Single Edge variations

Single Edge variations

Postby dini » Wed Jul 06, 2016 9:56 am

I am keen to further save money ( :lol: ) on my wet shaving journey by getting a single edge razor .

Besides the beluga mentioned a page back does any other manufacturer use the method of snapping a DE blade in half ?

The Rocnel also uses DE blades snapped in half.

Why not just get a Schick Injector or GEM / Ever-Ready - RVT has the blades for them.

Here is a nice single edge. Would not mind owning one. Build to last. Above the tie SE1. Nice broad cutting edge.

Very good pricing compared with some of the other Stainless Steel SE offerings in the market.

Also checkout this one form Colonial razors. This has been getting some very good reviews. Also uses the Feather / Kai blades.

It's an aluminium build (Similar to the standard Razors) but Single Edge.

I heard Rocnel ran into problems after Paypal recently suspended all Turkish accounts. I think they are trying to get things back on track using a subsidiary company.

I've watched one review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AUfYaJqnN8 I'm steering clear, guess a single review is not the best decision maker, but having to struggle with payment, intl shipping to possibly get something I'll never use - nah, no thanks
