FAQ

Here we have put together many answers about the SHAVENT for you. You can also find all information about delivery times and shipping here at "Payment".

It doesn't matter if you don't generate Plastic waste anymore, or simply have enough of being trapped into spending on expensive blade cartridges from drugstore brands - the SHAVENT helps you save with enjoyment and style: gentle and agile as usual, you don't have to do without anything and you also get a piece of jewelry for your bathroom that you will look forward to using every day.

Therefore: "Let's S(h)ave in Style"! 😎

SHAVENT is an innovative 3-blade flex-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 that we use in the world for wet shaving year after year. Existing low-waste alternatives such as safety razors or knifes did not convince us in our own application and so we developed the SHAVENT razor - sustainability without sacrificing comfort and elegance.



The SHAVENT razor is one of the first to combine the convenience of a swing head shave with the sustainability and manufacturer independence of recyclable razor blades. Our goal was to make plastic-free shaving gentle, pleasant and suitable for everyday use - even for everyone who had not yet found the ultimate solution with a classic safety razor in quick daily use.

In addition, the focus is on longevity as a pillar of sustainability! We wanted to develop a device that prevents materials like plastic or rubber from aging by not using these materials.

The SHAVENT is made of die-cast zinc, a material in which in a human life
Material fatigue is not an issue. We create a secure grip through the shape of the handle and grooves in the handle recesses. Its construction, durable joints and spring make it extremely robust. the
Repairability, as a further pillar of sustainability, is consciously made possible.

After years of use, the SHAVENT can easily be dismantled at home, thoroughly cleaned and repaired if necessary.

Why should we throw away a product just because its pen wears out after 10 years?
Spare parts are available from us at low cost.

The SHAVENT razor is made of high-quality die-cast zinc, a process that is widely used for parts that should be functional and beautiful at the same time.

You can find such parts as furniture fittings, stove handles, fittings inside and outside of cars, as housings for devices or high-quality USB sticks in the electronics industry. The surface finish in shiny chrome ensures optical brilliance.

You can also find more information on the properties of zinc and its applications here.

Following the principle of sustainability, when developing the SHAVENT razor, we focused on 2 essential factors: long service life and reparability.

A long service life is achieved through the use of durable materials and intelligent design in every detail.

Due to the age-related, chemical and mechanical changes, plastic simply cannot meet the requirement for a long service life. After a short time it loses important mechanical properties that would be necessary for its function and also becomes visually unattractive.

Zinc, on the other hand, lasts a lifetime. And since the mechanics of the SHAVENT razor are designed accordingly, you can enjoy your SHAVENT oscillating head razor for decades!

Do you want details? Here you have it: The swivel head is rotatably mounted on the handle using specially made screws. The cylindrical sliding surfaces of the screws, without thread or gap, such as exist with split pins, do not cause any wear on the handle. The stainless steel spring was dimensioned so large that it will function reliably for many years. And: if the spring gets tired after years, it can easily be replaced at home. A spare parts kit is available inexpensively in our shop. Simply unscrew the screws between the oscillating head and the handle, dismantle the SHAVENT razor and replace the spring.

If, with a heavy heart, you want to part with your SHAVENT razor after many years, simply dispose of it as metal in the designated recycling points. Since it does not contain any plastic or rubber inclusions, it can be recycled as pure metal.

Zinc recycling is very important. You can find more information, for example here.

Our SHAVENT is, that was important to us, Made with Love in Germany.

While the first SHAVENTs still came from North Rhine-Westphalia, today our parts are cast in Thuringia, extensively polished (with many steps still by hand!), galvanized (i.e. chrome-plated) and assembled, checked and packaged in Munich.

The Shavent is just as safe as other razors. Simply start with significantly less pressure than usual and feel yourself in peace with your new shaving sensation.

But: razor blades are known to be razor-sharp - so you should always be careful when handling them.

We have all the safety instructions and tips for caring for your Shavent HERE compiled.

The SHAVENT is a wet razor, in other words, 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.

The SHAVENT dispenses with the "sliding strips" that are found on some drugstore razors and that provide a sliding effect with water for some (often a few) shaves. The metal surface of the SHAVENT alone does not slide with water, so you have a firm hold on the handle without any rubber deposits.

So for the smoothest shave, it is highly recommended to use something that gives the thing the necessary swing - it doesn't necessarily have to be shaving foam! Everything that is rich enough, i.e. also contains enough fats to form a velvety film on the skin, is ideally suited for this - from shower gel to moisturizing soap to special shaving soap - everything that "slips" is suitable.

Do you use a soap that leaves a "squeak" on the skin rather than a creamy film? This is not so well suited for a shave, because it tends to reduce the lubricity and instead of a gentle shave, a "stutter" arises.

