How to Use a Butterfly Safety Razor

Using a butterfly safety razor can transform your shaving routine.

Here's how to master the art of shaving with this classic tool:

  1. Open the Razor: Twist the handle to open the blade chamber like butterfly wings for the blade.
  2. Insert and Secure Blade: Place a double edge razor blade into the chamber, then twist the handle in the opposite direction to close and lock the blade in place.
  3. Prepare Your Skin: Wet your face with warm water. Use a shaving brush to apply shaving cream in circular motions, creating a rich lather that lifts hair and protects your skin.
  4. Shave: Hold the razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin, gently gliding it with short strokes in the direction of hair growth. Use the weight of the razor for pressure and rinse the blade frequently.
  5. Rinse and Soothe: After shaving, rinse your face with cool water and apply after shave for hydration. Clean and dry your razor to maintain its condition.


What is a butterfly open safety razor?

A butterfly open safety razor, or twist-to-open (TTO) razor, is a double-edge razor known for its convenient blade-changing mechanism. By twisting the handle, the head opens like butterfly wings, allowing easy and safe blade replacement. 

This design simplifies the shaving process, making it particularly appealing for beginners or those seeking efficiency in their grooming routine. 

Butterfly razors offer quick, hassle-free blade changes without disassembly, providing a consistent and close shave with enhanced safety and ease of use.
