DE Safety Razors 2

Double Edge Safety Razors... a brief overview

Double Edge Safety Razors?

The Double Edged Safety Razor has been with us in one form or another since the turn of the 20th century and is basically a device which holds a two sided disposable razor blade for shaving.

DE Safety Razors are undergoing something of a renaissance at the moment as new generations of razor users are discovering the advantages of the long-ago perfected design of the Double Edged Safety Razor.

These often include:

A better quality of shave with less discomfort.

Much cheaper running costs due to the much lower cost of DE blades when compared to the modern cartridge razors.

Greater control over your shave as there is a huge variety of soap, brushes, razors and razor blades available, each with their own individual characteristics.

Some razors are made to last. Supremely well built and beautiful machines!

My Personal DE Razor History

Like many young men today I could never find the "Satisfactory Shave."
I tried everything from electric shaving with a very expensive Philips to the plastic-fantastic throwaways everyone uses now.
I accepted razor burn and the resultant fallout as necessary facts of life.
My (male grooming) world was shattered when I finally held in my hands an old Gillette Slim Adjustable Double Edged Safety Razor.
After much research I settled on this lovely relic of a bygone era.
From the first shave with this lovingly crafted device I'm pleased to say I was hooked.
NO RAZOR BURN! NO DISCOMFORT! NO PROBLEMS!
Since that time I have accumulated a fairly hefty collection of DE safety razors, usually Gillette, and have honed my bargain safety razor finding skills.
This website is the result.
The BEST deals are often on Ebay but are very hard (and time consuming!) to uncover. This is likely what makes them the BEST deals...
Razorcollector.com contains special search algorithms to help you find those vintage razor bargains that would usually pass you by.

    [...] DE razors contains special search algorithms that will help you find those bargain vintage razors that will usually goinf too soon! Besides vintage double edge safety razors you’ll find single edge razors and straight razors listed, basically precisely what you, the possible (or already addicted!) razor collector / fanatic could wish for. The best thing about collecting old razors is they are compact, very easy to neat and are generally well made (there will always be budget versions…), perhaps over a par with vintage watches and with all machined metal construction. Usually they may be in relation to one of two designs – three piece and TTO (twist-to-open) Three piece razors screw together and TTO razors use a knob that is twisted to open up the two cantilever doors that hold inside the blade. Both designs have advantages and disadvantages. [...]
