Is safety razor better than Gillette?
Altogether, the Safety Razor outclassed the modern Gillette Fusion not only in terms of the quality of the shave but especially with regard to price and eco factors. Also, its worth noting that if you are a traveler who uses carry-on baggage exclusively, you may carry on a Gillette Fusion but not a safety razor blade.
Is a safety razor actually better?
Shaving with a safety razor reduces skin irritation, shave bumps, and ingrown hairs that are common with cartridge or electric razors. The main reason is that with a safety razor you only have one blade against your skin at any time. The fewer times that you rake your face with a blade, the happier it is going to be.
Which is better straight razor or safety razor?

Do barbers use safety razors?
The straight razor was the only real razor for men until Gillette invented the safety razor in the early 1900s.

Why are they called cut throat razors?
