Here’s our selection of razors that any shaving lover needs to own
A true classic shaving lover usually has more than one razor in his collection. There are many different kinds of razors: open comb, close comb, double-edged, single-edged… The options and combinations are many and traditional shaving experts choose one or another depending on the kind of skin or beard or their needs at a particular moment. We don’t always have the same beard length, so we won’t always need the same razor. If you want to learn some more about the different models, you can read this post about how to choose a razor —but, for the time being, we’re going to tell you which are the five essential razors in any good collection. Let’s begin!
Rockwell 6S Classic Safety Razor Matte Stainless Steel
The first razor in our list is the Rockwell 6S Classic Safety Razor Matte Stainless Steel, an original space-grade stainless-steel model with a feature that distinguishes it from the rest of razors with this classic, beautiful design: it’s matte! The best part about this razor is that it has three reversible plates that you can adjust for different kinds of skin and beards. There are 6 adjustment levels, from less to more blade exposure, so you can get a close shave whatever the length of the beard. It’s a highly precise razor, with a design that can provide the perfect angle when shaving, whichever the plate used. It’s a bit of an investment, but it is well worth it. Furthermore, it includes a box with five Rockwell razor blades.
Mühle Double Edge Safety Razor R89 Close Comb
We’re sure that there aren’t many traditional shaving aficionados who don’t own the stunning Mühle Double Edge Safety Razor R89 Close Comb. It’s incredibly precise too and has an ergonomic design with top-quality metal and chrome finish. It’s decorated with a pattern that goes way beyond aesthetics: it widely improves the grip. Besides, since it’s a closed-comb razor (that is, a model with a less exposed blade) and it has an excellent quality-price ratio, it’s perfect for beginners. If you want to take a look at other shaving products recommended to the recently arrived to the world of classic shaving, you will find them in this post about products for classic shaving beginners.
Edwin Jagger Double Edge Safety Razor Knurled
Our next recommendation, the Edwin Jagger Double Edge Safety Razor Knurled, also has a great quality-price ratio. This razor is mounted with the wonderful DE Edwin Jagger head, a closed-comb head designed by experts, and with a stunning handle: the decorative pattern, which also improves the grip, is carved with a 0.5 mm diamond laser. The elegance of this razor is obvious, but you’ll discover that it is also one of the most comfortable, safe and well-balanced in the market.
Merkur Progess Adjustable Safety Razor Long Handle
If you already have one of the previous classic designs with an engraved handle in your collection and you’re looking for something different, you will love the Merkur Progess Adjustable Safety Razor Long Handle. Contrary to the others, it has a smooth but anti-slip design. It’s made with Solingen steel and the handle is a bit longer than usual, so it’s ideal for those who would like some mm more in their razors. It’s mounted with a closed-comb head, but there are five different positions, so the blade is more or less exposed, depending on the length of the beard. An essential piece in any good collection.
Razorock Hawk Electric Blue Anodized Safety Razor
We’re going to end this list in a colourful way: the Razorock Hawk Electric Blue Anodized Safety Razor, a super modern and bright model which is also very easy to use. The assembling is quick and easy and so is using it, thanks to how light the razor is —it weighs just 37 grams! The electric blue handle is anti-slip and has a top-quality anodized steel finish. It uses single-edge blades. The Razorock razors in different colours are among the 2020 best-seller products of Gifts&Care.
