ONEBLADE CORE Single Edge Shaving Razor $32.90 USD (~$48 AUD) Delivered @ One Blade Shave

91
ONEBLADE10

The award winning ONEBLADE single edge razor for possibly the best shave of your life.

Includes aluminium display stand

Includes 10 Feather FHS10 single edge blades. These blades are twice the thickness of a double edge blade and much more sharper similar to a straight razor. These blades are also more expensive than double edge but cheaper than cartridges and the shave is much better. I believe that the FHS5 is the same blade in a 5 pack. Feather holds the intellectual property to these blades which they purchased from Gillette a long time ago and there is no other choice of blade.

The premium ONEBLADE GENESIS model retails at US $399 and this model which is the same design and uses the same blade but different material is on sale at $19.95 minus 10% using the code, which is a much better price point for anybody to try out.

Shipping to Australia remains the same if you order multiple units to use as gifts in the future.

There is nothing else to compare this razor with either cartridge razors or double edge safety razors.

    Not disputing the discount, but I would advise anyone interested in this to do extensive research. Opinions of the OneBlade are totally polarized among "razor enthusiasts" and they spend a lot of money on marketing.

    Also, of OPs two reviews, the first includes multiple affiliate links to the OneBlade website and the second is for a different product from the same brand.

    There is nothing else to compare this razor with either cartridge razors or double edge safety razors.

    I couldn't agree more…

        $200 - Gillette Fatboy
        $200 - Feather AC teak scales
        $210 - KAI folding straight razor

        •  

          Lucky for me, after feeling the razor and a nice brush set, I didn't buy anything else despite looking, and eventually kinda got over it.

          Recently I got 5 straight razors from early 20's and 30's that need a little love, and a couple Gem razors I've yet to properly identify. Restoring them will keep me busy.

          •  

            @Salmando: I haven't even added in what I paid for the antique shop buys. I have at least 20 straights that are begging for my restoration and a handful of single edges along with some DE in rotation. If they were all restored and in working order, I can almost go one year without repeating my handles (assuming I use one razor per week)

    I've got a Philips Oneblade that I use with a cheap beard hair catcher and I'm never going back. No water, no cream, no mess, no fuss and it's fast.

      that I use with a cheap beard hair catcher

      Do you use this in the car?

    •  

      Agreed. Got the fluro green Oneblade off Amazon and it’s fantastic. Never going back to blades.

      It's an amazing innovation considering the current market. Not personally going to switch over anytime soon, but the fact Gilette and Schick haven't got any alternative is really astounding to me.

    •  

      Yeah with you there. Got mine last year and I'm huge on it. I have sensitive skin that flares up with razors so the oneblade is perfect for me.

    •  

      I've got a oneblade. Tbh I still don't get what's great about it.

      I went back to my wahl and mach 3.

    •  

      Another fan of the Philips OneBlade here - sensitive skin - this one has been my best option. Amazon have deals on both them and the blades regularly. Plus I travel for work and this one makes for an easy travel option.

    •  

      Yeah Philips OneBlade is great. I like the beard hair catcher :)

    If anyone tries this and ends up with a bit of a sliced face, maybe try a different razor blade before chucking the whole thing out. I can't speak for this razor in particular, but feather blades are pretty sharp, and getting the best shave means finding a blade that works for you. Look for a sample pack and see what works, because wet shaving can be way cheaper in the long run compared to buying something like a mach 3 razor and having to pay through the nose for cartriges. If you find a winning blade a pack of 100 blades can be had for about 20 dollars delivered (probably cheaper seeing as this is a single blade razor).

    Just don't treat it like a hobby and buy a ton of shaving soaps and brushes if you wanna save some cash. That's an expensive hole to fall into…

      What sample packs are there for single sided razor blades? This razor seems to lock you into Feather. Think I'll stick to Russian double sided razor blades. Feathers are way too sharp for me.

      •  

        I think the other poster thought this deal was a double sided safety razor. Having said that, you can get sample packs with single sided razors on eBay. I would personally vouch for Derby Premium but I haven't tested that many varieties of single sided razors.

      •  

        Yep, I've done a bit more reading, seems that if you're not into modifying other brands (seems a bit of a hassle) you're locked into using their feathers.

    • +1 vote

      The Feather blades are really something else. Sample pack is a good idea, though you should give each variety a good few tries. I'd personally recommend the import Astra Superior blades; you can get them for about 15c each and they're plenty sharp.

      •  

        I actually bought a box of 100 Astra blades back when this style of shaving first piqued my interest. I intended to try more but honestly I was satisfied enough with them that I didn't even bother trying anything else. My Mrs even uses them to shave her legs now (after a bit of practice) because they're just so cheap.

    Only Feather manufactures the blade that is compatible with this razor.

    any good razors for someone with razor burn / razor bumps?

      Can't personally comment on the Gillette link. Do you use an aftershave with alcohol? This massively helped me. I now use a 70% dilution of ethanol to wash my razor and as an aftershave and only get bumps/razor burn if I rush my shave.

      •  

        no i never have, i've only developed this problem very recently so im open to all ideas/suggestions. The aftershave balm was one of the things i was considering for sure so tyvm for that input, appreciate it!

        • +1 vote

          No worries. If you want to give it a try, the Imperial Leather one is sold at most supermarkets and you can get it for $5~ on special. The fragrance is a bit "old fashioned" but if it works for you, any more expensive one with alcohol should be fine.

