At 4.5” in length, the Butterfly XL gives you more grip for your shave. Why a longer handle? Simply put, it’s a matter of preference.
The Butterfly offers the easiest solution for replacing your blade with a quick bottom twist to secure it. Speaking of replacing blades, Albatross has a blade take back program that upcycles the blades into reusable cutlery!

- Delivers a close, razor burn-free shave
- Built to last with a high-polished finish (no more rust!)
- Comes with 10 blades, a hemp storage bag & envelope for used blades
- Fits all standard double-edge safety razor blades

- Twist the bottom of the shaver handle to open the wings of the blade holder.

How to shave:
- Wet hair with warm water.
- Lather shaving cream onto skin
- Hold the blade at a 30 degree angle and let the weight of the handle do the work. Do NOT pull the razor across your skin like you would with a plastic disposable razor.
- Use short strokes, about 2 inches long, especially when you first switch to using a safety razor.
- Finish with after shave ointment or lotion.

How to take care of your razor:
- Rinse all the soap/ hair/ gunk from your razor after each use.
- Shake your razor to dry it. Using a towel to dry will make your blades duller.
- Ensure your razor is stored in a dry spot to increase the life of your blades.
- If you notice any corrosion, rub that spot vigorously with a terry cloth towel, or a small piece of emery cloth.
- Ensure your razor is clean and dry to make it last longer!
