The Vital Shaving Lesson That Men Often Forget
“How To Pick A Razor”

Criteria 1: Does it give you a close shave?

If it doesn’t give you a silky smooth shave then you just wasted your time.

Criteria 2: Does it cause you irritation?

If it gives you burns and bumps then throw it out.

Criteria 3: How long does it take to learn?

The point of shaving is to look good, so if it takes months of you getting nicks to master it, then it’s probably not worth it.

Do You Have The Right Razor?

All razors are designed to cut hair, but only a few are designed to preserve your skin.

Here’s a quick rundown on how your razor functions.

The Multi-Blade Razor

The multi-blade razors are great for a close shave and they take zero time to learn, but they’re really harsh on your skin.

Dr. Olenka Speaker, a dermatologist from the Center of Dermatology says they’ll give you razor bumps. That’s because they shave by each blade pulling your hair out of your skin until the last one cuts it beneath the surface. This is what ultimately causes inflammation and then razor bumps. Take a look:

The Electric Razor

The electric razor is another razor that has zero learning curve, but it won’t get you a close shave. And although many people think it’s great for your skin, Dr. Speaker says it’s not. The fast moving blades often leave your hairs with jagged knife-like edges. So if your hair happens to curl, it’ll be easy for it to re-enter your skin and cause razor bumps.

The Safety Razor

If you want to avoid irritation and get a close shave, then the safety razor is an option.

However, there’s a pretty steep learning curve that takes most men months to learn. It requires you to hold the razor at a certain angle in order to keep from nicking yourself. The rounded head may looks cool, but a face full of scabs does not.

So Which Is The Right Razor For Your Skin?

The right razor is one that will give you a close and safe shave without the stress. The right razor does the work for you - so you can enjoy the shave and never worry about the angle…. That's why more than $1,000,000 and 12,000 man hours have been put in to designing the OneBlade Razor.

Unlike multi-blade razors, it has a sharp single blade that allows you to shave right on the surface of your skin, rather than beneath it. That means zero bumps, zero burns and zero ingrown hairs.

But what really makes this razor superior is its pivoting head and front guide. Unlike the stiff round heads on safety razors, the OneBlade allows you to always follow the curves of your face at a safe angle, so you'll minimize your chance of cutting yourself.

To make things simple, you'll always get a great shave using a razor that’s designed for your hair and skin.

So if you're ready to begin your journey to a smooth shave and healthy skin, then I'd suggest that you join the rest of us fellas by starting off with the OneBlade CORE below.

OUR TOP 5 MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is OneBlade better than my current razor?

While we certainly believe we’ve created the ultimate tool for the ultimate shaving experience, that’s one subjective question. What we can say here is that if you’ve ever suffered from any type of irritation from shaving – whether that’s ingrown hairs, redness, bumps, or nicks – OneBlade will make all that disappear. You can find out why here . And, if you’ve ever found yourself wishing for a shave you can actually enjoy (not an oxymoron), an eco-friendly tool that’ll last you forever (and actually save you money), or a handsome addition to your bathroom, give OneBlade a try. You have nothing to lose. But seriously, don’t take our word for it. 97% of men who have made the switch to OneBlade swear by it. So, listen to them. And give it a try. We’ll be here to help.

How do I shave with OneBlade?

Start here: https://www.onebladeshave.com/pages/how-to-shave. If you're new to single blade shaving, stick with it. Give your skin and your technique time to adjust - you won't be sorry. If you have any questions, we're always here to help. Just email us at support@onebladeshave.com.

What Makes Your Blades So Good?

Based in Japan, Feather has been around for 80 years. They basically do one thing: Make the world's best blades for shaving and surgical equipment. All of these blades are made with super-high-quality Japanese steel. They have a proprietary finishing process that leaves their blades with a perfect leading edge - the best we found in all of our research. As for the FHS-10 model, these blades specifically are made of high-carbon stainless steel and coated in platinum. They're also 0.23mm thick, making them nearly twice as thick as the average double edge safety razor blade. What this all translates to is an ultra-sharp yet smooth and comfortable blade.

What Is your return policy?

We love the shave products that we've made and we think you will too. If, after 5-8 shaves, you find that you're unhappy for any reason, just let us know so that we can help you return your products within 60 days of delivery for a full refund, less return shipping. Note that if you purchase an engraved OneBlade GENESIS razor as part of a special promotion, these are final sale.

Its helpful to remember it does take some time to adjust to a new shave system. Experimenting with the angle and pivot should help you find the perfect approach for your perfect shave.
