    The Barbier's Bride or Barber's Bride pays homage to the importance a skilled professional places in a high quality tool. Historically a barber might find a straight razor in his hands more often than any other tool and over time through daily use he would develop a fondness for one over any other, a marriage of sorts. This razor is aptly named. It has been regarded by some as the best straight razor ever made, certainly one of the best in production today. You will find when you first hold this razor that it is exceptionally well balanced and feels like it belongs in your hand. On closer inspection you will notice the intricate etching on the blade and the unique spine shape. However the true test is the way it shaves and that is smooth and to the point. The blade has been hand crafted from the finest Solingen silver steel and has excellent edge retention and takes stropping and honing with supernal grace. The scales are made from genuine horn the material of choice for an optimum balance between aesthetics, form and function. Once you've used this razor you will get a sense for what it is to have a favorite tool and how nice it truly is to use something that is designed to be the best.Hand Made By Herr Wakcer in Solingen,Germany
