If you've ever wondered what the world's most expensive razor looks like, look no farther than Paris, France, where Hommage's Damascene Razor tips the luxury scales at $30,000.

This limited-edition straight razor features a platinum sheath made with the same age-old layering techniques as the Crusaders' swords. The Damascene Razor's blade is made in Germany, where it's hand-forged with 128 layers of Damascene steel in a rose and torsion pattern. It's then plated in platinum and treated to resist tarnishing. The Damascene Razor is packaged in a lacquered gift box made of anigré wood from Tanzania.
