EverBlade stops corrosion of your razor blades

A few months ago – shortly after I reviewed the RazorPit blade cleaner, I received an odd package from the company Greeneverblade. As I opened it, I found a black piece of plastic, designed to hold a standard cartridge razor like Gillette or Shick. But where the blades were to be put, the plastic was replaced with what seemed to be a flat piece of cupper. The EverBlade claimed to make my razor blades last longer! How? Why? Really? Read on!

Can the EverBlade make your razor blades last longer?

So this is how it works… When your razor is not in use, you put it to rest on the EverBlade with the blades on top of the metal part. That's all. No cleaning, nothing to switch on, nothing to do at all… You can sit down and watch the EverBlade work. But it's quite boring, as it doesn't do anything you can see. It doesn't even make a noise. In fact, all this is why I didn't really believe in this product when I received it. But you know what? It worked! And still works!

The single blade I used for this review (a Gillette Fusion cartridge) worked perfectly for nearly 35 shaves! That's more than I got from the RazorPit cleaner! And nearly ten times what I get from a normal cartridge!

I am not going to get into too many details about how the EverBlade actually works. Chris Wilson from the company behind the Everblade, made a long explanation to me about magnetic fields and energy bouncing back and forth between the razor and the EverBlade. But I thinks it's even simpler. The EverBlade works as an anode for the razor, causing the metal on the EverBlade to corrode instead of the metal on the razor blades. If you really (and I mean REALLY!) want to read about anodes, check Wikipedia on anodes. Otherwise – just be happy finding a product that actually works!

The EverBlade I got will fit most modern cartridge razors. I had a problem with the new ProGlide blades, as they are slightly larger than others – but hey, the EverBlade guys just changed the design. A few days ago, a new version of the EverBlade was launched, and it will fit the ProGlide as well!

All in all, even though I was truly skeptical, the EverBlade surprised me with impressive results. It's reasonably priced, and it seems to do a good job. At least with my Fusion blades. The Everblade is currently sold at  $14.95 on Amazon.com  (updated december 2011). I haven't seen it in any European stores yet.

    If this theory really works, just get a negatively charged magnet and set your razor on it. Don’t waste your money on crap like this.

    1. You’re right… The “just get a negatively charged magnet” is easy for those who know where to get it. For most people, it will be much easier to just buy a product which just need to be unwrapped and used… 🙂

    Negatively charged magnet? huh?

    Seriously, a slab of any metal below steel in the table at https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Galvanic_series should have the same effect — though I’m not sure whether aluminium will give a good enough contact due to oxide layers on its surface.

    I’ve been using a method for extending the life of blades by about three times – from 6 shaves to 20 shaves. This is achieved by applying a very thin film of lubricant (castor oil or petroleum jelly work well) two or three times duringthe shave. This reduces friction (hence the longer life) and makes for a smoother, more comfortable shave.

    Is there any product out there to extend the life of disposable multi blade shavers?

    1. Good to hear from you, Ken. You can easily use products like the RazorPit or EverBlade for this. It is hard to predict how much you will be able to extend the life of the blade, as it depends on the quality of the blade in the first place along with some other factors like the distance between the blades etc.

        Hans – if you had to buy either EverBlade vs RazorPit, which one would you choose?

          I would go for Razorpit. I can’t tell for sure that it performs better, but I actually believe more in the cleaning process in the Razorpit than the “magnetic magic” of the Everblade. My experience with the Razorpit has been quite good, and I would rather have a good result with a product I personally believe in than a slightly better result with a product I don’t really understand.

            Ok Hans. Let me report on what I have done. Maybe not fiscally responsible but I am 100% convinced it is very very effective and not vodoo. I bought both …and use both. RazorPit cleaning followed by drying the blade by damping on a towel and then placing in the EverBlade . I am a happy camper.

    I too have always thought to myself that there must be a way to either buy cheaper blades for my razor or extend the life of the blades. I generally manage 4 – 6 shaves before I find the shave uncomfortable as I have quite sensitive skin and without buying fake blades, which would no doubt do more damage than good I was at a loss! Now on your advice I have just purchased the Everblade and would like to thank you for the review as it has deinfitely put more money in my pocket even after the first two months of purchase.

    I would quite like to see a review on the top types of shaving foams/gels if you have a suggestions list?
