Who is the Core Single Edge Razor for?
The Core is for men who want to switch from shaving with cartridge blades for financial reasons, men who want to banish razor burn and ingrown hairs, men who want an environmentally sound razor with recyclable blades, men with sensitive skin and it's for men like me who want the very best shave possible.
The OneBlade Core is a Single Edge Razor that shares the same design profile as the OneBlade Genesis Razor. One significant difference is the OneBlade, patent pending “Active Floating Blade Approach System” (AFBAS).
AFBAS allows the blade to float in three directions while simultaneously ensuring the relationship between the critical measures of blade angle, blade exposure and blade gap. This was done by slightly expanding the blade insertion area and by adding a longitudinal pivot point an approximately half way from the cutting edge of the blade which allows the blade to rock up and down during the shaving process. This 'floating system' delivers a significant increase in the comfort and effectiveness of the shave. An additional benefit is a significant increase in the 'forgiveness' aspect of the razor leading to fewer shaving nicks.
The Core is made from engineer-grade Tritan Polymer, to give the razor the weight and balance needed, the handle has a core rod insert made from stainless steel - hence the name Core.
The Core has a pivoting head which works in a similar way to a modern-day Gillette Mach3/Fusion cartridge blade, this helps to negate cuts due to poor technique and pressing too hard when shaving.
When not in use, rest your Core on the fabulously designed and matching stand.
The Core uses Feather FHS-10 Hi-Stainless Spineless Single Edge Blades, these are approximately twice the thickness of a standard safety razor blade. This additional thickness delivers a shave similar to that from a cut throat razor but without the risks.
Blades are easy to insert, no need to take anything apart, slide in a blade until it clicks into place.
The OneBlade Core is a great razor, with the following benefits:
- Made from engineer-grade Tritan, lightweight polymer for durability.
- Solid stainless-steel core insert handle for perfect weight and balance.
- Pivoting head with stainless steel spring mechanism.
- Quick-load blade system
- Features the new, patent pending, Active Floating Blade Approach System (AFBAS)
- Comes with anodised aluminium stand, to keep it safe and secure when not in use.
- Built and assembled in San Diego, California, USA.
- Comes with OneBlade’s own 1-year warranty
- Compatible with Feather FHS-10 single edge blades.
Frankly, if you can use a safety razor or a cartridge razor you can use the Genesis.
Shave in short strokes, with the grain or across the grain to begin with, repeat or shave across the grain for a smooth finish.
The Core has a sublime, stylish design and best of all, it delivers a fuss-free, close shave. The pivoting head means it's almost impossible to apply too much pressure when you shave thus reducing significantly any risk of shaving nicks.
Easy, fast and safe blade changing, perfectly balanced in the hand and drop-dead, gorgeous looks, the OneBlade Core has it all.
Razor: Engineer-grade Tritan Polymer with a stainless steel core rod that runs through the length of the handle, stainless steel spring inside the pivoting head.
Stand: Anodised aluminium
