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. Read more in our blog post.

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.

Muhle R41 DE Safety Razor
Incredible razor for coarse beards! Very easy to use and gives a very close shave! I started shaving with a safety razor 4 weeks ago. Ive always had to use clippers on my beard because of irritation from cartridge razors, but i never get a close shave with clippers. So i researched other options and found single DE blade razors as a solution to many with my shaving problems. I picked up a starter DE razor from walmart i think it was Van der haggen and started with that. After 2 weeks i out grew it and needed something more aggressive. Research pointed to the Muhle R41. Ive been shaving with it, pairing it with Feather blades, for the last week and a half and love it!

This handle is solid and is finished wonderfully. The weight is perfect and accepts the majority of razor heads on the market. Combined with the matching Open Comb head you cannot beat under $25 for a razor of this quality

My favorite razor
I have a very large razor collection & tried almost all of them.

There is something very special about this little guy. It gives the perfect shave every time. Also very versatile with any blade. Merkur has the best open comb head I've tried. If I had to buy and use only one razor, this would be my pick most definitely.

Perfect Fit
This is the razor that I have been looking for a long while. I have large hands and and the larger diameter, weight and length make this a perfect fit. The quality is equal to or better than my other razors and this has become my favorite. I couldn't be more pleased.

Merkur 34C Heavy Duty was my first safety razor and I still use it. It's a phenomenal razor for beginners and it doesn't break the bank.

1. Affordability-100 pack of blades cost average about $20 or $0.20. A blade will typical last 3-4 Shaves, so 100 pack of blades will last a full year. </p><p>2. Better For Your Skin-A safety tends to cause less irritation, less ingrown hairs and less razor bumps. In the long term improves the overall health of your skin.</p><p>3. Environmental-You reuse the safety razor, so there is no waste in terms of the razor. The razor blades can also be recycled reducing waste compared to cartridge razors. </p><p>4. Closer Shave-A safety razor tends to provide a closer shave once you learned the technique. There is also less irritation with a safety razor, so its a win-win situation.
