When it comes to straight razors, wet-shaving enthusiasts and those who wish to hone their skills in using this sharp precision instrument safely without getting nicks need to understand the various options and brands available.
The original straight razor is a single-blade that’s more than 2 inches long and doesn't come with a blade replacement option. The blade needs to be sharpened with a leather strop to get the desired sharpness. Due to its blade length, these traditional straight razors only need a few couples of passing to achieve a complete shave at the hands of skilled and trained professional barbers.
However, if you are a beginner interested in honing your wet shaving skills, a shavette razor is a great place to start. The company DOVO, which is still popular for its range of shavettes, coined - Shavette. A shavette razor, in essence, is a traditional straight razor but has a mechanism to change its blades. The standard single edge razor blades or a double-edged razor blade split in two is used in a shavette.
As more and more bloodborne diseases become prevalent, the need to change and use fresh blades for every person is the norm. This helps in increasing the popularity of the shavette, and many brands now have their own mechanism of replacing blades.
