ALBATROSS DOUBLE EDGE 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.
Shaving with this 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!
- All-metal, stainless steel shaver - durable, attractive, and plastic free!
- Appropriate for all your shaving needs (men and women)
- Includes 10 free high quality double-edged razor blades. For more replacement blades click here.
- The last razor you’ll ever have to buy
- Comes with hemp Albatross razor and toiletry bag
- Available in two styles: Butterfly [Twist the bottom to load blade] and 3-piece [Screw handle into blade holders to load blade]
To load blade in a 3-piece style handle: Unscrew the handle from the two blade holding plates. Place blade between the blade holding plates and screw in handle. You're ready to shave!
To Shave: Wet beard with warm water. Lather shaving cream onto face [a brush will greatly help create a better lather and to lift facial hair]. Hold blade at a 30 degree angle and let the weight of the handle do the work. That is, do not pull the razor across your face like you would with a plastic disposable razor. Use short strokes, about 2 inches long, especially in the beginning of your shave. Finish with after shave ointment or lotion.
Simply collect your used blades in the envelope they come in when you buy Albatross replacement blades. When you’ve gone through a pack of blades, seal that envelope and insert it into any other envelope at least 3.5” X 5” large (USPS minimum) and send to:
PO Box 2254
Berkeley, CA 94702
It is important for us to re-utilize the stainless steel our blades are made of at the highest level possible. We aim to recycle the steel into a potentially higher value product in terms of CO2 mitigation and energy savings than the original blades themselves over the long run. If you use non-Albatross blades, we will accept your blades too. You can store and ship your blades in a variety of containers, such as used pill bottles, a used soup can duct taped on one end, or by using a heavy weight internal envelope inserted into another envelope as is our standard procedure.
