WHAT IS THE BEST RAZOR, FROME SAFETY RAZOR TO DISPOSABLE RAZOR HERE ARE 5 THINGS TO CONSIDER
There are so mnay razor options available so before saying what is the best razor it is important to consider the following:
TYPE OF RAZOR
Your biggest decision for users is choosing the type of razor. There are four main types – safety razor, cartridge razor,
straight razor, and disposable razor.
One of the most popular types of razors used by men is the double-edged safety razor. The blade in the safety razor is locked in a safe angle to expose only its edge and so is designed to prevent nicks and cuts during shaving. The safety razor was designed to be easy to use, which makes them great for new shavers, but are very commonly used by experienced shavers as well.
Because with safety razors, the blade is locked in it does present a restricted angle for the shaver and can cause problems trying to shave around the angle of the face and chin but is overcome after practice.
We specialise in safety razors including Bluebeards revenge, Derby razors and Parker safety razor.
Another type of men’s razor commonly used is the cartridge razor. This where there is a razor and the razor Cartridges
are separate. The quality of cartridge razors may vary greatly, but the best ones will give you a close shave without the risk of
nicks and cuts. The disadvantage is that razor cartridges can cost quite a lot, especially if bought from a store.
The eldest type of all razors is the straight razor. A straight razor is the vintage type that has been used for centuries. However it does
take experience in using them without serioulsy cutting your face and so not many use them.
Its a shame because they remain one of the most effective shaving tools and are found being used by specialist grooming outlets.
In contrast a Disposable razor is a more recent invention.
A true “disposable” razor is the type of razor in which the blade and handle are all one piece and is thrown away when the blades

They are cheap and ideal for travelling but you do get what you pay for quality wise.
HOW SENSITIVE IS YOUR SKIN?
If your skin is easily irritated by shaving, a safety razor is often a better choice than a multi-blade cartridge razor because they can
often take off skin from your face. However more modern cartridge razors have built in lubricating strips that helps the soothing
WHAT TYPE OF HANDLE
It might not walys be obvious but the best handles are often thicker so you can get a better grip.This is a consideration
that might not be thought about straight away but you need to be in full control of your razor.
WHEN DO YOU SHAVE
If you shave in the morning you are more than likely in a rush.A cartridge razor is quick and easy to use while a safety razor or a
straight razor takes more time and concentration.
As always the cost plays a part in deciding the best razor for you.Costs also vary a lot so you have to decide if you want something
to invest in now for the future or consider a low cost alternative that you pay out on a weekly basis.
I hope this has helped in you coming to your decision of which is the best razor for you.
