Sold out. The waitlist has been discontinued. We plan to offer the BBS-1 again in early 2018. Further details will be provided as we know them.
I am proud to offer The Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company's first proprietary stainless steel safety razor, the BBS-1.
This razor has been fabricated by a single machinist in Canada out of stainless steel. (Note: for those of you vintage car/bike buffs that like checking for steel vs. bondo with a magnet, these stainless steels are austenitic, which means they are not particularly magnetic.) We have tightened the tolerances and increased the handle grip in the razor design, so these razors are even better.
This razor has been designed for the individual who wants a solid (110+ grams) and durable piece of craftsmanship that will provide an extremely efficient shave.
The unique design of the head allows the blade to cut efficiently, yet safely, which is the raison d'etre of the safety razor.
The increased blade gap provides a more efficient shave, with a greater sense of audio feedback, but the unique design of this razor, and the fairly neutral blade exposure, ensures that the increased efficiency does not come with unduly increased harshness.
I have been using this razor personally for a little while now, and frankly, I am thrilled to be able to offer this to the public. If you're looking for a razor that can provide an efficient BBS shave, that's machined out of stainless steel for decades of shaving enjoyment, this is an excellent choice.
(NOTE: If you're looking for a more mild stainless razor, the Feather would probably be a better bet. Also note that while these razors are machined and then polished, there may be traces of machining or tool marks in the finished product.)
As with all of my products, I guarantee satisfaction. If you're not 100% thrilled with this razor, just ship it back, and I'll refund your money. The soap and blades are yours to keep. (Please ship any returns insured / signature required, as it's a drag to have them go missing.)
