"In short, if you're sporting stubble right now, it's time to reacquaint yourself with a razor - and there are few finer than those from new British grooming start-up Thomas Clipper."
"What you want is a proper, honest, no-nonsense razor."
A focus on craftsmanship and design.
Handles turned individually in our workshop from a single piece of solid stainless steel, giving unmatched balance.
Global shipping is available on all reward levels (mostly free, see individual rewards for details).Thomas Clipper gives you the best shave you can get outside a barber shop.
Building the best shave
We use single blade razors: so does your barber. Our razor shaves closer and with more precision - one blade, rather than several, means fewer ingrown hairs and less razor burn. And because we use stainless steel for the handle and lighter chromed nickel for the head we've created a shave that's balanced naturally. It's also several times heavier than a plastic razor - that means more stability, more longevity and a better shave.
Our razors come with blades for a year if you're in the UK ** now 13 months for Kickstarter customers because we reached our funding goal a week early - see 'updates' for details**. Please select International (shipping extra) if you'd like to take advantage of this part of the service outside of the UK.
Each handle is made to order in our workshop in the UK - yours can be customised to your glove size and etched with your initials (choose the Mark One Custom pledge level). The head is made by our Commonwealth partner in New Dehli. Our oil and cotton are produced in the UK and certified organic. Our engraving is done in a workshop near Leicester. You're supporting skilled craftspeople at every stage of production.
Get it first
Our Naked reward level is a way to get on board with the TC movement. Our Travel Kit includes everything you need to get shaving. And with the Custom reward level, The Mark One will be customised to your glove size and etched with your initials.
For Kickstarter, Zena our designer has created the Model K. This takes us a great deal longer to turn in our workshop, so we're limiting supply to Kickstarter backers only at this stage.
As you'll also see, for early backers we've put together a limited number of specially priced packages. Get them while they're hot...

Making Better Things
We've created something that is built to last: no battery to run out, no plastic to snap. The handle is stainless steel which is over 60% recycled (we'll find out and share an exact number when we start ordering the steel and building the razors: the more we're buying the more clout we'll have to demand a higher % of recycled steel).
Our accessories are all organic (organic oil, organic cotton). And the workshops we are developing the product with all recycle their waste metal. That's part of the reason we work with them.
Matt and Tony are good friends who share a passion for making something better: something that supports passionate and talented people, something that they would be proud to own and something that is built to last. Together they're dedicated to bringing you the best shave you can get outside of a barber shop.
Better shaving through simple design
The day of the seven-blade aloe-vera vibrating throwaway razor is over. Barbers use single blade razors because they shave better - we're building the best single blade shave you can get outside a barber shop.
Risks and challenges
**SHIPPING PRE-CHRISTMAS FOR UK ORDERS ONLY**
We'll do our best to get the razors made asap, but because they're workshop produced we can't guarantee pre-Christmas shipping for international orders. If your order is a Christmas present, please let us know by pledging 10p more (i.e. £79.10 instead of £79) and we'll do our absolute best. For all UK orders we expect to have something in the mail before Christmas - if anything at all gets in the way, we'll let you know well in advance.
