Is a straight razor better than a safety razor?2019-08-22T14:55:00+00:00

That depends! If you’re in a barber getting a shave off a professional barber then yes, a straight razor will give an incredibly close shave. If you’re at home and need to shave before work – you won’t have time to use a straight razor but you’ll get a great shave with a safety razor in 10 minutes.

Is Shaving with a Safety Razor better?2019-08-22T14:11:34+00:00

Shaving with a Safety Razor helps to reduce skin irritation, shave bumps, and ingrown hairs that are common with cartridge or electric razors. The main reason is that with a safety razor you only have one blade against your skin at any time as opposed to several and the blade will cut the hair at the level of skin – not below In short – yes, shaving with a Safety Razor is better.
