A hand crafted, wooden razor handle might not be the first thing you think of when you hear the word “basic”. In fact, Imperium Woodcraft is anything but basic. However we use time tested, simple ideas in our unique products that appeal to style conscious individual. If you have never heard of Imperium Woodcraft, here are 5 reasons why we’re your new favorite accessory.
1. Handmade in the USA
Imperium Woodcraft is proud of our humble beginnings in the basement of a historic row home in Ellicott City, MD. Through the years, we have developed a strong online presence, expanded into a variety of retail stores throughout the USA and Canada, and opened our first Imperium Woodcraft store in Maryland. We continue to design, carve and package each razor by hand to maintain our dedication to craftsmanship.
2. Wood and more
Although wooden razor handles are our speciality, Imperium Woodcraft offers a variety of acrylic resin, braided copper and limited edition handles as well. The bright colors and bold patterns of our non-wood handles are made using the same turning process as our wooden handles so you can always expect exceptional quality from Imperium Woodcraft.
3. A unique and thoughtful gift
Whether it’s an uncle, daughter-in-law, friend or that person who already owns everything, a razor from Imperium Woodcraft is the perfect gift for almost anyone. We also feature sets for special occasions such as weddings or business events. Since we work closely with our customers, you have the option to customize any gift by choosing the kind razor, set or stand.
4. Eco-conscious mission
Imperium Woodcraft has always utilized environmentally conscious techniques to make our products. We use locally sourced or sustainable exotic wood to make each razor. At Imperium Woodcraft we have developed a wood salvaging project in order to preserve as much local wood as we can find. This not only helps our eco-friendly company but also preserves a piece of history that you can hold in your hand.
5. Attention to detail
We always have the customer in mind when crafting our razors. Whether you will be displaying an Imperium Woodcraft razor in your bathroom or giving one to a friend, understand that no two handles are the same. Since each product is turned on a lathe by hand, there is no pattern or formula. Each handle is uniquely shaped so even if you buy from us more than once, you will never get the same razor twice. Also, every razor (wood or speciality) is made from a different cut of wood so each razor ends up with its own pattern and markings.
