How to Use:
These razors have a butterfly door mechanism for changing blades which is activated by twisting the knob at the bottom of the razor.
When open, you can easily place the blade onto the razor and tighten the know to hold it safely in place. To hold the blades you can hold onto the non-sharp tabs at each end of the blade. We choose to use Astra or Shark double edge blades which are triple chrome plated for superior shaving and long-lasting sharpness.
When you need to replace the blade, you can collect them in a specially designed recycling tin, or collect in an old stainless steel can which you close to contain the blades.
