Single Edge Blades

When you shave with a shavette or safety razor, a single edge blade is indispensable in your bathroom. These classic razors are used by all wet shaving enthusiasts and the result will be a lot smoother and neater.


What are single edge blades?

Single edge blades and a safety razor or shavette go hand in hand. You place the single edge blades in a safety razor or shavette. The razor blades contain a sharpness between 1 (the least sharp) and 5 (the sharpest). Single edge blades are always securely wrapped in paraffin paper. This paper is sterile, ensures safety and offers a longer shelf life.


Difference between single edge blades and double edge blades

In addition to single edge razor blades, there are also double edge blades . These razor blades have cutting edges on two sides instead of one. Double edge blades can be broken in half so that they can be used as a single edge blade.
