What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Introducing: Men's Yew and Chrome Safety Razor.

Hand crafted in Cheshire, England.
Hand crafted in Cheshire, England.

What is a safety razor?

The safety razor is a shaving tool for Men. Unlike plastic cartridge razors, this razor uses a single double-edge replaceable blade as opposed to multi-blade cartridges. The same blade used by your barber: the single blade is sharper and offers a closer cut with less irritation.

What are the benefits?

  • A better shave

The single blade offers a closer cut for a fraction of the price. The result is less irritation and smoother skin. Begin your day with something you really enjoy with a shaving tool that you're proud to own.

  • Expert craftsmanship

Unlike mass produced razors, we're supporting skilled craft. Each wooden handle is handmade, one by one with extreme attention to detail. The result is a work of art, in a class of its own.

  • Environmentally Friendly

Billions of plastic razors and cartridges hit land and sea fill each year. Double edge blades are made of steel and can be recycled. 

  • Economical

Double edge blades cost on average 20p, compared to £2.00 for a cartridge. That's 10 times cheaper than what you spend now! To get you started, we'll throw in your first blade for free (see rewards).

 

Wood Selection

Why Yew?

An elegant British wood with striking characteristics.
An elegant British wood with striking characteristics.

Your shaving razor will be made using a 200 year old Yew Tree from Cheshire, England. The tree came down naturally in a storm, so no trees were harmed in the making of your razor.

We chose Yew for its strikingly distinctive characteristics. Each cut is carefully selected by our woodworker so that every razor has its own unique features that are then finished spectacularly.

Our commitment

For every razor your buy, we plant one new tree.
For every razor your buy, we plant one new tree.

For every Razor that you buy, we'll plant a tree. That's because we're passionate about the environment and the materials we use, so we're committed to giving back by lowering our carbon footprint.

Supporting craftsmanship

We spent months working with designers and woodworkers in the UK and we're confident we've built the best razor on the market. We're passionate about supporting skilled jobs.

Each razor is hand crafted one at a time to deliver outstanding results with intricate detail. This razor is built to last. You simply won't find anything made like this elsewhere.

British values

We love working with local businesses. From our Woodturner in Cheshire to designers in London, leaflet manufacturers in Rotherham to digital printers in Manchester. Every one of our razors has a personal touch.

Risks and challenges

We keep in touch with our suppliers every day and we're confident we can stick to our timeline.

However, our products are man made and as such delays are possible. In the unlikely event that there are delays, we'll keep you posted.

In the event that orders exceed expectations, we may use Yew wood from a secondary source where applicable. Don't worry, this will still be British wood and sourced responsibly.
