This razor was handcrafted by Robert Quinn from Copper Laced Onyx, which is a member of the chalcedony family which also includes carnelian, agate, bloodstone, etc. Occurring naturally in a variety of colors, black onyx is polished to enhance appearance, a member of the quartz family. The name comes from the Greek word onyx which means nail of a finger or claw. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping Eros/Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as Onyx.
This razor handle can be fitted with either a Mach 3 or a Fusion head. Please select your preference from the available options.
The Gillette Mach 3 is a line of safety razors introduced in 1998 and the three blade design allows for a shave with less pressure to the skin and with fewer strokes, thereby reducing skin irritation.
The Gillette Fusion is a line of safety razors introduced in 2006. The Fusion has five blades on the front, and a single sixth blade on the rear for precision trimming and a smooth, comfortable shave.
