Most companies that make razors for men have adopted the one-more-blade mentality. Practitioners of this methodology can solve any problem simply by adding another layer of steel. You can see their work in every commercial break. Rarely can you sit through an entire basketball game without being sold the ‘shaviest shave ever.’ In contrast, the ZINC adjustable razor lets its single, super-sharp blade do all the talking. This beautiful device allows you to choose between a clean shave and a neat trim.

Smooth Every Shave

It was only a few decades ago that our fathers and grandfathers would use safety razors each morning. With one double-edged blade, you could remove the overnight stubble with ease. While modern multi-blade razors promise something smoother, few seem to deliver anything better. What’s more, you can easily spend a small fortune on refills.

The ZINC razor couldn’t be more different. It combines modern materials and design with traditional shaving techniques. The razor offers three different settings, meaning you can choose to tame your stubble or shave it all off.

Best of all, this thing uses old-fashioned stainless steel blades that repel dirt and oil. As a result, you never get a clogged razor.

Old and New

The folks who designed ZINC call it a “revolutional classic.” Yes, they made a new word to describe it.

That seems fair enough, given ZINC’s unique blend of new and old. The design can be categorized as futuristic. As its name would suggest, the razor is made from high-quality zinc alloy. It feels reassuringly solid in your hand, and the metal is resistant to corrosion.

On the handle, a vibrant button allows you to switch between the different shaving heights. The lowest setting provides an incredibly clean shave, without causing uncomfortable razor bumps.

Meanwhile, the 1.1mm setting is useful for tidying up your neck and the top of your cheeks. To maintain your light beard, you can use the 2.4mm setting.

Double Edge

Like traditional safety razors, ZINC operates using one double-edged blade. The stainless steel shrugs off grime, and you can easily rinse the razor under running water. Whereas razors with multiple blades tend to trap hair, ZINC never clogs up.

In addition, these benefits come with a tiny price tag. While some manufacturers charge $4 for every new cartridge, you can use ZINC with any 10-cent blade. These blades are better for the environment, too.

“ZINC razor encompasses a contemporary sleek design and ergonomic innovation…Made from quality zinc alloy, ZINC feels solid and weighty in your hand.”

“ZINC can be adjusted effortlessly for the best style, allowing for 3 trimming lengths (0mm, 1.1mm, 2.4mm) by just sliding the button back and forth.” — ZINC on Kickstarter
