How to make the switch to a classic razor

Classic razor

Edwin Jagger Classic Razor

Halfway between the razor and the disposable razors, classic razors are cheaper and less harmful for skin, especially the sensitive type (fewer leaves means less irritation and less ingrown hairs), but they take a little getting used to.

During your first shaves with a classic razorIt is essential that it has a safety bar, but, above all, that you take it easy and put extra concentration. Slide it over the face like the others, but loosely and always down. Some people compare the change from multiple blades to one with riding a bike for the first time without wheels, which seems to us a very successful analogy in this case.

When it comes to choosing our first classic razor, it is better opt for a fixed head. It is true that those with adjustable heads allow a more personalized shave because we can move the angle of the blade to our liking. However, until we have mastered shaving with this kind of razor, it is recommended to use fixed heads, which are simpler and safer to use.

To obtain a greater degree of control and to ensure that the correct angle is maintained while shaving, we have to pay attention to incorporating butterfly opening. This type of razor is threaded open from the base and, once the blade is attached, and the tabs are closed again, the blade is completely fixed inside. For newbies it is the most recommended, also for comfort and safety.
