About Razor Blades
With dozens of types of razor blades on the market, finding the perfect one for you can be a real chore. Inventors have created a wide variety of razor and blade types, including straight, safety, cartridge, and disposable. Disposable razors are inexpensive, but wear out quickly and can irritate sensitive skin. Cartridge razors are a step up, with multi-bladed heads that can be used five to seven times before replacing the head. Safety razors lean more toward the traditional straight razor, but have a comb or safety bar attached, and have replaceable single or double-edged blades. Straight razors have a single durable blade that requires stropping to keep sharp, but last the longest of any razor blade type. Once you decide which razor is the best for you, check out eBay to find starter packs, bulk refill packs, and everything in between. eBay?s sellers carry handles, cartridge heads, single blades and everything else you need to achieve the perfect shave.
