What Does a Safety Razor Do? 

A safety razor is designed to deliver a close, clean shave with a sharp blade, but while keeping your skin - and your fingers - safe. Safety razors comes with a protective device in between the edge of the blade and the skin, helping to reduce the risk of shaving cuts and other shaving irritation. 

The King C. Gillette Double Edge Safety Razor is the perfect choice for men who appreciate a touch of heritage, but want to create a modern, sharp look; that’s why we’ve brought it back - the growing trend for statement beards has seen increased demand for double edge safety razors, with many men turning to them for their simplicity and relevance.

How to Use a Double Edge Safety Razor 

  • Prepare your face for shaving by washing your facial hair using the King C. Gillette Beard & Face Wash, before lubricating your face with the King C. Gillette Transparent Shave Gel 
  • Shave with the grain (the same direction that your hair grows in), using short razor strokes, positioning the safety razor at a 30° angle for maximum precision. 

When to Use a Safety Razor 

Our King C. Gillette Double Edge Safety Razor can be used every time you shave - just remember to regularly change your razor blades. Fresh, sharp blades are less likely to cause shaving cuts - dull or damaged blades come with a greater risk of nicks. King C. Gillette Double Edge Safety Blades are the recommended replacement razor blades for our Double Edge Safety Razor.

Good Value

This is a good-quality 3-piece razor, suitable either for a young buck or a grumpy old man. The head nicely plated ZAMAK, evidentially made in Germany (my guess based in the German instructions on the protective paper inside it). It provides a small blade gap for a mild shave. I find it comfortable and effective. The handle is made in China. It seems to be plated brass. It has an attractive style, and it's weight gives the razor a nice balance. It has a textured surface in the upper half only. I'll guess that this was done not only for stylistic reasons, but also as a hint to newbies where to hold it with their thumb and forefingers. Not a bad idea. The grip could be better, but it's adequate. The rounded end, however, may look attractive, but to me it's just annoying. I'm used to steadying my razor with my pinky resting on the end of the handle; the round end deprives me of a rest for it. Overall, this razor is a good value compared to it's competition (e.g., Merkur). It's nice to have a good double-edge safety razor widely available in retail outlets.

King C Gillette DE Razor.

Nice packaging, quick delivery. Stylish product at a very good price. Good weight and balance. Gave me a close and comfortable shave with a Gillette Platinum Blade. Very pleased with this purchase.

King C DE razor

Ok for the price not in the class of a Rockwell or ATT but perfectly adequate! Great to see Gillette producing a DE razor reduce plastic and save the environment. Thanks

King C Gillette double edged razor

Excellent razor for design,weight,quality of build/engineering and use. A pleasure to shave with this five star razor. It has a heavy handle which allows for non aggressive shaving, just rest the razor against your face, no pressure required and allow a 30 degree angle between skin and blade and guide the razor in direction of stubble growth. Let the razor do the work. There is no doubt that this is a value for money razor and a pleasure to use. The razor blades are quality also, however they are more expensive than most blades. But as razor blades are very much a personal choice you can use any double edged blade you wish to use in this razor. I fully recommend this razor.

Nice kit, poor shave

The razor is beautifully weighted, nice and solid, and very good quality. However, having used Gilllette Fusion razors for a few years, I was disappointed with the closeness of the shave that I achieved.

King C Gillette

I was quite pleasantly surprised with the quality of the razor  The length of the handle was just right  That’s my opinion  The weight and overall feel was quite good  Ps if you’re ever thinking of going into production again ie ( Fatboy ) that length handle would be perfect 

Top product

Was really happy with the shaver and will be using it for a while!  I really recommend it. 

Very Impressed

I have a lot of razors, that I have collected over the years, and of the more modern ones this is definitely one of the best. It is a weight is about right and the handle has a very sure grip. Using a Feather blade I found the shave very comfortable and as close as you can expect from a close comb razor.

Delighted

This razor is beautifuly made and finished. It was a great buy and very smooth shave with original King blades.

Solid bit of kit

I've got a few safety razors in rotation (for head shaves) and got this on a whim during a sale. The razor has a good weight, the grip is surprisingly good given the partial knurling and it's smooth and pretty aggressive which is perfect for my bald pate. The blades are sharp and seem to last well too, though perhaps a bit pricey for regular use.
