Bolin Webb designs and makes razor handles with Gillette blades. We have three ranges. The first is our R1 range, which is fitted with the 3-blade Mach3 razor cartridge. Our X1 and Generation ranges are fitted with the 5-blade Fusion Proglide cartridge. All our razors are supplied in attractive gift boxes. SHOP NOW
Both razors are fitted with a Gillette Fusion Proglide blade for the closest shave. That's where the similarity stops. The X1 razor holds heavier the hand and has a particular elliptical shape. The magnetic stand is particularly special, making for a great design display in the bathroom. The Generation razor is lighter and made from one material only: aluminium with an especially robust yet distinctive anodised finish in four colours.
Our razor handles are made mainly from metals: zinc for the R1 and X1 handles and stands, and aluminium for the Generation handle and stand. The R1 and X1 handles also have elastomer grips to improve comfortable handling.
In our view, Gillette blades are the best in the world. They will last for several shaves, typically well over ten times and probably longer. Much depends on the nature of a man’s beard – a stronger beard will wear a blade down more quickly than a lighter beard. Change the blade when it tugs or becomes uncomfortable to use.
Bolin Webb razors were designed primarily with men in mind, as are the Gillette blades we use. At the same time, women can of course use Bolin Webb products, either with the blades we use or with Gillette Venus blades.
Our razors have been specially designed for their handling, their look and appearance. They are built to last and are not meant to be discarded. The superior design of our razors is the reason Bolin Webb continues to win design and brand awards. The Gillette blade provides a superior shaving experience, and replacement blades are widely available. SHOP NOW
Usage and care
Bolin Webb razors are for wet shavers. The beard, stubble or shadow should be softened before the shave and the blade should be sharp. Your choice of shaving skincare, for example a cream or a gel, with also have a big influence on how you experience and enjoy your shave. Please see our blog “How to Wet Shave”
We do not recommend a specific shaving skincare product to use with our razors. There are many different options and the choice is very individual. A man will typically have a favourite already, be it a shave cream, a gel or something else.Please see our blog “Choosing Between Shaving Foam, Cream or Gel”
Much depends on the nature of a man’s beard – a stronger beard will wear a blade down more quickly than a lighter beard. Change the blade when it tugs or becomes uncomfortable to use. Please see our blog to see the differences between blades.
After shaving with a Bolin Webb razor, we recommend you rinse both blade and handle with warm water after every use, to remove any excess cream or foam and keep the blade clear. Please see our blog “How do I take care of my shaving razor?”
You can use razors on sensitive skin, although we recommend anyone who feel they are vulnerable should seek medical advice first. A skincare product such as a shave cream or gel can also impact the skin. A R1 razor with a Mach3 cartridge has fewer blades that a X1 or Generation razor with a Fusion Proglide cartridge, which shaves especially closely.
Safety and precautions
Bolin Webb has designed razor stands and a protective silicone case to store razors, either in the bathroom or when travelling.These award-winning solutions have been especially designed to protect the razor handle and blade, to prevent damage to either. Please see our accessories page
Firstly, we prefer you do not cut yourself at all. And any cut or nick should be very slight.The best way to prevent a cut is to be sure to soften your beard with warm water, the razor blade is not blunt, and to shave carefully in front of mirror. Should a cut occur, several tips are at hand.We find this GQ report especially helpful
The sharp razor blades are encased in a plastic molding to ensure that the cutting edge is limited to the greatest extent. This is by far the most important safety feature of cartridge blades, particular when compared with traditional single flat blade safety razors. Gillette blades are also fitted with lubrication strips to smoothen the shaving experience.
