Better for the environment and better for your beard, safety razors are an investment in self-care. Simply replace the cutting blade when it becomes dull to ensure you have the closest shave every time!

Choose a Grooming Routine with Tradition

Let's get back to basics and begin shaving the way your grandfather did. Shaving with a safety razor is a great way to add pleasure to your routine: change the blades, lather up your face with some shaving cream and shave with care. Just like the men in your family have done for hundreds of years.

Shaving with a safety razor is convenient, hassle-free and better for your skin. With replaceable blades, using a safety razor is simple and easy to get used to. When the double edge razor blades get blunt, simply replace them with sharp ones, lather up and go again. Its worth checking our some of our hair care products such as pre-shave oils, soaps & creams to provide the best skin protection for your shave.

Safety Razor FAQs

What is the best double edge razor for sensitive skin?

A safety razor is an excellent choice for sensitive skin. With an easy-to-use handle, your razor can help you reach those hard-to-reach areas. Post-shave, take care of your skin with a gentle moisturiser and enjoy soft, healthy-looking skin. In fact using a safety razor reduces irritation and razor burn as it cuts the hair at just the right length. Multi-blade razors are notorious for cutting hairs below the skins surface which can cause ingrowing hairs and other skin irritations / razor bumps.

Is it difficult to use a safety razor?

It is easy to get to grips with a safety razor - you're probably already using a similar disposable design. With a sturdy handle and flexible, adjustable shaving head, a quality safety razor is a great choice. Changing the blade is just as easy, simply purchase some replacement blades and insert one into the safety razor head by unscrewing the head and sliding it on to the pins. Then all thats left to do is to lather up some shaving cream to give you that extra layer of protection which will allow the blade to easily glide over your skin. Safety razors also come with a guard to help prevent any nicks.

There are tons of videos available on youtube showing you how to shave with a safety razor. It takes a little experience to get in nailed, but once you do you'll never look back.

What's the difference between a safety razor and a straight edge razor?

A safety razor, or a double edged razor, has removable blades, whereas a straight razor is the blade itself. Before using a straight edge razor, you must strop it to keep it sharp. With a safety razor on the other hand, you simply replace the blades when dull. 

Is a Safety Razor better than a cordless trimmer?

It depends how close of a shave you're looking for - A safety razor gives you an extremely close shave (the blade refills ensure your always working with a super sharp cutting edge). A rechargeable cordless clipper for example is better for a less close shave or stubble look.

There is of course less chance of injury using an electric razor with a guard but it just can't give you the closeness that a double-edge razors can. Ensuring your face is wet and lathering up some shaving gel / soap will give you the best chance of a blood free shave!
