Help us spread the word, share with friends:

We wanted to offer a basic, sustainably made handle to go along with Mach3™ blades — the razor blades that we, and many others see as the best blades available.  

They’re not fancy, offer good value (especially when coupled with our “non sanctioned” technique to extend blade life 3-5x), and are made with the best steel and sharpest blades for a clean, smooth shave — and long-lasting blade.

How to use

  1. Slip the Akamai Razor Handle into a Mach3™ cartridge until it clicks.
  2. Need more razors? You can get them here.


  • Our handle holds up well in the shower, however, storing it outside of the shower will allow it, and more importantly, the blade, to properly dry. Like any wooden utensil, it should not soak in water.

Our recipe for a smart, simplified shave?

  1. Mach3™ Blade.
  2. Akamai Razor Handle made from FSC sustainably harvested beechwood.
  3. 3-in-1 Bar — an excellent lubricant for shaving.
  4. Skin Fuel to soothe, nourish and condition the skin.

You can buy these products separately, or purchase the Akamai Shave Kit to get started.

Q: How can I extend the life of my razor blades (50-75 or more uses)?

  1. Start with a high-quality blade, the best we found is Gillette Mach3... (Superior engineering and the highest quality stainless steel blades deliver an outstanding shave while staying sharper longer).
  2. Rinse the blades thoroughly with hot water until clean.
  3. Shake off excess water and tap the back of the cartridge on a towel. You can also blow into the back of the cartridge head to push out water.
  4. Rub the front of the cartridge upward on towel 3-5x.

Blades stay attached

I love that the razor head doesn't pop off as it did on the plastic handles I used before this. It's well designed ergonomically and nice-looking enough that I don't have to hide it. Best part....reducing plastic waste!

Ralf O.


Best shaving experience ever!

I love the handle, and the razors are very effective.

Bee A.

Perfect razor handle design! Love the feel and balance of this handle. I really can’t say enough good things about it. Not using disposable pink razors ever again! The quality and directions provided will make for a lifetime investment. I didn’t realize the quality of other razors was so poor till I made the change to Akamai’s products.

Kat J.
Never gave "ergonomic" much thought, until now

I guess I never gave razor handle design much thought, and it didn't seem lacking in my routine. Then I tried this handle. It is so much easier and nicer! This is a massive upgrade from the plastic crap I've been using. I kinda feel a little fancy using it, which I also like. But my favorite part is not having massive anxiety about the waste generated from continuously throwing out disposable razors. Fingers crossed it lasts as long as you say it will - I'll do my part and take care of it and the blades! Easier to use, more luxurious, AND less wasteful - 5 stars. Thanks Akamai!
