These are the top 5 Safety Razors on the Classic Shaving website, if you have never used a safety razor or are looking for a new one, any of these 5 will be the very best you will ever own.
#1 Classic Deluxe Vintage Safety Razor
Our Classic Chrome Closed-Comb Double-Edged Safety razor was designed to satisfy admirers of Merkur's 38c Hefty Long-Handled Classic "The Barber Pole" razor. Weighing in at a hefty 2.6 oz. and with an overall length of 4.25 inches, this is a razor that feels solid and sturdy in your hand. The blade-gap in the closed-comb head has been engineered to be especially non-aggressive and will give you a close, comfortable shave.
#2 The King Cobra Classic
The result is a razor that keeps everything we loved about the Cobra Classic and makes some major improvements. It's longer, heavier, and its flared base allows this razor to stand on its own. The biggest change is evident in the handle - less chrome, more grip, both in texture and ergonomic shape. The razor is a beast. The Cobra is a replaceable-blade safety razor which uses Feather blades from Japan. Feather's Professional and Pro-Guard blades have become wildly popular in the global shaving market for use with replaceable-blade straight razors. The King Cobra uses either of these superior blades in a more familiar shaving style to us here in the states.
#3 Parker 22R Gun Metal Butterfly Safety Razor
This double-edge safety razor's all-metal construction is built to last a very long time. It has the weight needed to provide a close, clean shave without the need to press it close to your face which can often cause razor burn and skin irritation. In addition, its extra-long, non-slip handle makes it a joy to use. This traditional shaver was designed for the price-conscious, well-groomed gentleman.
#4 Classic "Super Knurl" Safety Razor
Designed to satisfy the most discriminating of double edge safety razor shavers. Weighing in at a hefty 3 oz. and with an overall length of 4.25 inches, this is a razor that feels solid and sturdy in your hand. The blade-gap in the closed-comb head has been engineered to be especially non-aggressive and will give you a close, comfortable shave.
#5 BOG Safety Razor
For this price, the BOG safety razor is the best deal you can find. Having personally used this razor multiple times, the quality level is extremely high. This razor gets right to the point. It features a superb grip, and has a great blade angle for the perfect shave. It also includes a simple no-nonsense black water resistant carry case, with a 5 pack of feather razor blades.
