After becoming disillusioned with the cost of Gillette Fusion blades going well north of two quid a blade, I tried cheaper alternatives, but didn't get the closeness I wanted. Several online influencers extolled the virtues of the safety razor, for a close shave and the dirt cheap blades, so I thought i'd give it a go, only to cut myself to ribbons. I'm probably just too cack-handed. What if, I thought, there was a razor that you could stack the cheap safety razor blades to make a multi-blade razor like a cartridge, but with little waste and a negligable ongoing cost. Enter the Leaf. Exactly what I was looking for. I'd always used an electric razor to shave my head, but I've even started using this and I haven't nicked myself once. Yes, the size of the head makes it a bit awkward to shave under the nose, but I just go across both ways and it's sorted. I really can't praise it highly enough.
