Taking the traditional shaving ritual into the 21st century with a modern straight razor.
Inspired by the classic straight razor, London-based studio Morrama recently launched a modernized version of the popular shaving tool. Minimal and perfectly balanced, the Angle Razor aims to provide a 21st century take on the traditional design while also celebrating the ritual of shaving. Technically a shavette, this modern straight razor uses widely available disposable razor blades which cost under $0.14 each. And since Angle has one edge, the user can snap each blade in half.
Made from the highest grade machined anodized aluminum, Angle will last a lifetime. The balanced razor provides incredible precision thanks to the carefully weighted handle that creates a pivot point at the thumb and forefinger. Which means that the user will have complete control, even in tricky areas. Ideal for anything from wet shaving to trimming and shaping hair, the razor has tapered paddles to create the perfect angle between the blade and the skin. Twisting the handle opens the paddle, making changing the disposable blades or cleaning the razor as easy as possible.
More than a practical tool, Angle brings back the art of traditional shaving in a more stylish and convenient design. Available now on Kickstarter, the straight razor comes in silver or black. Both versions arrive in a beautiful presentation box, along with a cleaning cloth and a double edged blade. Apart from Angle itself, Morrama also offers a separate stand and a mug. The campaign ends on April 8, 2018. Photographs© Morrama.
