The Leaf Razor

01. Review Before Use

- Before using your Leaf Razor, read through these instructions. If you have any questions about how to load, use or care for your razor reach out to us at hello@leafshave.com before use.

- Exercise caution when handling blades and using the razor, the blades are sharp.

- Please keep the razor and blades out of reach of children.

02. Loading Blades

- Open the blade holder by turning the screw counterclockwise (don't worry, it can't fall out!).

- Load the blades (lower, middle, then top blade). Ensure they sit flat, matching the notch on the side of the blade with the notch on each blade level (this is important!).

- Load all three blades for the closest shave possible. For sensitive skin or areas, remove the bottom blade to dial things back.

- Finger-tighten the blade holder by turning the screw clockwise until it tightens. Note, if the screw doesn't tighten and just keeps spinning, discontinue use and reach out to Leaf.

- Watch this short clip showing a blade load.

- Watch this short clip on identifying a mis-load.

03. Enjoy your Shave

- Don't apply any extra pressure, let the weight of the razor do the work (don't press hard!).

- If the razor is too aggressive, remove the bottom blade to dial things back.

- Rinse the razor as needed — the razor and skin should always be damp.

- Feel your skin to find places you may have missed and go over them again. For even closer results, repeat the process shaving against the natural direction of hair growth.

Rinse Thoroughly

Open up your razor and rinse it thoroughly inside and out after use. To get the longest life from your blades, pat them dry between uses as well. Keep the razor away from water in between uses.

Clean Gently

If your razor needs a little TLC (maybe once every few months), use a drop of dish soap and a soft brush (like an old toothbrush), and scrub it all over in the nooks and crannies.

Deep Cleanse

For tougher soap build-up or hard water stains, soak your razor in a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water for up to 10 minutes. Then scrub with a drop of dish soap and a soft brush (like an old toothbrush) before towel drying.
