What's an Injector Blade?

Your razor is only half of what gets you that incredibly close shave. The other half? Your trusty razor blade. You can have a beautiful tool, but if the blade doesn't perform to your satisfaction, it's useless.

Your razor is only half of what gets you that incredibly close shave. The other half? Your trusty razor blade. You can have a beautiful tool, but if the blade doesn't perform to your satisfaction, it's useless.

Our Single Edge uses standard injector style blades and are not proprietary to our razor. They may seem new to you, but they have been in production for many decades and can be easily be found around the world. Our blades are proudly made in the United States by a manufacturer that has been in production for over 100 years. Rest assured, they're going nowhere.

What's so great about them?

Glad you asked. Injector blades are twice as thick as blades used in both multi-blade and double edge razors. Why does this matter? It means they flex less, cut cleaner, and last longer. No flex means no blade chatter, which is a common issue with many of our competitor razors, and the reason behind irritation, nicks, and cuts.

While we have some customers who can get twenty shaves out of the same blade, our average customer usually gets between 5-7 shaves before needing to swap out a new blade. Since our blade pack ships with twenty blades inside the cartridge, one pack typically lasts most customers up to six months of shaving.

And when you need to come back for a refill, the cost is only 50 cents a blade. On average, it costs $20 a year for blades used in the Single Edge. Take a look at your most recent receipt for the cartridges you bought and start tallying up how much you spend on refills in a year. How does it stack up?

 

Not only that, but injector blade changes are lightning fast, simple to perform, and touch free. Every Single Edge ships with an injector pack of blades in the box. The cartridge simply injects a new blade into the razor handle while ejecting the old blade. All of this takes less than five seconds, if that.

When you've ejected a used blade, just flip your pack over, and you'll find a nifty opening to insert and store your used blades. No sharp objects lying in your trash can or recycling bin unattended, waiting for an unsuspecting toddler or pet to find. Once you finish using all of your blades in the pack, just recycle the entire thing: blades and all. Safe, cheaper and better for the environment.

Hi, I saw it when i bought my razor but now i can’t find the info. what brand of injector blades aren’t compatible with the supply razor again?

I’m curious about the “recycle the entire thing” statement.
What is the blade pack made of? If it’s plastic it’s still creating plastic waste right?
