Replacement double edge razor blades blades are super cheap and can be bought online (I stock some) or in most supermarkets. All you need is one razor sharp blade to achieve a perfect shave, commercial razors now have multiple blades integrated in the cartridge but these can irritate the skin and favour ingrown hair.
This razor has been designed so it's easy to use and the closed comb makes it less aggressive than an open comb. Shaving with the eco-friendly razor is different from a cartridge razor and requires a gentler touch and a little more time. To help you learn how best to use it there is a complete and illustrated online user manual included.
In the box you will find 1 Bambaw safety razor, 1 Astra razor blade and an in-depth digital user manual.

Stainless Steel Double-edged Safety Razor with stand, silver - Bambaw
Takes some time to get used to - This is a great and easy swap but you need to take more time over a shave and be more mindful and gentle, letting the razor do the work and guiding it rather than dragging it heavily across your skin.
I was a bit nervous of using it but I had no probelms except for a few small nicks as I got used to it. I would definitely reccomend giving the manual a quick look to understand how to get the most from it.
It does a great job,. It will save you money in the long run as replacement blades are so cheap, handles nicely and saves a huge amount of 'disposable' throwaway plastic!
Do take a look at the manual, it gives you a great overview. Make sure you have some time set aside to enjoy and do not rush this task. It's actaully pretty therapeutic. You just need to guide the razor, not push it or drag it.
When you need to change a blade, take the razor apart and insert a new blade. Do so carefully and always holding on to the short edges of the blade.
Store old blades in a sealed container in a safe place and when you have filled this up, check local metal recycling to see where you can take it. Do not throw the blades away unprotected in normal rubbish etc as this could cause harm to people and wildlife.
