shave Ready"
If you entrust to us this special privilege, like all other straight razors leaving the Classic Edge, we will take great care to ensure this edge is perfect in every way. As always, a final polishing will be done after honing, to give this razor the remarkable shine it had the day it came out of the factory.
Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $25 Value is our way of showing you that we are willing to take our Customer Service to the next level. After all, nothing is worse than buying a Straight Razor as a gift for a loved one, only for them to open the box and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a free follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.
Please allow a minimum of at least 2-3 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not a product that you buy just anywhere. It needs special attention to detail as it will come in contact with your skin, and must be sanitized and polished before being coated with Renaissance Wax. This careful and considerate attention to each razor is the difference between a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning, and our own Artisan-owned shaving store that is nothing less than extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied. It's our job to ensure that your experience is perfect. We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website, and we hope you have a great day.
Note: When you receive the razor for the first time, carefully take it out of the box and remove the oil with a piece of tissue. The razor has already been stropped and it completely "Shave Ready", so go ahead and shave! You will get 2 shaves before needing to strop (depending on how aggressive your beard growth is. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot tap water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. We recommend to oil your razor after every use. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.