        •  

          ignore anything from Gillette IMO.

          I used to get razor bumps like crazy and the best combination I found to avoid it was a classic Double-edge safety razor (mine's an Edwin Jagger, but there are lots of options) paired with Astra blades (very sharp, but not so sharp you take the top layer of skin off like feathers), a full wet lather with a brush, and perhaps most importantly of all, this aftershave balm: https://www.speick.de/en/products/men-active/product/after-s...

          I don't have the thickest beard in terms of density, but the individual hairs are like steel wool. One double-edged razor blade gives you twice as much milage as a cartridge with 5 blades and is about 1/20th of the cost. Keeping your blade sharp so that it cuts instead of pulls your beard is critical in my opinion.

      1) Dry shave with Philips Oneblade first to get hair as minimally small as possible.
      2) Use TriShave 3IN1 Anti-Rash Shave Creme ($6 Coles) which I've found to be the best.
      3) Wet shave with Gillette Fusion ProGlide 3-in-1 Power Styler Shaving Razor which vibrates and seems to help reduce rashes over the manual ones.
      4) Apply layer of Clearasil Rapid Action Pimple Cream which has salicylic acid that reduces swelling and soothes skin in couple hours. NO AFTERSHAVE.

      Ideally do this last thing at night before bed. In morning shower with charcoal face scrub and all sorted for the week. Rince repeat following weekend. Give it a try.

      Stop shaving so often. Seriously, it's terrible for your skin.

    •  

      Hey, had the same problem. Any multi-blade cartridge makes it worse. Forget the alcohol aftershave, or moisturisers - they don't do shit.

      Get yourself a double sided safety razor and some decent blades. I use feather blades, but as someone mentioned above they are stupid sharp and depending on the razor you get a potential hazard.

      Since shaving with a single blade with lots of space, I've very rarely got razor burn, definitely changed my life.

      The savings are huge too. Got 200 blades for about $50, and they last as long or longer than the cartridges.

      Can't really recommend a razor. Guess I own 3 now, but only ever used my feather ds2. The feather is excessively expensive (I paid $300, with a stand. Don't get the stand!) but I love it, somewhat a mild shave so I don't have to worry too much about cutting myself.

      •  

        Forget the alcohol aftershave, or moisturisers - they don't do shit.

        Lots of good info in your comment but this is a bit bold. I've almost always used a double sided safety razor and preferred Feather blades for years, and I find a daily moisturiser and alcohol face wash make a world of difference. There's a lot of variance in skin types.

    •  

      i cant use non-electric razors because theyve always given me horrible burn marks. i use an electric one with 3 circles and i havent had burn marks since. no water, no cream.

  • +4 votes

    I haven't used this but…
    I use a standard safety razor. A 10 pack of blades costs $5, the initial stainless steel shaver was $25.

    One you learn not to cut yourself (Pretty easy), it costs you roughly $20 a year to have a perfectly shaven face (assuming you use the blades multiple times - I use mine 4 - 5 before replacing).

    Could someone explain the $400 price tag?

      well, we did also just have a box of socks for $400 down from $650 or so as a "bargain" too lmao

    This ‘bargain’ reads like an infomercial, really not sure how this is anything but marketing baloney…

    It certainly doesn’t strike me as a bargain & these reviews by self titled ‘sharpologists’, I mean this sentence sums up their validity - “Sharpologist may earn an advertising or referral fee for purchases using our links by being an affiliate.”

    Also, ‘sharpologist’ really? Come on & 14.95US postage for a razor?!?

  •  

    I switched over to Merkur double edge safety razor a few years ago.

    Prior to that I used various Shick, Gillette and electric shavers.

    The safety razor does a better job. Clean shave, no burns or rashes and it's cheaper.

    Initially purchased a sample razor pack to see what suits my face best. For me it was the Astra brand.

    I use pre shave and aftershave (not the supermarket stuff) as part of the process which helps prevent those burns and rashes.

    •  

      I picked up a Rockwell 6S, via their Kickstater campaign. Used a sample set of blades and settled on the Astra blades (100 blades for around $20 from eBay, IIRC)
      I was given Maca Root shave cream from the Body Shop, and a nice badger hair shave brush; nice combination.
      Recently added a Wahl Razorpit from this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/508788
      Seems to work as suggested in keeping blades sharp.

    $28 for three ten-packs of replacement blades? Lmfao.

      Balls and clippers go together like a chainsaw and Gladwrap.

      The Philips Oneblade is great for the package since it doesn't actually have a blade, it just vibrates. There's no chance of nicks and spilling your marbles.

    Ok, shaving after 40 plus years someone gave me the best tip.
    Shave immediately after showering, do not dry your face after shampooing/washing/rinsing then using a blade razor (any kind i use a bic disposable) shave away. Do not use any soap or gel or oil (tried them all) as it just puts chemicals on your face that cause the irritation. I have sensitive skin and get almost no rash from doing it this way. I also use dermaveen afterwards but it's not really needed. No Rash - No Ingrown Hairs - No expensive chemicals.
    Why not just shave in the shower? Because i have tried both ways and this way definitely works for sensitive skin. Try it you have nothing to lose.

    •  

      +1. As someone with a thick, fast growing beard I use the old original bic disposable single blade and always shave after a shower. It works on 1 day, three day even 12 day growth. They cost cents each and last a few weeks (we are on ozbargain). No aftershave. Why bother with anything else.

  •  

    so this is nothing to do with the Philips OneBlade?
