Experience the classic look, feel and craftsmanship of Gillette’s traditional straight razors combined with 21st century shaving know-how with the King C. Gillette Double Edge Safety Razor. Inspired by the original iconic razor launched by King Camp Gillette in 1901, this safety razor features a specially optimised razor handle and double-edged blades for a close, smooth shave on the areas around your beard and moustache.  

  • Choice of two cutting edges 
  • Safety cap holds the double-edged (DE) razor blade in place 
  • Single razor blade is made from high-quality stainless steel, coated with platinum for added durability and an anti-friction coating for a more comfortable shave 
  • Guard with comb helps to control the distance between the blade and the skin 
  • Metal handle features a patterned surface for enhanced grip and control 

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.

King C. Gillette Double Edge Razor

Stop looking at the reviews and just buy this razor! I didn't quite believe that they were as good as people were making out! Such a clean shaved finish! 100% would recommend this razor!

Old school

Wow! I've tried every different type of razor over the years - I was up to using a 5 blade cartridge from a diffferent manufacturer - when I came across King Gilette. I was going to try one of the subscription razors, but was tempted with the look of this one (the others all look a bit naff). Just tried it now, and have been blown away by it; not only does the handle feel 'right', but the single blade seems to shave as close as a multi blade system, and that's just on one pass. I feel you have to take a bit more care with it, especially if your skin is sensitive to nicks (mine is) but man it's worth it. Not only does it look cool, but I think it's going to make shaving a bit more fun again.

Back to the Fifty's

I first started shaving in the late 50's with a razor similar to this, tried all types since then. Buying this took me back there, great razor feels good in your hand and well balanced love it.

Blades

Bought a pack of 10 razor blades to go back to what I started with 40 odd years ago. I can honestly say that they are just as good as they were. I done both hot a cold water shaves both were fine.

King shave

I have many vintage Gillette razors, As yet I've still to buy the King C & will be doing so, I tend to use my "superspeed" '1950 W1' Which is incredible, Or my 1920s brownie "3rd style" open comb "with customised solid brass handle & smooth clean finish made to exact specs but 1 solid piece (As early Gillette handle's, On many types of razors can be less complimentary to the blade head)

Shave !!

We used these in the armed forces years ago for the closest shave possible for inspections!! I had a Harry’s razor which was ok but NOTHING like the shave you get from this bad boy !! If you want a clean tight smooth shave look no further. 

King c

As an experienced shaver, this could possibly be the last razor you will ever need to buy. Super piece of kit. Well made, giving a smooth shave.

Clean fresh and smooth

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of this razor and shaving gel  Whit a smooth sharp finish top job

Great razor

Only had this a couple of days but I absolutely love it. Great weight, the handle is smooth but you can grip it well.Glides well with the right preparation of your face. I’ve used the Gillette blades supplied and with one pass I’ve had a great shave so looking forward to going for two. I have a few DE razors to choose from and this baby is right on top of my rotation list......in fact I’d say I’m going to be using it for a very long time. Highly recommend it and the blades too.

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.
