The straight razor is an old-fashioned shaving razor with a polished wooden handle. Though its blade is short, it's lightweight and can deliver several slashing hits in rapid succession. It also provides bonus Critical Chance benefits, and bonus Critical damage.
This weapon is classified as a "Holdout" weapon, and can be smuggled into areas that prohibit any kind of weapons. It's the second weakest weapon, next to the rolling pin.
