These razors may be intimidating, but you have nothing to fear! They're easy to use and the blade gives a smooth, long-lasting shave. You'll never go back to disposable razors!
The razor includes 10 double-edged razor blades. After you've used these up, replacement blades are just 50 cents each.
Purchasing a safety razor will reduce plastic waste and save you money in the long run because you buy the handle once and use it again and again, only replacing the blades.
Over 2 billion plastic razors and shaving cartridges are thrown away each year, just in the US. That's a lot of unnecessary plastic!
Material: Stainless Steel
To load blade in razor: To open the butterfly razor, twist the handle, which opens its 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!
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-please put them in an envelope or something similar to prevent cuts. Blades can be recycled curbside if they are secured in a metal can.
