1. If you are having trouble shaving in tight places like directly under your nose, we recommend shaving at an angle across/against the grain to access any remaining hair.
2. If the razor is too aggressive, leave the bottom blade out and start loading with the middle blade. In this way, The Leaf is adjustable to suit your needs.
3. Let the weight of the razor work it’s magic! Do not apply extra pressure.
4. Always keep your skin and the razor wet while shaving and rinse as you shave. Use a good shave soap for glide.
- Open the razor, unscrewing the back (don’t worry, it can’t fall out!)
- Load the blades (start with the lowest position). Ensure the notches on the blades mate up with the notches on the notches on the razor, and that the blade sits flat.
- Close the razor and finger-tighten the screw on the back to secure the blades.
How long do the blades last?
This can very person-to-person; best thing to do is swap your blades when you feel them starting to dull. On average you can expect 8 to 12 shaves. Some folks swap every week, others every 3 months – so learn how it works for you.
Day to day care – Give your razor a thorough rinse after each use. Ideally, open the head up and rinse any residual soap or hair from inside the razor and blades. Keep stored in a dry place. If you are going to store it in the shower, at least make sure it’s not directly under running water.
Periodic Maintenance – Once a month, or as needed, perform a deep clean. Keep an old toothbrush handy and with a small amount of dish-soap scrub up some bubbly and clean out the nooks and crannies. For a finishing touch, try a dip in rubbing alcohol to disenfect and wicke away the moisture from the cleaning.
Deep Clean – If you find that your razor has tough soap residue, or hard water stains: prepare a bath for the razor made up of 1 parts vinegar, 1 parts water. Let the razor soak for 10 minutes. The vinegar will break down mineralized water and soap residue. Following the bath, scrub the razor as described above, and buff with a soft towl or cloth.
What do you do with used blades?
When you swap your blade for a fresh one, simply store the used blade in the Leaf Blade Recycling tin.
The tin will hold a few years worth of blades before being full.
How do you recycle the blades?
Simply secure the tin closed (wrap it in old newspaper for extra security, or rubber bands) and drop it in the post back to Leaf Shave at:
