View Full Version : How to load a Shavette
11-13-2006, 08:26 PM
I just purchased a Shavette from classicshaving.com as I wanna try and shave with a straight razor but it didn't come with instructions on how to load the blade. I can't seem to figure out how to open it to insert the blade.
I appreciate any help.

First thing--while a razor blad is still in the wrapper, break the blade in half (long direction, so that you end up with two full length blades). Next pull the red insert out of the shavette (it should slide right out). Open the red insert, and you should see one side that has notches on it. Place the blade inside the insert and use the notches to align and hold the blade in place. Carefully close the red insert (be sure the blade is still in place) then slide the insert back into the shavette holder (the insert will only slide in in one direction). If you are still having problems let me know, and I'll see if I can dig out the camera. Good luck!

Got it..Thank you so much. I was trying to pull it down instead of sliding it out.
