For a close shave, choose a double edge razor. Small, medium and large headed razors with a short or long handle are all options. To prevent slippage while shaving, handles often feature a metal with a criss-cross pattern that allows a firm grip.
Before purchasing your double edge razor, consider the blade exposure. The less the exposure the milder the shave, while a larger exposure gives a more aggressive shave. The razor is available in adjustable and non-adjustable styles.
