Best Manual Razors for Men – The Top 3 of 2017 Revealed

Best Manual Razors for Men - The Top 3 of 2017 RevealedHave you got the best a man can get or are you looking for something even better? Learning to shave in the 70s there were a handful of razors to choose from, and because most of us were being shown how to do it with our dad’s old faithful, we all thought Gillette was the best. Today we’re spoiled for choice which is why we’ve decided to take a look at the best manual razors for men.

As far as manual razors go, there are three options available:

  • Safety razors
  • Cartridge razors
  • Disposable razors

Each of these serves a purpose: for example, your cartridge or safety razor is the one that’s in your bathroom for everyday use while you can carry a pack of disposable ones in your travel bag for business trips or weekends away.

Safety Razors

A safety razor is the oldest, or at least the one people are most familiar with. The handle is a sturdy metal and you simply replace the razor blade when it becomes dull. Still popular, the safety razor is known to prevent unnecessary nicks and cuts, which is always a concern.

Cartridge Razors

Most men, our panel included, like using the cartridge razor. The handle is plastic, but of a good quality, and when it’s time to remove the blade you replace the entire razor head or cartridge. This type of razor is constantly evolving and every time you look there’s a new feature, or blade, added. Nowadays there is a minimum of two, all the way up to six blades, one, or more, to lift the hair, another to cut it and there’s often a lubricating strip too. In the long term, they work out fairly affordable and are known for a smooth and gentle shaving experience.

Disposable Razors

Disposable razors have their place, like man buns and full facial hair, but they’re not everyone’s thing. While they offer convenience and are inexpensive for those “ah crap I’ve left my razor at home” moments, they generally work out more expensive in the long run when compared to the other manual razors. Also, the cheaper disposable razors can leave you feeling, and looking as if you’ve been pulled through a rosebush backward.

From a ‘green’ point of view, disposable razors are becoming a big no-no because they take up so much more landfill space than small cartridges. However, the good news is a certain ‘bic’ name brand is taking the environment into consideration and looking at ways to recycle their disposable razor blades.