But something of YES!

Our razor offers a perfect, comfortable and safe shave for sensitive areas of the face and body. There is absolutely no reason why these lots should only be on one man. For boys & girls & everyone else!

Best regards from Armin, the SHAVENT inventor: "Believe me, ladies, our face is just as sensitive as your body, even if some of us don't like to admit it." ;-) In this sense...

We made a conscious decision against using the SHAVENT razor in a "Ladies Edition" - SHAVENT does not need a "Pink Tax". Do not pay any more for products that were only "painted" pink, but actually work exactly the same as the respective product "for men"!

We also have the so-called "Pink Tax" an article on our blog written - have a look!

Yes, the SHAVENT razor is ideally suited for a gentle shave in the genital area thanks to its oscillating head and three blades - the same precautionary measures apply as with conventional razors.

Here, too, we have the best tips in one Blog article summarized

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 "in-house" bald head loves shaving with the SHAVENT - he said he needed about 3-4 shaves in which he slowly and quietly got used to the new shaving sensation and today he doesn't leave anything else on his skull - because he does thinks, his shaving result has never been as smooth as with the SHAVENT.

For the head shave, we recommend ours "Strong Men, Strong Hair Set".

Just try it out for yourself, take some time and start with little pressure. This is the best way to get a feel for your new razor for your head.

But of course! The SHAVENT always circumnavigates your contours gently and reliably - what is much more of an issue with thick hair is the right blades!

Our Derby blades are great all-rounders and most of our SHAVENT users (including the team itself) love them. But if you have very strong hair, that sounds like a job for you PermaSharp blades. These absolute professional blades are super sharp and easily tackle even thick hair.

We have ours for you "Strong men, strong hair" Set composed of PermaSharp blades instead of Derby blades.

The chrome surface of the SHAVENT, in combination with wet skin, gives it a special hold. You can even hear the effect when you "squeak" your finger over the handle. 

If your hand gets too much soap while shaving, then simply rinse it off when you rinse off the SHAVENT between the shaving lanes - and the grip is back!

Simply rinse under running water after each shave. Dismantling is not necessary.

You can do a more thorough cleaning every time you change the blade by simply cleaning the individual parts under running water. Be careful with the spacer plates so that they don't bend. Without blades and the intermediate plates, you can also let the Shavent go a round in 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! If the requirements get too tough and the SHAVENT cannot transport all hair backwards normally, you can simply unscrew the screws 1-2 turns, rinse them with water as warm as possible, tighten them again and go on. Armin shows you here - Of course, you can also do the rinsing in a bowl with water that is as warm as possible, this saves water.

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 line". But you can individually try out for yourself how many blades the shave is most comfortable with for you.

One of the advantages of the SHAVENT is that Standard razor blades.

The so-called "half blades" or single edge blades have been used in razors for decades and are available from various brands and at low prices.

So you are not trapped in a blade system, but can freely choose your favorite brand of blades.

These are industrially manufactured single-edged razor blades, which consist of half a "conventional" blade. They are available inexpensively in our shop and on all common sales portals, drugstores or shaving shops. The unit price is a fraction of the cost of replaceable heads.

If you do not have any half blades available, or if you want to use up "leftovers" of conventional, double-edged blades, you can of course do so. In this case you have to cut it in half. It works best if you cut them up with scissors. We strongly advise against breaking it due to the increased risk of injury - in addition, when breaking, a burr occurs that does not optimally align the blades in the SHAVENT.

Please be very careful with this and do not let people do this job who cannot do this job.

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 line". But you can individually try out for yourself how many blades the shave is most comfortable with for you.

This is the crucial question that keeps an entire razor industry alive.

If you read the blogs of interchangeable head manufacturers, you will find recommendations for changing frequencies of up to (for us almost unbelievable) 1-2 times a week for daily shaving. I couldn't imagine what to wear money and garbage consumed for interchangeable heads.

Basically: You can change your SHAVENT blades just as often or rarely as in your previous razor - with the small difference that every change makes a HUGE difference in costs and waste generation - but you already know that.

Our experience shows that we best walk by feeling. Every 2-3 weeks we no longer perceive the shave as "smooth" and you can tell that individual hairs are starting to pull. Then we just exchange our blades.

The women on the team use them a little longer for legs and armpits. For the skin on the face and intimate area, as for every razor, a more consistent change is recommended.

You will see that razor bumps and pimples are a thing of the past when you relax and reach into your pack of 100 razor blades instead of subconsciously tormenting yourself with an old and blunt interchangeable head.

No, it works great in no time and is easy to do. Just take a little time with the first one or two changes and you will quickly get the hang of it. Armin also made a video about it for you here
