How to use
When shaving with a classic razor, it’s important you hold the razor at around a 25-30 degree angle, ideally you want the razor to be angled so that the blade is actually ‘cutting’ the hair, not scraping it or the skin. It can take a little getting used to if you have previously been used to the ‘cartridge’ or ‘disposable’ type razors before, but take it real easy to begin with, be very light and gentle with the razor application and you’ll soon master the art of shaving with a rigid head type razor like these ones.
With the classic type razor, there is no need to press the blades into the skin excessively, allow the blade to run over your skin instead and use smooth strokes, allowing the weight of the razor to do the work. Ideally, you should not shave ‘against the grain’ as this can cause irritation at best and ingrowing hairs at worse, instead shave with the growth of the hair and if you must shave ‘against the grain’ always re-apply sufficient lather or cream.
For the ladies, especially the legs, it’s common to have to shave against the grain, in this case always apply sufficient lather/cream and work very smoothly and gently, again applying the razor at a 25-30 degree angle whilst shaving. Again, if you have never used a classic style razor before it may take a few times to get comfortable with it, but the benefits for both men and women are obvious, a better shave, a more economical shave and a great deal less waste than using disposable or cartridge style blade.
