Speed Razor Review
Speed Razor is a hand-held device that allows you to quickly shave body hair. It sports a different design than that of traditional razors, as it is held between the three centermost fingers and moved across the skin. There is a razor on each side, each with four blades. Thus at any given time you are shaving with a total of 8 blades. Once you properly grip Speed Razor, you simply move it along the skin in a stroking motion.
Although Speed Razor is new, the idea behind it is not. I recall using a nearly identical item many years ago to shave my head. It’s a different sensation, and takes a bit of a learning curve to get a feel for how to properly use it. In my case, I have a slight lump on the top of my head that I continually shaved over and sliced the skin almost every time. Eventually I had to ditch this type of item for a more traditional razor. Depending on which body part you plan to shave, your results may vary. Different contoured areas will yield very different results.
Speed Razor is ideal for most areas of the body, including torso, chest, head, legs, and arms. It’s not meant for the face or neck.
Overall, I think Speed Razor seems a bit gimmicky, but there will no doubt be customers who swear by it. It isn’t clear yet if you can buy replacements separately, or if they can only be added to new orders. The lack of local availability could be an issue.
With the mandatory double offer and nearly $10 in nonrefundable shipping fees, I’d probably wait until this arrives in stores. That is problematic, however, as this appears to be a test marketed item, so if there aren’t enough initial purchases for this online offer, it may never make it into full production to reach store shelves.
Perhaps the closest item I’ve found to Speed Razor is the Halftime Razor, which is a relatively unknown razor that sports a very similar design to that of Speed Razor. Also similar is the more well-known Headblade, which only has a single razor, but performs similarly.
