Double-edged safety razor
As the name implies, double-edge blades have two sharp edges that cut of your whiskers. They are mounted in the razor's head so that only the sharp edges are exposed, thus providing a semblance of safety.
Easy to load and safe to use, a safety razor provides a close comfortable shave and is favoured by those just starting to have to shave. Unlike supermarket bought disposable brands, safety razors will let you experience a whole world of difference.
Double-edged razors provide and economic way to shave
The double-edge blades will give you many shaves before needing to replace them. So forget about those expensive supermarket multi-blade, disposable razors and save money using a DE razor.
Is shaving as good using double-edged blades?
The problem with those three blade supermarket razors is that they produce more nicks and cuts. The edges of the blades wear unevenly because they are made from the cheapest metal they can find. Adding one, two and now three extra blades does not give you a better shave. It is just a marketing ploy for those manufacturers to try to sell more and more expensive razors. Gentlemen who seek to get an ultimate close shave all agree that the best way to attain it is by using a razor that has a single sharp blade.
Do DE blades fit into all safety razors?
All DE blades are manufactured to respect the industry's standard sizing, so there are no worries there. The only concerns should be about the quality of the metal used to make the blades. At Trendhim we sell only high quality stainless steel double-edged shaving blades.
How about a brush and soap.
So now that you are convinced that you want to start using a single blade for your daily routine, you really must maximize the whole experience with a good shaving brush and real shaving soap, not that supermarket foam out of a can that just clumps up and sits there. A wet shave without a sharp razor, great brush and good soap is like trying to eat a steak without a knife and fork; you can do it, but it is not as satisfying. Look through our vast selection to find a shaving brush,
, some shaving soap
and a quality razor. The whole wet shaving process not only provides a very close shave, it leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
