Classic cool and plastic free, just like grandpa’s razor.
The key phrase for this steel safety razor set by Albatross is “take back.” Because it has two meanings. One is very literal. When you’re done using razor blades (this starter set comes with 10), Albatross will take them back. It’s an upcycling process that begins by melting used blades into molten steel, working in some new steel, then making an entirely new item (their first Take Back Program product was a cutlery set). The second meaning of take back is more nostalgic. When you handle the heft of this steel butterfly razor handle, it’s hard not to feel romantic for a bygone ear, for a time before the proliferation of plastic products. But with this Albatross razor set, that feeling isn’t fleeting, as this product and the Take Back Program behind it are a commitment to a future that's plastic-free.
