Through science and innovation, men’s razors have undergone a huge transformation since the invention of the first safety razor by King C. Gillette. Discover the history of shaving and razor technology, brought to you by the scientists, engineers and designers from Gillette. Learn more: gillette.com/en-us/about-gillette/razor-portfolio-technology
Gillette’s story is a relentless quest for perfection. It encompasses a passion for science and technology. But first and foremost, it is about shaving. Each step has taken us closer to the barber’s skill. Responsive, sensitive, agile, close, and comfortable. And each has been driven not by the desire to change the product for its own sake...but by a never ending quest to emulate that perfect shave.

Safety razors are MUCH older than gillette. They started off as improvements on straight razors, adding combs and other structures that pull the skin to give a better shave with less skill. The "T" shaped razor design was done sometime mid 19th cent. iirc. By the time of Gillette safety razors were likely the norm, and they usually had a single unremovable blade. It required less skill to use, was much harder to cut yourself by mistake, but STILL required honing and stropping for daily use (look up "rolls razor" as an example). Gillettes GREAT idea about "replaceable blades" was AS MUCH about making a lot of money (people would have to keep buying more razors) as it was about improving this millenia old art.

I will never use another Gillette or Procter and Gamble product or service again, because of your sexist war on testosterone. Those company names are dirty words in my family now.

I do not see how a cartridge razor's is an improvement over DE razor's. In fact I switched from Gilette Mach 3 to a DE shaver a couple of month's ago. And never looked back.

I switched to Safety Razors a while back. They are much cheaper, generate less garbage, and don't irritate my skin.
MrPleers

I totally agree. Besides, the chance of ingrown hair is much less compared to a cartridge razor.

Safety Razors are 10x better than any cartridge razor and much cheaper. Even easier on sensitive skin. I use to get razor burn all the time, but nowhere near as much sense I’ve switched to a safety razor.

@Gillette well I suggest make just only one product for Safety razor..

Of course you recommend using a Multi-blade razor. Cost about 10 cents to make and sell for 48 times that much.

Not perfect for Gilette. On the cartridges they make a huge profit.

Why not start marketing safety razors to western markets again?

no money from it. its a fact, selling a 30$ razor once and making it an heirloom or selling a 20$ with 200$ of disposable cartdrige blade its a business.

Its not about selling razors. You only buy that once. Its about selling blades for as much as possible. Safety blades are too cheap.

Better for the environment too. Just switch out the dull blade and no plastic parts.

the modern gillette razors give me a lot of bumps and irritation , I tried using vintage gillette safety razor and it is much better , comfortable and cheaper than new gillette , but u must learn about it first before using it .

the new cartride razor pulls the hair up before cutting , which means that the hair sets under the skin level . thats the main reason and my skin doesn't like this cutting method. the safety razor has only one blade and it cuts the hair smoothly without pulling it . safety razor is better performer for my skin
