Are Safety Razor Blades Universal?

Many of our customers ask us where they can find blades for our bamboo safety razor set. Or what type of blades do safety razors use?

The answer to this commonly asked question is quite simple. Shaving just isn’t that complicated!

Safety razor blades are universal (for the most part).

Let’s break it down: There are two types of razor blade. A double edged blade and a single edged blade.

Safety razors in general all use double edged blades which means when one side of the razor blade is worn out you can simply turn it around and use the other side.

To find double sided razor blades, simply order from 1 of many online retailers or head down to your local barbershop or supermarket and buy a pack.

Most safety razor blades can be used 8 times on each side on average, with 1 blade lasting a total of 16 shaves.

Using a safety razor for the first time can be a bit confusing, so if you are worried about choosing the wrong type of blade, the first time I bought blades I took my razor with me to show the barber. Perfect!
