description

Metal blade (approx. 4 cm by 1 cm) that cuts on one or two sides and which is placed in a cap that is attached at right angles to a straight handle (approx. 7-10 cm). The whole can be made of metal or plastic. In the past, the blades were sharpened on a specially designed razor strop; today they are disposable blades.

Compared to the razor knife, the safety razor makes it easier to shave without cutting. [MOT]
