Alternative to the Bump Fighter


It's true, the Bump Fighter razor has been discontinued. And understandably, a lot of guys who have been shaving with it for their entire lives are worried. The Bump Fighter was specifically designed to address the skin irritation caused from shaving for men of color.

When we heard it was discontinued and guys were trying to find a suitable replacement, we reached out to our friend and shaving expert Mark Herro, aka @Mantic59 and the man behind Sharpologist, to weigh in on whether OneBlade could be that replacement.

You can read his post on the top options for those looking for an alternative to the Bump Fighter here. But to make a long story short, we top the list! Why? As Mark breaks it down, here are the main characteristics of the Bump Fighter:

  • Single Edge Blade
  • Pivoted Head
  • Mild Shave

Sound familiar? We thought so too. If we break down the OneBlade Core Razor's key characteristics, we see a lot of similarities:

  • Single Edge Blade
  • Pivoted Head
  • Mild Shave

In form and function the OneBlade Core Razor shares the same intention as the Bump Fighter: it is virtually guaranteed to eliminate nicks, bumps, and irritation from shaving. For good.

For those who may not be familiar with the OneBlade story, here's a quick refresher. A few years ago we set out to revolutionize the experience of shaving. We believed that there had to be a better way - even an enjoyable way - to shave. So we gathered the best design minds in the world, spent two years developing more than 1,000 prototypes, and at last we were able to bring the barbershop experience home.

The key to our design is the patented pivoting head, which enables the easy handling of a cartridge razor that a lot of guys are used to. The pivot ensures that the right angle is always maintained while shaving with a single blade. The single blade is the key to preventing irritation as it cuts the hair on the surface of the skin and not beneath it. These two elements together mean you get the best of both worlds: the close, irritation-free shave of a safety razor and the easy handling of a cartridge.

We know it's not always easy to try new things, and if you've been a loyal Bump Fighter user your entire life this can be a daunting change. But there are a few other things you should consider:

  • 96% percent of guys who make the switch to OneBlade never look back
  • Try the razor for 60 days - if you're not happy with it, send it back for a full refund
  • Each OneBlade razor is backed by a forever warranty so you can pass it on to your son, his son, and his son after that
