The Feather Nape & Body Razor: A Razor that Stands Alone - How to HoldThere are many shaving razors available on the market. There are cartridge razors which often have multiple blades and are used at home for both men and women for shaving legs, arm pits, face and more. Then you have the double edge razor or safety razor which gets a closer shave than a cartridge razor and it operates on a single blade. It’s more eco-friendly and the blades are cheaper than cartridge blades. But it has a bit of a learning curve. And finally, you have the straight razor which gives the closest shave of the three. The straight razor uses a single blade. The handle either folds or has a straight handle. The straight razor is what’s used by barbers to do shaves, lineups, sideburns and to create crisp lines. There are many brands that carry a version of these 3 types of razor handles.

But then there is the Feather Nape & Body Razor. This razor is unique in that it does not easily fall in any of these three types of razors. It’s most closely related to the straight razor. However, it’s not meant to do full face shaves. The Feather Nape & Body Razor is a small-bodied folding shaving razor which houses a guarded blade. Its small nature allows it to be very useful for detailed work and to address small areas. This razor is called the Nape & Body Razor because it’s meant to shave the nape area and small areas of the body such as sideburns, eyebrows and even bikini line.

The razor only uses guarded replaceable blades so it can be used by hairstylists. Great for using on short men and women’s haircuts around the neckline or stray hairs around the face, this razor does the final touches that can make or break the haircut. Everyone who has short hair loves to feel their neck after a haircut. And they love it when their neck is super soft and smooth.

While the Feather Nape & Body Razor is generally used by professionals in the salon or shop, it’s possible for home users to use it at home to clean up their own neck or small areas that need maintenance between haircuts. Because the blades are guarded, this makes it safe for anyone involved. Whether you’re shaving yourself or someone else, the guard helps prevent unnecessary cuts and nicks. But don’t get us wrong, the blades are sharp and will shave smoothly. The blades and handle are made in Japan and come as 10 blades per cartridge.

To use, simply spray JATAI Blade Glide or other shaving lotion or clear shaving gel over the

skin. If you don’t have a clear shaving gel, be sure to wipe before you shave. Then, shave the area. Always use some sort of lubricant when shaving to avoid skin irritation. You should never shave on dry skin with any razor.

Some people use the Feather Styling Razor to clean up the nape area. While this works, if you want a much closer shave, a Feather Nape & Body Razor would be a better choice. Barbers who don’t want to use a traditional straight razor can also opt to use the Nape & Body Razor.

The Feather Nape & Body Razor is a unique razor with a specific purpose. Its beauty lies in that it’s very good at one thing…detailed shaving in small areas. If you’re looking for a razor that can do these things, look no further. The Feather Nape & Body Razor can be purchased by itself or in a kit. The kit includes the handle, a pack of blades and a 2oz. bottle of JATAI Blade Glide shaving lotion. You can see the kit here.
