In the fall of , Stan Hickam was a radiology technician in a small town in the rolling, rural Northeastern corner of Tennessee with an innocuous hobby: He collected old, corroded Gillette razors that no one wanted anymore, cleaned them up, and sold them on eBay. Unbeknownst to Hickam, the world of manly men at that time were discovering the virtues of vintage shaving gear with rapidly growing gusto. His razors quickly sold, he refurbished even more; they sold at even higher prices, and before he knew it Hickam had a new business on his hands.
After his something son-in-law told him exactly what you’d expect “You need a website” , his business started gaining attention. Under the catchy name “Above The Tie,” Hickam and Matt Cole the son-in-law started to sell not only refurbished Gillettes but also select shaving accoutrements: packs of double-edge razor blades which the old razors all require ; tubs of old fashioned shaving soaps; and fine brushes made with badger hair, which he had made under his own brand name.
As business grew, and Hickam kept refurbishing more razors, he noticed some patterns in the ones he liked best. On some, the razor’s head was curved so perfectly that its surface grabbed skin as it slid over your face, lifting it slightly so the blade could cut stubble almost below skin level. Some were adjustable, allowing a person to vary the shave’s aggressiveness based on skin type, beard thickness, extent of growth, facial curves, or any other variable.
Some, called “comb razors,” were made with a row of little teeth below the blade; the combs tend to leave a touch more shaving cream behind, which creates more glide. Some were made in three parts, which the shaver took apart and re-assembled with every blade change — a system that yields a very stable device but it’s fussy. For greater convenience, some were built as a single, multi-part mechanism, with “butterfly doors” that open with a mere twist of the handle.
Unfortunately, none of these razors possessed all of these attributes in one tool. A box of the vintage Gillette razors that inspired Hickam’s designs. Most of these are the adjustable models made in the late s, which take a single, old-style, double-edge blade.
If a cut-throat razor is a little, well, cut-throat, and you want that heritage feel, then opt for a classic safety razor. Originally invented in by Frederick and Otto Kampfe of Brooklyn, New York, the first safety razor using a disposable double-edge blade came along in thanks to King Camp Gillette and it has barely changed since. Firstly, they have an elegance and stylishness missing from modern razors. You can trust our independent reviews.
