I love everything about the way this razor shaves and feels in my hand. It feels like a work of art. They definitely picked the horn scales with the most character for their pictures though. One side of mine is nearly totally black, the other scale has the cream-colored fade character down about half the side.

This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 800 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness. The ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
African cow horn is a particularly elegant material and is therefore ideally suited for forming the handle of the BERGISCHE LÖWEN. Each handle has an individual grain and distinct colour pattern. The African horn is shaped in an elaborate process to create this stylish handle. Finally, the unique piece is finely polished several times.
During hollow grinding, the straight razor is ground concavely from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. Enjoy the satisfying sound and feel of a gentle shave from the vibration of the razor blade trimming your facial hair.
The round point is the classic shape for a razor and is suitable in most shaving situations. This type of point has been very popular for centuries, as the curved shape can be used very safely in the areas of the ears, nose, and dimples. Even in the event of a fall, the rounded head protects you from injuries.
5/8 inch razors are truel all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colours. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.
