An Irish designed product the blade saver featured on the Dragons Den in March 2014.
It is designed to help resharpen blunt razor blades used for shaving.
The blade saver is a handheld battery operated product made with a leather head which rotates along the blades of any razor whatever the make or model. (Batteries are included in the pack)
Blunt razors that would normally be deposited to landfill sites after a short usage period can have an extended life by simply treating with the blade savers for a few seconds and resharpening the blades.
What kind of saving can you achieve with the Blade Saver?
According to the manufactuers the blade saver can extended the lifeline of your razors up to ten times (up to 60 shaves)
It is hard to give an accurate assessment on the type of money one would save with the blade saver per annum as everyone has different shaving habits but lets just assume that one buys mid range refill cartridge blades and each blade works out at 3 euro each.
Then lets assume one shaves 150 times per annum and that they use each blade six times before disposing of it.
This would mean that a person goes through about 25 blades each year which works out at about 75 euro per annum.
Lets now be conservative and assume that the blade saver extends the life time by even 50% of the manufactuers claims. (keeps the blade sharp up to 5 times longer)
Making all the above assumptions 6 razors per annum should be suffice if used in conjunction with the blade saver.
This would save you in the region of €50 every year after the initial outlay to buy the product.
