This is the OneBlade Genesis Single Edge Razor. It features a pivoting head, a jaw-dropping design, flawless high-precision engineering and a stunning stand. The razor and stand are made from ultra-high-grade German stainless steel with military-grade PVD coating. This comes well presented in a OneBlade branded cardboard box.
Four years in development; the Genesis is thought by many, including Mantic the respected shaving and grooming blogger, to be the 'perfect razor'. It's machined to a tight tolerance of only +/- 0.05mm.
Watch our Brian Mulreany use the Genesis here in this unedited YouTube video.
The Genesis 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.
The Genesis has a pivoting head that 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.
This is by far, without any shadow of a doubt, the finest-crafted, best looking Single Edge/Safety Razor I have ever seen.
It has a hollowed handle which reduces the weight of the razor and each razor is individually numbered.
When not in use, the Genesis rests on a perfectly matching, highly polished, solid stainless steel stand that has a rubberised base.
The Genesis uses the 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 approximately halfway 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 Genesis is only compatible with Feather Splineless Single Edge Blades. These blades are good for between 2 and 4 shaves depending on how many passes you do, your beard and your skin type.

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.
There were genuine gasps from the staff when I opened the box and showed off the Genesis. It really is that beautiful.
The engineering used on the Genesis exceeds even the Japanese Feather safety razors and that's saying something.
We love the fact that every razor comes with its own unique identification number (this is printed on the packaging and engraved on the underside of the pivoting head).
Both the razor and stand are made from German made stainless steel. The razor comes in a branded, cardboard presentation box.
