This multi-functional blade straight razor is built with patent features that no other razor has. Irving Barber Company is the first to bring you a razor patent 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 patent magnetic blade stabilizer for helping blades stay in place while seating. The weight of this 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 touchups. 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.
