Stainless Razor: Long handle, Slate
or 6 weekly payments from $7.00 learn more
This razor has a slightly longer handle than the Classic Razor, making shaving a breeze with more area for you to grip onto.
Comes with 5 x stainless steel blades and 1 x blade return envelope.
Dimensions: 10.8cm handle, 4.4cm blade holding plate.
WHY: disposable plastic shavers fill our landfills and sometimes find their way into the oceans. These are a super durable, plastic-free option.
Extra blades are available in a pack of 20 and are super affordable. Used blades can be placed in the envelope provided and sent to CaliWoods; please see more below.
Suitable for everyone. Face, legs, underarms, bikini line - this safety razor can shave everywhere!
HOW: The CaliWoods razor has a simple screw mechanism and two top holding plates - super durable with less parts that can break compared to a butterfly razor.
1. Unscrew the head from the handle.
2. Place blade between the two top plates, holding by the blunt edges.
3. Screw the handle back on and shave away! Use gentle pressure - let the weight of the stainless steel do the work. I find that holding the razor at a 45 degree angle works well. Frequently rinse the shaving soap and hair from the razor, before continuing. Once finished, unscrew the razor, remove blade, dry completely, before reassembling for next time. Replace the blade when it goes blunt. On average this is every fifth shave, less for thick hair, more for fine hair.
4. Store your razor out of the shower between uses and take care not to drop your razor. We have the CaliWoods drawstring bag also available to purchase - ideal when travelling or even for storage at home.
SHAVING SOAP: I sell a beautifully foaming soap called Lather, created by Be Natural. Mostly organic Ingredients and contains no nasties. Please see below. I find a good shaving soap or oil is really important to prevent razor burn.
REPLACEMENT PARTS: I love that CaliWoods offer replacement parts for their razors. They are serious about creating products that last for ages and giving customers the right to repair! If anything should ever happen to your razor, or you loose a part, they have separate pieces available via email order.
The CALI BLADE TAKE BACK PROGRAM: if you send your used blades back to CaliWoods clean and dry, they will repurpose or recycle them! Once you have 40 or more blades, simply post them back. They even accept blades from another brand. Considering the end-of-life of a product and closing the waste loop is part of their product stewardship, and a large part of why I have chosen to stock the Cali Razor.
Please ensure blades are wrapped securely with no sharp edges.
