Everything About Occam's Razor


Occam's Razor Handling And Shaving Tips

 Occam's Razor - Simplify Your Shaving - (as seen & funded on kickstarter)

Let Occam's Razor simplify and improve the way you shave. A beautiful design with unmatched functionality.

Occam's Razor was designed to simplify your life and your shaving. We have taken the finest blades that barbers and beauticians use and brought them home to you. Now you can enjoy a barber or salon quality shave at home.  

More blades is not the answer to a better, closer shave. Anyone who has had a shave by a professional barber knows this. There is a reason the professionals only use one blade.

Occam's Razor features:

  • Easy blade loading and extraction without exposure to blade cutting edge.
  • Use your fingers or a tool to easily insert or remove blade.
  • Made from 316 Stainless Steel for lifelong use. 
  • Adjustable blades for skin types and facial hair types.
  • Easy cleaning and anti-clog design.
  • No more skin irritation, razor burn or razor bumps.
  • Stainless Steel Lifetime Construction.
  • Lifetime Warranty.

*Please note that depending upon what blades you use with the Occam's Razor non Stainless Steel blades will rust if stored in the shower or in wet environment or state. This can lead to stains on the finish of the handle or head.  Please dry after use to prevent this.


  • Multi-Blade cartridge razors create ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
  • High Costs for replacement cartridges.
  • Lowest quality of shave with some of the highest pricing per blade.
  • Low integrity gimmicks like vibrating heads and useless ball "technology".
  • Expensive upfront and expensive to maintain heads properly.
  • Loads of irritation (requiring a month or more for you skin to get "accustomed" to the abuse).
  • Typically a dry or near dry shave.
  • Hair is cut unevenly creating ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
  • Limited options and adjustments.
  • Same issues as the Cartridge Razors above just typically harder to return, cancel or get what you want.
  • Intimidating un-packaging of razor and no protective dispensing system. Exposure to 2 blade edges when changing blade.
  • Easily clogs, hard to wash out and harder to keep clean without serious maintenance. Lot's of moving parts to gum-up or fail. 
  • Have to twist to open and close or un-assemble razor to change blade.
  • Have to purchase another container to store sharp used blades.




Two billion disposable razor blades per year are used and thrown away… Additionally, shaving gel creates several other problems. Their metal cans are often refused by recycling plants as they are under pressure. These cans also may contain polluting chemicals and gasses such as aerosol, propane, butane, isobutane and many others.  

It is our goal to change the way you shave. You and your household can make a difference in landfill shaving waste, save money, get a better shave and make a real difference. How you ask? What is the answer?

Cool Piece of Kit

While I have been wet shaving for almost a decade I never tried a SE razor before the Occam Razor. My experience with the razor; I got as good of a shave as a straight razor without the associated hassles. The only minor issue is the razor is difficult to manage on the upper lip directly under the nose secondary to the large head. Overall a nicely made piece of marine grade stainless steel equipment that is innovative, fun and just looks cool!

Great razor!

The angle was easy to find but it did take a little getting used to holding the flat handle. It has become my daily razor!

Great razor!

Super simple & easily found the angle! I was worried about holding the flat handle but once I got used to it, it felt very natural! I would like to see a scallop design for the bottom bar. I think it'd let this awesome little razor slide easier. Other than that, I've found a razor I plan using for a very long time!


Too wide! What a design flaw.

I was really hoping this would replace my Mongoose that I dropped and damaged, however, I find the design to be less than desirable for my shaving needs. As you can see from the pictures, the head is much wider than the blade making it extremely difficult to shave under your nose, and for this reason, the razor will just get tossed to the back of my shaving supplies, never to be used again. For shaving efficiency and comfort, it was a very mild, comfortable, and a nick free shave using Feather Pro blades with the 2-dot head. I've been wet DE shaving for over 20 years and SE shaving for the past 4, so for anyone using DE or SE styles, you'll have no problems learning or using this razor. One last thought, I do shave in the shower for the extra steam and lubrication of the shaving cream on my face, and I find that this handle can be a little slippery. Nothing a little rinse won't take care of, but the handle could be made less polished, and perhaps add narling to give it a little more grip. Overall, a light, smooth and comfortable shave, but the hard to get areas I just struggled with. I've had the razor over a month, and I'm sad it's not for me personally. The search for a new SE razor continues... Cheers.

Classic Shaving

Dan, Thank you for the review and taking the time to explain the issues you encountered with the Occam's Razor. I am glad you enjoyed the shave but bummed it did not work out for you in the tight areas. You may want to try the OREN version it has a reduced guard. Feel free to contact Customer Support with your order number and if you send in your Occam's Razor I will personally mill it to OREN specifications on the head guard and that will help your trouble areas.

Was I wrong

What a piece of **** or so I thought when I opened the box. I might as well give it a go I bought it. I have shaved with anything else since I used it that first time what an excellent shaver! No pulling just a comfy smooth shave. My only knock the blades are a bit pricey. But you get a lot of shaves out of one wish they sold them in bulk don’t see me going back to the DE.
