The Blackbird is a modern, double-edge safety razor designed, machined and finished in the United States. With looks inspired by the iconic SR-71 "Blackbird" reconnaissance aircraft, the Blackbird razor is as visually striking as it is functional. Each of the Blackbird's three pieces is machined from solid 303 stainless steel to astoundingly tight tolerances, delivering exceptionally close and consistent shaves.

The safety bar base plate provides a comfortable, smooth and irritation-free shave. The safety bar covers the entire length of the blade, offering the user great protection and reducing the risk of nicks or cuts. This is a versatile style of safety razor and is well suited for all wet shavers, even those with softer or thin beard types and sensitive skin.

The Finish: The machined finish proudly shows off the markings created during the process of machining each razor. The intricate, carefully-planned patterns left in the surface tell the story of the Blackbird's journey from solid steel to finished product.

Caring For Your Blackbird: The Blackbird is robustly built and will last many lifetimes with basic care. While stainless steel is resistant to corrosion, it is not immune. Tea staining or surface corrosion can occur when wet blades are stored in the razor. We recommend loosening the handle of your Blackbird in between shaves to allow the blade and razor to fully dry, preventing corrosion. Clean your razor occasionally with a mild soap and soft cloth. We do not recommend scrubbing the razor with a coarse towel or bristled brush.

A boundary crosser in DE shaving

A boundary crosser in DE shaving.

Such a delight to use: intuitive, and always with that feel of Backland luxury. I am an SE guy these days, but bought this on a whim, knowing that the very least I would get is a quality experience. I never thought I’d be torn between a DE and an SE for my desert island kit, but the Blackbird changed that in one shave.

Sheer craftsmanship and design innovation, which feels worth its price tag: the weight of the head is perfect; all you need to do is lock your wrist, let the heft drive your hand, and guide this baby through. The potential aggression of the set-up translates into an effortless glide. It could easily do BBS in two passes, but if you make that a leisurely three passes, it’s BBS+. I haven’t even tried anything but the Personna Lab Blue that it came with. Lovely.
