We believe safety razors perform better than cartridge razors.
Yes, we hedged our verbiage there.

We have our opinions and the opinions of many other men like you. Of course we sell the stuff, so our opinion might seem bias. But we also use our product. And we believe once you use it, you will find the safety razor superior to the cartridge razor as well. Let us give a couple of reasons why
How Many Blades Do You Need Anyways?
Pop quiz! How many blades does it take to cut a strand of hair?
So, why then do cartridge razors have 2, 3, 4, 5, or even 6 blades (We think we have heard of a 7 blader also?).
Let us answer that question with another question.
Before cartridge razors were invented, did every man have a beard?
They used a knife, straight razor, and eventually safety razor.
So why do cartridges razors have more?
The cartridge razor uses the first blade to lift (and cut) hairs, the second to cut them down, the third to clean up after the first two, and so on.
Does it work? Yes.
Is it good for your face? No. The reason why a cartridge razor needs multiple blades is because it has an angle problem. The set angle of a cartridge razor blade does not align with your face. Even if the head moves, the flatness of the head design and the angle of the blades does not work well if there is only one blade. Thus, the multiple blades are added. This solves the cutting problem, but it does not solve the face irritation problem.
So how many blades do you need? If your blade is used at the correct angle, you only need one blade.
How Does A Safety Razor Work?
A double edged safety razor is more effective because it allows us to use that one (really sharp) blade at the angle necessary to cut that hair right the first time. See the diagram below. Credit https://bespokeunit.com/ for their great wet shave content. That is where we got this picture.

Safety Razors Are More Sanitary
As the saying goes. A picture tells a thousand words. The picture above depicts the issue with the multi-bladed cartridge razors perfectly. They are very hard to keep clean.
If you shave, then I do not need to elaborate further. You have seen it. You have tried to deal with it.
A safety razor is different. You have one blade, that blade has plenty of spacing allowing the clean-out to be almost effortless. If you are wet shaving, then you just swirl it around in the sink water and your done!
By the way, what does a sanitary razor mean? It means less skin irritation! See above.
