A very popular and affordable safety razor that gives a great, comfortable shave. Sexy and sleek the closer shave and less irritation one gets is loved by men and women alike. On top of that, this razor will last you for years to come and save you hundreds of rands each year.
Classic wet shaving is incredibly environmentally friendly. Plastic razors come with plastic guards and are wrapped in another layer of plastic. That’s a whole lot of plastic and completely unnecessary! Switch to a safety razor, where blades are fully recyclable, biodegrades quicker and have no plastic parts.
Safety razors can be intimidating at first, but they’re called a safety razor for a reason. It has a protective guard between the blade and the skin. The ladies at Shop Zero™ have all personally experienced getting less nicks while using safety razors instead of “normal” plastic razors. Shaving your legs and bikini zone with a safety razor is easy and you will shave confidently in no time. If you’re feeling a bit nervous, this guide may be helpful as well as this video here.
This 3-piece safety razor consists of a handle, the top and the base. Please note: Razor blade not included. Get your 5-pack blades here. Men especially love shaving their beards with our Rockwell Razors 5-pack blades available for purchase here.
We highly recommend investing in one of our shaving brushes and our shaving soap. It is much more environmentally friendly than shaving foam and will give you an even better shave. If you’re looking to treat either yourself or looking for a great gift, take a look at our shaving soap and multi stand here.
Twist off the handle by holding the short sides of the razor’s head. This will separate your safety razor into three pieces. Sandwich the blade between the two plates and then screw the handle back into its place. Now you’re ready to shave!
Take short strokes and do not apply too much pressure against your skin. Keep the blade at a 30-degree angle to enjoy a great close shave. The head of your metal razor doesn’t bend like a plastic razor so ensure that you keep your grip light and flexible.
Remove the blade after each shave, thoroughly rinse your safety razor and wipe down with a towel.
Although the blades are recyclable placing them in your recycling can be dangerous. We recommend keeping a glass jar or any other container you can upcycle in the bathroom. Build your own blade bank or purchase one here. Read more about the disposal of razor blades here.
