Introducing the first and only machined 904L stainless steel safety razor...the Cx-904L.
904L is a special, high alloy grade of stainless steel which is extremely corrosive resistant. Similar to 316L, it is an austenitic stainless steel alloy but with a much higher alloy content, it also contains 1-2% copper.
Luxury takes on a new dimension with our 904L machined stainless steel razor. This grade of stainless steel is reserved for the most prestigious industries, such as high-end watchmaking, including Rolex (R), commercial diving and the offshore oil industry. 904L stainless steel is renowned for its unparalleled durability, corrosion resistance, and captivating luster.
As pioneers in the industry, I pride myself on pushing the boundaries of what's possible in shaving technology, this is a material I have always wanted to work with. The introduction of the world's first 904L machined stainless steel razor showcases our commitment to delivering products that redefine the industry and elevate your grooming to new heights.
904L stainless steel safety razor, machined and finished in USA. The Cx-904L includes our "Web" plate design. This design allows us to use the minimal amount of material to achieve the strongest and lightest base plate. The concept of "lightening holes" is a good example of a vintage design principle used to make structures lighter.
This design feature has been used extensively in military, aerospace, marine and auto racing.

*Base Plate Options:
- All base plates have positive blade exposure
-/Mild Base Plate - If you have sensitive skin, prefer less blade feel, have fine hair or just enjoy a mild shave, this is the one. Head shavers have enjoyed this one. This plate has our least blade exposure and a .71mm, our smallest blade gap. If you have sensitive skin, straight hair, curly hair or shave everyday...this is a nice choice.
+ Base Plate - We reduced the blade exposure from the original but increased the gap to .88mm. This is a nice option if you prefer less blade feel, yet still enjoy a higher efficiency in a razor. This plate is also a nice option if you have dense hair or only shave every 2-3 days...if you are unsure what base plate is right for you, this is probably the one. You still have a good amount of user control with the positive blade exposure to adjust the efficiency with technique and blade choice.
++ Base Plate - This one is for those who like a very efficient option. This plate is still with positive blade exposure, but has less exposure than the + Base Plate. This razor has a larger 1.08mm gap. If you have coarse hair, shave every 4-5 days or just like an efficient razor, this would be the one.
