This Whacker is fitted with African Blackwood scales and wedge The shape of the blade is that of our more popular blades, and although it looks mean it is quite user-friendly. It is a bit more hollow than most Whackers with somewhat of a belly. It has a half hollow grind and sings quite nicely. The blade has a height of 28 mm and a 6 mm wide spine, the razor is shave ready, and the hefty 97 grams of sharpness will glide down your cheeks effortlessly. The 52100 steel blade has a hardness of around 62 Rockwell, and hones quickly and comfortably on the whetstones. We blackened the blade slightly to give it a more sinister look and feel, the razor is pinned with 316L stainless steel rod and washers. We quite like the rough marks from the waterjet on the spine, it looks basic and badass.
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,
