Title: Leaf Razor
Post by: Dragon on October 02, 2021, 12:30:17 AM
Someone mentioned the Leaf razor as part of a post on here.  I was intruiged by the plastic free aspect and that it could use and so bought one.  Wow, closest shave I've ever had.  The hand feel is great its a nice weight.  I was very impressed.  When I went to chnage the blades one of the magnets came loose. I wrote to leaf and despite the fact that i had bought it from a supplied in the UK they immediately shipped me a new razor from the USA, so fantastic customer service.  As I said, all in all very impressed.

What do the magnets do and why are they a necessary part of the razor?

They are located in the head and help hold the blades in position, mainly as you are fitting them.  I am not sure they are essential and i could place them back where they should be and the razor worked fine. Howeveri mentioned it as i was impressed by the customer service.

My blades get actual rust on them sometimes and being a non-ferrous metal, shouldn't rust or stick to magnets at all so I'm wondering if we're actually buying "blue blades" that are disguised as stainless steel blades.  Anyway, I attribute my hesitation of getting a leaf razor is primarily due to the magnet thing because the blades shouldn't under any circumstance stick to it.  Now I'm all mess up!
