Three billion plastic razors are thrown away each year in the US alone. That’s more than 5,000 every minute. Leaf Shave products are made of metal, built to last, and backed by a lifetime warranty.

The Twig Razor is half the size of a typical double-edged safety razor and much safer and more effective for those hard-to-reach areas. It comes with a smaller pre-angled fixed-head designed to be easy to use and glide along your skin for a clean, close shave. Made with zinc alloy, stainless steel and available in a polished Chrome finish.

The Twig by virtue of being the smallest-head on a safety razor, excels in shaving small, tight, or sensitive areas. In general, it is a particularly good razor for intimate areas given its size and precision control. Includes one Twig Razor and one 5-blade starter pack.

How to load the razor:
Step One: Open the blade holder by twisting the bottom of the handle clockwise.
Step Two: Load a single-edge blade into your Twig.
Step Three: Then, secure the blade by twisting the bottom of the handle counterclockwise until finger-tight.

Caring for your razor:
Give your razor head a thorough rinse inside and out after shaving to get rid of any shaving soap or hair. Rinse the blades, and then allow them to dry (or blow the water off of them) before re-loading.

Periodically run your razor through a deeper clean. Use a drop of dish soap and a soft brush (like an old toothbrush) and scrub in the nooks and crannies. For tougher build-ups or hard water marks, soak your razor in a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water for up to 10 minutes, then scrub with a drop of dish soap and a soft brush before towel drying. The reflective mercury finish is harder and thus more resilient overall and should maintain quite well over the years.
Leaf Shave products are made of metal, built to last, and backed by a lifetime warranty. Shaving with Leaf unlocks the very inexpensive (but high quality) use of safety razor blades which allows you to replace your blades at about one-tenth the cost of disposable plastic cartridges. You will see a return on your investment quickly, saving on overpriced disposable blades. If for any reason a razor has reached the end of its life, instead of sending it to a landfill, you can recycle it through scrap-metal streams. All Leaf Shave products are cruelty-free too.

For your razor:
Leaf Shave razors are under a Lifetime Warranty. If anything goes wrong with your razor because of a manufacturing defect, you can reach out to the company at hello@leafshave.com to assess the use of your razor's warranty. You must be the original purchaser (with proof of purchase). If it was a gift, you must be able to verify the original order or purchaser information. If the issue is under warranty, Leaf Shave will repair or replace the razor. If the razor has reached the end of its life, it can be stripped down and recycled through scrap-metal streams.

For the razor blades:
Leaf Shave makes it easy to recycle used safety razor blades. Their blade takeback program lets you send blades back for recycling through scrap metal streams. To do this, simply secure the tin with tape, pack it up and send it to:
Leaf Shave c/o RECYCLE
48 Taugwonk Spur Road Unit 2
Stonington, CT 06378

The tin will hold a couple of hundred blades, so you do not have to send them in too often. Additionally, this takeback program will accept blades back in any durable tin; you could, for example, upcycle an old mints tin!

Alternatively, you can recycle your razor blades with your local scrap metal recycling facility too.
