Close Comb safety razors

Today’s closed comb razors are often even less aggressive than those in years past and the shave you receive from one open comb razor can differ greatly depending on the brand and head type. Fortunately, for the beginning wet shaver, most of the standard closed comb razors are fairly forgiving for those looking to just get started in the process.

The bottom plate of a closed comb razor is designed with a flat edge that typically has grooves in it; it’s referred to as ‘closed’ because the safety edge has no gaps or teeth. The flat edge of the bottom plate keeps the skin stretched tightly across the bar whilst shaving, providing a ‘’safer’’ shave. Considered the gentlest of safety razors it’s perfect for daily shaves and well suited to sensitive skin as well as beginners.
