We always want you to receive the best shaves and work hard to ensure our products provide smooth, comfortable shaves. There are a few factors that can impact the blade's longevity including how tough and thick your hair is, how often you shave, and how the blades are rinsed. Shave prep, such as shaving gel or foam, and shaving right after a shower can soften your hair and help your blades last longer. At the end of every shave, rinse the blade thoroughly and shake off excess water before storing. Do not wipe the blade and do not tap your razor against a hard surface. If you would like to share more about your experience, please feel welcome to call us at (800) 445-5388.
