Different from the Basic razor, The Albatross ‘Flagship Safety Razor’ is slightly longer in length and heavier for added durability and a better shave. Additionally, The Flagship razor is highly polished to ensure long lasting protection from any potential corrosion.
We feel this is the better of the two short handle options. Though this is more expensive than The Basic, it has upgraded components and significantly less maintenance because of its high-polished finish. Considering this could be the last razor you'll ever buy, we think the extra expense is worth it .
This razor has a butterfly opening, which twists open from the bottom making it easy to load replacement blades. Each razor comes with 10 quality double-edged razor blades and a hemp drawstring bag.
You can also pick up more replacement blades here.
