The Sabre is a modern three-piece safety razor that uses the single-edge GEM blade. It is designed, machined and finished entirely in the United States. By using a modified threaded top cap, the Sabre assembles like a standard three-piece safety razor and is compatible with standard safety razor handles. Each of the Sabre's three pieces is machined from solid 303 stainless steel to astoundingly tight tolerances, delivering exceptionally close and consistent shaves.

When designing the Sabre, Blackland were committed to making a manoeuvrable and balanced head. Rather than use a spring-loaded top cap to hold the blade in place as older GEM razors did, they decided to use a modified threaded post to hold the blade as tightly as possible. This makes the Sabre a true three-piece safety razor that requires no extra parts to function properly. Due to the length of the GEM blade, positioning the post behind the blade creates an unacceptably unwieldy and front-heavy razor. By modifying a standard post they were able to make the Sabre head as small and manoeuvrable as possible while maintaining perfect balance. The result is a wonderfully smooth razor that is a joy to use

Level Two: Our Blackland Sabres come with the Level Two base plate as standard. This plate features a blade gap of 0.9mm and a shorter safety bar to increase both blade exposure and blade feel. The result is a razor that is highly efficient without sacrificing the smoothness that makes the Sabre such an incredible razor. Level Two is the right choice for those with experience in wet shaving.

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 Sabre's journey from solid steel to finished product.

Caring For Your Sabre: The narrow threaded post of the Sabre requires additional care when assembling. Align the post with the handle and thread the handle on slowly at first to ensure proper thread alignment. If resistance is met, back the handle off before attempting once more. Forcing a misaligned handle may damage the top cap and/or handle. Once the handle has begun to successfully thread onto the top cap, screw the handle on as normal.

The Sabre 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 Sabre in between shaves to allow the blade and razor to fully dry, preventing corrosion. Take additional care when using carbon steel GEM blades as they corrode easily. We do not recommend scrubbing the razor with a coarse towel or bristled brush.

Velvet sabre tooth

This razor is outstanding. I purchased from Slickboys a few months ago (who are great). The razor is drop dead gorgeous. Mine is on the level 2 (9mm) gap which suits me perfectly. It is good with one pass or ridiculous with three. Gem blades are not for everyone and check availability before buying. But I get so many shaves out of one blade, the pack of 100 I bought will last me a long long time. This product for me is the best razor I've ever used, coming from the ikon slant, and merkur slant (still fantastic). For me, this is just about having the best. A pure joy to shave with. It's hands down the most enjoyable shaving experience. Best with a rich shaving cream.
