If you’re looking for different places to buy straight razors in Australia, then you have come to the right place. I have scoured the internet looking for all the different sites that sell straight razors.
The result of all my hard works is the following list. I have linked to the site’s page that lists it’s straight razors for sale, I also included a brief description of the different brands of straight razor that each site carries. Note: I’ve only listed the straight razor brands and shavettes that they carry. A lot of the sites also carry shaving soaps and creams, shaving brushes, DE razors, as well as DE blades
If you know of a website or a brick and mortar store that sells straight razors let me know in the comments. Hope you enjoy the list!

I accept fully your introduction to many, the art of shaving with a straight razor. Sadly in Australia we seem to lag behind the rest of the world when it comes to straight shaving. Of the retail stores I thoroughly recommend ‘Shaver Hut’ who have for at least the last three years given us a choice of Dovo’s, Thiers Issards, Hart Steel, even a few customs, their after sale service is excellent. Good guys, and have a real straight shavers soaps etc.
But if you aren’t flush with cash have a look at e bay RSPE7027 great razors, no duds, and not a kings ransom, bloke that runs it is from Victoria and he is an honourable gent.
As far as shaving goes, folks it’s addictive. I have 30 or so razors, more honing stones than I care to admit. This hobby straight shaving is great. You meet top people and no more bloody cartridge razors….cheers Bob
