What is the SHAVENT razor and why is it there?
SHAVENT is an innovative 3-blade swing head razor that combines sustainability and independence with elegance and comfort.
We developed the SHAVENT razor because we were shocked by the amount of waste and plastic we produce when wet shaving year after year. Existing low-waste alternatives such as safety razors or knives did not convince us in our own use and so we developed the SHAVENT razor - sustainability without sacrificing comfort and elegance.
What is the SHAVENT made of and where is it produced?
SHAVENT is made with ❤️ in Germany.
The SHAVENT razor is manufactured using high-quality precision die-cast zinc, a process that is widely used for parts that need to be functional and beautiful at the same time. The surface finish in bright chrome ensures visual brilliance.
While the first SHAVENTs still came from North Rhine-Westphalia, our parts are now cast in Thuringia, carefully polished (with many steps still done by hand!), galvanized (i.e. chrome-plated) and assembled, checked and packaged in Munich.
Which blades fit into the SHAVENT?
One of the great advantages of the SHAVENT are the Standard razor blades.
The so-called "Half Blades" or Single Edge Blades are used
Used in straight razors for decades and are of different brands
and available at very reasonable prices.
So you are not trapped in a blade system, you can
Choose your favorite blade brand freely.
You are in our shop and on all common sales portals,
Drugstores or shaving shops available inexpensively and such
compact that will store for many years in the smallest corner of the
bathroom drawer fits. The unit price is a fraction of the cost of
Interchangeable heads - a blade change only costs a few cents instead of many
Should you "remnants" of conventional, double-edged swords
If you want to use up blades, you can of course do so. You gotta get them in
in this case cut in the middle. It works best if you take them with you
cut with scissors. We advise against breaking because of the
Danger of injury urgently - in addition, a burr is formed when breaking
the blades in the SHAVENT are not optimally aligned.
Is the SHAVENT suitable for everyone?
Our razor offers a perfect, comfortable and safe shave for all sensitive parts of the face and body.
For Boys & Girls & everyone else!
USE & CARE
What do I have to consider when starting?
The Shavent is just as safe as other razors. Simply start with significantly less pressure than usual and feel your way to your new shaving feeling at your leisure.
But of course, as with every razor in the world, razor blades are known to be sharp - so caution is always required when handling them.
We have all the safety instructions and tips for caring for your shavent for you HERE compiled.
Do I have to wet my skin before shaving?
The SHAVENT is a wet razor, i.e., like all wet razors, it only shaves as gently and well as it can on wet skin.
Please do not use a wet razor (the SHAVENT or any other) on dry skin, as this irritates your skin unnecessarily and the shaving result also suffers.
Do I have to use shaving foam with the SHAVENT?
The SHAVENT does without those "gliding strips" used on some drugstore razors, which provide a gliding effect with water for some (often few) shaves. The metal surface of the SHAVENT alone does not slide with water, so you have a firm grip on the handle without rubber.
So for the smoothest shave, it's highly recommended to use something that gives things a boost - with our new one SHAVE & SHOWER Rasurpflege we have developed the perfect companion for you - naturally plastic-free and gentle from head to toe!
But it doesn't matter whether you use shaving gel, foam, soap or shower gel, the main aim is that the SHAVENT glides smoothly and easily over your skin.
Do you use a shaving product that leaves a "squeak" on the skin rather than a creamy film? Then it's perfect for plastcifree shaving, because it tends to reduce the gliding ability and instead of a gentle shave, the razor starts "stuttering".
How do I clean my SHAVENT?
After each shave, simply rinse off under warm, running water. Dismantling is not necessary.
You can do a more thorough cleaning every time you change the blade, for example, by simply rinsing the individual parts under warm water. Be a little careful with the intermediate plates so that they don't bend. Without the blades and the intermediate plates, you can also let the SHAVENT go through the dishwasher to bring it to a high gloss.
