How to choose the right Safety Razor for you

So you're tired of shaving irritation, rashes and burns. You've discovered the world of wet shaving and the various different types of Safety Razors. You're asking yourself “How do I use a Safety Razor?” along with “Which is the best safety razor for me?”.There is a huge number of DE Safety Razors available and it's hard to know which Safety Razor to buy when you're a beginner.

So you're tired of shaving irritation, rashes and burns. You've discovered the world of wet shaving and the various different types of Safety Razors. You're asking yourself “How do I use a Safety Razor?” along with “Which is the best safety razor for me?”.
There is a huge number of DE Safety Razors available and it's hard to know which Safety Razor to buy when you're a beginner. Three piece (The same design as our STAG collection), two piece, one piece; wood, chrome, metal; traditional, old school, new school; close cut and adjustable cut, there are in fact a huge number out there, but what does it all mean?
One piece; Two Piece, Three Piece, Fou... Ok, just three piece pieces. But what are the different kind of Safety Razors?
This is the number of detachable moving parts to the razor. The more parts to the razor, the more control you have. Traditional Safety Razors contain three parts to them, and some things are best left unchanged. With full autonomy over the entirety of your pride and joy, you have the freedom to switch blades, parts and give your Safety Razor a real MOT when it needs cleaning. This is why we adopted the three piece Safety Razor model for our collection:
Three Piece Safety Razor
Two Piece Safety Razor 
 One Piece Safety Razor
Open Comb, Closed Comb. I'm not looking for a brush?
No, no, not a hair comb. We're not talking about shaving brushes here, either. The comb is the safety bar that sits on the Safety Razor headpiece. So, what are the different types of headpieces and combs on a Safety Razor?
Closed Comb Safety Razor
So, "is a Safety Razor dangerous?", "can I cut myself with Safety Razor?".
You will notice from the above STAG Razor, that the safety bar (the grooved tongue that runs along both long edges of the headpiece), that this safety gap between a skin ravishing blade and your cheeks, has no gaps. This means that the closed comb offers a reduced risk of cuts to your skin. We believe this to be a more suitable approach to the vast majority of people using a traditional razor regularly.
Open Comb Safety Razor
"Will I cut myself with a Safety Razor?", Well, if you're not squeamish, and you've plenty of experience, then perhaps not, and the above Safety Razor may be for you. It's one for the pros, one for the daring, one for the brave. This razor can offer a closer cut, so as long as you know what you're doing, this can be a suitable alternative for you.
Final thoughts
Wet shaving offers a number of Safety Razors to choose from, what's best for you may not be the best Safety Razor for others. Three-piece designs are expected to last the longest, with the greatest autonomy. Other DE Safety Razor styles perhaps offer more simplicity.
The headpiece you select should reflect whether you're a beginner, novice or expert wet shaver; as well as how thick your stubble is. 
Our closed comb design produces a milder shave than perhaps an open comb razor that leaves nothing for the faint hearted with a more aggressive approach. This means our Safety Razors are suitable for all levels and offer that additional measure of safety. 



The History of the Traditional Safety Razor

A slice of historyIn the 19th century, long before the world of mass production and the plastic revolution, shaving was a dangerous sport. In fact, shaving was so dangerous, no gentleman dared to pluck the courage to remove their stubbly growth in their own home. It was the barber who would deliver the man's shave, even Safety Razor shaving was not yet a thing.A lifestyle change for all menThe Englishman, William Henson, was about to invent a household item that would gift the man...

A slice of history
In the 19th century, long before the world of mass production and the plastic revolution, shaving was a dangerous sport. In fact, shaving was so dangerous, no gentleman dared to pluck the courage to remove their stubbly growth in their own home. It was the barber who would deliver the man's shave, even Safety Razor shaving was not yet a thing.
A lifestyle change for all men
The Englishman, William Henson, was about to invent a household item that would gift the man the opportunity to change his lifestyle for centuries to come. 
The English inventor, above, sporting an excellent beard and moustache himself (Albeit well shaven around the chin - the 19th century was perhaps not the pinnacle of men's style and fashion), created this change.
It wasn't until the year 1904 when Gillette finally patented what they saw as a better, or best version of the Safety Razor, that the traditional Safety Razor became the number one stocking filler gift for all men across America. Men across the globe were learning how to shave with a Safety Razor and Gillette dominated the market.
The Double Edge Safety Razor was to change the face of Men's grooming around the world.
Hairy times ahead
Along came the 60's and a new arrival to market. An ingrowing hair to the Safety Razor's smooth ride; The Disposable Razor.
Brandished as a convenient an easy replacement for the Safety Razor, the throw away plastics soon became a hit to the growing pace of Men's lifestyles across the world. The Art of Shaving were to take a huge cut and globalisation and plastification was to dominate a new era in the world of shaving for decades to come.
Men were sacrificing quality for convenience. There was a clear distinction in the quality of shave. Increased shaving irritation, shaving rashes, ingrowing hairs and shaving burns wouldn't stop the new trend from taking hold of the market.
Back with a Splash
Fast forward half a century, and the Safety Razor has made an expected and phenomenal comeback. Now rife across homes in the UK and US specifically, the Safety Razor has made an expected return.
Perhaps as we value more our health and skin and detract and rebel against the modern day work-life balance, the Gentleman is returning to his former glory. It's time to cherish your skin, your grooming routine and your well being.
To the Safety Razor; Welcome back, you have been sorely missed.

