Standard Razors June 2017 Update

Hello customers, fans, and friends of Standard Razors! It has been a while since our last update, so we wanted to say hi and let you know what's going on with Standard Razors. While it may not appear so from the outside, we are busy behind the scenes working on some new products which we hope to launch later this year. If you're not subscribed to our newsletter - make sure you sign up here so you get all of our announcements first. Now, onto the news that we can share:

- We have made some revisions to our website - including an updated homepage, a new frequently asked questions (FAQ) page located here, and some updated product imagery. All of these updates were performed with the hope of providing a better experience for you, our customers, so if you have any comments or suggestions for how we can further improve - please let us know! We'll be making further adjustments and refinements as time goes on, but we are open to your feedback. 

- If you have purchased one of our Standard Razors we recommend you glue the screw into the top cap. Just a small amount of glue should work, but this will prevent the screw from unthreading from the top cap and potentially being lost. If you purchased your razor from StandardRazors.com in 2017,this won't apply, as we have glued all the screws into the top cap since the beginning of this year. Again, if you have any questions, please reach out!

- We have heard from some customers that their screw has been in their handle for years and has worked flawlessly this way. If that's your situation - then there's no need to change - just be careful when you screw the top cap in as it's not as strong as the handle and you risk damaging your razor!

That's all for now - but as always, thanks so much for your support!

Happy Shaving!

Stands are Back!

This is a big day for us. Based on the emails, website inquiries, and social media requests, we know that you have all been eagerly waiting for us to restock our Standard Bases - the only stands that are designed to work with Standard Razors. We are pleased to announce that as of today we are back in stock with stands in all three of our colors - black, raw, and gunmetal!

At Standard Razors we believe in being transparent, and part of that transparency means letting you know when issues come up. Unfortunately, due to some manufacturing issues, the stands in our most recent production run didn't turn out as awesome as we would like. While overall it's nothing major, we aren't 100% satisfied with the quality of the finished product.

    We believe in only producing and shipping the highest quality products, and unfortunately the stands we currently have available don't meet those requirements. We have debated for a long time on what to do about these stands and we think we have come up with a good solution for everybody:

    • If you are only happy with a 100% perfect product (and we don't blame you), then you should wait - we are working on fixing these problems and hope to have issue-free stands back in stock in the future - we will give you a timeline as soon as we can
    • If you are ok with some slight blemishes/defects that you may not really notice with your stand, then we will happily sell you one…or two….or three - by itself or part of a set - at a discounted rate - to say sorry that it's in less than perfect condition

    Here is what you can expect from one of the stands we currently have in stock:

    • We have inspected each stand and only ones with minor defects are available for sale
    • The stands may have small chips, scratches, touch ups, or dents
    • Many of the issues are only noticeable if you look very closely, but won't be apparent from a normal distance or a casual glance across the room

      A Video Primer on Shaving...

      The N.Y. Shaving Co. and Bespoke Post collaborated on a video together, which features our signature Standard Razors Black Model.

      The video is titled "How (and Why) to Use a Safety Razor" and it's a relatively short (but sweet) video that is true to its title.

      Now, a lot of you are experienced Safety Razor users, but the video is well-made and shows our product in action, so you may just fall in love with it. Plus, it's short, which should leave you more time for shaving.

      There are quite a number of you who are new to this type of shaving though, so here's a quick review from one of our newest users, Raul Espinoza Jr. (@RaulEspinozaJr on Twitter):

      "Awesome razor. First time using a DE so I'm learning slowly. Razor is flawless and very sleek."

      Guess you can fit a good review in 140 characters or less.

      Here's the video we mentioned:
