A unique, modern, twist-to-open, single blade Razor - In other words, The Thorn is a brand new take on the traditional Safety Razor.
A single blade razor with a fixed razor head for use with a single, half razor blade (ie half DE razor blades also called half blades).
The Thorn Edition is a more aggressive version than the original The Twig
. It takes on a bit more, as there is 0.2 mm more air between the blade and the bottom plate. Where the original Twig has a medium aggressiveness, this The Thorn version has a medium + aggressiveness. So it has a little extra bite.
The Twig and The Thorn Razors look completely identical. There's just a small dot on the Thorn edition that sets the design apart from the Twig edition.
The Thorn version is great for men or women who want a closer shave and have more experience using a traditional safety razor. Can be used for shaving facial hair, body hair, head shaving or intimate areas.
It is made with the smallest Razor head on the market, and therefore does not fill the whole world. This makes it extra comfortable for, among other things, intimate shaving, shaving of armpits etc.
The Thorn is a twist-to-open Razor. The Razor head is thus opened and closed by turning the bottom of the shaft, making it very easy to replace the razor blade.
As with other fixed-head Safety Razors, maintain a stable 30-degree angle between the blade and the skin. This is essential for the blade to grab the hairs and shave them off.
That edition has a beautiful gold design with a nice shiny surface.
The Razor is delivered in a recyclable cardboard box.
