shaving with same razor for months

12/29/2017 by Roland

It seems to work well. I shaved with the same razor blade for at least 4 or 5 months. Sometimes, very lightly stroking on the strop seems seems to do the trick. Other times, more force is necessary. It's hard to really tell sometimes.

One thing I haven't done is use it right from the beginning of a new blade. Maybe that's the trick. I usually end up trying to "revive" a blade with it, maybe that's not the best approach, but it has worked to some degree.

They recommend to use it from day one- so that's what I do this time. We'll see.

Received order quickly. Bought one for my husband and worked so well on his razor that I ordered one for my son and one for my son-in-law for Christmas. Will save lots of money on buying razor blades. Shaving every day one blade lasted a month.More > < Less


Worth it

I tried it on my cheap disposable razor and it worked! It made it very sharp so be careful! Well worth the investment.

It is made well with good materials...

I love the old look of a real barber shop strop. It is made well with good materials. I used it once and can't tell yet how well it actually works but Ill check over time. I tend to use a razor many times before disposing of it so Ill wear it down and then check to see how well it perks the blades up. I use the 5 blade Gillette.More > < Less

About Razor Renew

Look Sharp

John Mecham was tired of spending money on pricey disposable razors. In his quest for a better option, he invented Razor Renew: a leather tool that manually sharpens and polishes not just razor blades but also knives, scissors, and other cutting instruments.

John’s tool is similar to the leather strops that old-school barbers use to sharpen straight edge razors. In the same way, Razor Renew can smooth the burrs and scratches on a disposable razor, bringing it back to like-new sharpness. What’s different is the material. John found that cowhide, which is great for straight edges, is too harsh for thin razor blades. He experimented with different leathers and different designs before settling on a two-sided combination: a suede side to sharpen and hone the metal, and a smooth leather side to buff and polish. The short version is for blades less than three inches long, and the long version works with larger knives, scissors, and other blades.

If you’re looking to get more use out of disposable razors, or you want a DIY tool to maintain your knives and scissors, Razor Renew is a handy solution. It’s made in the USA, and it’s designed to last a lifetime if you care for it properly. John wouldn’t have it any other way.
