Crafting your Bolin Webb Razor
Have you ever wanted to peek behind the curtain and see what’s going on? We sent out a film crew to show the journey that every Bolin Webb razor makes, from considered design concept through to finished product.
Award winning design
Bolin Webb has received numerous design and trade awards including Germany’s iF Design Award for the X1 razor and magnetic stand, and most recently the highest possible distinction in Germany’s product awards: ‘The Red Dot: Best of the Best’ for our contribution to extraordinary, innovative design.
Razors cast in England
All our razors are cast from a Zinc alloy in Birmingham, England. The alloy is melted down before being injected into one of our razor moulds. Once cooled, any imperfections are removed, any razor that fails inspection get melted back down.
Primed and painted to an automotive finish
It’s not just the the curves of the razor that are inspired by modern supercars, many of our razor colours are also inspired by the automotive industry. The cast razors are primed, then hand sprayed with premium automotive paints before a durable lacquer is applied. The lacquer protects the paintwork and gives the razors their luxurious finish.
Inspected and Polished by hand
Once dried, each razor is buffed and polished by hand. The razors are also checked for any imperfections in the paintwork, this ensures only razors finished to perfection make it through to completion.
Fitted with Gillette blades
All our razors come supplied with a Gillette blade. Readily available and offering a high-performance shave, Gillette uses low cutting force blades, which means less effort, tug and pull for a more enjoyable shave.
