Each Cx model has been carefully and individually machined and finished right here in Minneapolis using superior materials. We use a premium, marine grade 316L stainless steel, Titanium, custom forged stainless Damascus steel, and copper/brass mokume-gane. Our metals are either USA, German or UK sourced. The perfect shave comes from not only the design and material of the safety razor but the hand work, warmth and soul that went into making each piece. Each of our safety razors is truly worthy of being called an heirloom.
