These days there are no straight razor manufacturers left in Sheffield. Indeed I do not know of a single open razor manufacturer left in the UK who makes the complete razor. Of course you may be able to buy open razors on various sites which by the terminology on the blade and the advertising description appear to be made in the UK but I am unaware of where they are manufactured

All our straight razors on this page come boxed and in a drawstring bag and the price includes UK postage. Most are from Sheffield but some are from Germany. The drawstring bags and the boxes are not original to the items.

Because our straight razors are one off’s they are not linked to the shopping cart. Just send us an email to and we will send you a paypal invoice.

IIf  you are planning to shave with them whilst we have been selective in our choice of straight razors they are used items and may need honing. They have no other issues other than slight tarnishing and the edges have no chips or other problems.
