Above the Tie is proud to offer the X1 Single Edge Slant Safety Razor, hand crafted from solid 303 stainless steel here in the USA.
The X1 is a mid aggressive, slant & single edge, solid bar razor. The blade gap is 0.55 mm. The blade exposure is 1.5 mm. The weight of the head is 46 g / 1.6 oz.
The X1 uses Artist Club blades, which are thicker than DE blades. This thickness prevents vibration in the blade, for a smoother feeling shave. The thicker blade is also better for denser areas of hair, such as the chin.
The Slant design holds the blade at an angle. This creates a slicing motion on the hair. Slants typically feel smoother, yet more efficient, than the blade gap indicates. Slants can cause irritation to sensitive skin.
