I announce the new cooperation with Koraat-Knives, an Austrian straight razors manufacture, that produce an high quality handmade razors.
We have worked to a razor model, that could match with our metallic shaving brush:

8/8
- our Logo, in our style, lasered on the blade
- near wedge ground
- Spanish point, in a very pronounced form (match with the curves in our logo)
- notch near the thumb notch
- coarse serrations on top of the tang
- fine serrations on the bottom 
- polished forge structure (match the surface of our brushes)
- scales in my classic design in ebony and with brass Bullseyes
- turned brass spacer in satin finish (similar to the shape as our brush)

The steel used is "silver steel" DIN 1.2210. It´s a high quality tool steel which is traditionally used for razor blades. It has a high carbon content of 1,10-1,25% and some additions of Chromium (0,5-0,8%) and Vanadium( 0,07-0,12%) to increase wear resistance and grain fineness.

The first razors will be ready in the month of October.

The price will be € 245 ( + VAT for the European market )

In order to prevent waiting queues, you can book now, without having to anticipate money, simply making request to: razor@saponificiovaresino.com

Only for the first 15 reservations, we’ll give a 70th anniversary shaving soap, as gift. http://www.saponificiovaresino.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=128&language=en

Nice collaboration it looks great, I really like the Koraat razors anyway so I'm sure this will be a very good alternative. Best of luck with everything!

I ordered a few Koraat straights in the past and so did a lot of people on the Dutch shaving forum and so far everybody is very happy with them. A custom maker that's flying a bit under the radar but a great one!

Razors are now going to the final polish and honing processes. They should be here in less than 2 weeks.

Just paid my invoice, and I am also one of the fortunate first fifteen to sign-up so a 70th anniversary shaving soap will be coming my way too! This razor is a bargain for a special edition, and a Koraat (read-up on Ulrik Beyer to learn why he's likely to be one of Europe's better craftsmen for decades to come). SV soaps are among my top three shaving soaps. A big thanks to Ale for having this promotion and limited edition.

No need to switch—simply add straight razors to your rotation. You'll learn more about shaving through straight razor shaving than any other form of razor.
