This Whacker is fitted with Umboya scales and wedge The tang and heel design ensures this razor sits very comfortable in hand, despite its fairly heavy weight. This razor has a longer radius under the thumb, so suitable for small to vary large hands The wide, rough edged steel is 6 mm thick under the thumb, making the need for jimps to improve grip obsolete. The blade has a height of 25 mm and the razor weighs 69 grams, it has a half hollow grind. This razor blade is a bit shorter than most with a working blades section of 50 mm. The hardness is dialed in at 61-63 HRC.
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 had to limit the time spent on fit and finish, but believe us when we say these razors are going to find 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, these are some damn pretty creations and I personally prefer them over most vintage razors I have used, and even some new razors from larger manufacturers. They are all created from raw materials and unique in appearance.
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.
