Greener, Cheaper, Better Shaving

Shaving Tips | How to shave with a double-edge safety razor


To load blade in a butterfly style handle:  

Twist the bottom of the shaver handle to open the wings of the blade holder.  Simply place a blade (be careful it's sharp!) on the platform and twist the bottom in the opposite direction to tighten the blade holder wings over the blade. You're all set to go!

To load blade in a 3-piece style handle:   Unscrew the handle from the two blade holding plates.  Place blade between the blade holding plates and screw in handle.  You're ready to shave!

To Shave: Wet beard with warm water.  Lather shaving cream onto face [a brush will greatly help create a better lather and to lift facial hair].  Hold blade at a 30 degree angle and let the weight of the handle do the work.  That is, do not pull the razor across your face like you would with a plastic disposable razor.  Use short strokes, about 2 inches long, especially in the beginning of your shave.  Finish with after shave ointment or lotion.
