Sabre GEM Razor
100% USA made/ machined GEM Razor by Blackland
The Sabre is a modern three-piece safety razor that uses the single-edge GEM blade. It is designed, machined, and finished entirely in the United States. By using a modified threaded top cap, the Sabre assembles like a standard three-piece safety razor and is compatible with standard safety razor handles. Each of the Sabre’s three pieces is machined from solid 303 stainless steel to astoundingly tight tolerances, delivering exceptionally close and consistent shaves.
When designing the Sabre we were committed to making a maneuverable and balanced head. Rather than use a spring-loaded top cap to hold the blade in place as older GEM razors did, we decided to use a modified threaded post to hold the blade as tightly as possible. This makes the Sabre a true three-piece safety razor that requires no extra parts to function properly. Due to the length of the GEM blade, positioning the post behind the blade creates an unacceptably unwieldy and front-heavy razor. By modifying a standard post we were able to make the Sabre head as small and maneuverable as possible while maintaining perfect balance. The result is a wonderfully smooth razor that is a joy to use.
