May the 4th Be With You: Darth Vader, Lightshavers and Safety Razors

Happy Star Wars Day, beard nation! Although Chewbacca is in all of us, shaving is an important part of any Jedi’s training. From lightsabers to lightshavers, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about safety razors and effortless shaves so you can clean up for the summer.

While safety razors might not give you the kind of shave a lightsaber would, they are a bit more practical (and safe). So ditch the lightsabers for the lightshavers, sit back, and check out these must-have safety razors for a good, clean, effortless and injury-free shave. 

Baxter of California Safety Razor – $65.00

The safety razor was first introduced in the late 18th century as a safer alternative to a straight razor. Popular with older generations of men, this traditional-style shave is experiencing a renewed popularity with modern men who care about the craft of shaving. Custom chrome-plated Double-Edge (DE) Safety Razor was created with serious wet shavers in mind. It helps reduce ingrown hairs and razor burn, and will last you for years to come. The blade comes packaged in a black gift box and is accompanied with a pack of starter blades and an instructional card.

“Very impressed
Replaced an old inexpensive safety razor with this. Love the weight and finish. One of the cleanest, closest, most comfortable shaves I have ever had.” – Thanks George C.

Boker Classic Safety Razor – $33.95

Answering frequent customer requests, this classic shaving razor is now part of the Boker product line. Includes a traditional razor blade, and is easy to clean. Many customers still swear by this proven method. Chromed full metal construction. 3.75 inches in length.

Merkur Double Edge Safety Razor 34C – $49.50

A well known Merkur classic. Chrome finish with knurled handle designed for a thicker more maneuverable grip. A popular first choice for beginners, but a fan favorite for life.

“Great razor

Smooth mild shave with little effort, a must have for all.” Thanks Michael.

Muhle Twist Traditional Closed Comb Safety Razor – $100.00

The Razorhead – Classic blade:
Even if the open blade does demand a little respect at first: After a brief familiarization period, and guided by a steady hand, it produces a very close shave and a lasting result. Unlike modern blade systems, the head of the safety razor does not move.

The Material – Chrome:
Corrosion-resistant, long-lasting with luxurious, alluring luster.

The Muhle safety razor with precision mechanics and highly functional design: The cap of the razor can be released with a simple twist of the small wheel at the end of the handle. The closed comb remains firmly attached to the handle. Used blades can then be removed safely and replaced with new ones. The R89 TWIST will be favored by all wet shavers who prefer the slightly heavier model and a more gently attuned safety razor. This model also fits our RHM SR and RHM SR SET.

“Outstanding Quality
Purchased this razor to keep at my vacation home. I’m absolutely amazed at how smoothly and effortlessly it shaves my face! I hate to use the word “perfect” but that is exactly how I’d describe this razor.” – Thanks Rich.  


*Be careful about razor burn (we heard that’s what happened to Darth Vader), and make sure you are taking care of your razors properly, Jedis!
