The Best Razors for Men That Provide the Best Shave

A clean shave requires patience, technique, experience, and most importantly, the right tool.

Just like an artist uses the best brushes, a construction worker uses the best tools, you should use the best razor to give you the perfect, clean, smooth shave.

Before we give you our list of best razors, you should understand the types of razors that are out there available to buy.

Safety Razors

This type of razor is commonly used by men. The razor is locked in a safe angle in order to prevent any cuts and nicks. Safety razors are very easy to use and are great for beginners. Be careful as they can be really sharp.

Cartridge Razors

Another common type of razor that men use, cartridge razors vary in quality. The best ones give you the best clean shaven, while others will not do a good job for you. The downside of cartridge razors is that they can be very expensive if buying from a store.

Straight Razors

Straight razors are vintage shaving tools that are not that popular amongst men. This is due to the fact that they are extremely sharp and very tricky to handle. Barbers use straight razors and it takes a lot of experience to master this shaving tool.
