Safety Razor aficionados love of how much better shaving with a safety razor is; they get a closer shave and less maintenance. It is also often cheaper in the long run because replacement blades cost a fraction of a cartridge razor. These razor handles are hand turned from TruStone. Just twist the head of the razor and the mechanism raised the blade cover for an easy blade change. They have great weight and balance. They are a bit heavier than a cartridge style razor. Stand sold separately. Hand turned from Black and White TruStone. Black and White stone pattern. Extremely durable.
