Our Double Edge Razor GC2.0 - CNC-milled precision from Austria
Our Greencult razor GC2.0 is the premium successor of our Allrounder-Razor GC1.1. Shorter handle, new design, different base plates and sand blasted finish. The razor is made of 303 stainless steel in Austria.
Unlike commercially available razors, most of which come from Asia, ours is milled using the CNC process and made from one piece of steel. Production from high-quality stainless steel offers some advantages such as individual tolerances, a better blade fit and a more robust material.
What makes our GC2.0 special:
100% Made in Austria: in our family business in Goetzis, Vorarlberg
functional design: shorter handle, new design, different base plates and sand blasted finish
hidden blade ends: A razor head where the razor blade does not protrude from the side – no more unnecessary cutting!
made from stainless steel: the entire razor is made of 303 stainless steel, which is 100% sourced from Europe (AT,DE, IT, PRT, etc. depending on the supplier). We do not have a chrome-plated surface (chemical environmentally harmful production process due to inferior base material) like many of the other razors on the market.
4 base plates:
- I: suitable for beginners, for daily shaving.
“With the I plate, it is just as you would imagine a gentle razor to be. 100% safe, 100% non-irritating, yet thorough.” – customer feedback
- II: suitable for beginners and advanced shavers, for daily shaving, slightly more lasting than I
“A simple and straightforward shave. More thorough than with plate I. Slightly less bladefeel than the III but little difference in result.” – customer feedback
- III: more direct, advanced, for a 3-day-old beard.
“The III plate is noticeably milder than IV, but still direct. To match plate IV, it would need a much sharper blade.” – customer feedback
- IV: direct, advanced, for a 3-5 day beard.
“The IV plate is thorough, direct, very sustainable, and brilliant for someone with a 5 day beard and experience, but not for beginners.” – customer feedback
Plastic disc as scratch protection: as a special highlight, we have pressed a plastic disc directly in the handle. This prevents scratches from occurring between the two metal parts at the transition to the headpiece. If you don’t want this, you can simply remove the disc. The M5 thread in theory only needs 2.5-3 turns of the thread to reach the full tensile strength of about 300kg – so there is no restriction in this regard.
Glass bead blasted finish: this brings out a velvety uniform surface. Our finish cannot be described as “matt” as it has a brilliant sheen. Furthermore, the abrasive compacts the surface and brings a pleasant feel. The grain size of the abrasive is in the 0.001 mm range.
Holder for razor: Release Q4 2023 or Q1 2024
Blades + thread protector for travel: now released

Nov 2019: Our Greencult razor goes live for the first time: with the handle of the current GC1, but with a purchased zinc cast head, as funds are still low.
Okt 2020: Go-live of the first Greencult razor 100% Made in Austria. The GC1.0. Now, in addition to the handle, the head is also regionally produced and 100% stainless steel with a gap of 0.95mm and a blade exposure of 0.25mm. This first model GC1.0 is currently no longer available.
July 2022: After our razor GC1.0 became known, demand and feedback increases. For this we revise our unisex GC1.0 model a final time according to the feedback of our customers. With a gap of 0.65 mm and an exposure of 0.10 mm, we have brought a high-quality and, above all, affordable unisex entry-level model onto the market: the GC1.1.
October 2022: Our premium razor GC2.0 is launched. 4 base plates, shorter handle and glass bead blasted finish. Of course made of 303 stainless steel and Made in Austria.
- CNC machined razor: we can achieve 0.01mm precision. This is NOT possible with stainless steel razors, which are cast or printed.
- Our GC2.0 is ideal for wet shaving with its short handle and 4 different base plates.
- As a special highlight, we have pressed a plastic disc directly into the handle by hand. This prevents scratches from occurring between the two metal parts at the transition to the headpiece. If you don’t want this, you can simply remove the disc. The M5 thread in theory only needs 2.5-3 turns of the thread to reach the full tensile strength of about 300kg – so there is no restriction in this regard.
- Glass bead blasting was used for the finish, as this brings out a velvety uniform surface. The finish cannot be described as “matt”, as it has a brilliant sheen. Furthermore, the abrasive compacts the surface and brings a pleasant feel. The grain size of the abrasive is in the 0.001 mm range.

Our family business
With the globalization boom of the last decades, most companies have switched to production in the Asian region with pure chrome plating over zinc casting.
Through my partner, who runs a metal processing company in the Rhine Valley in the 2nd generation, I set out together with him to bring a high-quality model from Austria to the market and ensure full transparency.
This resulted in the first model with purchased head from Asia at the end of 2019. Since 2020, we offer our model GC1 (former GC1.0, now GC1.1), which is 100% produced by us in our family business in Vorarlberg, Austria. With this model, we can offer an unbeatable price for the quality we offer. We now distribute our model worldwide.
Our unisex razor GC1.1 is now joined by the new GC2.0 model with shorter handle and 4 base plates – depending on personal preference from gentle to very direct BBS shave.
