What is a Throat Razor?
Basically, a cut throat razor has a single straight blade that is attached to a handle by a pin. The blade folds into the handle (the handles are known as scales) when not in use.
The steel used for the blade must be of the highest quality, typically silver steel and carbon steel is used.

Are cut-throat razors worth it?
Not only are cut-throat razors far better for the environment, but they are also kind to your skin too. The use of a singular blade means your skin is subject to less pressure and friction, reducing soreness and damage.
How long do cut-throat razors last?
A well-maintained, good-quality razor should deliver a tug-free, close, smooth shave for 9 months at least before it needs to be honed. Honing, like shaving and stropping a cut throat is a skill that needs to be learned over a period of months.
Why do barbers use cutthroat razors?
A barber blade razor is a cutthroat or a straight-edge razor. Barbers choose them for being easy on the skin and cutting a close shave. A wet shave with a straight-edge razor is smoother than with a disposable razor.
