BLADE & SAFETY RAZOR QUESTIONS
The length of time a blade lasts all depends on how much you care for the blades, how often you use your razor, the length of your hair, and how your store the safety razor and blades.
If you're shaving daily on a small-medium surface area (face, legs or underarms), we find Shark blades last up to 10 days before losing their edge. That means one pack of Shark blades (5 in each pack) will last you nearly two months.
It's important to wipe down the blade after use and store your razor in a dry place. Please don't leave it in the bathroom, as moisture fills the room when you have a bath or shower. This will blunt the blade quicker.
Every one of our plastic-free and eco-friendly safety razors come with blades, so you won't need to purchase them for a while. If you need to restock, we sell replacement double-edged bladesin packs of 3 or 5, which amounts to 15 or 25 blades.
Our plastic-free safety razors take all double-edged blades. We currently supply Shark blades, which are high-quality double-edged blades.
With a little care and maintenance, your safety razor could last you a lifetime. To ensure the longevity of your razor, it's important to wipe the razor down after use and store it in a dry place away from water and moisture. It's best to keep it out of the bathroom or in a cupboard that's tightly sealed when closed.
We provide a hessian travel bag with many of our razors, as it's robust and spacious enough to carry your razor, blades and other small shaving accessories. Place the razor head down into the hessian bag when storing. 25 blades.
Once you're finished with your old double-edged blades, it's important to store them in a safe place like a blade bank. This is usually a metal tin with a small hole in the top, which safely stores your used blades.
When you want to recycle your blades, take your blade bank to your local recycling centre and empty them into the scrap metal section. Please double check that your local recycling centre does recycle blades before you go. Most centres in the UK do.
