Over two billion plastic razors and cartridges are discarded annually in the U.S. alone. Well Kept’s goal is to reduce that number.

Well Kept's Blade Bank is the perfect place to safely store your used safety razor blades. Once full, send it back to Well Kept to recycle it for you AND send you a new blade bank.

While used blades are recyclable, due to how sharp they are, they cannot be recycled in your curb-side pickup. Blade Bank fits 80-100 blades.

Replacement blades are a fraction of the cost [$.70 vs. multi-blade cartridges that cost between $3-7]. Although initially more expensive, after only two years, you will save at least $25 [the more you shave, the more you save]; after five years that number increases to over $145.

Size + Contents: 7.5 cm x 4.3 cm x 1.6 cm; made of stainless steel

How to Use: To initially assemble or change your blade, take hold of your razor in one hand, then grip the head of the razor in the other. Be sure to pinch from the top and bottom in order to avoid the blade which protrudes from the sides. Unscrew the handle and gently lay the pieces on whichever surface you’re working on. If you’re changing out the blade this is a great time to give all three pieces a good rinse. If you’ve been using the shave oil, a quick bath in soapy water works great. 

Putting it back together is simple. Just position the blade onto the top cover [piece 1]. Position the next on top of the blade ensuring the spacer [the elevated square visible on piece 3] touches the blade. Finally, screw the handle back into place. Remember to hold the head steady from the top and bottom rather then sides in order to avoid pinching the blade [which will be brand new and sharp]. Screw the handle on firmly [you’ll notice the blade will flex a little, that’s totally normal].
