Over 10 years a Norse razor saves you £715.

Over 10 years a Norse razor saves you £715.

Don’t like reading blogs? The Bottom line is that over a 10-year period a handmade Norse double edge safety razor is £715 cheaper than a Gillette Fusion Proglide. One of the most common questions / statements we get about the handmade Norse double edged razors is: “£40 that is expensive for a razor”.
