This is not your grandfather's metal razor (or your corner store plastic junk). This safety razor is designed to feel good in your hand with just enough weight for a smooth shave — reducing irritation, ingrown hairs, and razor burn. It's made for all hair types, skin types, and for every part of every body. It's forever refillable with standard razors (yay!). AND it's made in Canada. The fact that it looks good is just a bonus. Which is a good thing, because it's going to last you a lifetime.
P.S. Before you balk at the price, understand a few things: This refillable razor is made by a woman-owned company in Canada and can be used for a lifetime. Your plastic razors cost you and the planet a whole heck of a lot more. WHAT'S GOOD?
Reduces irritation and ingrown hairs
Works with standard safety razor blades
Stainless steel blades are plastic-free and can be recycled
Made in Canada
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Disposable plastic razors. Did you know, on average, one person may dispose of over 96 razors in their lifetime? On a global scale, that’s billions of plastic razors being sent to landfill every single year. (I think as a teenager, I used that many!)
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Size: 4" X 1.
When cared for properly, our brass safety razor will last a lifetime. It works with plastic-free, stainless steel razor blades that can be recycled.
HOW TO SET-UP YOUR SAFETY RAZOR Your razor is made up of three parts and you’ll add the blade to make it four. Handling your razor is easier with dry hands so we recommend setting it up before you hop in the shower or bath.
1. Hold the handle of your razor in one hand and grip the head in the other, pinching down from top to bottom. Unscrew the handle and gently lay all the parts down.
2. If you’re changing blades, this is a good time to give everything a good rinse in some soapy water.
3. Pick up the blade, taking care not to touch the sharp edges, then pop it onto the top piece, lining up the holes in the razor with the spokes on the head.
4. Gently lay the flat head piece on top with the spacer ridges touching the blade—if you place it the wrong way, the blade won’t reach your skin and won’t cut your hair.
5. Hold the head steady by pinching the top and bottom, avoiding the sharp blade edges, and then screw the handle back on.
6. Enjoy your best shave ever!
We recommend switching blades after every 5-8 shaves. Watch the company's step-by-step video on replacing your blade. Take extra care and be super mindful while changing blades. Remember: dry hands, ridges to the blade, and don't touch those sharp edges.

END OF PRODUCT LIFE Safety blades don’t glide as easy when they need to be replaced, so you can always feel when it’s time for a new one. Collect used blades in a secure container with a lid. (We also sell the Blade Bank from this company!) Then recycle.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Well Kept was co-founded by Canadian entrepreneurs, Natalie and Emilie. Their story starts like many others – a desire for a product that they just couldn’t find. In their search for a more sustainable and enjoyable shaving experience, they discovered many other facets of wellbeing that weren’t just bad for your skin, but harmful for the earth, too. The Well Kept Safety Razor was born.
"Every day we’re learning more about sustainability, equality, and inclusion, and both with the connections we hold in our Well Kept community, and the actions we take as a brand, we hope to leave only a positive impact on the world. While some days can feel more challenging than others, we are forever learning, growing, and no day is ever the same, which we love."
