Why High Proof Razors?
David designed this razor in 2020 and has been perfecting it ever since. David was tired of low quality razors that were made overseas and left him with ingrown hairs and skin irritation so he decided to make his own. In early 2022, David and Andy decided to work together to bring this product to market and now this American made razor is available to you!
The High Proof Razor was born from frustration.
We wanted something that could shave quickly, had a minimal learning curve, did not require proprietary blades, was made in the US, and would last a life time.
How does it work?
High Proof Razors require one half of a double edge safety razor blade. (less than $0.15 per shave).
The head of our razor pivots to fit the contours of your face, simpler than a standard safety razor. This pivot is made possible by opposing magnets so there is no spring to wear out.
The Razor Stand
Every High Proof Razor comes with a razor stand. This razor stand has a reusable mini-suction fabric on the back that allows you to stick the stand to any smooth, dry surface such as a mirror or shower wall. Additionally, the razor stand is equipt with a magnet that hold the razor firmly in place.

Reviews from the Pros
Josh Perkins (Subie Shaves)
"We've had FANTASTIC service from High Proof and their razor is a incredible Modern adaptation for the Safety Razor! I was one of the early testers and found the shave to be both intuitive and easy."
Ken Kirkup (Kensurfs)
"It's a very forgiving razor, it contours to my face, just what I like. I had a few days of growth that it knocked down, no problem."
