in a replaceable blade format.
A precision shaving instrument, crafted to give you a straight razor shaving experience in a replaceable blade format.
The Essence razor is a revolutionary shavette that replicates a traditional straight-razor experience without the maintenance that comes along with a traditional straight-razor.
It gives you the possibility to use your favorite razor blades while crafted out of high quality materials to be a lifetime investment.
UNIQUE & TIMELESS
A new way to experience an old tradition.
The Essence razor originated in a love of eye-catching design, produced using the highest-quality materials. We adore the close attention to detail seen in custom-made straight razors and combine this with the practical features of a modern Shavette.
Essence supports double and single-edge razor blades.
Our advanced blade loading mechanism allows razor blades to be replaced fast, easily, and safely.
But it also goes on a step further with the use of a variety of different razor blade types. These include DE blades, feather AC blades and mini-injector razor blades.
Shaving methods are a personal choice, so being able to use your preferred blade and have the flexibility to use different blades for different tasks results in an effortless experience.
A stable grip create a more forgiving shaving experience.
The fierce long tail gives the Essence razor a unique appeal and allows for the fullest range of grips, from traditional style to barber.
Aggressive jimping at the top and the bottom of the tang allows for a non-slip grip, even while wearing soap-covered nitrile gloves.
With a deep thumb notch, designed for a choke grip, this feature is loved by Barbers for its ultra-precise detail work.
Transform your shaving into an empowring experience.
Shave with your prefered angle.
Bringing you close to a real straight-edge experience, therazor has a sleek wedge-shaped grind which offers more freedom to angle your blade just the way you want to.
Ergonomically designed, the razor blade feels like a natural extension of the blade holder. It adds to the authentic straight razor shaving experience.
17-4 stainless steel
Optimal weight and perfect balance ensure a comfortable shave.
A strong stainless body offers the best support for an intuitive and forgiving shave. A sleek aluminium handle acts to counterbalance the stainless-steel blade holder, creating the perfect balance from every angle.
The Essence razor is crafted from the finest metals to be a lifelong investment.
The Essence razor is not just another everyday razor.
If you just look for a regular shavette that gives you a nice shave.
Essence is not for you. This razor is built for men who value design, craftsmanship and the ultimate straight razor shaving experience.
Every Essence razor is made out of nothing but the purest and highest-quality metals. This metal is formed into solid billets and moved to a state-of-the-art facility where each part is individually CNC-machined to achieve an incredible degree of 0.05mm precision.
After years of research, hundreds of prototypes and relentless dedication to mastering the creation of Essence, we continue the pursuit of perfection to make every Essence razor a lifetime investment.

We believe that straight razor shaving is so much more than just an old-fashioned way to shave. Especially in this hectic and fast-paced world, a straight razor shave is a great opportunity to disconnect, calm down, and recenter ourselves.
Have been using the Essence for a month and a half now for daily head and face shaves. Out of 30+ shavettes this has become my number one razor. Why? Beautiful, choice of blades, balance, quality of material. I get a lot of pleasure using it, feels like it was made especially for my needs. I’ve let a few people use it including a barber and they also where enthusiastic.
I'm a barber and I have been dreaming from such a shavette for years. The Essence shavette is on an extremely high level in terms of quality and manufacturing. It's unbelievably satisfying to work with this shavette and I can highly recommend it to all barbers and hairdressers.
I'm a collector of vintage razors and I'm a huge lover of straights in general. I'm normally not using Shavettes, which made me a bit skeptical in the first place. But all my concerns were gone the moment I had the Essence razor in my hand. I'm absolutely stunned by the high quality, the design, and the precise machining. This razor convinced me to give Shavettes a new chance and I'm more than pleased so far. I'm now desperately waiting for the stand to display this amazing piece on my shelf.
I had the chance to test the razor for 3 days and I love how simply the razor blade loading process works. Also, the fact that I could use different razor blades is a huge plus for me. Another big plus is the balance. I will order one as soon as the razor is out.
I love this Shavette. I'm mostly using safety razors or straight razors. I own some Shavettes but I do not use them that often. Shaving with the Essence razor was an extremely satisfying shave. It's the complete package IMHO. Quality, design, functions, and shaving experience are all on the highest level.
