The thin handled double edged safety razor is a classic design that has stood the test of time. It is a great razor for all shavers, whether shaving your face, head, legs, chest, bikini line and whatever else you might choose to shave. The razor is made in the United Kingdom from steel, brass and chrome. The razor comes with 5 x razor blades to get you started.
The benefits of shaving with a double edged safety razor are:
- Single blade so less irritation to the skin, for men this means less rashing and spotting around the neck, for women who shave their legs less itchy grow back and ingrown hairs,
- No single use disposable plastic so your environmental impact is reduced,
- 200 razor blades cost about £20 so you save a fortune on razor blades.
To use the razor you:
- Unscrew the head and insert a blade,
- Hold the razor to your face at an angle of between 30 to 45 degrees,
- Allow the weight of the razor to ‘power’ the shave, using short strokes,
- When the razor becomes blunt it will ‘hang’ on the hair, rotate the razor or change the blade.
You must be over 18 years old to buy this razor.
