Double-Edged Safety Razors Ranked by Weight

Ranking by weight in grams


These are single measurements taken from standalone entries in the B&B Shavewiki. They are approximations of a razor's standard weight, and do not account for variations in plating, normal wear and tear, and other specific factors that can change the characteristics of individual razors.

If you are interested in editing current listings or adding razors not listed below, the easiest way to measure weight is with a small digital scale, much like you'd find in a jewelry store, pawnshop, or a smoke shop. Do not hesitate to improve our knowledge base!
