Bullgoose shaving commissioned a product engineer in July of 2013 to design a single edge razor that takes the Feather Professional and Kai Titan Mild blades. We were looking to create a razor that has a slim head profile and that locks down the blade tightly to eliminate blade chatter and to provide a smooth consistent shave.
I presented the drawings to a number of machine shops but the design was such that it was very difficult to machine and it required a very specific kind of machine shop. Rather than compromise the design, I kept looking. In January, I hit pay dirt and found a machine shop that had the specialized equipment needed to produce the razor and perhaps more importantly, I found a machine shop that was intrigued by the project.
The Razor is being dubbed the Rx razor because it will give the wet shaving community a shot in the arm and, it will be a prescription for a superior shave.
The Rx razor will be fully machined from 303 Stainless Steel and we hope to receive shipment sometime in the summer of 2016.
