Metal Safety Razor - this one has a butterfly opening - twist the bottom and put in the blade then twist shut. The thought of safety razors are a bit scary but the reality is they work very well and aren't scary at all, of course you will take it slow for a start until you get the hang of it then you will be away, a cleaner, closer shave!
With this one just make sure that before use it's nice and tight (if it's loose more of the blade will come out). The razor comes with 5 Blades (Astra, please specify if you would rather Shark brand). Extras can be purchased separately. Add a shaving soap for a discounted cost of $7.
A tip from the trenches: Use an elastic band to wrap around the handle again and again to make a grip. These can get slippery in the shower and get dropped!
So happy to have found an alternative to plastic! Thos razor is brilliant.
Great razor. The handle is too short (and I have small hands) so I would buy a longer one next time as it doesn't fit comfortably in your hands. Thank you for the suggestion of using a rubberband around the handle as it gets slippery in the shower/bath. Thank you for such a speedy delivery too!
Bought this as my previous one disappeared...
Much prefer the butterfly system. Good weight, but agree that the handle is too short (rubber band tip proved useful).
Shaving is a much nicer experience with a safety razor. Smoother shave and less often- win win!!
Took a while to figure out, it’s great on legs but I a bit rough on under arms, but that might be practice.
A fabulous razor, I love mine and recently gifted one to another Eco-conscious friend. It can take a little to get used to but I now find that I have to shave less frequently as the shave is closer and better. Highly recommend!
