Clean shaven, without irritation
A safety razor isn't just a handle and a blade, it's actually a little more than that. It is a tailor-made razor that adapts to all needs. Forgotten for years, we talk about it again more and more. Yet it is an object that was patented in 1880, which makes it the ancestor of shaving.
It is also called safety razor or mechanical razor. It offers the big advantage of having a close shave, without irritation. Unlike a cartridge razor (multi-blade), the safety razor has only one blade, which can be replaced whenever you want. It is designed to last a lifetime, or even be passed down from generation to generation, which gives it undeniable economic and ecological advantages.
For comparison, a disposable razor is made up of 59 grams of plastic of fossil origin that will go to the trash between 6 and 10 shaves later.
Thanks to the Caliquo safety razor, you find this traditional technique and the pleasure of having a unique object designed in natural material for an optimal shave. Handcrafted in Normandy and the Jura by cabinetmakers and woodturners, the Caliquo razor is made of a hand-turned oak wood handle treated with linseed oil for optimal weather resistance. 'water.
The head and its closed comb are in chromed zamak. Zamak is an alloy of 5 non-ferrous metals (to prevent rust) which contains a portion of recycled materials. The Caliquo safety razor uses a head designed for maximum safety when used with a blade protruding less than a millimeter from the razor head.

How to use this safety razor ?
Being a precise and very handy tool, the safety razor is ideal for drawing the contours of the beard. But it is also used for the complete shaving of the legs or the armpits for example. In practice, here's how it works :
Cleanse your skin with warm water. Then, use a foam, gel, soap or moisten a solid shaving bar (see here) then pass it over the skin to deposit a creamy foaming cream. First shave in the direction of the hair. If there are still some hairs, then pass the safety razor in the other direction, and to the left and the right if necessary.
Small shaving tip : you can clean the shaved surface with cold water to close the pores and avoid irritation. For even more hydration, you can also apply our solid cocoa butter (see here).
Shaving tips for all skin types :
The perfect shaving angle is 30° to the skin. Do not press the razor too hard on your skin. Constant pressure is required for maximum effectiveness. Prefer the beginning of the day to shave. Because in the evening, the skin is more fragile.
How to use your safety razor ?
Nothing's easier ! First thing before first use, unscrew the headstock. Then, detach the comb from the head to slide your blade into it. Put the blade on the head then put the comb back in the right direction. Finally, screw everything back onto the handle. By screwing, the head will tilt the blade slightly to ensure maximum safety while shaving.
After each shave, remove the blade and rinse it, to prevent rust. Let it dry on a cloth high up (away from the little ones, of course!) and put it away until the next use.
How often should the blade be changed ?
The frequency varies depending on the area shaved, the type of hair, the number of blade passes and how you store them between uses. On average, we advise you to change them every 3 to 4 shaves !
Zero waste: no more plastic, no more overconsumption, zero disposable
The average use of a disposable razor is one week (varies according to skin and hair type). For a moderately hard beard, it is advisable to change disposable razors after 6 shaves, i.e. 48 razors/year... The production of 2800 classic disposable razors (from a well-known brand) is equivalent to the fuel consumption of a small-displacement car for 100 km. It's up to you to do the math...
Say goodbye to plastic with this safety razor. Here we are talking about an oak wood handle and a stainless steel head. A razor made to last a lifetime. It replaces tons of disposable razors !
