Investing in high quality and durable razor with replaceable and reusable multiple cartridge or double-edged stainless steel razor blades can be worthwhile and cost saving provided that the shave effectiveness lifespan of the razor blades is well maintained. After each shave the shave effectiveness for a blade is diminished due to the deposition of tiny hair particles, oil from the skin and dead skin cells on the blade’s edge during the shaving activity. This would normally happen even with normal after-shave rinse of the blade therefore leading to blade dullness resulting in subsequently very poor shaves.
After every shave, in order to ensure that blade-dulling depositions are effectively removed to restore the sharpness and shave effectiveness of the blade, a proper blade rinsing method will be required. It is worth considering investing in a blade rinsing and sharpening tool like the razorpit. It is claimed to prolong the lifespan of the blade by ten times, that is, more than a hundred shaves more or for several more months. The razorpit is known to be compatible with most popular razors in the market like Gillette Mach 3, Gillette Mach 3 Turbo, Gillette Mach 3 Power, Gillette Mach 3 Power Turbo, Gillette Fusion, Gillette Fusion Power, Gillette Fusion Stealth, Gillette Venus, Gillette Venus Devine, Gillette Vibrance, Wilkinson and a long list of other brands and models. It is also small enough to travel with.
As with every man-made product, the razorpit has its pros and cons. For the pros; you will get well cleaned and sharper razor blades, while the cons include you having to use some of your shaving foam on the tool during rinsing. In every sense of it, over a long period of shaving there is cost saving to be had in the use of the razorpit.
