Before the dawn of plastic, Ivory was used in everything from billiard balls to piano keys. Taking it a step further, Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons created an old world-style straight razor fashioned with a 10,000-year-old fossilized Siberian Wooly Mammoth Ivory handle. Keeping with the theme and respect to the craft of years past, the razors used are restored vintage deadstock blades with sterling silver linings and rivets.
Each Mastodon Straight Razor is fully handcrafted in New York City and comes in an ebony and amber-stained wood case with a lock and key. As always, Black Sheep's attention to detail is sharp. Each Mammoth tusk handle features a 3mm quartz magnifying lens with a microscopic image of vintage erotica. Since everything is made to order they can swap out the image with one of your choosing.
The razors are available for purchase and are currently being used at the new F.S.C. Barbershop in New York. They will also be sold online at Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons starting at $2,200.
