Product Description:

The Sixty8 Provisional “Working Man Safety Razor” is the first in a long line of collaboration products. It combines the talents of four Chicago based firms. Handmade. Local.

The razor handle was designed to solve a few problems in wet shaving. Small, lightweight handles that don’t have enough space for all your fingers and thumb make getting the initial shave angle difficult. Raising the head by 5/8”, The Working Man Safety Razor gives you visibility of the edge during the shave. The weight of the razor is twice or more the weight of other razors, which helps the razor do all the work while shaving. The added weight also helps prevent the user from “pushing” the razor against the face to achieve a close shave, which can lead to nicks and cuts. The razor accepts your favorite double sided safety razor blade. The razor handle is hand-machined on a lathe from 316 stainless steel. Working with TDF Machine of Chicago, Sixty8 developed solutions to problems both the founders and barber shop customers experienced, and put forth the best possible double-sided safety razor available. Sixty8 then combined the handle design with a simple, yet effective Merkur Razor head finished in chrome for striking contrast.

The handmade box is a piece of art in its own right. Working with The Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago to source reclaimed old growth wood from “deconstruction” projects citywide, Sixty8 created a practical and reusable box. Rough sawn edges on all sides tell this unique history. Each box is handmade, and no one box is the same as the other. Made in the workshops of The Rebuilding Exchange to complete the local story.

The handmade insert inside the box was created by the designers at Rohnner Letterpress in Chicago to be both functional and practical. The insert was engineered to keep the razor safe during shipping and to make a great impression on opening the box. It's also made to be quickly and easily removed so the box itself can be reused and repurposed.

Each razor comes with a pack of 10 double sided Feather brand razor blades.

Very Disappointed The box was the best part of this purchase I concede that the handle is nicely machined and does look great The problem is as soon as my fingers get wet because it is so smooth the handle does become very slippery Not a great combination when one is shaving However my biggest issue with this razor is the head It could have come off of any cheap DE razor No kidding it looks identical to my Merkur Chrome LongHandled Razor head For the price I was expecting the head the be of the same quality as the handle It was not to be The final nail in this coffin is aesthetically the matte finish of the handle and the super shiny chrome of the head clash like Obama and Boehner Very disappointed
