We get so many questions about how to put together/change the blade of our safety razors and I’ve been meaning to explain it all for ages but my TODO list never gets shorter ***sigh*** and for some reason I’ve been putting it off. Well no longer. Here it is, short and sweet because in fact, it’s frightfully easy! My insanely talented friend Sarah Campbell did up these illustrations and my insanely talented husband shot a quick video.
HOW TO PUT TOGETHER/CHANGE THE BLADE OF YOUR SAFETY RAZOR
This is so simple, yet for those who’ve never done it, not immediately obvious. Your solid brass razor is comprised of three pieces to which you’ll add a fourth (the blade). I like to set up/change the blade of my razor before I hop into the shower or bath, dry hands make the whole process easier.
Take hold of your razor in one hand, then grip the head of the razor in the other. Be sure to pinch from the top and bottom in order to avoid the blade which protrudes from the sides. Unscrew the handle and gently lay the pieces on whichever surface you’re working on. I tend to lay out a small towel so that the handle doesn’t roll away (painfully obvious I know, but I honestly had it roll off the counter twice before I thought of it).
