Forget about cheap, environmentally unfriendly plastic disposable razors. Old style double edge safety razors are growing in popularity as more men discover the super-smooth, luxurious, wet shave provided by these classic grooming tools. Safety razors are made of a sturdy handle, usually made of metal, topped by a super thin, double edged blade. The blade is protected by a guard that minimizes the risk of cuts and nicks, thus making them safer than their predecessor, the straight razor.
Due to the wide variety of safety razors available, buyers should consider everything from the look and style to the size, weight and features of a good safety razor. The weight, shape and size of the razor's handle have a big impact on your shaving experience. Try to choose a razor that feels right and is easy to control. This can be a bit of a trial and error process until you find what what works best.
