|Why a Safety Razor?
Well, to be honest a group of us got chatting about shaving and how we
all seemed to be spending more and more on the three, four and five
blade offerings from the razor manufacturers. Also, no matter how many
blades were added, it was still a case of squirting some goo from a
tin, rubbing it onto our face and then dragging the latest razor
across for a very average shave. No real thought, just a daily chore.
I decided to buy a modern safety razor, some blades, proper soap and a
shaving brush. The really nice thing that I found, right from that
first shave was that I actually thought about what I was doing and
actually enjoyed the experience! Whatís more I didnít cut myself and
got the closest shave Iíve ever had! That was it, Iíve never looked
back. Much less expensive and better for the environment too!
The double-edged safety razor blades are far less expensive than the
latest multi blades Ė see for yourself in our catalogue. The safety
razor blades are also totally recyclable as they arenít encased in
plastic, they are good quality coated steel Ė just save the old ones
in an old steel drinks can (not an aluminium coke can), crush it and
pop it in the recycling bin.
The soap also lasts far longer than aerosol foam or gel and your skin
will feel much better too. So gentlemen, in short we are being conned,
the latest semi-disposable razors rely on expensive consumables (the
blades) Ė the razor may last you a year or two (until you are forced
to buy the next model or the current one wears out) but youíll spend
hundreds of pounds on blades.
A good modern (or vintage) safety razor will last a lifetime and
instead of paying around £8 for four blades, you pay around £1.50 for
five to ten blades and theyíll give you more shaves per blade too!
Well, hereís a chance to change all this, try a safety razor and see
