Double Edge Safety Razor Education

DE Safety Razors are great for three reasons.

  • 1) Quality: Safety Razors offer a superior shave. Most people experience a great reduction in irritation and a closer shave when switching to a safety razor. This is due to the design of the razors, the sharper blades, and your skin only being exposed to one blade at a time.
  • 2) Cost: Shaving with a DE Safety Razor is a more economical way to shave. Because the replacement blades only cost pennies, shaving with a safety razor starts to save you money fast.
  • 3) Style: Many Safety Razors are beautiful works of craftsmanship and a real pleasure to have displayed on a bathroom sink.

Types of Safety Razors

There are 5 types of safety razors: Closed Comb, Open Comb, Butterfly, Adjustable, and Slant. Close Comb and Open Comb differ only in the amount of razor blade that is exposed to the skin. Open comb safety razors expose more of the razor blade and are, therefore, considered more aggressive in wet shaving. Butterfly safety razors are one piece and have a twist-to-open mechanism which makes it easier to insert the blade. Adjustable razors allow for the blade gap to be customized, changing the amount of blade that is exposed to the skin- which affects the aggressiveness of the shave. Slant Razor heads are designed in a unique way the offsets the razor blade so that the razor is shaving at a specific angle. We recommend Closed Comb razors for anyone who is starting off in wet shaving.

Shaving with a Safety Razor

There are three fundamentals to shaving with a safety razor.

  • 1) Do not apply pressure. Unlike cartridge razors, the safety razor is designed so that the weight of the razor is applying the pressure needed to cut the hair.
  • 2) Have the right angle. It is important to maintain about a 30 degree angle when shaving with a safety razor. That means that you need to adjust the angle of your hold as you go around your jawline.
  • 3) Stretch your skin. It is important to keep your skin tight so that the blade can glide along your skin.

This razor meets my expectations,
This razor meets my expectations, it is as good as my second razor, which is the Parker 96L. They both are a great value for the money. I tend to only shave once to twice a week, and they do a very good job on a longer and thicker beard. Personally, I prefer the butterfly style to the closed comb.

Great product and worth every
Great product and worth every penny! A NY Times article brought it to my attention. You should use that somewhere on your web site. I had been looking to move back to a safety razor after the shock of the cost of the injector razor blades and lack of a good shave from their use. This safety razor improved both significantly.

Decent Razor Overall
I was pleased with this razor. It was my first open comb model, and fortunately, I took to it pretty quickly. I soon was having good shaves with it, after a slightly rough first try, which I will attribute to user error. My only complaint is that blade alignment could be a little better, but oddly, this does not stop me from getting good results. I like this razor very much.

Muhle R41 DE Safety Razor
Not a toy! Very close shave with NO weight applied. I too played with blades to find the right fit for me. As Dave said in his review, This is not a beginners razor, as it is not very forgiving of mistakes in technique.
