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. 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!
Easy to use, close shave. I saw so many people complain about handle size, which is a non issue unless you have the hands of a yeti. It is just like a normal razor, and after a couple of shaves i got the hang of getting a really good, close shave. Loved it so much i purchased the mens one for my partner. Not only that DH shipped it and in less than 24 hours it was in my hands. Extremely impressed. Will be buying more products from this company.
Absolutely love this razor. Easy to use and works so well! I use on legs and underarms and have no problems at all.
I love this product! However, a single blade isn't as effective as a 3 or 5 blade razor. Also, I have found that if you shave on a diagonal it will work much better opposed to shaving straight upward.
Safety Razor - Butterfly Opening
Was a little nervous about the metal razor, but its been great. Even easy to throw in my toilet bag. I am not sure if its because its metal and I am gentler, but I haven't cut myself at all, I thought I would need a some learning time.
