Recyclable

This product contains recyclable materials. It may be recyclable with curbside recycling collections, but might need to be sent to a special recycling facility. Contact your local waste-hauler or recycling facility for details. Appropriate facilities may not exist in your area.

Sustainable Lifestyle

This product helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it encourages re-use and the movement away from disposable products, or it promotes sustainable actions like recycling and composting, this product can help you lower your environmental footprint.

BPA Free

Products that are labeled as BPA free do not contain Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastic products. Studies on BPA exposure have shown that high levels of BPA could lead to hormone disruption, effects on behavior and brain function, reproductive problems, breast cancer, heart disease, infertility, and more.

Recycled Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that contain recycled content.

Hemp

This high-yield crop grows quickly and usually doesn’t rely on harsh pesticides and fertilizers, making it a dependable renewable resource. The cannabis plant produces more fiber per acre than common textile crops like cotton and flax, and actually adds nutrients to the soil instead of depleting them! Hemp is strong, breathable, and moisture wicking, and it requires minimal dye during fabric production due to its high absorbency qualities.

Product Specifications

Product Care

  • To insert a blade into the safety razor, twist the bottom of the razor handle to open and close the 2 blade holding wings and secure the blade
  • Rinse all the soap or hair from your razor after each use. Shake dry or towel dry. Store somewhere dry. If you ever notice corrosion or rust starting to develop you can generally rub that spot vigorously with a terry cloth towel, or if a more aggressive approach is needed, use a small piece of emery cloth. Drying the blades themselves with a towel will contribute to much quicker blade dullness.
  • Tips for use: make sure you are using a good lubricating shaving cream or soap. Hold the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin. Do not apply much pressure or pull too hard; the weight of the razor itself is acting on the blade and that is generally sufficient for a great, close shave. Use short strokes, especially in the beginning. Rinse the blade often as you go. For an excessively excellent shave, try shaving after a shower or steam bath.

About the Company

Albatross

Nobody knows the oceans better than a true sailor–and the founders of Albatross Designs are just that. Unfortunately, sailors also see the incredible amounts and impacts of the plastic waste that’s currently floating in the oceans. Albatross Designs is on a mission to both reduce the plastic that enters our waste stream, and to remove the plastic that already litters our streets and oceans. Their reusable, metal safety razors are made for high performance, have a sleek design, and can last nearly forever if well kept. They’ve even thought about what happens to the individual blades after use, creating a take-back program to recycle blades into reusable utensil sets!

    Not scary!

    I was a little worried about how it would be to insert the blades into the razor and shave with this, but it is really not scary at all. It works better than plastic razors and limits waste. I love that they will recycle the old blades too. An easy switch!

      Hi Athena! The blades and the razor itself are made of 100% high-polished stainless steel. The handle can be recycled wherever stainless steel is accepted. Check your local recycler for what they can accept and suggestions for scrap metal recycling in your area!

    Awesome Razor

    kylierwill (verified owner)

    I have been using this for about a month now, and I’m really happy with the quality of the product. Its easy to hold onto in the shower, and it has a good weight in your hand which makes it easier to “grip” your skin without adding too much extra pressure. My previous razor had rusted out and stopped opening, which is why I had ordered this one originally. So far it seems resistant to rust, and I’m really happy with it. I use the shark brand blades with it; just personal preference.

    Of course I would recommend everyone switching to a straight razor – it’s so much cheaper than plastic, and you get a closer shave anyways with the added benefit of it being eco-friendly.

    Takes some getting used to.

    tiffikay (verified owner)

    I’m used to a razor that’s advertised to get the job done fast. This works, but you have to go SUPER slow and make your skin slick. I cut myself about 5 times my first time using it. I’m certainly not comfortable shaving more sensitive areas with it, yet.

    My first ever straight razor & I’m in love! I’ve used plastic razors my whole life & was so nervous about switching, but this switch was absolutely seamless. This razor is sturdy, portable, and so easy to clean. I also love that Albatross has a blade return program. This razor is definitely a zero-waste essential!

    k.m. (verified owner)

    This razor is amazing. Easy to use, easy to clean, beautifully close shave. It comes with 10 blades, and as someone who doesn’t shave much, I think they will last me for a good long while. I love being able to take the blade out after every shave and wash it and/or disinfect it with alcohol. The handle is definitely short, so if you want something closer to standard size or have big hands, maybe go with the extra long handle version. The texture of the metal also makes it easier to grasp especially with wet shower hands.

    I was skeptical but after the first use I’m personally in love! I like that it’s really easy to clean, it gives a good close shave & I like that there is two sides to use as well. If you use it with a light touch & use your other hand to kind of pull your skin so it’s nice & flat that definitely helps.

    I love this razor! Took some time to get used to, but will last for so long. I have had mine for 5 months and I will never switch back to a plastic razor. I also use a shaving bar with mine and that works well. I bought one for my mom for Christmas because I thought it would be a great gift to make a family member more sustainable too. If you are thinking about it, just go for it! Saves money in the long run too.

    I haven’t had any issues with cutting myself just make sure that the area u are shaving is wet with water and/ or soap. The only thing is I will mention that the blades come in a very small box and for me it was difficult opening that and getting to the actual blade. Soo big hands beware lol.

    Boyfriend loves it!

    EarthHero (verified owner)

    Hey, it’s Hannah from EarthHero! I purchased this a couple of months ago for my boyfriend, since he was getting razor bumps from his conventional razor. At least once a week I hear him rave about how much he likes it! Not only does it have the “cool” factor with the full stainless steel design, but it shaves very smoothly and doesn’t create the razor bumps that he was getting before! You need to switch the blades out more regularly than with a multiblade razor, but with super affordable replacement blades that come in packs of 20, it saves so much money in the long run!

    I love this razor!! My mom had warned me about switching to a safety razor and that I would probably cut myself often with it. I have been using it for two weeks and can say I have not cut myself once. Blades seem to last two weeks for me, I shave around 2-3x a week. Amazing to support a closed loop system. You definitely also need a good shaving soap, it will not work without some form of lubricant.

    I was weary buying this due to the price, I had never bought a razor for more than 10 dollars. I bought it because I wanted a more sustainable option and most other brands got bad reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. It comes with a bunch of extra blades, making the price more than worth it. Plus, the blades are easy to insert.

    Decided to swap the plastic razors for their more sustainable option. It’s a bit of a learning curve but not too bad at all! It gets easier to use after the first few times of trying it out. I was a bit nervous about cutting myself since it’s so different than plastic razors, but I haven’t accidentally cut myself much more than I did with typical razors. I recommend watching a tutorial on how to use a safety razor if you’re new to it! The blades are very easy to replace with the butterfly function. As long as you take your time with it and are confident then you’ll have no issue making the switch! 🙂

    Last Razor I'll Ever Buy

    Sarah (verified owner)

    Can’t believe I didn’t invest in a safety razor sooner, and this is great. Super close shave. I was scared to use it at first but it’s easy to get the hang of. I shaved my ***entire*** body with it, and it was fine. You can’t nonchalantly shave, you have to pay attention to what you’re doing. Certain areas take more time to shave than others, so if you’re going to do a Brazilian-style shave, set aside some time.

    It comes in a burlap pouch, but I wish it came in a case of some kind to store it in. I can’t store a razor in the pouch without slicing up the bag, so I’ve just been taking the blade out and then putting the razor in the pouch. It would just be easier to store it in a case with the blade still in there, and offer extra protection in storage.

    I have not used the recycle/return your blade program that Albatross does, but I am excited to!
    So happy with the razor overall!
