Mastro Livi Stainless Damascus, 8/8 Full Hollow, Spanish Point

This straight razor is just one more proof of Mastro Livi's superior skill in forging stainless steel. This straight razor is in fact made by a totally artisan made stainless damascus steel and, moreover, it is completely made from martensitic stainless steels. This means this stainless steel damascus is perfectly suitable for hardening and making cutting edges. It was made two years ago by Mastro Livi in his workshop and I witnessed its making, just like all the straight razors he made for me. Today Mastro Livi calls his artisan made stainless damascus steel as "ArtInox" and this razor was one of the very first ones he made by making this type of stainless damascus steel. As a matter of fact, Mastro Livi experiments with new steels all the time, including modern steels, and he has always been committed in researching and experimenting new steels and forging techniques. This straight razor is just one of the countless results he has been capable of achieving in the course of his sixty-two years committed to straight razors making and steel processing. Shaving with this straight razor was absolutely impeccable and super comfortable. Of course.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Williams Shaving Cream
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Perugia Synthetic Eco-Silvertip, Bois De Rose, 26mm Knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi "Rasoio Italiano" Stainless Damascus, 8/8 Full Hollow, Spanish Point, Black African Ebony
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Argan Oil
  • After Shave: Mennen Blue

Brush: Semogue 1305
Soap: Valobra Shave Stick (converted into a cake)

Lather made on top of the soap
Two-and-a-half passes
