Frequently Asked Questions

I'm New To Safety Razors

I'm a beginner, which safety razor is right for me?
We recommend getting a razor with a classic head (as opposed to an open comb, slant, or TTO/butterfly) with a handle style that you prefer. Our most recommended safety razor for beginners is the Merkur 34C which features a shorter, lighter handle.

If you are switching from cartridge style razors, we suggest a heavier, longer handle razor such as the Merkur 38C.

Should I get an Adjustable Safety Razor?
We do not generally recommend adjustable safety razors for beginners. This is due to the extra maintenance that is required to keep an adjustable razor in good condition. Because of all the moving parts involved, it is important to give the entire razor proper cleanings (aside from just the normal soap scum cleaning, you will have to disassemble the whole razor for thorough cleanings). Besides the maintenance, adjustable razors are great if you require the extra settings (mild to aggressive) to shave.
Which Blades Should I Purchase With My Razor?
This is completely up to you. We recommend that you try out as many brands of razor blades as you can to find which works best for your skin type and shaving angle. In addition, just because Blade A gives you the absolute best shave in Razor A, it won't necessarily give you the same results in Razor B. Try picking out a Double Edge Razor Blade Sampler Pack to find out which ones work for you.

Note: it may be important to try blades more than once even if you were unhappy with the first result - everyone has a bad day :)

I'm New To Straight Razos

Which Straight Razor Is Right For Me?
If this is your first straight razor, we'll recommend a 5/8" half hollow from Dovo. 5/8" indicates the blades width while half hollow notes the grind. Half hollow blades are more flexible, allowing more room for learning as it decreases the likelihood of cutting yourself. This particular razor also features low maintenance celluloid scales (handle).
