What it is: A perfect razor for men who want to start shaving the traditional way.What it does: With one blade, a straight razor provides the skin with less irritation while also shaving closer than most modern blade razors.How to use: Lift the metal catch at the end of the razor and separate the two metal sections. Safely snap a double-edge razor blade in half and fit over the two raised bumps on the lower metal section. Place the higher metal section on top and squeeze together. Close the catch over the two metal sections and you're all set to shave. Remove the blade after shaving, or rinse if you're going to re-use it. Dry the razor down and store in a dry environment.
