Razor Care Products Explained:
Razor Oil – Use a few drops of razor oil to keep internal moving parts and screw threads lubricated and jam free.
Best used on razors with internal moving parts, such as Muhle R89 Twist, Muhle R41 Twist, Merkur 34C, Merkur Futur and Vintage razors. Razor oil can also be used to prevent your cut throat razor blade from rusting. Apply a few drops to the metal blade and wipe over to leave a thin film on the metal. Ideal if you don’t use your cut throat razor regularly. Remember to wash it off before you use the razor.
Metal Polish – Use a spot of metal polish to keep your cut throat razor blades gleaming, also good for removing rust spots off vintage safety and cut throat razors, this polish will give your razors a shiny 'as new' look.
Razor Blade Guard – Use this cover if you take your safety razor on your travels, it protects the head from any knocks and stops you cutting your fingers when you rummage around your wash bag.
