Razor blades are a small but vital component in any shave. From the sharp simplicity of double edge razor blades for traditional safety razors, to the convenience of the Gillette Fusion5 Razor Blade & Gillette Mach3 Razor Blade disposable cartridge systems, The English Shaving Company has you covered.
The double edge safety razor blades we offer are suitable for all standard types of safety razor and come in a uniform size. We stock razor blades from many leading brands including Astra, Derby, Dovo Merkur, Feather, Gillette, Lord, Personna, Super-Max, and Wilkinson Sword. We even offer a small moustache razor with matching razor blades for fine tuning the old ‘tache, and special Feather Artist Club blades, only for use with the Feather Artist Club shavettes.
These razor blades are made from a special type of stainless steel designed specifically for use in a razor blade. They are disposable, and should usually be changed somewhere between one and seven shaves, depending on preference. As double edge razor blades are all metal, they can be recycled - you can even pick up a handy blade disposal tin to store your used razor blades.

The Gillette Fusion5 Razor Blades are compatible with any Gillette Fusion Razor, and likewise the Gillette Mach3 Razor Blades are compatible with any Gillette Mach3 Razor. Double edge safety razor blades are not compatible with Gillette’s cartridge system razors.
Razor blades are very much a personal choice and work differently depending on the razor they are combined with and the hair and skin type of the user. We recommend trying a variety of different razor blades when you’re getting started with wet shaving to find the razor blade that works best for you.
