The Perfect Shave – Part III
During the winter of 1904, a man named King C. Gillette was granted a patent for a “Safety” Razor — a razor with a safe, inexpensive, and disposable blade. It took six years for Gillette’s idea to evolve, but with time, the brand became a success. Shortly after, the U.S. Government began issuing the safety razors to the entire armed forces and Gillette became a household name.
To this day, Gillette has remained on top of the shaving industry, but the company has since turned its attention to multi-blade razors. While convenient, many people are still in search of that “classic” shave that only a safety razor can provide. After all, this old-school tradition is still the way to go, as safety razors are not only cheaper, but better for your skin as well. The benefits of shaving with a safety razor include reduction of skin irritation, shave bumps, and ingrown hairs, most of which are caused by cartridge or electric razors. The main reason is that, with a safety razor, you only have one blade against your skin at any time rather than five. Another benefit of using one blade — the price! Depending on your preferred brand, some people can save up to $3,000 over the course of 10 years. Talk about a bargain!