If you shave very thick hair or use a very pasty shaving cream, this can be a challenge for a multi-blade razor. With the SHAVENT you don't have to worry about having to throw away blades too quickly - on the contrary! Should the demands become too tough and the SHAVENT cannot transport all the hair backwards normally, you can simply unscrew the screws 1-2 turns, rinse them with warm water if possible, screw them back on and off you go.
Armin will show you here - Of course, you can also rinse it out in a bowl with water that is as warm as possible, which saves water.
Can I also use the SHAVENT with 1 or 2 blades?
Yes, the SHAVENT also works with fewer blades.
We designed the SHAVENT as a 3-blade razor, i.e. with 3 blades we find the shave to be the gentlest and also recommend the "full set". But you can try out for yourself with how many blades shaving is most comfortable for you.
How long do the blades last? How often do I have to change the blades?
That's the Gretchen question that's keeping an entire razor industry alive.
If you read the blogs of replaceable head manufacturers, you will find recommendations for changing frequencies of up to (for us almost unbelievable) 1-2 times a week for daily shaving. Unthinkable what money and waste is used up for interchangeable heads.
Basically, you can change your SHAVENT blades just as often or as little as you do with your previous razor - with the small difference that every change makes a HUGE difference in costs and waste - but you already know that.
Our experience shows that it is best to go by feel. When we no longer feel the shave is "smooth" and notice it starting to pull at individual hairs, we simply swap out our blades.
How does the blade change work?
Very simple 😉 Take out the old blades, put the spacers aside, have new blades at hand and off you go:
First blade, spacer, second blade, spacer, third blade, put on head and gently tighten knurled nuts.
So that you can follow it closely, we have prepared a short video for you blog article .
Is the SHAVENT razor suitable for head shaving / bald head shaving?
The "head shave" is indeed the supreme discipline of shaving - a very thin layer of skin and tissue over a very individually curved bone.
Our "house owner" bald head loves shaving with the SHAVENT - he said he needed about 3-4 shaves in which he slowly and calmly got used to the new shaving feeling and today he doesn't let anything else on his skull - because he thinks his shaving result has never been as smooth as with the SHAVENT.
For head shaving we recommend our "Strong Men, Strong Hair Set".
Just try it out for yourself, take your time and start with little pressure. This is the best way to get a feel for your new head shaver.
Is the SHAVENT suitable for intimate shaving?
Absolutely! Thanks to its flexible oscillating head and three blades, the SHAVENT is also ideal for gently shaving intimate areas - the same precautions apply as with conventional razors, of course.
Here, too, we have the best tips for you in one blog article summarized.
Isn't the SHAVENT handle slippery?
No, just the opposite! The chrome surface of the SHAVENT gives a special grip in combination with wet skin, you can even hear the effect when you "squeak" your finger over the handle.
If your hand gets too much shaving product when you shave, then simply rinse it off when you rinse off the SHAVENT between shaving strokes - and the grip is back!
P.S. Try that too SHAVE & SHOWER Shaving Gel - this can be rinsed off the hands extra quickly and offers a wonderfully light, nourishing shaving basis!

What is the SHAVE & SHOWER care series?
We have one for you Shaving Solid, as well as shaving gel developed in powder form. Our shaving solid is more than a classic "shaving soap" - because soap attacks the protective acid layer of your skin and often leaves it dry and tight. That was out of the question for our shaving care - that's why our shaving care products are soap-free and pH-neutral. They keep the acid mantle of your skin intact and give it a lot of care and moisture.
The shaving gels often come in an unnecessarily large amount of packaging, from a plastic tube to a spray can - that didn't come in the bag for us! Instead, we simply put the shaving gel as a powder in a paper bag.
So we can bring it to your home without plastic, where you just shake it with 200ml of water. And you already have a large portion of light, nourishing and economical shaving gel, without large portions of packaging waste.
Can I have the SHAVENT sent as a gift?
Of course! 😊 The SHAVENT is the perfect gift for shaving lovers, everyone who loves elegant things and above all for everyone who would like to produce less plastic in everyday life and no longer want to be dependent on interchangeable heads.
You can enter a different billing and delivery address. In this way, your order will reach the recipient, but the invoice will arrive in your email inbox.
