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 you skin tight so that the blade can glide along your skin.
Safety Razors Reviews

I love this razor!
I've only been using double edge razors for about 7 months and this is my first open comb. Although my previous razor was better then disposables I had a hard time getting some of my stubborn neck hairs. This razor dose the trick nicely. I'm getting a very close and very comfortable shave with my preferred blades. One pass is now usually plenty to get the hairs I would previously have had to go against the grain to get.



This is not a starter razor, there is a lot of blade exposed. It's not something to be feared but needs respect. It took me a good week to become comfortable with this razor. As it is I'm not sure I'll ever use my closed comb again.



It did take me a bit to adjust changing blades, coming from a 2 piece to the 3 piece. It goes together nicely and is solid, didn't have to crank down on it. The rose gold finish is a nice touch, looks great and time will tell how it holds up. The handle is lighter then I would like but still balances very well and I've quickly grown accustomed to it. If I ever lost or damaged this I would buy it again in an instant. This is my go to daily razor.

Best DE out there
I was so prone to ingrowns and neck irritation that I usually gave up on shaving. I have never in my life achieved such smooth, CLOSE & COMFORTABLE, irritation free shaves as I do consistently with the 37c. I get a near BBS in 2 passes with this guy. It has literally made daily shaving possible and enjoyable for me.

Top Of The Line Razor
I have been shaving for over 50 years now and have used all kinds of razors. In the past couple of years I run across Standard Razors and gave one a try. What an experience it was. At first I saw the gap and said to myself , this thing is going to rip my face up if I use it. I started out slow and couldn't even feel the razor cutting my beard at all. When I was done my face was so smooth that I couldn't believe it . This razor shaved me smoother than any other razor that I own and I have over 30 different DE's , SE's , Injector's and Straight razor's . After using this for a while and it's been over a year and a half and now I own all 3 of their razors . Each one gives a perfect shave each and every time I shave with them . I still use my other razor's but I alway's come back to the Standard Razors. If you want one of the best shaves that you ever had then, get one of these and you won't be sorry . Have a nice shave day.

Lovely shave
This is my first safety razor. What and experience! A few of my coworkers have straight razors and some safety razors, the recommended I try a safety razor. After a lot of reading I chose this razor, I'm glad I did. It just glided across my face so effortlessly. My face was smooth and not irritated like it normally is after shaving with a Gillette fusion blade. I wish I would have found this razor and wet shaving sooner!

Very Happy!
Love the razor! I also have a Merkur 23C and find this one to be more aggressive. For example I use Feather blades in the 23C and get a good shave. I shave with Astra Platinums in the DE89 and get a great shave. Feather blade tear me up with the DE89. HAHA! I recommend it unless you have very sensitive skin. But I don't think its overly aggressive.
