This razor is a great choice for people that are coming to classic shaving from cartridges. It’s very mild, thus sharply reducing nicks while learning the skills needed to shave with a safety razor. It has a long handle, and a great price.
Good razor for beginners
The Butterfly is a very good razor for beginners. It's aggressive enough to give you a good shave, but mild enough to forgive while you learn proper technique. And the economy price makes it so you don't have to spend a ton of money before you decide if single blade shaving is for you. Also, Pete at Hendrix Classics & Co. can set you up with some really good quality products for a fair and honest price. 5/5 stars
made the switch from disposable (haven't looked back)
I am so glad I found Hendrix Classics and made the switch from disposable plastic razors to the Butterfly!!!! As someone who had never used a metal safety razor before, I will say there is definitely a learning curve. It takes a very light touch compared to plastic razors and you have to learn the right angle to hold the razor. That said, it took me about 3-5 days to hone the skill, and I'm now finding that I am actually having less razor burn and skin irritation than I did with my old razors. I was tired with the women's razor industry (how much plastic razors cost, the waste, the marketing, etc) and I love knowing that I am supporting a small business with such excellent customer care and commitment to producing less waste. If you are a woman thinking about making the switch, don't be intimidated. Do it!!