Gut durchdachte Konstruktion und gute Verarbeitung!
Ein traumhaftes Stück Designkunst, bester Rasierer für Gesicht und Körper den ich jeh hatte, und endlich kein Plastik mehr. Ja vermeintlich teuer, aber jeder Cent lohnt sich.
Schon beim ersten Anfassen und Halten liegt der Rasierer schwer und solide in der Hand.
Ich hatte sofort das Gefühl, dass ich etwas Wertiges für mein Geld bekommen habe.
Das Ergebnis der Rasur ist prima; SHAVENT funktioniert einwandfrei
Ich habe den Shavent Rasierer seit 4 Wochen und bin total begeistert. Die Handhabung ist sehr einfach und das Rasurergebnis ist viel besser als mit den herkömmlichen Rasierern. Gleichzeitig hat man das gute Gefühl, einen Beitrag zur Reduktion des Plastikmülls zu leisten. Für mich gibt es keine Alternative mehr zu Shavent.
Hält was ihr versprochen habt. Benutze die selben klingen bereits zum dritten Mal und sind immer noch sehr scharf.Normalerweise spürt man es sofort auf die Haut wenn irgendetwas kratzt, ist hier aber nicht der Fall. Bin eigentlich Rasierfaul aber seit ich das Teil habe bin ich immer fein rasiert.
Geiles teil. Super
Qualität, Design und Handhabung sind exzellent.
endlich weg von Plastik! Rasierer ist gut zu führen, gründliche Rasur, tolles Design, hochwertige Qualität, mit der Halterung ein schöner Blickfang im Badezimmer, ist sein Geld allemal wert
Ich mag meinen SHAVENT Rasierer sehr. Ich kann ohne Druck über die Haut gleiten und dank der drei Klingen rasiert er sehr gründlich. Der Schwingkopf passt sich allen Konturen super an. Liegt gut in der Hand.
Seit ca. 45 Jahren rasiere ich mich nass. Habe vieles versucht und probiert.
Noch nie hatte ich eine bessere und schonendere Rasur als mit Shavent. Auch meine Frau nutzt den Ausgang für die Beinrasur. Sie hat den empfindliche Haut. Jetzt gibt es keine Hautirritationen mehr. Also klare Empfehlung von uns.
Endlich die Kombination aus sehr guter und hautschonender Rasur und Nachhaltigkeit.
Gleichzeitig ein echter Hingucker.
Der Rasierer liegt gut in der Hand. Ich habe schon so viele Rasierer probiert aber der Shavent ist der beste.
Ich bin voll zufrieden.
Ich rasiere mich nun schon über 40 Jahre mit einem Nassrasierer.
Einfach gesagt: Wow, warum darf ich erst jetzt einen solchen guten Rasierer mein Eigenen nennen. Ich kann Shavent jedem empfehlen. Ganz bestimmt 😀.
Super sanft, super gründlich, super sicher!
Ich benutze seit 5 Jahren, insbesondere aus Nachhaltigkeits- und Kostengründen (kein Plastik, sparsamer Klingenverbrauch), einen Rasierhobel. Der ist zwar auch recht gut, jedoch absolut kein Vergleich zum Shavent mit den drei Klingen und Schwingkopf, der ebenfalls ohne Plastik auskommt. Und ich habe mich mit dem Shavent noch kein einziges Mal geschnitten, ganz im Gegensatz zum Rasierhobel ...
Hallo liebes Shaventteam
Der Rasierer gefällt mir sehr gut, die Rasur hat sofort geklappt. Macht weiter so.
Danke schön, viele Grüße Gerhard
Ich habe einen für meine Tochter und einen für mich bestellt! Wir sind beide super zufrieden, er gleitet sogar an schwierigen Stellen einfach drüber, man hat dabei das Gefühl er schneidet gar nicht und macht dabei ein perfektes Ergebnis
Die Haut ist danach nicht irritiert sondern einfach nur weich 😁
Würde ich jederzeit wieder kaufen!