We're proud of our heritage and the wonderful treasures we have at our own doorstep. That's why all of our Safety Razors are made in Britain by British Artisans using British woods.
We first brought to market the magnificent Yew and mysterious Laburnum Safety Razors, rich with character, history and significance. These woods were carefully selected in order to deliver the best Safety Razor on the market, each with its own striking look and feel.
We wanted to add to our collection. A third Safety Razor, different in class, with even more sophistication. So we took to the sea and set sail for the something extra special.
Que Es Cocobolo?
The mission
Where were we to look? Of course we were FAR from exhausting the wood delicacies that the British Isles had to offer, but we wanted a Safety Razor that offered something different to our current collection.
The criteria
We searched long and far for inspiration to add to our selection. With so many different woods across the globe we searched long and far for something that we believed would stun the wet shaving world.
It was important that the wood we chose had the right characteristics, both aesthetically and ergonomically to allow our artisans right here in Britain to transform the wood into the luxurious handle you pick up that makes your morning better. The wood had to be workable.
We stand by our values. That's why we needed to ensure both that the wood we found was sourced responsibly and that it held the durability required to be best in class. It's important to us that we bring you the best.
The discovery of Cocobolo
The hunt continued. The shortlist was drawn up. Our hairs were on end. But one grain of heartwood stole our hearts and was a cut above the rest. We had found the third wood in our pack. The third Safety Razor in our herd. The Coco in our Bolo.
From the tropics of Central America, we found what we were looking for; El Cocobolo.
So, what is Cocobolo? 
A tropical hardwood, black-red-brown in colour with a wonderfully suttle texture that runs throughout the hardwood, oozing luxury and class, polished to a luxury glass finish to sit proudly in your bathroom.
The Cocobolo is a dense, solid hardwood that is extremely durable.
Because of its heritage of very damp climates, the Cocobolo wood is highly water resistant; a real advantage given its new habitat of the wet bathroom. (For best practice of making your DE Razor last, see our tips here on how to look after your Safety Razor.).
The Cocobolo was a winner. A limited edition beautiful piece of exotic to add to the STAG collection of Safety Razors.
We proudly source all of our woods responsibly.
Does this mean that you're moving away from British Woods?
At the very core of our values is our commitment to an ethical supply chain right here in the UK. That's something that will never change.
The Cocobolo Safety Razor is a limited edition Razor that won't last forever. That means grab yours now while you can for an incredible shave! This is a piece of luxury you'll want to own forever. You can shop the Cocobolo Safety Razor while stocks still last here.
Can I use my existing blades with this Safety Razor?
All of our Safety Razors use the standard Stag Safety Bar head dimensions that are compatible with all standard double edge safety razor blades available on the market. That means that this razor, too, will be compatible with any shaving blades that you have already purchased for any other Stag Safety Razors.

What is a Safety Razor and why is a Safety Razor better for your skin?
First things first. The Safety Razor. Otherwise known as the Double Edge or DE Razor, the Safety Razor was the birth of the modern razor. The original razor was invented in 1847 by Englishman William Henson. The Safety Razor later hit the shelves in 1880, revamped to provide a safer shave with the same close cut.
The Safety Razor uses Double edge or DE razor blades and is renowned for being kinder to the skin. This are various reasons your skin is set to benefit, to name a few:
The Safety Razor requires less face strokes, leading to less irritation;Cartridge razors of a larger surface area with multiple blades can often irritate the skin. In contrast, the Safety Razor uses one DE razor blade;The Safety Razor by default offers a closer shave, leading to a smoother finish and less irritation.
