Although…despite how sharp the blades are, it’s really not dangerous. You just need to know how to shave with a safety razor. And once you’ve mastered it, enjoying a super-close shave time after time, you’ll wonder why you ever did it another way. Shaving subscription services have been gaining traction for a good few years now. The idea is that busy men can simply sign up, have a razor delivered and then receive replacement blades and shaving creams in the post as and when required, without having to lift a finger. For us, shaving is about feeling free and having your own unique style – whether you choose to sport designer stubble, a well-tended beard or smooth, clean skin – so whichever of our wide range of men’s razor blades you choose, we’re confident that it’ll help you find your look. The right razor blade is the key to looking truly sharp, and we’ve got something here to meet every need. But some people choose to graduate onto something a bit more specialised once they’ve mastered the art of safety razor shaving. There are adjustable safety razors, ones with slanted heads, various safety features, travel razors and even ones made out of titanium or stainless steel. Some manufacturers offer artisan-made safety razors that are entirely customisable, come in various weights and can be engraved. And if you want to look achingly cool and professional, you could always try a vintage cut throat razor .

Once you’ve been over your whole face, you’ve made one “pass”. Don’t be tempted to go over the same area without first applying some more shaving soap or cream. The soap protects your skin, so if there’s still some hair left after one pass, rinse your face and then pop some more on. Step 7: Clearing up The Wilkinson Sword Classic is a twist to open double edge razor. The handle is brass and the head Zamak, both plated in chrome. My first, and probably many people’s, foray into DE shaving was with the plastic three-piece Wilkinson classic so I was interested to test this one out. Of course, it’s not all as simple as that. Our blades are designed in a number of different ways. Classic Double Edge blades represent shaving at its most traditional – these are simple blades that can fit into any butterfly or even cut throat razor. Many of our more modern razor blades boast an innovative lubrication strip or hydrating gel pool that helps to provide an unbelievably smooth glide along with unbeatable comfort whilst shaving. No problems to report in the first pass. It feels smooth enough and efficiency is perfectly acceptable. To get the closest shave possible, it’s a good idea to take a shower first, or at least place a hot towel on your face for a minute or two. This softens your facial hair up and opens your pores. It’s like rolling the red carpet out for your razor. Step 2: Lather up

Do You Really Need That Many Blades?

Aside from that, you may sometimes need to resort to disposable razors if you’re travelling or away from home. Due to the plastic waste involved, you should do your best to avoid this happening but if it does, try to go for a recycled or eco-friendly option. How Much Should You Spend? The soap or cream is best applied with a brush – not just because it feels great and makes you look like a Hollywood tough guy, but also because it lifts hairs up and makes sure they’re completely covered. Do you ever get an urge to live life on the edge? Do you fancy running off to become a pirate on the high seas? Oooh…how about lion-taming? Or maybe you could start a new life as an international art thief? Gillette’s Sensor3 is the world’s best-selling 3-blade disposable razor, and for good reason. Its three-blade, 40° pivoting head allows it to effortlessly adjust to the contours of your face, giving you a closer shave, while the integrated Lubrastrip with water-activated Comfortgel technology reduces drag and ensures it won’t irritate the skin. A travel bag must have.

Apply shaving cream or soap: You’ll want a good layer of creamy lather all over the area you intend to shave. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about using a safety razor for the first time, there’s a few things to keep in mind when choosing the best safety razor for you:

The best safety razors 2021:

It is definitely a step up in terms of quality to the original plastic classic (which in its self is also a great starter razor) and I for one am pleased that options like this are becoming readily available. One of the positives of using a classic double-edge razor is it doesn’t create any plastic waste. But Bambaw has taken things a step further and made this one out of bamboo. The brand’s approach to shaving creates zero waste as both the blades and the handle are recyclable. A great shaving option for the eco-minded consumer.

Safety razors can be great when you’re looking for a clean, close shave, avoiding irritation and ingrown hairs. Replacement blades for a safety razor are also very affordable, making a safety razor a great investment, which will save you money in the long run. But ‘razor’ is a broad term these days. There are a lot of different types of razors to choose from and a range of factors to take into account before handing over your money. How much should you be looking to spend? How many blades is too many blades? Just what exactly is a safety razor anyway? Don’t worry though: people will still think you’re mad, bad and dangerous to know if you casually mention you use a barber’s razor. They don’t have to know it’s actually pretty easy – and leaves your skin smoother than a baby’s bum. Plus, there’s even safety razors suitable for beginners. How do you shave with a safety razor? We know from our experience that those who have tried and enjoyed that type of shaving will always upgrade from a cheaper razor like the Jagen David E01 to something like a Muhle or Merkur branded safety razor.

As odd as it sounds, it’s really important to pull your skin a little tighter in areas with contours or folds (such as along your jawline and around your mouth). With your skin taut, the razor won’t have to negotiate bumps and dips, so you’re less likely to cut yourself. Step 4: Shave with the grain Whether you’re after something steeped in tradition like the Classic Double Edge Razor or the kind of boundary-pushing, why-did-no-one-think-of-it-before technology that will turn your mornings upside down, it’s all here.
