    "removing hair, dead skin cells" wouldn't rinsing with water do the same thing?

    "that dull razors' edges".. a razors edge is dulled by the action of cutting, not by virtue of the debris just sitting there.. removing these things won't make the razor magically sharper..

    Also, sharpening would need to happen on both sides..

    This thing is useless snake oil

    ^ I think the theory is that if there's hair and skin on the blade edge then that will hold water longer before it dries out, with one of the causes of blade dulling being not the shaving itself but rust forming on the edge of the blade.

    Regardless of this product I have read that merely shaking excess water off the blade after rinsing and putting it where it will air dry faster will extend the life of the blade.

    How many fresh razor blades can you buy for $25? Even if it worked, its expensive.

    I've heard you can do the same by rubbing your blade backwards against a pair of jeans for a few passes.

    I didn't notice much of a difference after trying.

    Also these are now $15 for one.

    a shot of vodka in your bathroom cabinet to put your blades in also works, but tends to evaporate (or someone drinks it)

    An old barber's trick is to keep your cartridges after first use in a little jar of witch hazel. It prevents rust (if the blade is submerged) and prolongs the blade life a long time -- I've tried it.
