Stainless steel safety razor
Shaving with our all-metal, double-edged safety razor is easy because the weight of the handle and guard do the cutting… you don’t drag the razor across your skin like one does when using a plastic disposable or cartridge-style shaver. This means fewer nicks and cuts, and far less irritation. Shaving can be an enjoyable experience!
Why use a safety razor?
Imagine shaving with the Albatross razor, feeling the weight of the stainless steel in your hand, knowing that you are not only getting the closest, smoothest shave possible, but also helping prevent billions of plastic razors from being thrown out each year. Imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel from your smooth skin and guilt-free conscience.
Over 2 billion disposable plastic razors are thrown out each year in the U.S. alone. That’s enough to wrap around the Earth end-to-end 6 times! By eliminating plastic from the shaving equation we hope to prevent the creation of unnecessary plastic waste and the pollution associated with it. We are immensely excited about this campaign because the experience of using a safety razor is SO MUCH BETTER than when one uses a disposable. This fact allows us to genuinely believe that we can prevent a hell of a lot of single use plastics from messing up our planet.
Tips for first timers:
Albatross recommend the following…
First, make sure you are using a good lubricating shaving cream or soap. This is Critical to ensuring the blade can glide smoothly over your skin
Hold the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin
Do not apply much pressure or pull too hard; the weight of the razor itself is acting on the blade and that is generally sufficient for a great, close shave
Use short strokes, especially in the beginning
Rinse the blade often as you go
For an excessively excellent shave, try shaving after a shower or steam bath. The heat, water, and steam help to soften the hair for an even better shave. Note, this is not necessary though
