The handle addresses several problems any wet shaver may face. Small, lightweight handles never leave enough space for the whole hand to grip, complicating the initial shave angle. By elevating the head 5/8' The Working Man Safety Razor enables visibility over the edge while shaving. The razor's weight is more than double that of other comparable tools, and this heft ensures that this tool does all the work, making for an effortless shave. This additional heft also makes any pushing of the razor against the skin to achieve a closer shave unnecessary. This tool adjusts to your favorite double sided safety razor blade and the handle is hand-machined on a lathe from 316 stainless steel. Sixty8 developed solutions with TDF Machine of Chicago to solve the problems both the founders and barber shop customers experienced; Sixty8 then combined the handle design with a straightforward and efficient Merkur Razor head finished in chrome for striking contrast. This result is the best possible double-sided safety razor available.
The presentation box is handmade and a piece of art in its own right. The Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago helped to source reclaimed old growth wood from deconstruction projects citywide, out of which Sixty8 created a practical and reusable box. The edges (rough sawn on all sides) tell the full, unusual story of this product. Every case is entirely handmade, and ensures that each case is unique. The cases are constructed in the workshops of The Rebuilding Exchange. The designers at Rohnner Letterpress in Chicago created the handmade insert inside the boxes, and is both functional and practical. The insert is engineered to keep the razor safe during shipping and to make a great impression upon opening.
