Product Description

Same functioning capabilities as our original design with a Matte Black Coated scale, (“handle”), and “Gun Metal” shank. Razor has a nice smooth surface in a tinted chrome attached to our Matte Black Scale for a sleek look.

This is Irving Barber Company’s first patent pending razor available for retail purchase.  We have spent years developing this multi-disposable blade straight razor.

Irving Barber Company is the first to bring you a razor with voids for bent edges after breaking double edge blades.  No need for rivets with our stainless steel pivoting hardware and molded scale stabilizer.  This I.B.C. razor has a magnetic blade stabilizer for helping blades stay in place while seating.  The weight of our razor has been meticulously shifted for an even, balanced feel, that glides comfortably.  Contoured lines allow for a stable and pleasing grip at all angles.  With this razor you can use a double edge blade for lineups and touch ups.

Additionally, use thicker cartridge blades for a full shave without any extra inserts or adapters.  Every blade type used will have consistent blade exposure, so you can edge corners with precision no matter which blade is loaded. Try our Irving Barber Co razor today!

    I’ve been interested in the Irving Barber Co. shavette for some time as it’s, as far as I know, the only shavette able to take a Schick injector blade. Most shavettes take the longer Japanese Feather or Kai blades, which are excellent, but being a Schick injector enthusiast, was looking forward to using the excellent blades in a shavette format.

    The razor is very well designed and built, almost a work of art. It can handle, and automatically registers, Japanese injector blades, Schick (or Personna) injector blades or half a DE blade. Naturally, my first shave I used a standard Chinese Schick injector blade, which was easily loaded onto the pivoting portion of the blade holder and held in place by two small but strong magnets. Then the holder is swung into alignment and secured with an easy to use retention screw. This circular tightener has ridges on its periphery, making it very easy to tighten, even with wet fingers. It’s recessed into the blade holder so doesn’t get in the way, like it might appear from the picture. The blade was evenly exposed along its length and held securely once cinched in.

    Right from the first shaving stroke this razor felt like an old familiar tool in my hands, but then again I’m very used to using a regular straight razor or Feather shavettes. I find that I actually prefer the shorter length of the Schick blade, compared to Japanese injector blades, as it’s much easier to maneuver into tight places or hollows under cheekbones, without worrying about the blade tips nicking the high spots on either end. I hadn’t shaved in three days, yet after just two passes had an effortless near-BBS shave, with zero irritation. I own many straight razors and over a dozen shavettes but this beautiful razor really jumped out and impressed me from the outset. I bought the elegant model with a gunmetal blade holder and matte black scales and it is a looker. Irving also includes a nice leather snap pouch to store the razor when not in use.

    If you’ve been looking for a shavette that can take Schick blades, look no further and simply order an Irving shavette! The quality is outstanding and one of these very well made gems should provide a lifetime of service.
