Do you often find yourself fumbling to open a new razor cartridge, wondering how the last one got dull as rocks so fast? Didn’t you just change the dang thing, like, yesterday? Razor blades are an item we trash way too often, considering that a quick, easy sharpening is enough to make them as good as new.

Enter a long-overdue gadget called the Razor Saver. Just drag your favorite single or double blade (men’s or women’s) down the runway anytime it gets dull, and your blade will last you for up to 130 shaves. Considering that a refill pack of four razors will cost you nearly as much as the Razor Saver itself ($11.95), it seems worth a shave, I mean, shot, right? Look for the Razor Saver online from sustainable village.
