How do you change razor blades?
When changing the blades, the safety razor should be facing downwards and be laid onto the table head first. In the next step, remove the handle, take off the lower part of the razor head, grab the blade with both thumb and index finger at the protruding end, then remove it and insert a new one.
Which way does the blade go on a safety razor?
Doesn’t matter at all how you orient your blade. There’s no top or bottom, left or right. All sides are the same as long as the edges are sticking out the right sides of the razor. As for tightening, just screw it down until it’s snug enough that it doesn’t wobble and you’re fine.
How long does a straight razor last?
Most straight razor shaves last 2 days. On top of that, you are running a blade across skinless, thus decreasing chances for cuts, missed patches, and irritation.
Does a straight razor give a better shave?
Straight razors are great. The shave’s not necessarily closer, but it’s smoother and lasts longer. Shave at the sink, not in the shower, and keep a hot towel ready. Start with a pre-shave oil or cream, and apply it with a badger hair brush to pull the hair away from the face.
What are the benefits of straight razor shaving?

Can you straight razor shave yourself?
To shave with a straight razor is to indulge in luxury. But with all great things, it takes technique, preparation, and patience. However, you can give yourself this close of a shave at home, too—if you’re patient enough to learn the process, and confident enough to wield such a top-shelf blade.
