Why Single Blade Shaving

WHAT THE **** IS SINGLE BLADE SHAVING?
Good question. If you're seeing this, you've probably been using a cartridge or an electric razor to shave and you're wondering what makes a single blade different. Well If you'll take a minute to read through this page, we'll explain. Single blade shaving is very comparable to using a cartridge, just think one blade instead of 4-5... For most men, it will provide a closer, more comfortable shave. We believe that it can open up a whole new world of experience and can solve a lot of the common issues that plague cartridge and electric users.
LESS SHAVING IRRITATION
This is the most common reason most men switch to single blade shaving. Multi blade cartridges tend to cut the hair below the skin line which usually leads to ingrown hairs, you're also bringing several blades into contact with your skin at the same time which leads to razor burn and irritation. You're not supposed to have red bumps after you shave. With single blade shaving, you have one blade. This drastically reduces the likelihood of razor burn as well as assuring the hair is cut at the skin level therefore eliminating ingrown hairs.
This is another big one. Due to higher production costs and marketing, multi blade cartridges cost (on average) 2-4 dollars per cartridge. This leads to many people overusing their blades which is terrible for your skin. "Big Shave" gets you in the door with a snazzy looking, cheap, plastic razor handle, then make the real money off of the cartridge refills. And oh yeah... they suck. A single blade on the other hand costs around 50 cents per blade and each blade lasts for the same number of shaves. Not to mention the razor itself can last for decades.
The average American man spends close to 3,000 hours of his life shaving. We don't think it should be painful or boring. Using a single blade razor takes the mind numbing grind of shaving and turns it into something truly enjoyable. There's also no tugging and pulling or constantly banging your razor to get hairs out of your blades. There's nothing quite like a good single blade shave and once you try it, we're confident that you'll agree with us.

WHAT'S THE CATCH
Single blade shaving is a skill and like most skills, it can take a little time to learn. You may have a couple of minor nicks and cuts during this process but don't worry, we promise it'll be worth it. It can also take a bit longer than cartridges in the beginning, however, this is not the case after you get used to the differences.
