The Bundu Whacker is range of razors that are meant to fill a void in the market, and as with many new product lines, cost to customer was the biggest criteria. Our main aim is to collaborate with Andre from Grobler Cutlery to produce a handmade razor for around 2-3 k. Off course we have to limit time spent on fit and finish, these razors are finding regular use from novice and experienced shavers alike because they shave well and are very comfortable in hand. Despite the limitations we had on allowable input costs of these razors, the coolness factor was certainly not lost as they are all unique and made by hand. I think we can claim the cheapest functional, handmade range of razors around the globe, anyone that can dispute this?
Keep the scales in shape by simply applying our 'My bliksem balm' to it, and giving a quick buff a few minutes after. Humidity is your razors's number one enemy, dry properly after use and oil when stored for prolonged periods or when in high humidity environments.
