Pacific Shaving Blade Oil Triples Life of Razor Blades
When I originally reviewed the Pacific Shaving Company's shaving cream, I mentioned that I was also trying out the Blade Oil, and then posted my results with it.
In the review I put up about the Blade Oil, I mentioned that I had gone 14 days on the same razor blade and it was still sharp enough for a shave.
Here's my update:
Using my Merkur Safety Razor, and applying Pacific Shaving Company's Blade Oil to it after each shave, I managed to get a total of 19 shaves on one double edged razor blade! That's 3 weeks of shaving (I skip a shave about once a week), which means that the Blade Oil tripled the life of the razor. I usually go through one blade a week, which is cheap (and less wasteful), but I'm jazzed to find a way to stretch them even further.
I don't normally use a multiple blade razor, so I can't say for sure if you could get the same mileage from them, but I imagine you can. This is one product that I can get behind 100%, and it's under $10.

I am not saying it doesn't help But when I did shave I found that placing my razor in a jar with alcohol also vastly extended it's life. I would guess anything that prevented oxidation would work. Try baby oil and I would guess it would also do the job.... Not saying the product does not work, just saying I am not sure it is unique in its properties. thank you. Charles
