While doing this, the razor also gives you a much closer shave with much less razor burn or skin irritations.
- Will a safety razor prevent from rash/cuts after shaving? - Yes, the safety razor can help prevent this. Generally, safety razors are smother for the skin. However, this also depends on other factors, such as how well you prepare your skin.

- How often does the blade need to be replaced? - This depends from person to person. Whenever the blade is not sharp enough to cut your hair effortlessly anymore, you should consider re-placing it.

I am very pleased with this razor. It looks and feels great quality. It was a little slow going at first, trying to get a feel for the technique and juggling the shaving foam pot and brush but I think I’ll get much faster with practice.
Such a good razor , does a good close shave. It can be a little tricky on the knees so just go slow and be patient. Just make sure to dry it before storing it away.
This arrived this morning and I have just had my first shave with it. It's wonderfully effective, easy to use (even if you're a bit nervous about it!) and very beautiful quality. So so pleased to add this to my zero-waste routine!
My closest shave for many many years! Feels pretty cool too and no more Bics!
I am very pleased with this product. It gave the closest shave without irritation. I am looking forward to many years of good service. Arrived promptly and plastic free with a lovely delivery note.
