Are Stainless Steel Razors Better?

Last updated:

When selecting a razor blade, the ideal material depends on your priorities. Stainless steel offers low-maintenance convenience and durability, making it perfect for busy individuals. However, it may not be the sharpest option. Conversely, carbon steel caters to shaving enthusiasts who prioritize exceptional sharpness and enjoy the traditional shaving ritual, but requires more care due to its susceptibility to rust.
