The meaning of the word “hone” is to refine, or perfect over time and the folks over at the razor company Hone are looking to refine and perfect the practice of shaving through intelligently-designed razors that not only make your skin feel nice and smooth, but also have a well-designed feel and the look.
To them, shaving is “is a moment of reflection in an otherwise hectic life. A good shave prepares your face for the important day ahead and gives quiet confidence. Like any job worth doing well, choosing the right tool is important.”
How did they come up with the right tool? They took the classic razor and turned it into an approachable and uncomplicated product that makes the daily ritual of shaving all the more worth it. They wanted the parts to feel like they belong together, so that you don’t get that awkward feeling that you get when you use a poorly designed razor. Each razor is CNC machined, giving it a specially sculpted feel that is nice on the hand. It’s also balanced, which puts you behind the wheel of the razor–no straying grazes that causes potential nicks. You can also pivot around the center of gravity. The Type 15 razor comes in solid brass, which means that it offers great thermal conductivity, has a substantial weight, and will change its finish over time. Type 15a comes in aluminum in either silver or black, along with the addition of a 100 mm option.
There’s also a leather case in black and papaya that carries around your Hone razor in style. So what’s more satisfying than a great shave from a razor that will last for years to come? Pick up the Hone Type 15 or Type 15a–you know you’ll have it for the rest of your life.
