We are Tedalus
A start-up based in Lucerne, Switzerland founded with one goal in mind:
To give men a new way to experience an old tradition, bringing the beautiful art of straight razor shaving into the 21st Century.
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.
It’s an elegant and sustainable way to shave which underlines our individuality by turning our back on throw-away society and bringing more culture, sustainability, and originality into our lives.
That's why a straight razor shave is based on a much deeper philosophy:
Your clear decision to value yourself and your time as a luxury.
Traditional straight razors are iconic and built out of high-quality materials. Unfortunately, they are challenging in maintaining a sharp edge. Barber straight razors on the other hand are more practical but often just tools, made out of cheap material without transporting the vibe and the aesthetics of a real straight razor.
But does it have to be that way? Do we really have to make compromise between quality and practicality?
We don’t believe that. That's why we made it our mission to design a unique barber straight razor that is a contemporary tool and an art piece.
The idea behind the Essence folding razor was to take the design philosophy, the love for high-quality materials, and attention to details from high-end custom-made straight razors and combine them with the practical features of a modern barber straight razor / Shavette.
A razor that gives you the flexibility to use different razor blades types while at the same time retaining the classic aesthetic of a high-quality straight razor.
A razor that is crafted out of the finest materials to be sustainable and a lifelong investment.
It took us over 2,5 years to come to this point, and we are more than excited to finally introduce the Essence razor to you.
We and our trusted manufacturing partners are ready, what we now need is your help to raise the funds for our first official production run.
