Description: These razors may be intimidating, but you have nothing to fear.They're quite easy to use and a single blade allows for closeness and precision. You'll get a superior shave and with the proper care, this should be the last razor you buy, saving you money and preventing plastic waste.
Each razor comes with 10 high quality double-edged razor blades. After you’ve used these up, replacement blades are just 15 cents each.
Why: Over 2 billion plastic razors and shaving cartridges are thrown away each year, just in the US. That’s a lot of unnecessary plastic! Buying a stainless steel safety razor reduces your plastic waste, and it’s cheaper because you buy it once and use it again and again, only replacing the blades.
Material: Stainless Steel
To load blade in razor: To open the butterfly razor, twist the handle, which lifts the butterfly “wings.” Place the blade securely on the holder between the wings and twist the handle to close, which secures the blade in place. You're ready to shave! (It sounds complicated, but it’s quite simple when you see it in action.)
To Shave: Wet skin with warm water. Lather shaving cream onto skin. Hold blade at a 30 degree angle and let the weight of the handle do the work. Do not pull the razor across your skin like you would with a plastic disposable razor. Use short strokes, about 2 inches long, especially in the beginning of your shave, and rinse the blade frequently with warm water.
Care: Rinse your razor thoroughly after each use and shake it dry. Do not dry the blades with a towel, as that will more quickly dull the blade. Store your razor in a dry spot away from water and humidity. If you ever notice corrosion or rust starting to develop, rub the spot vigorously with a terry cloth towel, or if a more aggressive approach is needed, use a small piece of emery cloth.
Disposal: Utility will gladly accept your used blades and recycle them for you. Blades can also be recycled curbside if they are secured in a metal can. Please do this to ensure the safety of everyone, including recycling handlers.
