If you’re still using expensive cartridge razors and getting ripped off with each purchase, or worse you’re still using disposables, it’s time to give them up and learn to use a safety razor razor. This video from the The Art of Manliness will show you how.
Granted, we’ve shown you how to use a safety razor before, but this guide is a little easier to follow, and walks you through everything you need from start to finish, from shaving soap to a good shaving brush, and of course, the razor blades and the razor itself.
After all, shaving with a classic safety razor like this not only saves you a ton of money (you’ll never have to buy an 8-pack of marked up cartridges for $ 20 when you can get a 10-pack of safety razors for $ 5), but it also leads to better, more consistent, more enjoyable shaves. If you feel like shaving is a chore that has to be done, using a safety razor like this can make it a bit more fun and luxurious.
If you’re even more daring, we’ve shown you how to use a straight razor, so you could always go that route as well, or if you’re just not ready to give up cartridge razors, there’s always Dollar Shave Club.
