Welcome to Koraat-Knives!
We are a small, austrian straight razor manufacture and are producing high quality, handmade razors.
The base for our straight razors are dropforged blanks made of Silversteel (DIN 1.2210) and bearing steel (DIN 1.3505). We let them forge at Solingen, Germany, in our own protected design. Further we offer straight razors made out of damascus steel. The damascus is so called „superclean“ damascus (DSC) produced by Balbach, Germany.
Beside the forging of the blanks, all other productionsteps are done at our shop. This includes the digital controlled hardening of each single blade, as well as the grinding, polishing, scale making and the final honing. We do only use high quality, meticulously selected materials in our manufacturing process.
If not otherwise agreed, all our razors are hardened to about 65 hrc. In our opinion, this is the perfect match between good honing properties, excellent sharpness and very long edge holding.
The video below, shows many of the working steps needed to produce our razors in a time lapse.
