A Shavette is a great way for beginners to get into the world of wet shaving. A shavette is simply a straight razor with disposable blades.
This gives several advantages over a traditional straight razor including:
- Do not need to strop the blade before each use
- Do not need to hone the blade... ever
- Do not need to purchase a strop or hone
For a beginner a shavette is a great beginner's razor with the close shave of a straight razor and the ease of disposable razors.
Shavette's still take some time to learn how to shave, as they still use the same technique as straight razors, but their absolute lack of maintenance is a real advantage.
