What is Blade Buddy?

The inspiration behind Blade Buddy came from inventor Celso Martell’s visit to a local butcher shop, where he noticed the butcher sharpening his knife by running it along a steel rod, in a similar fashion to traditional barbers who use leather strops to sharpen their razors. Mr. Martell wondered whether it would be possible to develop a similar tool for disposable razor blades, and after 5 years of research and development, Blade Buddy was conceived.

With every shave, razor blades lose their sharpness and gradually wear out. The action of pulling a razor against the skin causes the blade’s cutting edge to curl. Invisible to the naked eye, over time this tip rounding makes shaving less and less comfortable, often resulting in nicks, cuts, razor burn and ingrown hair. Blade Buddy’s patented, grooved silicone surface effectively straightens these microscopic bends back into alignment, so each time you shave your blade is the best that it can be.

With Blade Buddy, every shave is smoother and more comfortable, regardless of the razor you use, and your skin is protected from irritation caused by dull blades.
