Much like the utterly manly straight razor, the Shavette provides the ultimate close shave, but with replaceable blades just like a safety razor, you don’t have to worry about stropping and sharpening for optimum results. Featuring the distinctive Bluebeards logo on the handle, the metal blade holder is also laser-etched with the iconic Bluebeards skull, and the razor itself comes complete with a handy plastic slip-case.
This Shavette uses standard double-edge razor blades. Each blade must be snapped in half prior to insertion into the holder a quick and simple process. 1.) With the blade still in its wrapping, carefully bend lengthways until the blade snaps. Remove wrapper and place to one side. 2.) Open the top hinged cover of the Shavette until it is pulled back completely. 3.) Split the blade holder so that the Shavette is now fanned out into 3 parts. 4.) Carefully take one half of the snapped blade and place in line with the location pins. 5.) Carefully close the other side of the blade holder over the blade until the pins go into the holes. If the blade moves slightly at this point then push lightly back into position (but don’t use your fingers to do so as it is going to be sharp). Push the hinged cover back over the blade holder. A small portion of the edge of the blade should now be showing evenly. 6.) Congratulations! You are now ready to commence.
