The Safety Razor from Baxter of California is a chrome plated traditional safety razor. The custom Double Edge Safety Razor (also called a DE Blade or Safety Razor) is presented with serious wet shavers in mind. DE blades are commonly known as the blade your father or grandfather used.
The safety razor was first introduced in the late 18th century as a safer alternative to a cut throat blade. Today, classic style wet shaving is making a resurgence.
The blade is packaged in a matte black gift box, with a pack of starter blades and an instructional card.
A safety razor can provide a close and comfortable shave, but works a little different from modern cartridge razors. Safety razors do not have a pivoting head, so use a different technique to avoid nicks and cuts. Try shorter, straight strokes, avoiding ‘turns’. Use light pressure and strive for a 30-degree handle angle relative to the skin. Go slow, taking your time will pay off in terms of comfort and closeness. To achieve a closer shave, stretch the skin in those hard to shave areas, like under the nose and jaw line. Prone to razor bumps? Shave in the direction of the hair growth. While this will not provide the closest shave, it will cause less shaving irritation and ingrown hair. Your safety razor is ideal for those who are prone to shaving bumps!
