The Extrema Ratio T-Razor is an exceptional pocket knife, based on a straight razor blade. That'll come as no surprise, given its shape. Back in the early 20th century, almost everyone carried a pocket knife. This also brought about the first weapon laws, which restricted the types of knife you could have on you. Suddenly, pocket knives were no longer allowed to have a pointed tip. This led to people spontaneously breaking the tips of pocket knives to make them “legal”. Some people switched to carrying straight razors. This “abuse” of the straight razor inspired Extrema Ratio to design the T-Razor.
The Extrema Ratio T-Razor has a blade that is quite thick on the spine, but paper-thin around the edge. It is hollow-cut, just like a classic razor blade. Now let's answer the most obvious question: yes, it is razor sharp. Is it an actual razor blade? Not really.
Thanks to its thinly sharpened Böhler N690 steel blade, this knife is a big hit with knife enthusiasts. Not so much for heavy use, but rather an Italian design object. It's great for opening an envelope or peeling an apple, less so for woodworking or other tough tasks.
You open the T-Razor with the front flipper. The liner lock then holds the blade in place when opened. The handle is made of anticorodal aluminium, a top-quality alloy that is highly corrosion-resistant.
