🪒 Safety Razors 101

for Transfems & Everyone Else Too!

I wrote this because I think a lot of folx end up using crappy disposable razors that don't work well *and* are quite expensive over time *and* generate a lot of waste!

what are these things?

what do i use?

operation

safety

where do i use it?

use & disposal of razorblades

other tools i use

  1. for my legs i use this[1] trimmer, it's great not as close of a shave as a razor, but it takes like 10 minutes and no painful stubble, and short enough that you can't see what's left
  1. for my face i use this tri-shaver thing[2] (not sure what they are called) not as close of a shave as a razor, but it takes 3 minutes in the morning and it's never cut me, and is still pretty smooth. i bet a newer one (this thing is old) would give an even better shave
